Original developer of the MediaWikiAuth AuthPlugin extension

I'm curious about this, too. MediaWiki 1.35.0 was released almost a month ago now. Is there anything technically blocking Wikibase 1.35 from being built? I see T192006 and T192792 on the Wikibase-Containers workboard; perhaps the goal is to do them first? 🧩

Probably not an issue for Wikimedia, but perhaps for embedded usage: as of Virtuoso 7, only 64-bit platforms are supported (enforced by configure, maybe to avoid spurious segmentation fault bugs).

Right, it was the intention to move to WMF hosting. But it seems (as @WMDE-leszek recognised in the other thread), that it will *not* be hosted by WMF, because WMDE won't transfer the domain. I'm presuming this decision comes from their executive director because he was the one to register it.

I ran into this trying to link to https://wikiba.se when explaining Wikibase to someone on Twitter (in the context of use on WikiFur, tracking conventions and charity donations). T99531#5181555 suggests that WMDE isn't going to hand over the domain. So… does WMDE intend to set up Let's Encrypt on their own? It seems the appropriate resolution - WMF has said WMDE can't have their cake and eat it, and setting up Let's Encrypt should not be all that complicated. As it is, web browsers are now showing the site as "not secure", which is not great for a database product. 😼

Mostly because PHP 7.2 is more efficient, and I don't want to do another PHP version migration in a few months!
I have several days to do it, which is why I'm reporting it at all and didn't just put an @ on for now. ;-)
I've not used that feature before. I tried running it via the 'tap' method.
Many ParserIntegrationTest tests do not appear to pass with the above change, while they do with the original. So it's possibly not a great patch...

Here's another example - mouse over "Camp Feral!" in the second sentence. Or you can create a link to [[Camp Feral!]] on any article in a preview, then mouseover the link. "Feral" is bolded but not the "Camp" before it, even though it is bold in the article.
