As of 2019, the wiki has been updated to be a little easier to use. But, for the time being, John Milner has taken up the mantle of administrating the wiki, and fixing it when something seems broken.

New tip: If you want to make a wiki edit, but you're a little stuck, ask about it on the discussion forum, or during OpenHack.

We're using the SendGrid extension for email now, but it didn't respect MediaWiki:Emailsender. Here's a quick hack to fix that:

diff --git a/SendGridHooks.php b/SendGridHooks.php
  index c11a1ca..e47db92 100644
  --- a/SendGridHooks.php
  +++ b/SendGridHooks.php

                  // Get $to and $from email addresses from the array and MailAddress object respectively
  -               $from = new SendGrid\Email( null, $from->address );
  +               global $wgEnotifUseRealName;
  +               $from_name = ( $wgEnotifUseRealName && $from->realName !== '' ) ? $from->realName : $from->name;
  +               $from = new SendGrid\Email( $from_name, $from->address );
                  $to = new SendGrid\Email( null, $to[0]->address );
                  $body = new SendGrid\Content( "text/plain", $body );
                  $mail = new SendGrid\Mail( $from, $subject, $to, $body );
