Extensions should probably have some sort of manifest file. What
format should it be in and what information should it contain?
I think Chad (^demon) was the the one focusing on this area. We should ask
him what his plans were.
I had some rough ideas, but they never got fleshed out. In my ideal
world, I was thinking something like an abstract Extension class
that each extension would implement. It would have methods for
returning things $wgExtensionCredits does now, as well as being
able to say "I depend on Foo" extension. Then we'd have some kind
of ExtensionRegistry, so enabling an extension would be something
like ExtensionRegistry::register( new MyExt );
But yeah, I never really got further than that.
