GlobalRename notes appear publically
Closed, InvalidPublicSecurity

Description

See https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:PrefixIndex?prefix=GlobalRenameQueue&namespace=4

First occurred in August, as far as I can tell[1]

Note sure why, couldn't figure out how to add notes without rejecting or accepting a request when attempting to reproduce

This isn't a security vuln, but intended.

@revi @Urbanecm where exactly do you see the "Create notes..."? I tried to do this at https://deployment.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Special:GlobalRenameQueue/request/36 and there is only a "Notes/reasoning" field, and the log entry.

It is probably configured via Mediawiki namespace page to show that interface message.

Oh, thanks. Sorry for the trouble
