Media Wiki geoiplookup

Hi,

not really a bug of some sorts, more a question about Media Wiki geoiplookup.

Is it actually required for Media Wiki to work? This is source excerpt from https://www.whonix.org/wiki/Main_Page

Thanks!

This is a tool that ships with stock Mediawiki, and is not core to the functionality of serving wiki pages. Since Apache sees everyone as 127.0.0.1, this is pretty useless. It’s used as part of the Translation extensions so it can figure out what language it should serve you. I have disabled the function, and should be one less call in your network trace.

Thanks for the heads up!

You’re welcome!

Thank you for explaining its actual purpose to me. Also, disabling the function is much appreciated.
