One of my pet issues with the OWASP Wiki has always been its interface, more
specifically how slow the workflow was when making updates and performing
actions like (for example) image uploads.

So, while I was developing the O2's API
development/customization/interoperability capabilities, I used the
MediaWiki as a case-study, and ended up creating a full blown MediaWiki API
and GUI.

There are tons of of features in the main Editor, but here are two videos
that shows two very powerful ones:

   - *MediaWiki Page Editor - Viewing, Editing and Creating content*:
   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP52dUWUjJ0  - use this to quickly edit
   Media Wiki Pages and upload images/screenshots
   - *MediaWiki Editor - Create Backup*:
   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P4So1YU4RtE - create an offline copy of
   the MediaWiki content: Pages, Category's Pages, User's Pages, Template's
   Pages and Files/Images/PPTs/PDFs (the example on this movie uses
   the separate O2 Platform website <http://o2platform.com> (but the same is
   valid for owasp.org) and it shows all features available in the O2's
   MediaWiki editor (btw, if you backup the OWASP website and chose the 'Files'
   options you will download 1G+ of files (which are a great resource btw :) ))

Let me know if you have any issues running these scripts (and no more
excuses that the WIKI is hard to use :)   )
