Friendly reminder: 1/13 @ 19:00 UTC - MediaWiki Workshop: Preparing extensions for MW 1.19 in #wikimedia-devEdit
This workshop will be an opportunity to share information about changes in MediaWiki 1.19 that may require revisions to extensions or skins. Also an opportunity for developers to ask questions regarding extension development.
Look forward to seeing you in IRC. :) --Varnent 06:20, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
Questions about your new reposEdit
I had a quick question regarding your new repositories that you requested. As best I can tell, these are all extensions to MediaWiki. If that is indeed the case, the convention is to place them in mediawiki/extensions/MyExtension, and not by the domain of the organization they're for. Thanks for clarifying, ^demon (talk) 22:28, 21 September 2012 (UTC)
thanks for the quick reply. Well, you are right. The repos I requested are for MediaWiki extensions. But they (most of them at least) are especially tailored to the projects requirements. A few might be refactored for general use later (like the Comments fork or the Translation extension) but the main purpose of the repos is to make deployment easier. I might have to explain this in a little more detail :)
The webplatform.org project is hosted by the W3C. Ryan Lane from the WMF has set up the server farm and deployment mechanism. In a mail to one of my colleagues he suggested to add our extensions to the WMF git repo so we can delpoy them more easily using the "salt" toolstack he installed on the projects servers. As I have little to none experience with "salt" and we are on a tight schedule I thought it would be wise to request the repos as soon as possible to meet Ryans suggestion. We have some more things to deploy (i.e. a Wordpress plugin, a Question2Answer auth module and even a whole PiWik codebase) that are not related to MediaWiki and I am not sure if it is okay to add them to the WMF repos. But if it is I thought it might be better to have a project related path.
If you think it would be better to place the repos in mediawiki/extensions that's totaly okay for me. Maybe we also should talk to Ryan, just to make sure I didn't get him wrong.
- Ah ok, this all makes a lot more sense now. Since you'll be adding things that aren't necessarily extensions, this repo structure sounds fine. I'll go ahead and set the repos up now. ^demon (talk) 18:39, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
- All your repos are now created. I added rvogel as the owner for all of them. If additional users are needed, they can be added using this page. Let me know if you have any other questions.
