Get mirror of IDS Extension repository set up in Gerrit/Diffusion
Open, HighPublic

Description

In order to get the IDS Extension deployed to production, we'll need to have it set up in Gerrit. Apparently @awight has already requested this, but it is pending feedback from the extension maintainer (since July).

@QChris: Can you change those to be "IDS" instead of "Ids" (per similar extensions like "RSS", "OAI", "TrustedXFF", etc.)?

The thing is that there is no clear convention on lower/upper case for abbreviations in extension names.
Some extensions use all caps. Some extensions only captizalize the first letter of abbreviations (e.g.: Html2Wiki, AjaxLogin, ShortUrl, …).

As the extension is called Ids (lower case ds) on its extension page, we should follow that lead and also choose the lower case ds in the repo name.

@QChris: The difference between Html2Wiki, AjaxLogin, etc and Ids is that "Ids" can easily be misread and the others cannot. Most people will read Ids as "IDs" rather than "IDS", potentially causing confusion. I would be happy to rename the extension page, etc, to match.

I think 'IDS' makes more sense than 'Ids' — I keep reading it wrong myself. It won't be too hard to rename it everywhere, and better to do so before it becomes any more embedded. If there's no convention to follow, lets just go with what's easier to read.

or UIDS , because originally it means Unicode's Ideographics Description Sequence spec.

@QChris: Any update on setting this to "IDS"?
