Update checkStorage.php to not use deprecated Revision::getText
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

maintenance/storage/checkStorage.php uses Revision::getText in line 446, but it has been deprecated by wikidata team in favour of getContent()

It should probably set $wgContentHandlerTextFallback to 'serialize' before calling ContentHandler::getContentText(). But why isn't the fallback available as an extra parameter of that method?

Added a new parameter to ContentHandler::getContentText() in changeset 45936

Updated checkStorage.php in changeset 45937

This last one assumes the text table will always store the serialized object. Needs review by someone familiar with Wikidata contenthandlers.

ContentHandler::getContentText() is really just a stop gap when you need "some kind of text". If you already know that you want the serialized text, use $content->serialize().
