Description Nemo 2012-11-26 21:02:11 UTC
Bug 14901 was closed because we're now in a much better situation and on the right path, but there's more to do:

(Quoting from bug 14901 comment #64)

A proper and complete fix would require the notification system in core and other core features or extensions to communicate in some way, but that will be another bug.

This would have made most sense for 1.21 but it won't fit a .x release.
Comment 2 Andre Klapper 2013-09-26 15:09:24 UTC
As the Target Milestone on this ticket has been set to 1.22.0:

According to "MediaWiki 1.22 is slated for release on November 30th, at the very latest."

If this is still intended to get fixed for 1.22.0, a patch is needed soon.
Comment 3 Andre Klapper 2013-12-07 02:38:04 UTC
[Bumping TM as MediaWiki 1.22.0 tarball was released today.]
Comment 4 Mark A. Hershberger 2014-06-21 19:58:12 UTC
Removing target milestone that was in the past.

If you want this in a specific release, have a good reason AND you are willing to find resources to fix this bug, feel free to change it to something appropriate.
