Convert extensions to use new Config features workshop at 2015 MediaWiki Developer Summit
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

We recently added a set of Config classes to core to be used when accessing configuration variables, instead of using global scope. A lot of core has been converted to use these classes, but very few extensions have. We'll go over how to properly access Config options and to convert most uses of global variables. Then we'll pick extensions and start hacking!
