Require ext-iconv in MediaWiki's composer.json, and suggest ext-intl
Closed, ResolvedPublic


when running install.php (after recently upgrading my php and possibly missing some php extensions), I get:

Warning: The intl PECL extension is not available to handle Unicode normalization, falling back to slow pure-PHP implementation.
If you run a high-traffic site, you should read a little on Unicode normalization.
*Fatal: PHP must be compiled with support for the iconv extension.*

ext-iconv should be added in composer.json as a requirement and intl as suggested.
