Add IP range support to [[Special:Log]]
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Further to T145912, it'd be nice to be able to query for IP ranges at Special:Log, specifically for blocks. Primary use case:

As an administrator, I want to search the block log for all log events targeting IPs in a given IP range, i.e. https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=block&user=&page=User%3A118.165.114.0%2F24&year=&month=-1&tagfilter=&subtype= should find both https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/block&page=User%3A118.165.114.14 , https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log/block&page=User%3A118.165.112.156 and any blocks of subranges.

Such information would help in determining whether rangeblocks are necessary.

I've created T187579 to investigate what I think may work for this, but note the idea is to add IP range support for every logged action and not just blocks. I'm going to hijack this ticket, hope that is OK :)

Just wondered where this is currently sitting. I truly (for the 1000+th time) could do with the ability to search both Special:Log/spamblacklist, Special:DeletedContributions and Special:Abuselog by IP range. Where we have spambot activity, it is next to impossible to identify where the spambots are happening by any reasonable functionality than browser search.

To my knowledge, there is no WMF team working on this at the moment.
