Please can I work on this issue?

@Ifygal3 - thanks for your offer of help :)

Unfortunately, this issue is not one that can be just picked up.

It's really being used as a "todo" task for the team at WMDE working on shape expressions for Wikidata. It doesn't really require any "code" to be written but is more a of a procedure that needs to be undertaken by someone who's already working on this new extension.

This probably means setting wmgUseWikibaseSchema to true for testwikidatawiki in InitialiseSettings.php.

I don't know where to leave this feedback, but I'll place it here for now:

  • This extension registers a generically called namespace named "Schema", this overlaps with at least one other extension already (EventLogging). I recommend choosing a more specific name.
  • This extension registers two generically called special pages, "Special:NewSchema" and "Special:SchemaText". I don't know what they do. Knowing Wikidata from a user perspective mainly, I would expect the name to be more clear and specific about what it is for.
  • It's unclear to me why this is going through the costly overhead of yet another Wikibase* MediaWiki extension. If the code is meant to be re-usable, perhaps publish it as a Composer library installed into Wikibase via vendor or gitmodule? I understand that is how other parts of Wikibase are organised. What end-user product story is the extension offering on its own? (It appears none, but I don't know for sure.)
