Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T266678: Actor Migration breaks images in 1.34.x.

Just a note on purgeList.php: It only purges squid/varnish, not parser cache (as noted on the manual page). Use purgePage.php for that.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a project to T247454: 502 Server Hangup Error for "Upload a new version of this file" on Special:Upload on Commons: Wikimedia-production-error.

The error comes from the server. Thus, I don't think the browser's error console would be much helpful here. I guess this kind of error might get logged somewhere on production, hence tagging Wikimedia-production-error

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T56037: ForeignAPIRepo / InstantCommons should fetch multiple-density thumbnails in one request.

I think $wgForeignFileRepos has all the information to determine the thumbnail URL structure. It would need to configure something like a LocalFileRepo but with the remote url. hashLevels would be used to generate the hash levels, and thumbUrl would be used for thumbnails. This should work for InstantCommons. If other repositories have some special handling, they would need to subclass ForeignAPIRepo.

You're right. The api changed somewhere after MediaWiki 1.19. In MediaWiki 1.19 the returned structure is gaifrom, but on current MediaWiki versions it's gaicontinue. However, it would need other changes, since the continue parameters are inside a continue object and not query-continue.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T181987: Thumbnails are broken (False decimal point in srcset when locale is not English).

Today a user on IRC came with a similar problem on 1.34, but this time an exception when saving an edit, where a timestamp was being represented with a comma instead of a dot: T241533

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T241428: translate contents issue on tablet.

Isn't this a bad translation caused by Google Chrome automatic translator? I'm seeing a Google Chrome translation toolbar at the bottom of the images, saying it translated the page from English to French

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T241243: Update {{Extension}} to accept compatibility policy = lts.

Guessing it's more complex than just adding something like: -->|ltsrel=<translate><!--T:46--> lts release branches</translate><!--

T:46 is already used, but in theory, you just need to find the first next free number... Looks like it has circa 190 units

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T203941: Allow watchlist notifications to be delivered as web notification (through Echo).

Email content should probably be reworked, since in its current state there's no hint that you won't get any further notification for that page until you visit the page being logged in, something important to note IMHO

Ciencia_Al_Poder closed T238929: mediawiki Template:Extension cannot access to file config => Project not found in Phabricator as Invalid.

The link pointed to translwikmediadef repository, which doesn't seem to exist (or at least not with that name). I've changed the link to the "translatewiki" repository (and a different file since that one no longer exists) and now the URL resolves properly. I don't know when the repo was renamed from translwikmediadef, however there doesn't seem to be many links to that repo. I think there's no need for a redirect. But this particular issue with the template is fixed

Should this be declined, given that the fields were combined in T161671: Compacting the revision table?

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T236444: Actor migration seems to have broken deleteDefaultMessages.php, and by extension the update process for really old wikis.

Shouldn't it be backported to 1.34 (which is a release candidate now)?

I just successfully moved the file page after I adding text on the page, I think you don't face the issue because, as usual, all files contain text on wikipedia's file pages
