@Hamishcn 請問這個什麼時候可以部署? // When will this be deployed, please?

@Kitabc12345 You'll have to wait for other developers, they will review the patch.

Patch needs to be reviewed, and then deployed.

@Urbanecm Can you please review the patch and deploy it when you think that it would be okay?

@Kizule As you already know, patches in mediawiki-config are reviewed and
deployed in so-called Backport windows, and each developer is supposed to
add an entry to whenever
they can be around and test it.

I can probably do it next week for you.

@Hamish For future config patches, do not hesitate to schedule on the
deployments page, otherwise, nothing can happen until someone notices :-).
Thanks for the patch anyway.

Several pages now have a prefix "BROKEN", because they conflicted with some other page. See and for list of such pages. Also see P13250 for output of the command above.

@Kitabc12345 You'll have to deal with pages above manually, and I'll say they can be simply deleted IMO.
