That extension used to pass CI tests. In mediawiki/core there is a recentish structure test to ensure that special pages do not fatal. On Feb 19th @Umherirrender enhanced that test to to also fail when a notice is thrown: rMW4743ab9efc9c: Do not suppress php notices in SpecialPageFatalTest. Which is good!

Note that is apparently broken under HHVM which happily pass the test, but that is a different bug/task really.

The reason for the lack of WEBDAV_AUTH_TOKEN is that the extension depends on the SabreDAV library. See docs/README.txt:

MediaWiki prequisites

You will need to install the SabreDAV library. You can do this using 'composer'.
composer install
in the extension root directory.
See [] for details.
At the moment we use the version 1.8 of SabreDAV, because 2.x is not compatible
to PHP versions lower than 5.4. Unfortunately some of our customers still use
5.3 and can not be updated in a short term.

Which could be refreshed :)


    "require": {
        "composer/installers": "~1.0",
        "sabre/dav": "~3"

So we just need to switch CI from vendor jobs to composer based job and it should be fine.

side note: really we should just always default to use composer and only use vendor for repos deployed on the wikimedia cluster. But that is yet another task

hashar moved this task from Backlog to Repo setup on the Continuous-Integration-Config board.

And indeed the WebDAV extension is quite old. That was an effort by Jack Bates then a student, it might have been a one off experiment or maybe that is used by its university. It is not on any public wiki (based on ).

Its original author seems to be . He might have more informations/details.

So potentially, we could just archive that extension via hmm yet another task in Cleanup :]

The repo of this extension was created in February, so I would not assume this is an old extension. I may look old due to imports, but there must be a fresh request to get this extension and cleanup seems not the best approve when it stays only 2 month here.

Works now :)

It's the same error on with composer jobs, so this seems to have another issue

Sorry I just assumed WEBDAV_AUTH_TOKEN or WEBDAV_AUTH_MW defines were being provided by the composer dependency sabre/dav. I should have checked that.

I also found the hard way that is obsolete. The repository has been taken over and all the legacy code removed! So the code is entirely different from what the wiki page describe ..

Anyway @Osnard and @Pwirth should be able to find what is supposed to provide the missing constants WEBDAV_AUTH_TOKEN and WEBDAV_AUTH_MW :)

@hashar Sorry that I missed this! Hallo Welt team has published this extension just recently. You are right it is a complete rewrite. I did not have the time to update the extension description page. We have published the latest version from our internal git repository. Unfortunately since introduction of extension.json there is no good way to define contants anymore [1]. We will need to switch to swing literals.

In our setups we add those constants in the LocalSettings.php

define( "WEBDAV_AUTH_NONE", 0 );
define( "WEBDAV_AUTH_TOKEN", 1 ); 
define( "WEBDAV_AUTH_MW", 2 );

I am goint to update the extension description page and hopefully soon switch to string literals for configuration.
