Cavila added a comment to T64718: Make only allowed user can use debug toolbar.

It makes sense to restrict the envisaged 'usedebugtoolbar' permission to sysops or bureaucrats by default. It would be a breaking change so that's why I made the suggestion but I'm fine with either approach.

I'm not sure how much discussion we still need. For a smooth transition, I'd say: if the toolbar is enabled, show it to all users by default (current situation) and offer a config setting to tie its visibility to specific user rights.

Cavila added a comment to T148582: Lockdown blocks extensions relying on API interaction.

Speaking on behalf of a lot more people than just myself, this is certainly one of the most impactful and enduring issues that I've had to encounter since last year, although much has been improved.

Experiencing the same issue following an upgrade to MW 1.28 (on a Windows machine). The version of SMW I'm using is recent, however (2.4.4).

Cavila added a comment to T113210: How should Wikimedia software support non-Wikimedia deployments of its software?.

Shouldn't we wait until VPS hosting or cloud hosting is at least in a comparable price/budget range as shared hosting today? Not to put too fine a point on it, not being able to upgrade could be a personal disaster. I'm running a large and complex site with Semantic MediaWiki (my main reason for sticking with MediaWiki) and forty-odd extensions - Composer is used to install some of these locally before the files are transferred to the remove server. $10 a month is still an awful lot of money to me so the costs of relocating would be forbidding I'm afraid.

I'm using SF 3.0 (SMW 1.9, MW 1.22) and the mapping template still does not work with such input types as "combobox", "tokens" or "text with autocomplete". This may be due to certain issues with "combobox" and "tokens", because in some cases they autocomplete on the wrong category.
