Created page with "MediaWiki vendors is intended to be the place for third-party MediaWiki users to voice their problems, desires and suggestions and to collaborate with each other and MediaWiki..." New page MediaWiki vendors is intended to be the place for third-party MediaWiki users to voice their problems, desires and suggestions and to collaborate with each other and MediaWiki developers in order to improve MediaWiki. Below is a [[ list of businesses offering MediaWiki consulting, support, installation, development, customization, training, hosting, etc. Please feel free to add yourself or any vendor you know of to the list. The discussion page holds discussions on various topics brought up by vendors or developers. Anyone is welcome to start a new discussion if the topic they are interested in is not there already. Please join the discussions and give us feedback so we can make MediaWiki better for everyone. The page is currently maintained by [[User:Mitevam|Mitevam]] as part of her internship with the Wikimedia Foundation. ===Active Vendors=== The list is in progress and suggestions are welcome. Also, I have included contact information according to my best judgement but it is still to be confirmed what the best communication method with each business is.
