Description Nick Jenkins 2008-05-21 02:24:27 UTC
Currently the math extension ships with MediaWiki core in the math/ directory. (I'm guessing this is because of historical easons?) However, this is unlike every other extension, which goes into extensions/. 

Is there some particularly good reason why math needs to be available on every MediaWiki wiki? If not, could it be moved to extensions/ ?

Of course, I understand that this may be too hard to fix now, but the question might as well be asked.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2008-05-22 18:14:26 UTC
It predates the extension systems, and we haven't got round to it.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2009-06-30 18:35:00 UTC
With the updated preferences system this should be easier to do now...
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2011-04-09 00:40:30 UTC
Mostly done on trunk (1.18) in r85706.

There's a few bits that still need to be moved out: messages, constants, and some legacy code using them in the message files.
Comment 4 Nick Jenkins 2011-04-15 12:14:22 UTC
Nice one! :-) Thank you Brion, it's great to have this consistency. And given there have been some follow-up commits for the few bits, it might be possible to close this bug now (but I'm too out of the loop at the moment to say for sure).
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2011-04-15 17:21:29 UTC
I think we actually still need to push out the creation & updating of the 'math' table from core, unless it snuck in while I wasn't looking. :)

...and math table's broken out in r86741. Resolving FIXED> :D
