probably would drop mssql, oracle, might drop postgres <- narrow scope would be just do this
if people reaaaaally want better abstraction we need better systems -> make a separate RFC later to figure that out
for discussion next week

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Architecture_committee/2014-10-08#RFCs_to_triage

I doubt it'll end up being accepted as-is. However there's some useful discussion happening on the talk page.

The didcussion on #wikimedia-office indicates that his can not be accepted as is.

  • there is interested in keeping PG support
  • it owuld be nice to have support for some db systems as extensions, but the details are unclear

The consensus was that since it was unclear what to do, we'd think some more and then talk agin.
