Another useful feature of Discourse is that it can export whole categories (to json, by the sounds of it). So we could make those dumps available, if desired. (I'm not sure how it handles private topics etc.)

Here's the summary data of gadgets with wiki count, the number of wikis they're default on, and the total/active user counts: F10785334. The active user count isn't enabled on all wikis, so that's not necessarily right.

I think it makes sense to keep the tool name in the URL. So we'd have discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org and discourse.wmflabs.org to start with, which would (if sucessful) move to discourse.mediawiki.org and discourse.wikimedia.org? @Niharika I think there's too much similarity between discourse and discuss for them to be used for different things.

I think the main drawback with StackOverflow is that we'd be splitting things over a number of different Stack Exchange sites: https://stackoverflow.com/ for programming, https://serverfault.com/ for sysadmining, https://webapps.stackexchange.com/ for MediaWiki administration, https://webmasters.stackexchange.com/ for general website stuff... there are more that would probably be relevant. Of course, some projects have their own stack exchange sites, e.g. https://drupal.stackexchange.com/ and https://wordpress.stackexchange.com/ spring to mind, so perhaps there's an option for https://mediawiki.stackexchange.com/ (I think it was proposed once, but they don't keep old proposals visible, or at least I can't find it).

I think the service and a couple of value objects (PreferenceDescription and PreferenceDescrpition?) are the way to go, but that doing so in one leap is too much. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/389665 is an attempt to move toward this better architecture, but not do it all at once; it is fully backwards compatible.

I really like the Stackexchange sites, and keep an eye on a few of them for MediaWiki questions, and I think that if we're to go for the separate Q&A-style site then we should just use the sites that already exist and have large communities. Sure, they're not Libre, but they're already in use and are working. In fact, even if we go with an in-house site, we will always be needing to respond on Stackexchange as well, because people will continue to ask questions over there.

Is there any danger to blindly removing text from pages that return an error code of 10? i.e. just looping through the whole work, and running djvused -u file.djvu -e "select x; remove-txt; save" on the corrupt pages? You're doing it interactively — is there a something that makes you abort the process sometimes?

Samwilson added a comment to T178137: MediaWiki-Vendor is an unnecessary unique practice that must be manually maintained.

My understanding is that composer support came before extension registration, and amongst some extension developers (mostly enterprise-y ones, maybe) was seen as a great way to load an extension without having to add anything to LocalSettings.php. Mostly SMW-related extensions, I think (I was working on a SMW company intranet at the time, developing in-house extensions that all loaded themselves without anything further than an entry in composer.json, and I remember converting some extensions to be like this because it was seen as a good practice). So, it was a feature, not a bug! :-)
