sql files of extension CreditsSource failing on unit tests due to default on text column
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I assume that the new strict mysql setting in CI is breaking the tests of CreditsSource

Before MariaDB 10.2.1, BLOB and TEXT columns could not be assigned a DEFAULT value. This restriction was lifted in MariaDB 10.2.1.

The restriction affects also all versions of MySQL, although 8.0 allows using an expression as a default (not a literal).

Mediawiki has to support MySQL/MariaDB 5.5, so this wouldn't be accepted on core or any bundled extension, however I think in an optional extension this would be accepted if it is documented. For comparison, the current database on WMF production is MariaDB 10.1, so I am not sure you will have a wide audience. On the good practices side, NULL would be preferred to DEFAULT '', and handle the null values on the application, as that is the right way to handle unknown/invalid values.

I need a way to pass the tests on CI, so a newer version for this extension is needed or a change to the sql file. I have no idea if that is possible or if the empty string is needed and prefered over null

Note that CreditsSource is used on Wikivoyage wikis:

'wmgUseCreditsSource' => [
    'default' => false,
    'wikivoyage' => true,

The database field has been there as is since at least 2012. The comment field might not even be used, or if it is, I have no idea how :-/

@hashar here we have a bug:

root@db1070[enwikivoyage]> show create table revsrc\G
*************************** 1. row ***************************
       Table: revsrc
Create Table: CREATE TABLE `revsrc` (
  `revsrc_revid` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `revsrc_srcworkid` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `revsrc_timestamp` binary(14) NOT NULL,
  `revsrc_user` int(11) NOT NULL,
  `revsrc_user_text` varbinary(255) NOT NULL,
  `revsrc_comment` blob NOT NULL,
  UNIQUE KEY `revsrc_rs_unique` (`revsrc_revid`,`revsrc_srcworkid`),
  KEY `revsrc_revid_index` (`revsrc_revid`),
  KEY `revsrc_timestamp_index` (`revsrc_timestamp`)
