Add WikiTeX to Wikimedia server farm
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description:
WikiTeX enables coding of music, chemical formulas, chess and much more. It has
been requested several times. My intention with this bug is to track issues that
WikiMedia og MediaWiki developers have with it, interest, and such.

Myself I think we should perhaps decide to use only a subset of the
functionality provided so as not to make things too complicated, and not start
using WikiTeX if we'd rather use something else (see f. ex. ABC music notation
standard at bug # 189).

From reading:
http://mail.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2004-December/thread.html#26670

it looks pretty clear that the major holdup preventing WikiTeX implementation is
security.

Removing shell keyword, this extension is unmaintained and even when it was it wasn't ready for WMF deployment (due to possibilities of DoS, code quality, lack of localization, etc).

This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
