Check usage and version matrix.

WikiFactory is used primarily to provide an interface to the settings that would ordinarily be changed in LocalSettings.php. Users with the right access permissions (such as staff) can change any variables that have not marked as read-only. Possible uses for WikiFactory include enabling extensions, preventing editing in certain namespaces, adding custom namespaces, allowing uploads of certain filetypes, etc. All configuration changes are logged. WikiFactory can also be used to close, disable, or redirect a wiki. On a wikifarm, a metrics module can be used to display information about certain wikis or to take actions such as mass deleting a group of wikis.
