Remove usage of MEDIAWIKI_JOB_RUNNER from WikimediaEvents extension
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The MEDIAWIKI_JOB_RUNNER global constant is not reliable and after an audit (T244828) we have decided to deprecate and remove it.

The use of MEDIAWIKI_JOB_RUNNER in WikimediaEvents should be removed.

@Naike: Could you explain what/who exactly this task is stalled on ("If a report is waiting for further input (e.g. from its reporter or a third party) and can currently not be acted on"), please?

(Smallprint, as general orientation for task management: If you wanted to express that nobody is currently working on this task, then the assignee should be removed and/or priority could be lowered instead. If work on this task is blocked by another task, then that other task should be added via Edit Related Tasks...Edit Subtasks. If this task is stalled on an upstream project, then the Upstream tag should be added. If this task requires info from the task reporter, then there should be instructions which info is needed. If this task is out of scope and nobody should ever work on this, then task status should have the "Declined" status.)
