Basically what we work with is plain upstream mediawiki install.
Reason is simple. To keep update procedures clean we do not intend to
hack the core code of it. So first thing you would need to do is just

On top of that we have our skin(s). Those are custom and can be hacked
like you prefer. The one in use on userbase is "chihuahua", should be
used soon on techbase and community, too. See first link for the repo
