Mediawiki update to 1.19

Thomas Schmidt-8
Hi, our admin guys are preparing an update to our wikis to version 1.19.
It's already running on the staging system at http://enstage.opensuse.org/Main_Page

Could you please check if you see any regressions?
Greetings

Hello,

CC'ing opensuse-web to make sure all interested people notice this.

Thomas, can you please force ;-) Henne to finally merge the -wiki
mailinglist into the -web mailinglist?

That sounds like a good opportunity to get some long outstanding wishes
implemented ;-)

Can you please install the ReplaceText extension? It would be extremely
helpful for some maintenance tasks. Not only for replacing text in
several pages (that's the obvious usage), but also for searching on
wikitext level.

Please also make sure to include the Bento print.css  
    http://static.opensuse.org/themes/bento/css/print.css
(obviously only for @media print) - without it, printing a wiki page
will waste two sheets of paper with a printout of the menus etc.

The print.css probably needs to be included in skins/bento.php, function
setupSkinUserCss with
    $out->addStyle(
    'https://static.opensuse.org/themes/bento/css/print.css', 'print' );
In theory the above should work, but I didn't test it ;-) and therefore
won't commit it to git myself.

It's terribly slow (10 to 20 seconds to load a page), but IIRC that's a
known issue of the staging server. Nevertheless I wonder if it is that
hard to fix - this problem already existed when we tested the update to
1.17...

A _very quick_ look at some of the pages didn't show any regressions,
but I didn't check too much.

Lots of images are missing - they probably simply don't exist on the
staging server. (Which reminds me that we discussed (long time ago) if
we should create a "commons.o.o" and/or allow to use files from en.o.o
from the other wikis.)

Unfortunately the staging server doesn't allow me to login, so I can't
test anything that is related to creating or editing pages.

Besides this, someone who can login (Thomas?) should check if all
patches that are not upstream yet are still in place. I remember:
- a small change in index.php related to Access Manager
- my patch for MultiBoilerplate to allow different templates per
  namespace

BTW: When can we expect the 1.19 code in git?


Regards,

Christian Boltz
