[OWASP-wiki-editors] [Request] Review the currently installed Wiki extensions

Hello Wiki Editors,

Over the weekend, I updated the wiki to the latest LTS version - 1.23.14.
This is part of getting the source to the latest, stable release 1.27.x.
We'll first have to go to 1.25.x, then 1.27.x

I also cleaned up and organized the spaghetti-like LocalSettings.php - all
~380+ lines of mess.

I removed a ton of vestigial and deprecated configuration options.  I also
have some more research on several areas of our configuration that are
unclear or require a re-think.

When moving to 1.25.x from 1.23.x, the method of configuring extensions has
changed.  I'd like to take this time to review our existing MediaWiki
extensions before we do the source upgrades.  The move to 1.25.x and 1.27.x
will require updating all the extensions so this is a great time to review
them.

*I'd greatly appreciate any and all feedback on the the LocalSettings.php -
especially the section at ~line 349:*
#================================================#
#     27 -Extensions                             #
#================================================#

The cleaned up and much more sane LocalSettings.php is at:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/16YsRyBzdPkfjHL89fTUesf5hZfTsFaWgBxS3YLMvbSk/edit?usp=sharing
 *MAKE COMMENTS ON THIS DOC PLEASE*


The original LocalSettings.php, for the morbidly curious, is at:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1ux9HT6yOl37y1YGU_MjqLCsui32H9q-ZrwXtpXTu3DM/edit?usp=sharing

These are copy/paste of the config files - the only editing I've done in
Google Docs is to remove line wrapping where possible. (and a few choice
redactions)

Those links allow comments.  Please comment away or request edit access if
you need/want it.

You have the week to make comments.  I'll take the net of the comments and
make the changes over the weekend during the upgrade to MediaWiki 1.25.x.

For those wondering what Wikipedia uses for extensions, see

THANKS for your help with this.

Cheers!
