would probably suffice. I am going to look more into it, but what we have
right now (link in the footer and extension information on Special:Version)
should fulfill compliance automatically for third parties.

**However**, I’d like to take this opportunity
and jump a step further.
What would everybody think of switching to the AGPLv3
advantage that this provides, for those who don’t know, is a single
additional restriction: when the software is used over the network, source
code must still be provided. In other words, the requirements all remain
the same (providing a copy of the source code, ensuring all modifications
are also GPLed, etc.). The only difference is that the requirements take
effect over the Internet rather than only when the software is distributed
in object code form.
This would primarily affect third-party MediaWiki sites. Would a link
be sufficient for AGPL compliance?
(In the DFSG threat model of protecting a well-meaning reuser from a
vindictive author.) Or, per the letter of the license, would we be
required to keep a tarball on-site of what we're using?
Also, how does GPLv3 or AGPL affect the license of extensions?
