The current OO.o wiki is MediaWiki-powered. As a sysop, I spend some 
time reviewing the "Recent Changes" list. A setting of "most recent 100" 
usually lets me see all of today's and some of yesterday's changes.

Lately (since the Apache announcement) the traffic has fallen way off, 
but we still see an average of six or eight new user sign-ups every day. 
Most of those never make any contributions.

(I would offer my services over here as a sysop, but I don't know much 
about Confusion wikis and Meltdown syntax – well, something like that... 
I suppose I can learn.) --/tj/
