AmandaCath triaged T5968: Page previews and Reference Previews are completely broken as Normal priority.

The Popups extension is still maintained as it is in active use on Wikimedia Foundation sites (including the English Wikipedia, the largest WMF site). The extension being unmaintained is not the issue. This seems to be a bug with the extension. (I feel like a similar bug regarding malfunctions page previews has been reported before recently too).

I don't see massively why we should split this from CU tbh so I'd say the best would be to hold an RfC on it to determine if people are happy with allowing local CU/OS.

AmandaCath added a comment to T5966: Extension:Page_Forms/Input_types/Datepicker.

I'm not entirely sure, as I've never tried to use or work with Page Forms. However, by the looks of it (MW documentation), it would seem that the "input types" are included by default with the extension itself and can be used via one of the special pages (most likely Special:CreateForm). Someone more familiar with the extension should double check me on that, but if I'm right, this shouldn't need a separate security review and should already work assuming that Page Forms is enabled in Special:ManageWiki/extensions.

These rights are fundamentally equivalent to CheckUser permissions. You would definitely need to sign the NDA if granted access to these permissions. Given that CheckUser and Oversight permissions are not given out to non-stewards, I don't see why an exception would be made here, unless there is some unusual/extenuating reason for this. If it is the case that the rights will be granted to anyone who has signed the NDA (which I doubt is the case), that is not reflected in the relevant policies/documentation.

@Lakelimbo any CSS changes you can make yourself (assuming you are a sysop/interface admin) by editing MediaWiki:Common.css on the wiki. In terms of the status of the skin review, you are correct that the review process is very slow. Unfortunately, we currently only have two people qualified to do extension reviews (@Southparkfan and @Samwilson), and both of them are very busy. As such, extension/skin reviews do tend to take a long time.

AmandaCath closed T5902: Phabricator username change as Declined.

Unfortunately, Phabricator usernames cannot be changed once they have been used. Unlike wiki accounts, Phabricator is not able to simply rename an account across the platform, and so renaming an account that has been used (especially one that has been used multiple times) would break things and leave missing subscribers/task authors all over the place. There may be other technical reasons as well, but this is the one I am most familiar with.

@KQP If the original wiki is fairly small (i.e. not a lot of content or other non-content pages) you can probably perform the move yourself by going to Special:Export on the original wiki, entering Special:AllPages in the field for what to export, and then import the file that will be generated to the new wiki (once created) using Special:Import. However, if the original wiki is large (or even medium-sized), this may need to be done via script by a sysadmin.
