Reconsider implementing Semantic MediaWiki
Open, LowPublic

Description

As discussed today in #miraheze-sre, it seems that it would be a good idea if we tried to set up SWM. Even though in the past it was said that it would not be possible for us to set it up, that view no longer seems correct and we should try to implement it and make it accessible to wikis that want it.

An interesting first use case suggested by @Southparkfan was to create a CMDB of our infrastructure.

Reception123 created this task.

Review in progress. Likely will take awhile. This extension is huge.

I see a ton of deprecated stuff in use in the extension, I don't know how much it would effect logs especially.

Update: I've reviewed about 50% of the extension now. So far, all looks good. But like I mentioned above, alot of deprecated MediaWiki functions are still in use.

Universal_Omega moved this task from Review Needed to Reviewed Accepted on the Extensions board.
Universal_Omega removed a project: Universal Omega.

As one of my final acts as reviewer and system administrator for the time being, I'm approving this extension for installation as I finished the review yesterday.

So we don't complicate things too much and have a too large workload to work with, I suggest this is attempted after the 1.36 upgrade.

Temporarily moving to low priority as this is waiting on T7117 and will not be looked into until then.
