ElSeiver added a comment to T340804: `allrevisions=False` in XmlDump returns earliest revision, not latest.

Merged as https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/934432, it must have unlinked the issue here at some point

ElSeiver added a comment to T323078: editor.py can't read "export EDITOR='code -w'" from bash config.

Addressed in Gerrit by using shlex to handle spaces in environment variables.
Looks like this issue dates back to T102465

ElSeiver renamed T323078: editor.py can't read "export EDITOR='code -w'" from bash config from FileNotFoundError because no default text editor fallback in editor.py to editor.py can't read "export EDITOR='code -w'" from bash config.

ElSeiver added a comment to T323078: editor.py can't read "export EDITOR='code -w'" from bash config.

So I'm still having a problem with export EDITOR="code -w", though it's no longer returning FileNotFoundError. Rather, it says ERROR: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'code -w'. When I remove the -w flag, it opens a blank tab in VSCode with a name like tmp******.wiki where the stars appear to be random characters, and proceeds along with the pwb script as if I had saved the file with no changes. I think it's because pywikibot can't handle this variable having a space and/or flag. I accept that VS Code may never work with pywikibot. Would you consider having the option of checking a different envt variable first before EDITOR, so I could do something like export PWB_EDITOR=nano so I don't have to change my default editor for every single application on my machine?

ElSeiver added a comment to T44085: Wikimedia needs a URL shortener (tracking).

I think you'll find a shortener makes externally sharing Wikipedia/Wikimedia links a lot easier! It's super helpful for social media campaigns, conferences or hackathons where you want everyone to go to a page, etc.
There are open source shorteners so you can roll your own: https://opensource.com/article/17/3/url-link-shortener
Plus might be worth seeing if the Semantic Wiki person who owns http://wi.ki/ is amenable to selling at a low price. I bet they are :)
