Quibble: deprecate and phase out EXT_DEPENDENCIES / SKIN_DEPENDENCIES
Open, MediumPublic


EXT_DEPENDENCIES and SKIN_DEPENDENCIES are generated by the CI configuration. They are bad for humans / reproducibility, instead the repositories should just be passed as arguments.

We first need to:

  • fix --run and --skip shallowing arguments such as: --run phpunit mediawiki/extensions/BoilerPlate. Which is sub task T218357

Just a breadcrumb for later. There's one reference to the old variables in jjb/mediawiki.yaml, for wikibase-{kind}-docker jobs, some special configuration for these jobs,

  • wikibase-client-docker
  • wikibase-repo-docker
  • parsoidsvc-parsertests-docker

, and an assignment in zuul/ which is probably easy to replace with direct arguments to quibble.
