If you look at the quarterly
by the Wikimedia Engineering and Product Development department you can see
implementation of the Configuration
a goal for the first half of 2013. Configuration should be easier and
less fragile with the database replacing .php config files. The database
seems particularly interesting for wiki farms. Take a look, share your
opinion, and follow its development.
P.S. You can learn about other interesting projects going on from the goals
As the MediaWiki core team is preparing its quarterly review and
solidifying its plans for the next quarter, they're moving this work
(the configuration database) to the "back burner" for the coming quarter:
You can check that out for some details on what they will be working on,
including API redesign code review, test infrastructure, security issue
response, OAuth, search improvements, improving and deploying several
volunteer-contributed improvements and extensions, and several other areas.
I also found out that, when they do start working on configuration
management, they will start attacking in a piece-meal manner, and it
won't come as a Omnibus Rewrite.
I'm sorry that I raised expectations before checking more thoroughly on
the team's plans.
