FeRDNYC added a comment to T334940: All Graphs broken on Wikimedia wikis (due to security issue T336556).

this editor is of the view that a low overhead and secure graph option that allows an ordinary editor to update changing data by text entry is core functionality moving on that the Wikimedia Foundation could usefully prioritise.

FeRDNYC added a comment to T104002: Add a maintence report sub-set of special pages for the "Module:" namespace.

Note that, despite the task description, the existing set of reports isn't quite so perfectly balanced. There isn't actually an "Unused pages" report. (What would that even mean?) Instead, there are several reports that cover different types of low-use conditions for pages, like Orphaned pages, Dead-end pages, Dormant pages. and Pages not connected to items*.

FeRDNYC added a comment to T151833: maintenance/update.php complains about locked database when $wgReadOnly is set.

After I updated the instructions in that FAQ entry to include a version of the code above, including the check to preserve web-updater write access, I realized: The instructions tell the user to run the web updater in their new installation directory, before making it live. Which AFAICT isn't actually possible.

@aaron : Actually, testing locally I'm getting an error in the PHP logs, with is_defined():

Brilliant, thanks! Is there any issue with splitting it up into two lines (actually, two statements on three lines) like this, for readability?

Apologies for dredging this up, I just wanted to ask one point of clarification on the code @aaron

FeRDNYC added a comment to T213778: Update link colors in Vector 2022 for improved UX (and consistency).

It would be great for us to have some kind of response/plan regarding updating infobox background colors (maybe also needed for tables as well).

FeRDNYC added a comment to T306568: Incorrect fix for MediaWiki.PHPUnit.AssertEquals.

I paraphrase that as you believing that assertNotTrue and assertNotFalse should not be used, and you want the sniff to push people in that direction rather than have the sniff produce a more accurate replacement that would be less likely to need manual attention.

FeRDNYC added a comment to T246901: Support full colour 3D models on Wikimedia projects.

For WP:BEANS reasons I won't go into depth about the potential abuse vectors, but certainly things we touched on were around problematic imagery or content, especially forms that are stenographically "hidden" or textures painted onto the inside of a surface so they're invisible on casual inspection.

While this may be so, how is it an different to stenographically hidden material in 2D-images or video files?
