Void added a comment to T5942: Miraheze Phabricator not remembering login session.

I can confirm, having logged in via both username + password and using the wiki logon that I get logged out after an hour or two consistently for these past few weeks (testing github logon now). Interestingly, this did not occur on my mobile device (where I logged in using password), and phabricator itself is still reporting that the sessions exist.

Something that could/would really help with this process is exposing the RequestWikiQueue to the api so that requests could be fetched by an external process in a programmatic fashion without having to parse raw HTML. With that alone, I'm fairly sure I could build and test a dataset and implement this in a python-based bot/script.

Void added a comment to T5735: Audit user rights blacklist.

We've both blacklisted titleblacklistlog and disabled the functionality of the extension that generates those logs. For future reference, the wgTitleBlacklistLogHits seems to only log titleblacklist hits that prevent account creations, which reveals the IP address that attempted to create the account. This is somewhat of an edge case, but I do not believe we will need those logs for anything, nor do I believe anyone (without an NDA) should be able to access which logs that do exist (which should only be on test2wiki right now).

This is an interesting bug that seems to be a problem with core MediaWiki (but not something all that easy to accomplish without ManageWiki), and probably something we should take efforts to prevent in ManageWiki, probably by requiring all namespace names to be completely unique.

Void added a comment to T5252: Lost bureaucrat.

I believe I've seen this before. There seems to be a small bug in ManageWiki permissions where editing a group, but using different capitalization seems to "rename" the group to the new capitalization, removing the rights from anyone in the old group name. It can be resolved (I think) by editing and saving (without making changes) the ManageWiki/permissions page for the group with the correct capitalization.
