HipHop: need developers
I need to get back to work on reviews and deployments and other such
strategic things. I hope the work I've done on HipHop support is
enough to get the project started.

Initial benchmarks are showing a 5x speedup for article parsing, which
is better than we had hoped for. So there are big gains to be had
here, both for small users and for large websites like Wikimedia and
Wikia.

There's a list of things that still need doing under the "to do"
heading at:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/HipHop

I'll be available to support any developers who want to work on this.

This is something I'm interested in and hope to put a little more time
into in the near future once the 1.17 release is behind us.
