Expected behavior is that there are no reverted and manual revert tags attached to these two edits, because in this case the following edit doesn't revert the previous edit.

If patroller X has a patrolling script that adds tags to some existing edit, will it work?

No. If https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/992763 gets merged, the right will only be granted to bots and sysops.

If AbuseFilter triggered by autoconfirmed adds tags to theirs edit, will it work?

Yes. Extension's actions are not affected by user rights.

Apparently, renaming an audio/video file doesn't automatically rename transcodes. Instead, new transcodes are queued, and only when purging the file description page. File renames should also rename the corresponding transcodes too

Ciencia_Al_Poder claimed T353766: grabText.php - non-English rename causes actor id exception.

Apparently, you can't have a user name "ßéÿßlâÐëRèvêñgë". The first character "LATIN SMALL LETTER SHARP S" is detected by MediaWiki as a lowercase character and the user name converted to "SSéÿßlâÐëRèvêñgë" automatically by MediaWiki classes handling revisions and inserting the actor name.

I'm not sure why the task was repurposed. Create a new one? Apparently, when Safari is unable to display transparency, it chooses black as the background, which is exactly what your repurposed task wants to do. Supporting transparency should work for all browsers except Safari, which would display a black background instead.

Given that the social convention around MediaWiki, as originated on Wikipedia, is to use /doc pages I would generally suggest going along with that. It is not sustainable for the entire ecosystem to support multiple ways to do the same thing. In some cases we need to due to mutually exclusive requirements between important use cases, but I don't see that being the case here. I believe you could transition slowly/gradually, so there's no big barrier there either.

For the original request, I would suggest declining this request.

An additional benefit, in contrast to what WMF does to serve WebP instead of PNG/JPG on the CDN layer, is that files will be served with the correct file extension. Currently on WMF, some thumbnails are served as WebP with .png extension, confusing users when downloading those thumbnails to their devices for later viewing/editing or uploading them somewhere else.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T49177: Confirming a fuzzied translation should be logged.

At mediawiki.org there are lots of anons confirming fuzzied translations in bad faith, every day, and there's no easy way to revert them. I have to manually copy part of the text that was unwrapped from the span tags, and search it in the translation page to manually add the !!FUZZY!! text. This is very time consuming.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T282453: Allow to render WebP thumbnails in addition to PNG/JPG in MediaWiki core.

In any case (no need to nginx or above config) MediaWiki's core could generate a different HTML based on the browsers accept: HTTP request header. Two different HTML document versions in the cache however might be OK for a small wiki but too much for Wikipedia.

Weirdly enough, you can use spaces as the search string and it will replace them correctly.

This happened today again, although it was a single revert and not multiple ones.

Since the page image is only visible at ?action=info this kind of vandalism could go undetected for some time, during which it would be shown to a variety of people inside apps and search.

Ciencia_Al_Poder added a comment to T312152: Clean up video transcode config for speed/bitrate balance.

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.

I note there's no Cache-Control: response header, which means the browser has freedom to cache the images. This looks like a duplicate of T19577: Thumbnail urls should be versioned and sent with Expires headers

@Novem_Linguae Devs will probably appreciate if you can post here the HTTP response headers from the image, which will give more details like which server is serving the stale image.
