Access MediaWiki maintenance scripts without a terminal shell using the MaintenanceShell extension

Some of the most powerful utility scripts which are included with Mediawiki can only be run via the command line, usually through a terminal shell. Unfortunately, many ISPs don’t allow terminal shell access, making life hard on MediaWiki admins.

I’ve written an extension for MediaWiki which tricks these maintenance scripts into thinking they are being run via the command line. A form on a special page provides access from the wiki.
