Account registration broken on group0 wikis
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It seems like account registration is broken on test.wikipedia.org. Every account name I try to create returns AntiSpoof's "antispoof-tooshort" message (which is terrible and I'll file a separate ticket about that).

@TTO says mediawiki.org is affected as well. Roan seems to know about this issue.

I know that we had an issue that affected account creation (on all wikis) before. CCing Erik who dealt with this.

TTO renamed this task from Account registration broken on test.wikipedia.org (possibly group0 wikis?) to Account registration broken on group0 wikis.Apr 3 2015, 2:10 AM
TTO raised the priority of this task from High to Unbreak Now!.

One suspicion right now is Unicode normalization funkiness (mentioned by @TTO). Roan says @Legoktm and @brion were working on UtfNormal + composer recently, which could be related.
