Redirect rules & ShortURL deployment - need to make a decision

Multiple Wikimedia communities are waiting[0] for us to deploy the
ShortURL extension[1]. It looks like we want to move forward with
deploying ShortURL; the code was reviewed by Roan and approved. Reedy
says that someone needs to get the Apache rule correct and set-up
(ticket for Apache rewrites is filed[2] but the link structure change
hasn't been finalized), and that someone from ops should make "a few
database tables to create on target wikis". Besides that, he says,
"setup on the various wikis is a simple task and would only take a few
minutes to do".

So we need to decide how to structure the Apache rewrites, an issue that
touches ops, internationalisation, and maintenance concerns. There's
additional discussion in the bug comments, but it seems to have stalled
out. We've discussed URL shorteners a few times before on this
list[3],[4]. Please leave your comments at bug 1450 so we can decide
how to write the rewrite rule.

Since Gerrit makes review possible and the relevant Apache config
(redirects.conf) is on noc and *should* be in git, I've gone ahead and
(after discussing how to proceed with Ops) submitted a configuration to
Gerrit: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/5433

There is plenty of bike-shedding already on the bug. Its time to start
getting the configuration together.

Mark.

I had to give this a -2 since the rewrite rule was broken and we don't
deploy application configs tied to mediawiki via puppet or currently plan
to do so. For that reason, I don't want this stuff dumped ad-hoc in the
puppet repo (the reason for the -2.) The change itself is straight
forward, I just have one follow-up question about scope which I'll ask over
at the ticket.

Update: Daniel's comments at
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=36164 have been
incorporated into the extension in
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/6728/, which is awaiting review.
Hopefully someone can find a bit of time to review it and the
deployment process can be started again! :)
