Today's coding project seems to have become a set of interrelated things:
- fix Special:Invite so it can be used on MeW
- partly because I'm considering using that as a forum.
- and partly just because it should be easier for people to get access
- especially if they're on fedi, and not somehow blocked by TootCat
- add feature to Special:Invite to allow requesting an invite link (via fedi DM)
- Is it easy to intercept MediaWiki-generated emails and instead redirect them to other messaging protocols such as XMPP or fedi DM?
- That way even users whose primary email is Gmail or Outlook could get accounts by using fedi DMs for server-generated comms, and I wouldn't have to solve the email-blocking issue quite so urgently.
- This seems like it may do what I need.
