Make all /r/project/* paths in phabricator accessible without login
Closed, ResolvedPublic


There are redirects implemented to translate paths from our git repositories to diffusion callsigns. That's because we have templates on linking to git repositories, like Template:WikimediaDownload, based on the extension name.

For example, on the Extension:Echo page, there's a link to the repo summary pointing to, which redirects to

The problem here is that, while the repository URL is public, the URL prior to the redirect is not, displaying a login form for people not logged in. Hence, for now the link to was restored:

I think this should be a simple matter of permissions under the /r/project/ path.

I guess this is a general bug, because I can't see a change to fix it at configuration settings. Echo is visible for all users, and Diffusion in general too, so I don't see a chance to fix it, by changing the config here, so we need to report it upstream.

How is the redirect performed from /r/project/ to /diffussion? Is it done by phabricator itself, an extension, or some kind of rewrite rule?

It should be done by phabricator I think, so this is a phabricator bug.

Yes, but not upstream. Patch coming up.
