In order to load this extension as a 'regular' extension in terms of the WMF deployment system the autoloader can not be generated by composer after cloning the git repo.
The class auto loading must be provided as part of the code contained in the git repo.
- Be a committed version of the composer generator autoloader in a different location?
- Be a list generated by the mediawiki core autoloader generating maint script?
- Be something else
Interesting task to note is T99865: Extension registration should support using a PSR-4 autoloader but that is not done yet!
