Make short description work independent of Wikibase (create new short description extension)
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Currently short extension is used in various places (Vector skin and VisualEditor) and it will be nice for 3rd party wikis to have this feature without installing Wikibase.

Note:

  1. Changing the name of existing page property may be considered a breaking change.
  2. We may also enable this extension on other wikis, though such description will be overrided by Wikidata description if they are connected to a Wikidata item (it will be used for, e.g. , user pages). We may introduce a tracking category for pages with description overrided by Wikidata (this is useful for other wikis which borrowed short description template from enwiki).
