Adds documentation to CharInsert (541 bytes, patch)
2006-06-18 17:42 UTC, Edward Z. Yang

Description Edward Z. Yang 2006-06-18 03:45:19 UTC
Investigating what Wikimedia has installed on its servers can be quite
interesting. Occasionally, however, you get an entry like "CharInsert" that
gives no indication what it does or any link to a page that tells you what it does.

In CharInsert's case, no documentation exists, so a link to the Subversion
repository would be recommended. For others, like SpamBlacklist, there is a
corresponding page: [[m:Spam blacklist]].

I will be submitting patches shortly.

A far better solution would be to go and create pages on Meta or
and let us know those exist, so that we can update the extension credits.
Comment 2 Edward Z. Yang 2006-06-18 17:36:28 UTC
Well, patches would be less work for you guys. Plus, quite a few of the
extensions also need descriptions (which is something anyone can produce).

Also, it occurred to me that we might be moving these things to,
right after I created

Created attachment 1983 [details]
Adds documentation to CharInsert
Comment 4 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2006-06-24 09:12:16 UTC
Commited in trunk (r14995).

Thanks for the patch.
Comment 5 Edward Z. Yang 2006-06-25 07:30:06 UTC
But there's other extensions to write patches for! (I'm actually on vacation, so
there won't be any more for a few weeks, but afterwards, I'll get right on it).
Comment 6 Raimond Spekking 2007-12-07 14:14:54 UTC
It seems that all extensions, at least all on Wikimedia servers, have got proper extension credits in the meantime. I will close this bug as FIXED. Feel free to reopen if an extension is wrong/missing.
