Hmm. So https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-Dashiki displays that there's already an extension.json file which is not at rEAND. Special:Version link on Meta-Wiki for Dashiki links to a somewhat 404 page. What is the correct repo, then? Thanks.

mediawiki/extensions/Dashiki in Gerrit has an extension.json file. If there's confusion about git repositories or 404 links, please file that as a separate task.

@Legoktm so, to clarify, what is the right extension we're using on Wikimedia: rANAD or the Gerrit one you linked? I can file a task but I need to know exactly what to request. Thanks.

@MarcoAurelio: rANAD is not an extension, it's only related to mediawiki-Dashiki by the word "Dashiki". Which, in this context, means "dashboards on wikis". It's a system that allows people to build dashboards by writing a wiki page as a configuration. For example, this dashboard:

https://analytics.wikimedia.org/dashboards/browsers/

Is configured by this page:

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Config:Dashiki:SimpleRequestBreakdowns

We understand this is a bit confusing, but hopefully this clears it up and we welcome help explaining this on either the extension help page: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Dashiki or on the page where the system is described: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Analytics/Systems/Dashiki

@Milimetric Thank you. So what we see at Special:Version@meta is Extension:Dashiki and not rANAD? Thanks.

Yes, Special:Version@meta links to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Dashiki. The auto-added link to phabricator is broken because there's no phab mirror of the gerrit mediawiki-Dashiki repository. I'm not sure what the right procedure is there, it's not my area.

@Milimetric Thank you very much. You've solved my question. Best regards.
