Update GeSHi to 1.0.8.10 on Wikimedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Author: protonk

Description:
Attempting to highlight syntax for the R programming language in wikipedia using Extension:SyntaxHighlight GeSHi results in the following error:

GeSHi Error: GeSHi could not find the language rsplus (using path /usr/local/apache/common-local/wmf-deployment/lib/GeSHi-1.0.8.4/geshi/) (code 2)

The error also lists a number of supported languages (rsplus not among them). The error can be recreated by going to the following file page on wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:First_order_hsked.png) and removing the comments.

I don't know if this is an error in the mediawiki site (as in, R/S+ is not a supported language), or we have the wrong revision installed (but I think the listed langauges on the mediawiki page are for 1.0.8), or because of another local problem.

On a political note, R is Free software, so for our stats and econ articles if we include code it would be better for FOSS to use R as opposed to SAS. That's a minor point though.

This will just happen as a matter of course in the next big code update to the site...

Not true. WMF GeSHi does not use the svn:external.

The "next big code update" has been released and GeSHi was not part of it. Please update now, we need the new version for some projects on german Wikibooks.

The SVN external for GeSHi is done seperately, hence not being in the "last big code update"

Tagging for bugsmashing. This bug is already too old and easy to fix.

Thanks Reedy for having taken care of this bug!
