MediaWiki has a reputation of not handling UTF-8 chars very well when integrated with phpBB3. I had looked into this 1.5 years ago and there was no solution at that time that I could find.
You have to remember that it’s a separate system, running on completely different software.
And accounts do not have
to be integrated within phpBB3. It’s just a nice-to-have. And no, the wiki was started long before it was brought to phpBB.com -- so there was no reason to consider it until it was brought here. -- Again, it did not have to be considered, it’s just a nice feature to have.

That should not be surprising. wiki does not equal roadmap. The wiki is for coding documentation.

This has nothing to do with having a roadmap available or not.
There are many software companies (commercial and OSS) that neither need nor use roadmaps.
I’m not saying that we either do or do not, but this really has nothing to do with the wiki.
Please continue the discussion of feature wants + roadmap in a new topic. Thanks.
