Wow the editor is amazing. If it seems to work well with most browsers,
I'd move it to the production wiki.

I hadn't seen the new login page of Mediawiki 1.16. Looks great.

However, after I login with my OpenID (https://id.sugarlabs.org/bernie),
I get the following php warning:

  array_key_exists [function.array-key-exists]: The second argument should be either an array or an object in /srv/www-sugarlabs/wiki/extensions/OpenID/SpecialOpenIDLogin.body.php on line 265

I agree with you.

If their login interface looks anything like the Mediawiki one, then
OpenID is no longer a problem.
