Clarify the documentation of HTMLForm
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

While working on T246162 we hit some confusion with the documentation of HTMLForm
There is documentation on mediawiki.org and in the codebase which differs drastically.

Goals

  • It is clear how the mw.org page relates to the docblock code and how the mw.org is updated
  • The canonical documentation is up to date and states that it is the canonical source.
  • The @todo block regarding section should be removed from the docblock

Event Timeline

Hey, can I start working on this?

@Ashuro07: Hi and welcome! See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/How_to_become_a_MediaWiki_hacker#Feedback,_questions_and_support
If you have a good technical understanding and can both find and compare the docs both on mediawiki.org and in the mediawiki/core git repo , sure! :)
