Automatic download extension.json by template ExtensionParametr

Want (talkcontribs)

Template Template:Extension do automatically load data from extension.json file. But what when is code new version in another branch? It is i.e. branch form-support of the Extension:AccessControl. This code is actualized up MediaWiki main branch, but code main branch of the extension was developed from my old obsolete version. Every not use accesslists based on template parameters for it I do extra branch, but users don't know because template not download extension.json from it.

Hi! Module:Extension currently answers only if the value of |needs-updatephp= parameter in {{Extension}} is yes, with a comment that it’s unclear whether “no” needs to be explicitly stated. Despite of this uncertainty, you removed |needs-updatephp=No for example here and here with the edit comment “now loaded from extension.json”. While this is certainly not true in this form, I wonder if there has been a discussion deciding on removing such parameters in the meantime. If there was (where?), it should be reflected in the module comment and your edit comments; if there wasn’t, why do you remove the parameters?

The current situation "certain extensions explicitly specify they don't need update.php to be run, whereas others do not" is clearly undesirable. I personally don't see the point of setting it to no; running update.php unnecessarily does no harm, and I suspect if a page is silent on whether it should be run, the typical uninformed user would not run it.

I believe I must have incorrectly interpreted that comment to mean that needs-updatephp=no is not supported at all, rather than not automatically specified. Either way, it should be auto-filled or not supported by the template at all (and I'm not aware of any discussion), rather than implemented ad hoc; the entire point of my edits was to avoid ad hoc duplication of data.

My previous partner developed Extension HighSlideGallery ... you recently edited its page, so letting you know that this extension still works under MW 1.35. It must use the old method of enabling in LocalSettings though. I may update it for native support under 1.22+ at some point, but I wanted to let admin know so that it doesn't get archived, since it's still working.

I added {{unmaintained extension}} to that page as part of a batch cleanup of extensions whose repository has had no code commits in more than 2 years. I have no plans of archiving it.

Congratulations on your successful request for adminship.

Is it possible to move the page Extension:BlueSpiceQrCode to the archived page Extension:QrCode since most users might look for a current extension there?

Pppery (talkcontribs)

Please post this at somewhere more central, such as Project:Current issues. Although I happen to be active at cleaning up the Extension namespace (both BlueSpice and non-BlueSpice extensions), I don't think it would be right for me to make this decision unilaterally.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

I suggest running for adminship here - I would be happy to nominate you. You'd be able to delete all of the cleanup yourself after a week, action speedy deletion, etc. Thoughts?

Pppery (talkcontribs)

It seems very surprising that a wiki would accept a user who has only been editing actively for about three weeks as an administrator.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

mediawiki is different from most content wikis, but I also didn't realize you had only been here for 3 weeks

Pppery (talkcontribs)

That said, if you think I would be accepted as an admin despite only being active for a few weeks, I would be willing to run. (I've been doing primarily wiki-agnostic cleanup for the last few days, so have very little idea of what the adminship standards for this wiki are.

...I've blocked and reverted what I saw was still live; let me know if you need help cleaning up after that vandal

Pppery (talkcontribs)

I think this might be the first time I've been personally targeted by a vandal in my entire four year career on Wikipedia.

DannyS712 (talkcontribs)

Unfortunately, I've gotten used to it; the only annoying thing is dealing with flow

Dinoguy1000 (talkcontribs)

I'd second you running for adminship here, you do good work. Certainly more than I've done here as an admin... =D
