The revert was done on master, but this extension has been already branched for REL1_39. I think it should be reverted on REL1_39 too (see submitted patch), to avoid landing a feature that's not present on master.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T229092: Investigate migrateActors script failing due to duplicate empty actor_name.

Thanks for your info and pointers!

After falling flat on my face a couple of times by going from 1.31 to 1.35 directly I switched to upgrading 1.31 to 1.32 to 1.33 to 1.34 to 1.35. For this reason, I was asking about when this script is kicking in, i.e. when this patch will be needed initially. From your answer, I get that the patch is, given my upgrade path, already needed for the upgrade from 1.31 to 1.32 and not just for 1.35 onwards.

I do not think we will get backports to unsupported branches of MediaWiki. Actually, I do not even expect this. Thus we will have to do it locally to help overcome MediaWiki's by far darkest hours which were introduced with the schema changes between 1.31 and 1.35. I have to note that even upgrading in steps like 1.31 to 1.32 to 1.33 to 1.34 to 1.35 will to my regret not be clean in all cases.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T14019: ifexist function uses pagelinks table in lieu of better options.

I think option 2 would be ideal, and the table and change to Special:WhatLinksHere UI could be done in core, since other use cases may benefit. See T14019#6638446. That would reduce the complexity to integrate ParserFunctions with it.

That's a problem with your proxy software, which forces you to upgrade to HTTP/1.1.

Ciencia_Al_Poder updated subscribers of T246035: Videojs player for audio opens a dialog to support subtitles, which is unexpected.

Well so far we spent 7 years NOT deploying a new video player, and 9 years not making updates to the player, but yeah let’s wait until perfection magically appears.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T204201: Extend MediaWiki:Gadgets-definition capabilities.

Until all of this gets ever implemented, it may be a good idea to split those gadgets into 2: Move all the gadget contents and dependencies to a new hidden gadget, and leave on the primary gadget only the logic for activation, and a call to mw.loader.load() that loads the hidden gadget. This would reduce the length of JavaScript code that gets loaded on all pages that don't make use of these. The drawback would be it takes more time to load (probably not critical for most gadgets).

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T5593: [Epic] SVG client side rendering.

SVG inside <img> tags have some restrictions in place that make them safe enough to be enabled on WMF wikis. Inline SVG would expose users to privacy problems or malicious scripts, and I foresee that they will never be allowed.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T5593: [Epic] SVG client side rendering.

I'd really appreciate using a single SVG source file instead of about 100 png icons to write a hiero sentence. Out in the wild most hieros face right. I'd really appreciate a possibility for Wikipedia hieroglyphs to do so as well. Client side svg rendering would do that.

And what about some [[File:ATQuellenNoLnk.svg]]? As you might guess I have an ATQuellen.svg file here having a couple of links pointing to Wikipedia pages. How could I have such links in an svg file uploaded to Wikimedia?

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T91683: Allow editors control of the page image.

Having the ability to unselect an image on a per-page basis with normal editing tools seems useful.

Agreed.
For a specific example, at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Abstract_Wikipedia/Updates/2021-10-27 we are not getting the top-most image as the PageImages selection, but instead getting the 2nd image (see action=info). This is creating confusion.

Ciencia_Al_Poder created T294413: Premature access to service container when running update.php.
Oct 27 2021, 8:24 AM · MediaWiki-Maintenance-system
Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T224854: maintenance/cleanupUsersWithNoId.php doesn't do anything.

In any case, I'm not entirely comfortable with forcing --overwrite-with "Unknown user" as it risks breaking attribution or creating new problems. So far, all of the problem entries look to be spambots or maintenance scripts (which would make sense, as they're the ones most likely to be missing a users table entry or be showing a name with user_id==0) but it'd be better just to auto-create the user (even if it's a dummy user table entry for some random bot or script) rather than risk doing something which could break attribution for imported wikitext which belongs to a real, human user somewhere.
