Requests for comment/Distribution and deployment
|Distribution and deployment|
|Author(s)||Jeroen De Dauw|
|Document status||in draft|
This page serves as an overview for the effort to create a deployment system for MediaWiki. The ideas are being implemented in the Distribution and Deployment extensions.
The Distribution extension will initially provide extension and core deployment metadata, and later on also create deployment packages. The Deployment extension enables installation and updating of extensions and MediaWiki itself. It obtains deployment packages by using the API provided by the Distribution extension, parses these and applies them. For this it provides several special pages.
