Support moar better MediaWiki extensions in translatewiki.net edit
Participants: Siebrand Mazeland
Short description: translatewiki.net easily supports the translation of MediaWiki extensions that are hosted on the standard localisation for extensions or skins in Wikimedia's Gerrit. There are however also a lot of extensions (for VisualEditor, Wikidata and SemanticMediaWiki to name three larger groups), that are hosted and maintained in different paths in Gerrit or on GitHub. Recently, Nikerabbit wrote new repository handlers (repong) that now make it possible to support these repos. That also requires that the user(s) we commit with get the correct rights, etc, etc.
The demo part consists of showing some configuration parts.
