Hi @Zppix, thanks for taking the time to report this!
Unfortunately this report lacks some information: A description of an actual problem to solve.
If you have time and can still reproduce the problem, please add a more complete description to this report. Ideally, exact and clear steps to reproduce should allow any other person to follow these steps (without having to interpret those steps) and see the same results. Problems that others can reliably reproduce can get fixed faster. Thanks!

This isnt an issue, merely a suggestion

@Zppix: I was not challenging at all that this task is a suggestion.
Still this task is currently a proposed 'solution' in search of a problem. Please describe an actual problem to solve by your suggestion.

No problem will be solved but it will make it to where users of mediawiki could use user scripts as gadgets per say think of it like wordpress's plugin directory @Aklapper

@Zppix: It would generally help to avoid using the word "it" when "it" is not clear. :)

could use user scripts as gadgets

User scripts are gadgets so that line does not make sense.

think of it like wordpress's plugin directory

Then please describe which problem "wordpress's plugin directory" (whatever that is) solves, preferably in sentences with punctuation. Thanks.

Wordpress plugin directory is like mediawiki's get extentsions link. What i am saying make user scripts downloadable similar to extentsions so other non wmf wikis can use them.

Where is "mediawiki's get extentsions link"? Do you refer to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:ExtensionDistributor ?
Please be generally explicit and always provide links for statements so it's clear people discuss the same thing.

Aklapper renamed this task from Make user-created userscripts (from enwiki and such) a "plugin" to Allow easier downloading of userscripts/gadgets (from enwiki and such).Dec 19 2016, 2:56 PM

Proposing to decline in favor of T121470.

@Aklapper maybe merge the two tasks instead?

@Zppix: Feel free to close this task as a duplicate.
