As this is a microtask of T89135 and not an individual tech-project of it's own that can be proposed in Outreachy/GSoC - I'm removing the Possible-Tech-Projects tag.

TasneemLo set Security to None.

I can be a resource for this.

This task nowadays feels pretty vague to me. It's likely a good task for someone about to dive into the codebase anyway, but apart from that it sounds a bit like a task in search of a problem to solve. :)

I guess we better close this task. Now, data retrieval for MediaWiki is done with a Perceval backend, which probably gets all the needed information.

@jgbarah: Hah, thanks! I was not entirely sure about that. I'll close the remaining MediaWikiAnalysis tasks and updated the wikipage accordingly.
