Event Timeline

Meanwhile, over on T115852: Fix unclear maintenance responsibilities for some parts of MediaWiki core repository

At the arch summit I said I would work on this after the 1.27 release, and it kind of dropped off my radar. I'll work on this later this week.

Thanks @Legoktm!

I see it's being updated: how do we know when it's (basically) done?

It will never be done ;)

I think for the purposes of this task it probably is done. Since this task was filed (with not a whole lot of discussion on the plans in it) a lot has changed: https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Developers%2FMaintainers&type=revision&diff=2483315&oldid=2079907

@Legoktm are you ok with resolving this task? Do you remember any specifics there were in mind for this task that weren't written down and not yet done?

See also the work I (and others) did on T115854

(1) Checking the page matches the current situation:
It might be good to go through that page, updating it based on the currently in-use extensions.
E.g. I see Extension:UserMerge is listed in the "Key extensions" section, whereas it should be in the "MediaWiki extensions deployed by WMF" section. (my mistake, it was already there)
I'm not sure where there's a canonical list of "currently installed extensions"?

(2) Not part of the initial task, but... updating/verifying
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Upstream_projects
would probably be equally valuable?

Thanks! Using that and the other 2 extension-list-x pages in that directory, I've updated Developers/Maintainers a bit more (following on James' large updates).

Idk whether Upstream_projects is worth worrying about here/now. (I've poked at it a bit)

Status is back to where Greg left it:

@Legoktm: Last call before I will declare that you (and some others) fixed this task. :P (Thanks for that!)

And.... resolving. If there is still work to track, please set the status of this report back to "Open" via the Add Action...Change Status dropdown. Thanks!
