Agenda

  • Address wiki spam (Spambots are now the most active "contributors")
    • Use norefer on links to make it less attractive? (default in newer MediaWiki)
    • More conter-measures? (e.g. delete accounts or auto-revert changes by identified spambots)
    • Or why not merely install a CAPTCHA hack for MediaWiki (the software for this wiki)?
  • OggPCM
  • The new speex.org site is ready, but someone (with permissions) needs to "install" it instead of the old one.
  • Vorbis stills need more support on portable players. Shouldn't a team of Public Relations cover this issue by contacting as many player producer companies as possible?
