Strip marker (UNIQ / QINU) issues (tracking)
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Replacing of this tracking task to a proper tag is under discussion at T127350: Convert T28213 Strip marker issues (tracking) to a "Strip-Marker" tag.

MediaWiki parser uses the strip markers (\127UNIQ--tagname-8 hex digits-QINU\127 strings) internally for certain operations while processing the input. They aren't supposed to appear in the output, but sometimes they do. Here the different issues of this kind are tracked.

#2700 seems to get closer to the root of what is happening on these

Tim suggests that we replace .UNIQ.*QINU. with some big error message that says "FIX YOUR MARKUP". Maybe with the new parser this is a moot point?

r100262 for an attempted way to spot these sooner.

[specific dep. issues can have high prio, this tracker bug should be "normal"]

Anybody interested in a #UNIQ project to track and tag related issues better?

Define "better"?

Having the option to watch the project (receiving notifications for all associated tasks) and maintain an own workboard.

Following all reports sounds useless and a workboard redundant.

These are all variants of "MediaWiki's parser is dark and full of terrors". I'm not sure a project makes sense here.

It would be good to update the ticket description a first aid guide for fighting those markers.
