Dmehus added a comment to T6411: Connection to restbase (and possibly parsoid) failing on services*.

@Paladox I would like to procedurally reopen this task, and we can possibly mark it as stalled, if that's desired, as clearing one's entire cookies every 24 to 72 hours doesn't seem like a viable long term solution. Plus, we still have the recurring connection refused and connection timed out errors, which didn't occur with the previous VisualEditor-related issue to SameSite. As I think @Void mentioned elsewhere, likely in a Discord channel, I do suspect this is like due to one or two possible issues:

  1. Issue with the way our wiki farm manages the setting of cookies; and/or,
  2. Some sort of internal timeout limit with the Parsoid or RESTbase server.

@Reception123 Excellent, and even the request ID will redirect correctly, which is perhaps how these special page alias redirects work in that they incorporate any parameter specified in the special page for which they are aliasing in the redirect. For your efforts, I have awarded this, for the first time ever, the Mountain of Wealth token, rather than the usual thumbs up, cup of coffee, or haypence. :)

Dmehus added a comment to T6439: Importing all contents of the Harry Potter WIki.

@Losira Copying my reply from Meta: Thanks for your reply. In the "Add action" box, you just need to select "Change project tags," typing "MediaWiki," and then select "Move on workboard" and select "Maintenance script run." I have done this for you this time, though, so not a problem. What the [[system administrators]] ''will'' need is for you to export an XML dump from Fandom. To do this, you need to be a <code>bureaucrat</code> on the wiki, which I assume you are, then go to Special:Statistics, and "request dump." This will generate an XML file for you to upload to the Phabricator ticket. You then need to manually download every image on your wiki, zip them up, and upload the zip file to the Phabricator ticket. Once that's in place, a system administrator will process it for you.

Upstream task per @RhinosF1's find is here. Re-closing this as declined. We'll have to look into what MW version this was fixed in, I think, or if Wikimedia locally deployed a patch/configuration hack to temporarily fix the issue locally. Perhaps we can replicate that, if that's the case?

Dmehus added a comment to T6360: Naleksuh as security reviewer.

@Universal_Omega I could be wrong, but when I saw that @Southparkfan assigned this Phabricator ticket to you, he might have been suggesting for you to pick an extension in the queue for @Naleksuh to review, perhaps, and that, though the final approval decision of @Naleksuh as a security reviewer would rest with @Southparkfan and the Site Reliability Engineering team (who, in practice, essentially defer to Southparkfan with regard to such matters), he values your input and would give it a great deal of weight in the approval decision. On the other hand, I may have read too much into him handing off this Phabricator ticket to you, and be completely wrong, which is totally fine.

Per my comments on Discord, I have no objections to raising the maximum RC length; my only quibble is with changing the default RC length, which, as I understand it, isn't changing under this proposal. This will just allow users to specify, via [[Special:Preferences]] or [[Special:GlobalPreferences]], an RC length period longer than the current default period as established on that wiki.

Dmehus added a comment to T6392: Problem with Previously Manually Patrolled Revisions Now Unpatrolled on TestWiki.

I wonder if this is related to @Reception123 running the rebuildAll.php maintenance script this morning? I did request that to see if it could possibly resolve an unrelated problem with Special:ListGroupRights displaying incorrect information. Reception123 didn't think it likely would resolve that issue, but agreed it possibly couldn't hurt. Nevertheless my reason for saying this is I don't know how rebuildAll.php works, but I'm wondering if the way the script is currently configured, it's set to unpatrol, rather than patrol, revisions? Can we not set the script to mark all Recent Changes as patrolled? It seems to me this could well be the cause of these issues, and would make a lot more sense to configure the script to patrol, rather than mark as unpatrolled, such recent changes

Changing this to stalled, as that status seems appropriate, as ultimately we do want and need to implemented protection levels with Flagged Revisions as that extension was never intended to be used on every page always. It is designed to work with a protection level. If we need to use protection levels instead of restriction levels, that's fine, but we definitely need to do something.

Re-opening per discussion with @Reception123 on Discord. No, they actually did update the URL to "travelguidesworld.miraheze.org," but when CreateWiki created the wiki, it used the former URL and database name of "travelguidemira.miraheze.org" and "travelguidemirawiki". Per my latest comments as a condition of approval, the wiki was to be renamed, hence why the URL was notionally updated in RequestWiki to "travelguidesworld.miraheze.org." But if you'll check his CentralAuth, the URL is still showing as "travelguidemira.miraheze.org" and the database name as "travelguidemirawiki". Thanks.

@Universal_Omega Thanks. Yeah, I realize that you wouldn't necessarily review all Wikimedia wikis' Special:Version pages to see if it's installed, but I do wonder how up-to-date all the pages on MediaWiki.org are kept, especially for smaller extensions. I'll try and do some digging. At any rate, if this isn't used by a Wikimedia wiki, then yeah, I do appreciate you being willing to consider giving this extension a security review, time permitting. Don't feel like you need to complete the security review in a given timeframe. Historically, security reviews can take months, so if this took a few weeks to a month before you got to it, that'd be no big deal.

Oct 2 2020, 18:36 · Universal Omega, Extensions
Dmehus added a comment to T6264: Extension:SimpleTooltip.

@Universal_Omega I'm not sure if we should decline this so quickly. Is this not an extension used by one or more Wikimedia project wikis? The fact that it hasn't had recent commits may not, in and of itself, indicate the extension's maintenance status is necessarily problematic. For example, some simple extensions are so simple, they don't regular maintenance or updates; they just work and are compatible with the core MediaWiki software. Looking through the approved extensions we have on Miraheze, we have had quite a few "beta" and "experimental" extensions approved, so I think this is may be at least worthy of a security review, if I'm being perfectly honest. So I'm bumping this thread, to have a second look be taken, as I just want to make sure we're not rapidly closing tasks in an attempt to triage and manage Phabricator.

@Universal_Omega Noting @Void's comment in [[T3900#76880]], it seems like the decline was solely related to a service or submodule that we were missing, so perhaps we should investigate if we now have this submodule or service? Perhaps this was originally declined prior to Miraheze's upgrade to MediaWiki 1.34, so we may now have the required dependencies.

Dmehus added a comment to T6217: Log entry link for declined wiki requests.

I guess I can't award another token, so I will just say thanks @John. :)

Dmehus added a comment to T6220: Redirecting to custom Main Page.

@Reception123 @Krisrs1128 I just tested this on TestWiki by setting TestWiki:Request permissions to the Mainpage in MediaWiki:Mainpage. Initially, the wiki still loaded Main Page; however, on purge-ing the page cache at both /wiki/ and /wiki/Main Page, I was able to get TestWiki:Request permissions to load as the main page. You can verify this by clicking on the Public Test Wiki logo.

Dmehus added a comment to T6220: Redirecting to custom Main Page.

@Reception123 I think a MediaWiki hard redirect to the Main Page is sub-optimal in this situation. I thought the whole point of MediaWiki:Mainpage was to specify a page title that represented the wiki's main page, no? If that's not working, then we may have a systemic configuration issue, I think.

Dmehus reopened T6217: Log entry link for declined wiki requests as "Open".

@John I'm re-opening this request as this log entry showed up for my declined wiki request. Nothing is specified for variable $6.
