Great point--we can serve this using whatever Java web container is most
practical!  Question for wikitech-l: Which would that be?  It looks like
we're already running Jetty for Gerrit, is that the best choice for a new

I'd be happy to help with some of that, maybe we can coordinate the work at
some point.  Forking just for the sake of translation sounds problematic,
though.  Maybe I'm wrong about this being a review requirement--or maybe
the upstream author would be open to switching to English variable names?
Sorry again about the anglocentrism...

I don't think we have the option of using a 3rd-party server, nor relying
on a WMF Labs service for production use.  We want to have the same uptime
and security guarantees as for the wiki itself.  The production
configuration will probably need to look like a dedicated node or cluster
for serving the IDS requests, and we would cache its PNG or SVG responses.
Someone here might be able to correct me, though?

Thanks again for integrating this tool for us!
