Void added a comment to T4203: Enable Jspoiler on concordance.miraheze.org.

The extension itself looks pretty simple (easy to add), although you may want to consider built in collapsible elements.

Void added a comment to T4198: Wikibase (Client).

I've done a quick fix on one of the modules, as I don't believe adding wikibase alone would fix it. Would need to confirm though.

Void added a comment to T4197: File Storage is running low on storage.

That would likely be icinga.miraheze.org (login as guest/guest), however it's odd, because the servers (lizardfs1 and lizardfs2) both seem to still have 17 GB free. Is this just not allocated to the file system? Thing number two, can we actually do something about this, even if it winds up being a temporary thing?

For the record, this is the code I have in place currently. The last part is commented out because otherwise the site won't start. Seems we have a bit of a chicken/egg problem with all.dblist...

Void added a comment to T4193: Extension:ManageWiki.

/srv/dblist/all.dblist comes from $wgCreateWikiDBDirectory ($wgCreateWikiDBDirectory . '/all.dblist'), and the actual file is created by the CreateWiki/ManageWiki extensions.

Void added a comment to T4193: Extension:ManageWiki.

I've installed CreateWiki/ManageWiki before, and this is the config I needed:

$wgCreateWikiDatabase = "wiki";  // Or any central DB
$wgCreateWikiSubdomain = "local.wmftest.net";  // Not sure about this one
$wgCreateWikiDBDirectory = '/srv/dblist';  // Or any other suitable place for dblists
$wgManageWikiCDBDirectory = '/var/cache/managewiki';  // Or any other location for a cache

You'll also need this to extract the config from ManageWiki:

$wgLocalDatabases = array();
$wmgDatabaseList = file( "/srv/dblist/all.dblist" );
// ManageWiki settings
foreach ( $wmgDatabaseList as $wikiLine ) {
	$wikiDB = explode( '|', $wikiLine, 6 );
	list( $DBname, $siteName, $siteLang, $siteExtensions, $siteSettings ) = array_pad( $wikiDB, 6, '' );
	$wgLocalDatabases[] = $DBname;
	$wgConf->settings['wgSitename'][$DBname] = $siteName;
	$wgConf->settings['wgLanguageCode'][$DBname] = $siteLang;
	$siteExtensionsArray = explode( ",", $siteExtensions );
	foreach ( $wgManageWikiExtensions as $name => $ext ) {
		if ( in_array( $name, $siteExtensionsArray ) ) {
			$wgConf->settings[$ext['var']][$DBname] = true;
		}
	}
	$siteSettingsArray = json_decode( $siteSettings, true );
	if ( is_array( $siteSettingsArray ) || is_object( $siteSettingsArray ) ) {
		foreach ( $siteSettingsArray as $setVar => $setVal ) {
			$wgConf->settings[$setVar][$DBname] = $setVal;

In that case, I'd suggest looking at Moderation. It requires that every edit be approved by an administrator before it goes live. It's not exactly what you're looking for, but unless I'm missing something painfully obvious, there doesn't seem to be an extension (that we support) to approve users before they can edit.

As a followup to this task, we're thinking of modifying modifyGroupPermission.php so that it can remove a permission from all groups that contain it.
