@DerFussi: Heja! :) As you assigned this task to yourself, do you plan to fix this task? If not, feel free to reset (Add Action...Assign / Claim in the dropdown).

Change 366838 had a related patch set uploaded (by Urbanecm; owner: Urbanecm):
[operations/mediawiki-config@master] Activate DynamicPageList on dewikivoyage

Anyway, I've uploaded a patch for it ;).

@Aklapper : No i don't want to put my hand on it. Thanks for fixing it.

As I can't be here at the next deployment window I've asked the others in Z398 to schedule it. Watch the task if anything happens!

I don't think we can deploy this to more wikis taking into count what it is happening at T31596 and T124841. Pinging @Bawolff for advice.

Thank you for the links, I've abandoned the patch.

As long as we are talking about DynamicPageList_(Wikimedia) its a performance issue not security, so its @greg 's call. It might be ok on small wikis. Im not really sure where we are drawing the line.

Thanks @Bawolff. We'll wait for @greg here then. It'd be good indeed to draw a line because there are some requests stalled to activate this and it'd be good to move forward on them. Could any of you raise this in the ops mailing list? I don't have access to it. Thanks!

(edit: in case that it is decided that this extension should not be installed on more wikis until the performance issues are solved we could list that at m:Limits to configuration changes for general knowledge, or in case it is decided that small wikis [definition of small] only, we can add it there as well)

Sorry for the delay.

It looks like the performance review is done, but not the actual follow-ups to correct what the review found, correct? See:

Before we allow this to go out on any more wikis we should have those issues addressed (@Bawolff outlined two options: a non-total-rewrite and a rewrite).

Based on this would be in the (large) backlog of the "Contributors -> Editing team". I'll add them to the relevant tasks.

Any news about this case? We still need the extension on WV/de

T124841 (linked above under Related Objects) is open and needs to get fixed first by someone who volunteers to work on that code...
