DynamicPageList installed on wiki

We've installed the DynamicPageList extension on the company wiki. The extension is:
a universal reporting tool for MediaWikis, listing category members and intersections with various formats and details ... Typically the selection of pages to be shown will be based on one or more categories. But there are many other choices for selection criteria, like e.g. author, namespace, date, name pattern, usage of templates or references to other articles.
This allows us to dynamically generate lists, such as most-popular pages, recently-edited pages and pages edited by certain authors. I initially found the extension in my quest for a way to organize our retrospectives and let interested people see at a glance, say, the last five retrospectives for a particular project.
