|mediawiki/extensions/StopForumSpam||master||+16 -4||Update wgSFSIPListLocation and wgSFSIPListLocationMD5 defaults|
Some potential issues:
- These defaults are very Wikimedia-production-specific, whereas many other wikis likely use a manually-donwloaded, local SFS file. Though I don't know this for sure, I'm just assuming based upon how the extension historically managed the SFS files. 76 or so wikis use the extension according to WikiApiary.
- Maybe it's not great to have defaults that imply the immediate download of an external resource by an extension?
- Currently blowing up the tests as it looks like setMwGlobals() isn't overriding these updated values.
