Add OAuth 2.0 support to MediaWiki
Open, LowPublic

Description

People would like to sign up with an existing Wikimedia account to https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ . Discourse ships with an Oauth2 plugin. Having OAuth2 support in MediaWiki would help in getting people sign up with an existing Wikimedia account to https://discourse.wmflabs.org/ . Developing an Oauth 1.0 plugin for Discourse isn't an alteranative says https://meta.discourse.org/t/does-anyone-have-an-oauth-1-0-plugin-sample/38779: "there is a reason everyone switched to 2.0".

This would also obliviate the need for T120469 and allow us to make PAWS use of oauth secure.
