Hi I'm John. I'm the Co-Founder of Miraheze, active Operations member and Steward.

If you don't know who to go to about something, then the answer is probably me or I'll know (hint, it's probably me!).

And if it's about any of the following, you're better of coming to me because these are my areas of expertise:

I will admit the installation docs arent the best. After all we have never installed the extensions ourselves but have crafted around a very simple base years ago.

John added a comment to T4177: Six questions about "Status of external links" and Extension:RottenLinks.

HTTP Response 0 in cURL means the request failed, as per the error above. But the actual request itself doesn't return any indication about this - it's further debugging to find the error which is more complex than can reasonably be integrated into the extension without increasing resource usage.

John added a comment to T4177: Six questions about "Status of external links" and Extension:RottenLinks.

The HTTP Code returned by cURL is 0. Which we handle as “no response” because it means “no response was received by the request” to cURL.
