Reading Infrastructure[edit]

  • We're concerned that oojs-ui is what we're supposedly wanting to move UI stuff to, but oojs-ui is apparently unowned and development is blocked on T113681 with no one planning to work on it (and people are being encouraged to shove stuff into mw.widgets to hack around that block).
    • ApiSandbox is now theoretically blocked on Brad finding time to apply said hack, since we've determined oojs-ui isn't getting new functionality any time soon..
