WeRelate is running on a very old version of MediaWiki. It needs to be migrated to the latest version. Ideally I think we should create a new branch from the git repo at http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Download_from_Git MediaWiki . But I'm not a git expert, and since the existing branch is ''not'' based upon the git repo, I'm not sure whether its kosher to simply add the MediaWiki git repo as an origin and create the new branch from there. I'd really like to hear advice from someone with more "git fu" than I have.
