Is a script or stylesheet assembled by ResourceLoader unambiguously defined by its URI, regardless of the user for whom it is served?

In other words, can on safely cache such resources with a caching proxy?

Hi Alex, this is not an authoritative answer, but AFAIK the answer is yes, and I certainly do so on my wiki (I use Varnish). The RL module are language dependant, but not exactly user-dependant - user information, such as the config variable wgUserName, are injected into the HTML document itself, which should not be cached for logged-in users.

Wikimedia's own configuration files for Varnish can be found here, if you want to take a look: https://github.com/wikimedia/operations-puppet/tree/production/modules/varnish/templates/vcl
