Florian added a comment to T172165: Bump PHP requirement to 5.6 (or 7.x?) in 1.31.

I think we should bump to php 5.6 now that mediawiki 1.30 is branched then in a year bump it again to php 7.0+. It will give some web hostess some time to make php 7 available.

Florian added a comment to T155155: Implement a way to view (extension) configuration options and its value on-wiki.

To be honest: My vision is, that there's an on-wiki way to configure MediaWiki ("configure" -> change configuration options), like a special page providing that functionality (where extension and core settings can be viewed and changed by recognized groups (read: groups with a special permission).

Florian claimed T17484: Redirect to Special:UserLogin when logging is in required to proceed, instead of showing an error message.

I must agree with @matmarex: The code hasn't change since 3801a3cd288f01694e9953bd5fdc070e561078f7, as far as I can see, so this is unlikely to have worked before (in a recent version of MediaWiki). However, I think this is a valid request, and it's reasonable to minimize the needed amount of work/clicks for the user to get what he/she wants. And if we show the "You need to log in to view this page" is visible as a warning on the login page, there shouldn't be a big problem.

Florian edited projects for T174861: CAPTCHA ineffective, consider using reCAPTCHA, added: Wikimedia-Site-requests; removed ConfirmEdit (CAPTCHA extension).

I assume, that you ask, that Wikimedia wikis should use reCaptcha, right? I remove the ConfirmEdit tag, as ConfirmEdit already supports the reCaptcha service, and it just has to be included in the configuration (instead of using another CAPTCHA module), so there's nothing to do in the ConfirmEdit extension :)

@Legoktm: I'm pretty sure, that I already was able to add and remove members from groups where I'm a member of, and it was not something special like pywikibot or something. From the description of the single user group plugin (I haven't found a single group plugin) it doesn't sound that this plugin provides what is asked in this task.

As MW 1.27 is a LTS release (I assume you're using 1.27), I cherry-picked the change to the REL1_27 branch, however, it's up to Release-Engineering-Team if this is something which will be in the release of the LTS version or not :)

Florian edited projects for T152157: MediaWiki should log login history, added: MediaWiki-extension-requests; removed MediaWiki-Authentication-and-authorization.

I remove the MediaWiki-Authentication-and-authorization tag, as this is already possible with the AuthManager framework. You simply need to subscribe to the login audit hooks (https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Hooks/AuthManagerLoginAuthenticateAudit or https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Hooks/LoginAuthenticateAudit for pre 1.27.0) and do whatever you want to do there (e.g. log the failed/succeeded login attempt into something or somewhere). This, however, should be an extension and not part of MediaWiki core I think. If you want to implement that, you can probably take a look at the LoginNotify extension: https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-LoginNotify

Florian added a comment to T153691: Strengthen two factor authentication by making it concurrent instead of sequential during the authentication process.

I agree with what @Tgr said and want to also note: What happens, if OATHAuth is not the only Secondary provider, which requires, for some users, more input data? In the worst case, you get multiple input boxes on the login form, which are only meant for a specific, different, subset of the users using the wiki, depending on if a specific security feature is enabled for an account or not.

Ah, haven't seen that as I was writing my comment :]

Hi @Recetion123: Yeah, I've to say, that I forget the comments from @Krinkle (sorry for that, again! :(). I've abandoned my first idea (not completely, but no changes are required in the extensions anymore), and updated the change to MediaWiki core (just for information for you here, so that you're not confused by the abandoned messages here :]).

Florian claimed T171352: recheck is ignored if there are also inline comments.

Aha, interesting, I haven't thought about that so far :)

Some more +1 would be good, however, the other contributions seems to speak for themselfs: +1! :)

I'm pretty sure that we (usually) do not delete any git repository, right @Luke081515?

Florian added a comment to T168693: Random can give you a page that is not in the language you chose.

Why should Special:Random return random pages just from a specific category (e.g. in a specific languag)? That could mean, that in some cases, Special:Random is not random anymore, because pages are selected by specific user-properties :/

Florian added a comment to T168769: First tab for Special:Prefixindex links to wrong target.

Ok, from what I can see:
Special:PrefixIndex/Pagetitle
The "Special Page" tab correctly links to the Special page (including the name of the page being investigated). Or do I misunderstand you here? What is your expected behaviour?

Florian moved T169192: Limit of summary length on Special:Move should be 255 bytes, not 200 from To triage to Move/Merge on the MediaWiki-Special-pages board.

Florian added a comment to T169192: Limit of summary length on Special:Move should be 255 bytes, not 200.

The limit is enforced. That means, that the comment of the revision can not exceed 255 bytes (that is also the limit for the field in the database, iirc). However, there's some auto-generated stuff when you move a page, too (something like "Username moved page Title to NewTitle:" which also counts within the 255 bytes limit). My guess is, that the 200 characters limit is choosed to have some free space for the auto-generated message. However, this means, that, at least that's what I read from the code, if I haven't missed something, that you can still run into the problem, that the reason message is cut off, if the generated text combined with the user-defined reason is longer than 255 bytes.
