I can add some example use cases for NASA and enterprise wikis. Should I add them here or to T106898 ?

A couple things to consider when addressing the intermittent connectivity case:

I understand starting off with a phab task, but I think it would be appropriate to use a wiki page to collaborate on this product ;)

Darenwelsh added a comment to T100217: Prepare presentation for Wikimania 2015 regarding MediaWiki usage outside of WMF community/projects.

After my experience at the Hackathon including discussions with many of the WMF and Wikipedia chapters, I think we need to be careful how we present ourselves, our interest in using MW, and what we want in our relationship with the WMF. While some members of the WMF acknowledge the potential for MW use in an enterprise environment, I think most of those in WMF ended up there out of their personal goals to support in the way of volunteerism and world impact. So I imagine we might come across as “entrepreneurs” or “capitalists looking to benefit using their work”. I think we need to adjust our wikivangelism to show that we’re just doing the same thing of trying to share information between communities, but our communities happen to be a “job environment” instead of purely volunteer. For James and myself specifically, we want to share the cumulative expertise of EVA with others within NASA. Unfortunately, it is protected behind a firewall, but that shouldn’t mean we don’t share our knowledge. So maybe what I’m getting at is the main difference between us and voluntary/open wikis is just the firewall. We still have the same underlying goal of sharing the sum of all knowledge within that community. Because we have the same goals, we want to contribute back to the WMF community by using our enterprise resources toward developing new extensions to benefit everyone using MW.

Though I wish our wiki was in space, on the ISS, we're not there yet (we need a better offline sync method). I'll shorten the name on the Program page.
