The Distribution extension will initially provide extension and core deployment metadata, and later on also create deployment packages. The Deployment extension enables installation and updating of extensions and MediaWiki itself. It obtains deployment packages by using the API provided by the Distribution extension, parses these and applies them. For this it provides several special pages.
