That extension doesn't appear to be used on any of the wikimedia sites atm, which means it will most likely need a developer review first.

See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Writing_an_extension_for_deployment for information on what is needed to get an extension reviewed before potentially deploying it on a wikisite.

From the extension wiki page:
This extension has been removed.

This extension has been removed from the MediaWiki.org extension collection, due to prolonged security issues with the code.

If you currently utilize this extension, it is recommended to disable the extension and upgrade to another extension that achieves the same desired outcome.

Closing.
