@Helper As you have noticed the security review process is quite slow. I am not sure what to say, but it will be difficult for us to be able to review the 4 different calendar extensions that you have requested, so would it be possible that you look more into them and see which one you would like?

Extension:Calendar-WikiVoyage is good enough so far and I created all calendar activity based Wikivoyage. One thing I could not understand and did not find help in documentation is how change a weekday from short to long format $a-$A, but it is ok. Nevermind. All other calendar I requested based Java and allow visitors throug user-friendly interface add or edit event. As per this moment we will ignore that option for visitors and all events edits would be done by some administrators. So those another calendars cold be assigned as low priority for now. The lunar calendar is very important thing for providing a dynamic data for everyday visits and could motivate users come more often. The extention I asked to install in this task seemed to be unclear about how to use it. I was looking for some lunar calendar template or extention on Wikipedia, but seems like Wikipedia does not have any tools in this topic as per now. They have a lot of pdf's or generated tables of lunar calendar or refer to third-side websites for such information, which is looks like there is nobody who requested or built such calendar tools yet. I believe the Miraheze community could benefit from locall calendar conversion toll, if it would be built and provided to wikifarm in form of template or extension. So the bottom line, all other calendar requests are not important as lunar calendar / moon phases conversion tool. Thank you in advance. Appreciate your work and Happy =5th= Anniversary to Miraheze ! "5" is magical number. Good luck and together all the way to future.

So then would you perhaps want to close the other requests and only keep this one?

I aggree, the other calendar requests could be priority lowered. I have done it already. However, in interest of wiki users I would not close the requests completely. The other calendars are very ineresting interactive way to control events notification based users initiative, opposite to WikiVoyage calendar would be magaged by wiki administration. I hope You understand my point. The Miraheze is great wikifarm, but a lot of things are missing and it is takes time to make it full of components work out of box. I believe a variety of calendar modules should be as part of out of box package. Not to mention about next ideas to bring in maps , widgets, sniplets, Wikipedia's templates to provide the community of our wiki and Miraheze community an arsenal of competitive tools to jump start an attractive and massively staffed wikies. And again, appreciate your job. I am happy to be here with you.

The code here looks sort of old-ish, but fine from what I can see. However, an error is being thrown about the registration of the parser functions:

( ! ) Fatal error: Uncaught TypeError: Argument 2 passed to Parser::setFunctionHook() must be callable, string given, called in extensions/CalendarConverter/CalendarConverter.hooks.php on line 5

This shouldn't be installed until that's fixed. (It also looks like that parser function handler doesn't exist.)
