OK. I don't know the correct protocol or etiquette to follow here. Do I change this task to request installation of Proton or do I abandon this task and start a new one to request Proton? Put another way, what is the best way to get a better PDF rendering capability?

This is a little bewildering. The HTTP Response is clearly not "No Response." It looks like there is a response and it is more like an "SSL Error".

MikeV closed T4087: Edits cause extraneous additions to references. as Resolved.

FWIW, I have not used the automatic citoid feature. The code for references was originally generated by the pandoc utility in the conversion from a Word document. I did use VisualEditor to edit the content and name of the references. That is when (I believe) the unwanted additional edits were added.

The global link [[mh:nenawiki:authentication]] works on both sites. As you indicated, the search function does not work. We would like the search function to work, if possible. Should the "standard" interwiki link work? I tried [[nenawiki:authentication]] and it does not work. It tries to create a new page, instead.

MikeV added a comment to T3939: Options for importing a user database?.

We have hundreds of users. Please explain your part of the email solution. Without any import mechanism, the only way I imagined we could add them is to send our users an email with the link to the create account page where they would have to register. Then, an administrator would have to manually add them to the NDGUsers group after manually verifying that they are really members. That seems like a lot of unnecessary work.
