Nice work JayP.

Agreed. We should ask ourselves what are the things that really need to be
done before launch. At least if we launch we can attract more developers. On
the technical side this is:

- Get the dropdown to work with Semantic Mediawiki. This entails:
  -> Getting the "controversy rating" to work as a semantic property.
  -> Getting "article quality" to work as a semantic property (and dropping
FlaggedRevs, using the CAPTCHA for spam protection)
  -> Getting the table to search by whatever language the user selects.
  -> Get the "% translated" column from Extension:Translate to show up in
the table

That's what I'm working on at the moment.

- Writing a guidelines page for translation and analysis. (

- i18n (localisation):
  -> The biggest problem here is figuring out the best way to translate the
little bits of text into other languages. For example, here
http://test.cablegatewiki.org/index.php?title=07PARIS4650 there is the text
"Create an Analysis of this cable in your Language!", what is the best way
to let users translate that piece of text?
  -> There needs to be some way to let the user pick their language when
they register on the site. Using the "languages" box on the page only sets
the language for that page.
