ArchCom RFC update

Gabriel Wicke-3

I am writing to give you a quick summary of which RFCs we are currently
working on in the ArchCom. Each RFC has the name of its 'shepherd' listed
next to it. A shepherd is responsible for working with the RFC author to
move the RFC forward, publicize it, and represent it in the architecture

Please have a look, and join the conversation on the RFCs that are of
interest to you.


New RFCs:

T129435 RFC: drop support for running without mbstring
<> (Gabriel): New, very focused
RFC by Max, discussion started.

Upcoming IRC sessions:

T124792 Service Locator for MediaWiki core

the Dependency Injection (DI) and Service Locator (SL) patterns.

Under discussion:

T108655 Standardise on how to access/register JavaScript interfaces
