evil-plans2.txt, or how to get rid of CentralAuth from the Wikimedia cluster.

  • synchronize local user ids to be the same as the global id
    • unclear if this is even possible now that we serialize user ids in various places. Maybe just a mapping table and an API in core to do the translation
  • move centralauth.globaluser table to be a global `user` table
  • implement SSO in core
  • split crap like global userrights into their own extensions
  • wikisets --> core for configuration probably
  • global rename goes back into Renameuser
  • global user merge goes into the trash can
