I was trying to log out one day but the step was slow. It said, "You are being logged out, please wait". Then it said, "Cannot log out now: http". Eventually I was logged out.
Why so long? Does it mean that I must have been using a slow network? If I close my browser while waiting, is that good enough?
In discussion in IRC, a dev noted that:
- the relevant code is at https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/blob/master/resources/src/mediawiki.page.ready.js#L57-L77
- @Ladsgroup wrote the js code there https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/commit/8f033911030d26759c327145403f91ac6b1c5e66
I'm filing a task
- in case it's a security problem
- in case it comes up again
- in case the error message can be improved/clarified
