vanilla, smf import and mediawiki

Hi all.. first post here

I'm working to migrate an smf 2.0.x forum to vanilla.. using the porter script I already have all (almost) working
BTW, in the same community we use mediawiki too and we use a mediawiki extension to auth mediawiki's users against smf.
I need to maintain such a feature
I initially thought about creating in vanilla's db some views to keep using the same mediawiki's plugin, but I discovered that it won't work because once an user is verified, his password is no more hashed as in smf
I found a discontinued mediawiki extension to auth against vanilla, but I did not find any useful feedback about its status and use
I'd like to have some hints and feedback

moreover, OT in this topic, I'd like to know which plugins are used in this forum

    Authentication with other software is normally done with jsConnect. I have no experience with jsConnect, but you will find some information in the docs:

    There are also numerous discussions here which might be helpful.
