Configure currently only allows configuration of extensions in $IP/extensions/.
* does not allow configuration for allowed and enabled extensions in a different path
* allow a different path to be set for all extensions. In case of running from a checkout of mediawiki/trunk/, extensions are at $IP/../extensions for example.
Apparently already implemented in r43904, which I missed. Thank you, Alex!
MediaWiki and MediaWiki extensions assume all extensions will be in the 'extensions' directory, and things will generally fail if you pull them from a non-standard location. Particularly anything with:
* maintenance scripts
Some extensions (e.g. Configure itself) allow to use the MW_INSTALL_PATH env variable in maintenance scripts to set the path to the core, so this is not really an issue.
However CSS and JS might be a problem.
