Suggested to use an instance in the https://tools.wmflabs.org/openstack-browser/project/mwstake project on irc.

We'll use mwstakes for now. Will reopen if later we want different branding or access or quotas. Thanks!

We ended up using the externally-hosted enterprisemediawiki.org (as meza does not work on Debian yet), plush some boxes in the qna project for adding Debian support to meza (unrelated but was at hand and mwstakes is maxed out). Once that's done, I'd like to revisit this. Could use a better name, though. mediawiki-showcase? emw-showcase? Just emw / enterprisemediawiki?
