I thank you all everybody for your nice job, mediawiki is a great platform.
However, as you may know, we are some people to develop , contribute to
some extensions, and every time I migrate my wiki setup to a new
version, that looks like a nightmare !!! (mostly for the last 1.18.1).
I have either to upgrade extensions or dive into php code to make it
running with the new mediawiki release.
But this time, with 1.18.1 I am worried, because I do not have an in
deep knowledge of the mediawiki process.
So, the next time, a release is delivered, please provide with it a
migration guide for extensions !!!!! This will permit every developer to
maintain in a fast and efficient way, most extensions !! And since we
are all very good developers, I am pretty sure some people will be able
to provide a helpful migrating utility (when only function name changes
Today, I am not able to participate or migrate the CKeditor to the
1.18.1 Release .
Reviving this since there's just one blocker (bug 34885) before the 1.19
Stéphane would like a guide that tells developers how to update their
MediaWiki extensions to make them compatible with MediaWiki 1.19. This
seems like a reasonable request. Can anyone take the lead on this? The
release notes + https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.19
would be a
good starting point, and
would be a model to copy.
