The CIDR calculator, which is part of the CheckUser extension now, should be brought to the MediaWiki core. It is very useful for calculating ranges when one wants to conduct a range block.

T28751: Extensions that should really be core functionality (tracking)
They are related since the tool will be surfaced on Special:RangeContributions, whether in core or not.
I'd say let's not merge this either way until we have consensus to move the module into core.
Hasn't been triaged, but we were planning on bundling it in with T145912. Until then I can't think of a good place to put it, maybe Special:Block? I just hate we are (indirectly) encouraging range blocks when there is no way to check the ranges.
Until we find a good home for this calculator, you could link to an external tool in a MediaWiki system message, such as MediaWiki:Blockiptext, which will show up at Special:Block. On the English Wikipedia we are linking to several different tools but in my opinion the best one is http://nativeforeigner.com/calc/. Hope this helps.
