[MediaWiki-l] Missing function SpecialRenameuser::getOutput()?

Hi Bill,

thanks for your quick reply. I made sure to match all extension downloads to the
correct version and only got REL1_23-tar-files.

Somehow the extension either misses its own getOutput()-function or it doesn't
"know" how or where exactly to look for the correct external-getOutput()-function...
