Description DCLXVI 2007-04-24 20:30:10 UTC
After a clean installation of mw 1.10-svn, the following warning appears on
Special:Version page:

Special:Version Warning: simplexml_load_file() expects at most 2 parameters, 3
given in \includes\SpecialVersion.php on line 28

* MediaWiki: 1.10alpha
* PHP: 5.0.4 (apache2handler)
* MySQL: 4.1.12

Comment 1 Antoine "hashar" Musso (WMF) 2007-04-26 17:54:10 UTC
simplexml_load_file accept an optional third operator since 5.1.x .
Since this is a rare occurrence (user running mediawiki from svn
with php 5.0.x), I am marking it as WONTFIX.

To solve the problem, upgrade to a 5.1.x php.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-04-26 18:06:41 UTC
I thought we were currently avoiding 5.1 dependencies in core code.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2007-04-26 18:17:08 UTC
Restored to original version in r21629; unclear why Nick added the 5.1 dependency.
Comment 4 Nick Jenkins 2007-04-27 04:21:43 UTC
The answer is simply that I was not aware that I had added the 5.1 dependency.
My apologies, and thank you for reverting.

I would personally quite like 5.1.0 as the baseline because of entirely separate
reasons (5.0 has some corruption bugs, is unmaintained, has restrictions on the
usefulness of type hinting, etc), but I feel even more strongly that any such
change should be agreed upon, intentional, explicit, announced clearly, and not
affect 1.10 (given the proximity to release).
