Comment 1 Krinkle 2014-09-04 14:32:21 UTC
I don't want to step on any toes but can I genuinely recommend against this for the time being? If at all possible I would like to not configure this on a per-wiki basis.

There's lots of cross-wiki gadgets, people using global.js (not just people who are active in multiple languages who can be told to adapt their scripts, but also stewards, global sysops, CVN/SWMT patrollers etc.) who's scripts will break.

As a MediaWiki developer I also have to tell you that we have not yet begun the open migration phase for legacy globals. We haven't "told" anyone yet to migrate, so it's not fair to break things now without giving people fair time to update their scripts.

And again, I highly recommend, for technical reasons and user's convenience and productivity, that we do *not* configure this kind of settings on a per-wiki basis.

Who is supposed to CONFIRM a site request if not the community itself?

I've reviewed the two following URLs:



I'm not comfortable to consider this is a community at large request with only 5 people giving an opinion.
