If you want to start discussing some of these before I get there, go for it!

  1. Delete [10] and User talk:Kynikos/Dm-crypt with LUKS when the restructuring is done
  2. Ask Pierre to publish LocalSettings.php and include/require there the database connection data from another file, or vice versa publish a LocalSettings2.php that will be required in LocalSettings.php, where only the db connection data are stored (this can help hide the real location of the file with the connection data)
  3. Request to close FS#30045?
  4. Revise and possibly expand ArchWiki:Contributing
  5. Write checklists for the most common operations
  6. Internationalization:
  7. Templates:
  8. Maybe change the policy of deleting closed discussion to Wikipedia's archiving solution
  9. Regulate blank lines below section headings in Help:Style#Blank lines?
  10. Rename Table of contents to Category Tree?
  11. Disk Encryption should be mentioned in the Beginners' guide
  12. Mention p2p file sharing clients in Backup Programs?
  13. Split Common Applications/Games from Common Applications?
  14. Most if not all of these should be "alternative"
  15. Merge PKGBUILD Templates with PKGBUILD? See
  16. Forum-like presentation of the discussions in the wiki:
    • Use tables to show discussions like threads
    • Can show the number of threads/posts, last post date, users participating... through api queries
    • Initialize with a query to all talk pages, then maintain daily with the bot, querying the recent changes
    • Main page would list all the wiki talk namespaces
    • For each namespace (use subpages) list all the talks in chronological order with some details
    • For each talk (can't use subpages) display the number of discussions (parse section headings, also display the titles?)
  17. Submit dark CSS skin?
  18. Update content of Category:English with links to the most important articles and link it from Main page
  19. Do we really need localized Sandboxes? Sandbox (Português) Caixa de Areia (note it's categorized also under Category:Português)
    • Clean up the various subpages of Sandbox?
  20. Move Daemon to Daemons?
  21. Define how much time must pass before a dead link can be deleted since it was marked with linkrot
  22. Remember there are also MediaWiki:Sidebar, MediaWiki:Common.css and MediaWiki:Common.js, MediaWiki:Sitenotice, MediaWiki:Anonnotice, MediaWiki:Editnotice, MediaWiki:Talkpagetext, MediaWiki:Editinginterface, MediaWiki:Newarticletext, see mw:Manual:Interface/Sitenotice, mw:Help:Edit notice
  23. See if I can improve Python Package Guidelines a bit
  24. See if the short articles in Category:DeveloperWiki can be merged somewhere
  25. Merge Community repo candidates somewhere?
  26. Decide what to do with Community cleanup (merge with DeveloperWiki:Community_Repo_Cleanup?), Christmas Cleanup (merge with DeveloperWiki:Community_Repo_Cleanup?), Multilib Cleanup (merge with DeveloperWiki:Community_Repo_Cleanup?), Rebuilds:Libnl3, Berlios Packages, ArchHosting
    See Talk:Christmas Cleanup
    Make a proper DeveloperWiki namespace?
  27. Create an ArchWiki:Statistics page?
