We agreed that we should require extensions to all be in the same
directory, but that directory should be configurable. By default it
will point to $IP/extensions.
I still do NOT like this idea.
By all means there should be one directory for extensions that are
managed by a web/cli installer and the method of loading extensions from
that one directory should be simple even when we're still using a php
settings file. But when someone is intentionally not using that and
doing complex config then we shouldn't stop them from saying to load an
extension from a specific directory.
A few other options were discussed in the meeting:
wfEnableExtension( 'Math' );
$wgMathSomeOption = 'bar';
Where the function sets the default globals, and then the user
overwrites them. This won't work for when we want to store
configuration in the database since extensions to be loaded are no
longer in an array.
I don't understand where you get this assertion, this
should have no
effect on whether we can or can't have config in the DB.
A wfEnableExtension would do the exact same thing as
$wgEnabledExtensions would do to load an extension, just earlier.
