Factoring page update logic out of WikiPage
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

As part of implementing Multi-Content-Revisions, a new PageUpdater interface was introduced into core, see T174038 (original spec: MCR Page Update Controller).

With the initial implementation merged, there is still a lot of legacy code to be refactored (tracked as T196087). The purpose of this RFC is to ensure agreement on the architecture we should target with this refactoring. An analysis of the current situation, our needs, and an overview of the future architecture can be found here:

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Daniel_Kinzler_(WMDE)/MCR-PageUpdater

This architecture is fairly high level, it does not discuss concrete interfaces or implementations. The architecture has already been vetted within the MCR team. This RFC is intended to ensure broad agreement on the big picture.

@daniel This could do with a more concrete problem statement, and one or more stakeholders/affected parties we want to hear from at minimum.

Untagging old RFC task that predates our current process. Feel free to retag if it is still meant as RFC, including the template in the task description.

I think this was largely about creating DerivedPageDataUpdater which has been done, so the task can be resolved, but maybe @daniel has more accurate recollections.
