Differences between Phabricator and Phorge
Updated 6 Days AgoPublic

This page can help to sum up the differences between Phabricator and Phorge to prevent conflicts or duplicate work.

If you need the philosophical differences, see this page instead: Why Migrating from Phabricator to Phorge

Normal users probably are not interested in this page. This page is internally useful since Phorge often introduces changes not developed by Phabricator. But, sometime Phabricator also introduces unique changes, that could be pulled in Phorge. Some times, we do the same thing but with different approaches.


Since 2023, Phorge has many more modifications than Phabricator. This page just shows:

  • commits that are only present in Phabricator (very few)
  • commits that are somehow present in both

So that we can eventually import them in Phorge if we like that.

NOTE: This page does not show features that are Phorge-only, since Phorge-only edits are described in the Change Log.

what's the point of this page? it's very easy to get a detailed difference between the code bases using git; Why create a manually-maintained list as well?

@avivey The problem is, I cannot annotate my git with comments and share them to folks in Wikimedia Foundation. Also, it's not simple to have a 1:1 match between our commits and theirs in secure.

Probably a way to automate that, is to add an additional fields in Diffusion commits like "upstream commit hash". But at the moment a manual wiki page solves some problems
