Update the php-wikidiff2 package
Closed, DuplicatePublic


I'd like to request an update of the php-wikidiff2 Debian package. This is a Wikimedia-maintained package of Wikidiff2, the PHP extension used for computing diffs.

A recent change (3fc19bfc2f) brings a significant speed improvement to diffing, and it'd be nice to see it deployed.

@WMDE-Fisch did the last release.

I can do this release. We're also currently working on a fix in wikidiff2 that I expect to be merge during the next week. I would like to wait with that new version until then.

Tagged and released, can be deployed now @MoritzMuehlenhoff

Note that the package increased a lot in size due to included benchmark files.
