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

This is important when a filter doesn't trigger an edit of spam, and then an admin deletes the spam page before the maintainer of the filter can review why it wasn't triggered. Once deleted you can't test the filter against that edit

I've found a funny bug/feature: curl stores cookies in a file on the current folder, and uses it regardless of the login or api URL. This means, once we've successfully login once, curl stores the session cookies, and you can run the same script without providing username and password and you'll be still logged-in.

  • Do we want to show it even when a reason has been selected from the dropdown?

I feel like if a Reason is selected, then the extra field should be disabled, no? Shouldn't it work like the "Other time" extra field?

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T225347: When downloading from git using HTTPS: HTTP 500 / GnuTLS recv error (-110).

Ok, thanks for the update. I only need a read-only access to the repos, so I'd have to live with the github mirror...

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T225728: Option to "Use secure connection" appears on secure connection..

Ok, after being bugged by this, and digging on the code, found that $requestProtocol is basically getting the info from WebRequest::detectProtocol(), which does this:

I also have this problem. PHP is executed from an nginx behind a load balancer. HTTPS is terminated on the frontend, and the connection between the frontend, load balancer and MediaWiki is plain HTTP. Because of how the logic is done in MediaWiki, there's no way to get rid of the "use secure connection" link despite all pages being served as HTTPS.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T167246: Refactor "user" & "user_text" fields into "actor" reference table.

The bot flag seems like something intrinsic to the actor, not the action, but rc_bot was left on the recentchanges table. Also doesn't appear deprecated. Any plans there?

I'm just downloading a release branch as anonymous (hence https and not ssh), so it shouldn't be a problem with authentication. The only relevant differences may be:

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T200471: LBFactorySimple breaks ExternalStorage, trying to connect to external server with local database name.

Now External Storage works on REL1_33 (tested it), and on REL1_32 if I manually apply the patches. May be worth backporting (they're applied and work well on a production wiki on 1.32)
