Implement global gadgets (WMF-wide)
OpenPublic

Description

It should be possible to have global gadgets, that are enabled by default on each WMF wiki. This is specially useful for keeping a single central copy of popular gadgets, such as hiding global notices, or HotCat, WikiMiniAtlas, etc.

The possible repositories would be Meta-wiki or MediaWiki.org (see also T59336: Make metawiki the central OAuth wiki).

This probably depends on T16950: Support global preferences to be fixed first

unlikely that i'll touch this, so re-assigning to wikibugs

Although application/usage will still depend on Global preferences, this will be made possible by the ResourceLoader2 / Global gadgets implementation coming this summer.

Presumably a "Game of Thrones"-type summer. ;-)
