Where is the detailed MCP wiki page now?

Post by mikeprichard »

I see the OpenMW wiki pages are being migrated to git for consolidation/convenience, which makes sense. However, while I see in the closed issue at https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw/-/issues/6021 that my issue #5772 was noted as a "catch-all" MCP issue (though it only lists about a dozen features I considered possibly more suited to Lua scripting whenever that's fully available), I can't find anywhere the much more detailed and complete content from the original MCP wiki page (i.e. there were probably 60 or more MCP bugfixes and features still listed as "not yet started", with hundreds of other already implemented/ignored issues helpfully detailed as well). Could someone therefore please provide the link for the migrated detailed MCP wiki page that has preserved all of this information? Thanks!

It's been talked about elsewhere on the forums. :)

Is this not already on the new wiki page?

Thanks for the quick reply! And I at least can't find this on the new git wiki, but I very well could be missing it.

OK, that's what I was beginning to suspect. The main reason I was asking is to determine where I/others could update the detailed issue-by-issue information as more features/fixes are gradually implemented or rejected, so I guess I'll continue to update the "old" wiki if/as needed until it fully migrates to git. Thanks again.

The idea is to now track features/fixes via issues, instead of in the wiki.

The old wiki has been made read-only, IIRC.

It wasn't made read-only on purpose, it was because the bridge between the it and the forum broke and no one maintains it anymore. So no one can log in any more.

Ah, didn't notice it was read-only - got it. There are probably 20 to 30 "not started" issues per the old wiki not covered by my issue https://gitlab.com/OpenMW/openmw/-/issues/5772 or by the other 11 open issues on git with the "MCP" label, so I guess those will be captured and disposed of as additional git issues as things are migrated.

For me at least, from a thorough documentation perspective, it would be much preferable to keep the wiki format rather than only relying on a more dispersed issue format for all MCP issues to ensure ease of reference by prospective OpenMW users (including modders) who will want to determine which of the popular mod's features are included in OpenMW and which aren't. The MCP git label has not been consistently used, and in any case requires a more manual search of the git (where issue names also frequently don't match the exact feature/fix names in MCP) for a user to cobble together a full picture. But if it's already been definitively decided to do away with the wiki for future MCP tracking purposes altogether, so be it. Thanks again.
