Package: mediawiki-extensions-fckeditor
Version: 2.1
Severity: normal
Tags: squeeze upstream

mediawiki-extensions-fckeditor broken by changes in php5.3 language.
any attempted use of the fckeditor results in:
'''Detected bug in an extension! Hook
FCKeditor_MediaWiki::onCustomEditor failed to return a value; should
return true to continue hook processing or false to abort.


#0 /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/Wiki.php(502):
wfRunHooks('CustomEditor', Array)
#1 /usr/share/mediawiki/includes/Wiki.php(63):
MediaWiki->performAction(Object(OutputPage), Object(Article),
Object(Title), Object(User), Object(WebRequest))
#2 /usr/share/mediawiki/index.php(116):
MediaWiki->initialize(Object(Title), Object(Article),
Object(OutputPage), Object(User), Object(WebRequest))
#3 {main}'''

some possibly useful discussion here (and a horrible hack to work-around
it): http://www.mwusers.com/forums/showthread.php?12362-FCKEditor-error
