Wikimedia-specific help[edit]

This page should not contain information specific to the Wikimedia setup. That information should be moved to the other mediawiki.org page which explains the rationale used for authorisation etc. (written by csteipp some time ago) and perhaps the Meta RfC and policy proposal for "OAuth handover" etc. Nemo 05:58, 20 April 2016 (UTC)

There's also the Meta:OAuth page, which is currently just a redirect to Help:OAuth here. It seems like a reasonable place to have info about OAuth as it pertains to Wikimedia specifically. This page (about the extension) should only have stuff that is applicable to anyone using the extension in any installation. SWilson (WMF) (talk) 00:36, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
In the meanwhile the easiest target is probably OAuth/For Developers, where the Wikimedia-specific information can me moved while we wait for the existing Meta-Wiki draft to become official. As of now, third parties are thoroughly confused. Nemo 14:23, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
