I'm not a real MediaWiki developer, so it may be a
silly question: How
hard it is to convert a gadget into an extension? If it's not too
hard, wouldn't it be better to redo useful gadgets as extensions?
Unless i miss something very basic, this will make them easier to
maintain, install, update and localize.
It's fairly easy. I guess a howto could be written for this.
Basically, you need to
* put the CSS and JS in one or more files (split where it makes sense)
* write an extension setup file that registers them
* hook into some hook that makes sense for your use case, and call addModule()
