RhinosF1 created this task.
RhinosF1 moved this task from Backlog to Security Review Needed on the Extensions board.
This comment was removed by Reception123.

Approving security review here. This is already deployed in its entirety.

RhinosF1 raised the priority of this task from Low to Normal.

Claiming to add to branches during rollout.

@RhinosF1 Is there a reason why we can't just add this in 1.37 already?

Yes the extension isn't compatible with 1.37

Oh, I see. In that case if we're keeping this task normal prio I'd add it to the 1.38 branch and create a mw-config one too.

we can do some magic with MW_VERSION to avoid a config branch.

That's okay, as long as this task doesn't just stay open until we actually migrate that's ok.

We can migrate test in about 10 days time. It's really not that far away.

Is it too early to cut a MW 1.38 branch, or does MW 1.38 have to be out first?

The branch was cut on Friday for us. We're cutting it slightly before this time for various reasons on our end. 1.38 is about 8 weeks off release when the branch is cut by upstream.

Agent_Isai moved this task from Notification Pending to Early Notification Issued on the Notice board.

Community notified with *lots* of anticipation for change. It's a minor change which will likely not have much user-facing impact but I thought a notice would be nice for those who use it. I will repost this announcement once the upgrade draws near (say, 2-3 weeks from the upgrade?).

Reception123 changed the task status from Open to Stalled.Mar 17 2022, 06:02

Moving to stalled as this is pending the upgrade and there is no reasons to have a task open for something that will only be done shortly before the upgrade.

Agent_Isai lowered the priority of this task from Normal to Low.Apr 1 2022, 19:32

Reassigning to "Low" priority as it's something to be done once MediaWiki 1.38 is released.

Universal_Omega claimed this task.
Universal_Omega raised the priority of this task from Low to Normal.
Universal_Omega moved this task from Backlog to Short Term on the MediaWiki (SRE) board.

I have installed the extension on 1.38, which is now on test101.
