Ahecht added a comment to T294484: <Code Stewardship Review> Thumbor.

The Python 3 upgrade is trickier. Upstream released an alpha version with Python 3 support (Thumbor 7) in February 2020, but has had very little activity since (none in the last 6 months and no releases of any kind in the last 18 months).

Stretch was supposed to be phased out by June 2021 per https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Operating_system_upgrade_policy, and will be EOL in less than 6 months (June 30, 2022) per https://wiki.debian.org/LTS. Is any work being done on this?

Ahecht added a comment to T135348: "webservice" command (with jsub) doesn't work in crontab.

Sorry for adding to a declined task, but I have a js script I want to run periodically via node.js, but I can't just use the "nodejs" command because that runs node.js v8, and I need v10. I have been running it using
webservice --backend=kubernetes node10 shell nodejs ~/www/js/wikiprojects.js. How can I run this via crontab, since running that command as-is gives me the -bash: /usr/bin/webservice: No such file or directory error?

Ahecht added a comment to T213778: Update link colors in Vector for improved UX (and consistency).

As mentioned before, all of the proposed colors fail the WCAG AAA accessibility criteria of a 7:1 contrast ratio for normal text. We shouldn't be sacrificing accessibility in actually being able to read the text to make links stand out more. If you want to make links stand out, there is a standard way that that has been done since the beginning of the internet: underlining them.

Beyond that, I don't think it's something we should use for end-users as for the most part these errors are inconsequential to them (whatever is broken isn't something they want, need, or know about), and not in their realm to understand or know how to do anything about.

That brings up perhaps the most important use case: the talk page of a mainspace article with a slash in it, such as [[Talk:AC/DC]], [[Talk:n/a]], [[Talk:R/K selection theory]], [[Talk:9/11 Commission Report]], [[Talk:S/PDIF]], etc.

Ahecht added a comment to T247432: Preserve the ability to make interwiki links to Toolforge tools under the host based routing scheme.

That seems like it would be a good way to handle this if we were starting from a green field. The system I am proposing in T247432#5961170 is more work for the web browser (adds a redirect), but it has the nice properly of preserving the syntax of existing interwiki links to Toolforge things. I haven't looked, but that would probably be possible with a hook as well. As a Toolforge maintainer I somehow lean more towards solutions that leverage Toolforge than things that need to be deployed in the Wikimedia prod servers though. :)

Currently, the user experience for someone seeing an error message such as the one at https://en.wikipedia.org/sec-warning is quite poor. To find out what they actually have to do (besides "contact IT", which is going to get them nowhere), a user has to scroll past a large list of languages they don't read, find the tiny link to https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/HTTPS/Browser_Recommendations, and then find the tiny section on that page that applies to them.

I would agree that the intended behavior of the "Article" button, when on a talk/history page of a redirect, should be to link to the redirect itself. The number of times an editor wants to go directly from the redirect talk page to the redirect target is small compared to the number of times the editor wants to go to the redirect itself.

We're still cleaning up the mess caused by switching from Tidy to RemexHTML, and on larger wikis such as enwiki tech-savvy editors will still be needed to working on the hundreds of thousands of pages with broken rendering for the forseeable future. Breaking all the old scripts and gadgets "soon" (as specified in the Tech News blurb) would be a disaster. This is only compounded by the roll out of the Interface Administrator group later this month, which means that gadgets and scripts in the mediawiki namespace or in the namespace of inactive users will only be able to be fixed by the very small number of editors granted this permission.

I can't do a performance trace on the machine where I was seeing performance issues due to the way the group policy is set up, but I can say that the performance is much improved.

Ahecht added a comment to T193075: Create the 'Event coordinator' user group on English Wikipedia.

While I agree with @Andrew_Davidson that there is no real harm in perminantly granting confirmed status, the 10-day limit was the main difference between this successful RfC and the previous failed one. From what I understand, even "confirmed" users will get "autoconfirmed" status after 4days/10 edits, so "confirmed" dropping off will be transparent to them.

@Urbanecm the task description says "Administrators should be able to grant and revoke this permission". Line 10967 in InitialiseSettings.php needs to be updated accordingly.

Ahecht added a comment to T182128: Image based math symbols show with white background in dark mode.

The easiest solution which wouldn't have to be hardcoded for certain images would be to have the app's dark mode invert any image whose alt parameter begins with a "\". There should be almost no non-symbol images whose alt text would begin with a backslash.
