Description Filip Maljkovic [Dungodung] 2008-05-25 22:37:05 UTC
Transwiki import sources should be configurable by stewards, rather then by sysadmins. In order to facilitate that, an interface for configuring should be made.

Rationale: this is really not a big deal and sometimes it's a pain to wait for sysadmins to respond to bug requests.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2008-05-25 22:40:29 UTC
With the full deployment of SUL, import sources should become completely irrelevant.  There will be no threat of impersonation, so all wikis could be permitted to import from all others, unless there's some other reason I don't know of to restrict it.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2008-05-28 00:22:59 UTC
Indeed, I would recommend just enabling the ability to pull from any of our other wikis for transwiki import... but we'll need to tweak the UI to make that sensible, I think.

Mockup of a possibly-sane UI for this.
Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2009-05-28 19:10:21 UTC
Moving to MediaWiki from site requests. This is something that needs new MediaWiki software development.
Comment 6 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-05-28 19:36:11 UTC
Setting component Export/Import. Should this be core or an extension?
Comment 7 Brion Vibber 2009-05-28 20:21:07 UTC
May as well be core. Probably should eventually fold into a long-term admin configuration system redo, but this can be done without it in the meantime; an isolated config list of sources would be easy enough to do.
Comment 8 Siebrand Mazeland 2009-05-28 20:41:48 UTC
I suggest this would be a 'disabled by default' special page. MediaWiki has got too many of them already.
Comment 9 xenocidic 2009-08-16 18:42:34 UTC
On, we are looking for the ability to import (well, anything), but also from Nostalgia Wikipedia & meta:
Comment 10 matanya 2012-07-23 07:31:07 UTC
Brion, has this been implemented? What is the status here?
