Rangeblock does block the entire /16 IPv4 range of the triggering IP for

Weird. I've tested on the Beta Cluster this, which was not rolled-back as it runs in master, and the option appears when selecting an "infinite" expiry time. I did that too on Production but it didn't worked back then when I reported this. Maybe this can be included again in the next MediaWiki train.

Thanks @Reedy -- I'm going to sleep now so I won't be able to report if the reverts have brought the feature back. If other stewards/oversighters (or you should you have access) can check that it'd be appreciated. I'll ping the stewards' list so at least one of us can stay around and see if everything works as expected.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T177705: REGRESSION - Option to suppress user accounts on blocks (hideuser) disappeared after migrating to OOjs UI.

@Reedy IMHO it is UBN as we're now exposed to not being able to remove abusive usernames when blocking them (if developers disagree, feel free to readjust the priority). OOJS UI conversions are purely a design change that IMHO should not take over when a function that has been working as of now and that operates in the area of project privacy has been broken by the change. That said, I'd hate to request to "ruin" Amir's work, though if there's no option... I'd rather avoid not being able not to suppress accounts for the whole weekend... Your call. Thanks.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T145832: Create Trusted Contributors project?.

I'm okay in general with the proposal. However its purpose is defeated if virtually anyone can join the group IMHO. Which abilities do you plan to assign to this ACL if created? Thanks.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T177434: Translate suggests Apertium translations also from non-source languages the translator may not know.

I don't understand such behaviour. When you mean "there's no en -> fr" avalaible, what do you exactly mean? I'm confused. Thanks.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T145749: Allow users to restrict View Policy when creating Pastes.

Sometimes we need to create private pastes. I don't see much of a fuss in allowing (some?) users to do so. What if they can't be seen by administrators (not true as they can change ownership via CLI should they need to do so afaik; Spaces are different). The "nothing-hidden policy" is not workable in an absolute way. We sometimes need to create private Tasks, Pastes, Conpherence rooms, etc. Thanks.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T176754: Regularly purge expired temporary userrights from DB tables.

@kaldari Tool Labs is mentioned here because I discovered the 'root' of this issue via a toolforge tool. The issue here is that MediaWiki is keeping, with regards to temporary user rights, old and incorrect data as you correctly mention as well as others. I'm certainly sorry if my meaning was not clear, and as @EddieGP mentions, tool mantainers should, in addition to this work, amend their DB queries so their results are more accurate; but this is all about how MediaWiki works, not Toolforge tools. Regards.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T147959: Generic language fallbacks in Mediawiki should not be used for Elasticsearch language analyzers.

I asked and configured Livvi-Karelian wikipedia to use uca-fi as the language is very similar to Finnish and there's no uca-xx-olo. See T147064: Determine category collation for Livvi-Karelian Wikipedia (olo.wikipedia.org).

MarcoAurelio updated subscribers of T177434: Translate suggests Apertium translations also from non-source languages the translator may not know.

Seems like an issue with Apertium or the automatic translating feature. I'd love to see it removed for Spanish as it sometimes "translates" to nonsense.
