User:Legoktm/Right to fork integration

Brainstorming for now.

To prove our commitment to the right to fork, we should have automated integration tests that try to set up an isolated instance of MediaWiki that is functionally equivalent to Wikimedia wikis.

Probably it would use a Debian VM (with some predetermined memory/CPU), download dumps, install MW, import the dumps (sql+xml), and then verify some basic functionality works.

The main work is probably finding all the gaps where data is missing or problematically incomplete, and resolving those issues.
