I have 2 feature requests:

Would it be possible to have the default search include the Documentation namespace?

Marc: What do you mean by the "default search"? The top text field and go/search buttons are the standard search provided by WikiMedia. I don't know WikiMedia well enough to modify it. Doesn't it search all pages? The second text field searches Google, and the third GMane. Should I add another field?

I was thinking just the main search page and the top Search box. It should be fairly simple, all you need to do is update the $wgNamespaceToBeSearchedDefault variable. (http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgNamespacesToBeSearchedDefault) --Jonathan Arkell


Also, can you add the Special:RecentChanges link to the main navigation?

Marc: sure, but where? In the "toolbox", or "contributing", or "overview" sections?

I think the "Overview" or "Contributing" are both good places. --JA
