Are there any fundamental, insurmountable issues with having skins in
in WMF production?
I am not a developer and therefore I cannot speak for them, but from a
product perspective I have no insurmountable issues with either the /skins/
or the /extensions/ solution. It seems that there's pros and cons for each
solution, so as long as it's handled appropriately (and it certainly seems
to me like you're doing that), then you've got my support.
So, I'm proposing an experiment: We can evaluate
this almost painlessly by
converting the current Nostalgia extension-skin to a skin in my proposed
format, deploying it on nostalgia.wikimedia.org
(after doing whatever
are necessary to deployment things first) and seeing what happens. This
not affect the rest of the cluster, and even catastrophic failures would
a very tiny "surface area". If it turns out that this is really not going
work, we can always revert all changes and stick with stuffing skins in
Tim, Brion, Dan: How does this look to you?
Well, you've got my endorsement! How can I help you make this happen?
