Rationale behind the request is that we need several sortable lists from categories for creating "Open Maintenance Tasks" for our community page. But we don't have such Bots (or Bot creators) to complete this task, and thus, we really need this Extension desperately as the work is hurdled due to this lack!
|Open||None||T14423 DynamicPageList activation/deployment requests (tracking)|
|Declined||None||T102821 Enable Extension:DynamicPageList (Wikimedia) on Hindi Wikipedia (hiwiki)|
|Open||None||T124841 Address performance needs for Wikimedia from DynamicPageList extension so that it can be deployed to further wikis|
|Open||None||T287380 Decide on the future of DPL|
I am aware that it is basically used by wikinews but the reason behind this request is that we don't have any other alternatives. And we are not a large wiki!? I also believe, it is the number and kind of lists created using this extension which will decide how much load it exerts on the database.
@Ladsgroup ! Thanks for your kind response! All we need is to get a list of articles from a choosen category and display that list on a project page. Number of such categories is about 20 from which we have to get such lists (one from each category) and maximum number of articles to be listed at an istant would not exceed 100. Also, we need to sort this list by creation date or by the date it was added to the category.
I think this task has no issue of understanding Hindi. Link to
