Per-site configuration system for reports_bot
Open, MediumPublic


In order for reports_bot to operate on Wikipedias other than English (T116666), there needs to be a system for creating WikiProject–page indices for wikis other than English Wikipedia. There needs to be a system for cataloging different indexing strategies for different wikis. For example, the current corresponds to enwiki.

Important question: As MediaWiki-extensions-PageAssessments gets deployed to more wikis, will this even be necessary?

We need some form of per-site configuration anyway. For example, sites have custom names for things like the wikiproject.json file, and there's localization questions with the bot's messages.
