I rebuilt trunk on Windows with --enable-wiki-publisher.  The first
problem is that the extension does not appear to get packaged.  If you
have the Windows build tree handy, then you can find the extension here:
  mail/solver/420/wntmsci12.pro/bin/swext/wiki-publisher.oxt
I went into the extension manager and told it to add this extension. The
extension manager appears to successfully add the extension, and when I
look at the File->Send submenu, I see an entry for "To MediaWiki..."
menu entry, but it is grayed out and can't be selected.  I don't know
how to debug this.

Can someone with a Linux or Mac build tree try this experiment?  A 4.1.4
build tree should be fine as long as you configured with
--enable-wiki-publisher.
