WikimediaMaintenance: remove dependency on pre-MCR database schema
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The extension should not rely on pre-MCR fields in the revision table, and should not assume that the text table is used. Specifically:

  • remove all references to rev_text_id or ar_text_id.
  • remove usages of Revision::getRevisionText()
  • remove reliance on the 'text' flag to Revision::getQueryInfo()

See the parent task(s) for more details.

Care should be taken to maintain backwards compatibility with older versions of MediaWiki, as declared in extension.json.
