When you say you weren't able to reproduce it, was that just due to not being able to arrange for an edit conflict? Or were the same steps taken without such an error/bug occurring?

AlexMonk-WMF added a comment to T154204: Help communities replace page notices with collapsed templates as they're impossible for VE/NWE or mobile users.

in any case, I believe these are created by user (e.g., MediaWiki:Common.js) rather than MW code, so there's likely not much we can do on this side (VE isn't actually magic, it can't force everything else to become compatible)

AlexMonk-WMF added a comment to T154204: Help communities replace page notices with collapsed templates as they're impossible for VE/NWE or mobile users.

However merely fixing that is probably sub-par. In the normal editor the page notice is part of the page. The tools in the page notice remain visible and easily accessible. In the New Wikitext Editor the page notice is displayed in a popup. [...]

If you want diff pages to redirect to mobile diffs when viewed on mobile devices, that doesn't seem to have much to do with VE. The VE behaviour here is expected. VE has no control over what is shown to readers after the edit is saved.

AlexMonk-WMF added a comment to T153291: VisualEditor fails to load on first-run, throwing JS SecurityError due to ? reading from localStorage in maybeShowWelcomeDialog.

It looks like the behaviour that Chrome & FF exhibit when you disable cookies/localStorage will break this code (though I'm not sure what exactly causes "The operation is insecure" here), so let's assume that's the problem.

So this file has a lot of /usr/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/nova/context.py:181: DeprecationWarning: Using function/method 'oslo_utils.timeutils.strtime()' is deprecated in version '1.6' and will be removed in a future version: use either datetime.datetime.isoformat() or datetime.datetime.strftime() instead self, 'timestamp') else None, spam
Does the same occur on labnet1001?

I think it's close, it just needs the tag field to always include WMF-NDA and I think the only way to do that right now is to lock it.

It's actually the Cite extension (not the Citoid one) detecting a reference, then trying to render it using VE code that seems to have an issue.

There's no regression, we resolved T55441 with a configuration variable that allows VE to load on action=edit in some cases, depending on a bunch of factors such as user preferences.

So, when you have a title+section link in the text box, and the suggestions show the page name that's currently in there, an extra suggestion should be added for the full title+current section? I think anything more than that would be T52881

AlexMonk-WMF added a comment to T152434: Add method to Revision to check if it was a Revert, and whether an edit was Reverted.

Also I'd be careful about trying to invent such a field (to store whether a given revision was a revert). While you could do it for rollbacks, when you press the undo link you can still change the text to whatever you want. Other humans probably usually identify a revision as a revert by looking for the auto-generated (but entirely customisable) revision summary and trusting the user who made it. To find a simple single-revision revert you can compare the text/hash of your revision to the parent of the parent's text/hash, but beyond that things could get complicated.

AlexMonk-WMF added a comment to T152434: Add method to Revision to check if it was a Revert, and whether an edit was Reverted.

IIRC we can detect them in Echo because we hook functions running outside the scope of a revision, but that sort of context is lost as soon as the request has finished being handled. There's no good (quick + trustworthy) way to guess whether a given revision ID was a revert, we don't store the information.
