GreenReaper added a comment to T213712: Migrate wikibase-registry to version 1.31 / LTS of wikibase.

The registry now runs 1.32.5 (not .6), but should probably be running 1.35, or even 1.36 (but with the risk of going unsupported again). PHP 7.2.26 may need an upgrade to PHP 7.3 (or possibly 8.0).

GreenReaper added a comment to T21392: Favicon links matching the defaults should not be sent.

The apple-touch-icon no longer appears to show up in the page source (so, this is no longer impacts T29911 and is probably not Mobile-related), but it looks to me like the default "shortcut icon" is still served on a MediaWiki install. As I understand it, this is still unnecessary because that location will be checked automatically. As such, its removal in such cases remains a potential enhancement. I lowered the priority on the grounds that the apple touch icon portion was longer (more bytes) and was resolved.

GreenReaper added a comment to T205014: Data input: Forms for Item Entry.

MediaWiki-extensions-Page_Forms already works with SMW and Cargo. Could it be enhanced to support Wikibase, even if it doesn't support all features right away - rather than reinvent the wheel? Mentions of Cargo might be useful to identify code points to edit. Even if only part of the front end is usable, that might save time and effort; and improvements could aid semantic editors in general.

GreenReaper added a comment to T261102: Wikidata Bridge tag added to edits that have nothing to do with the Bridge.

is it technically possible that someone would use the Bridge feature for other purposes (eg create a new item or add a message on a talk page)?

I don’t see how, no.

GreenReaper added a comment to T264538: Release 1.35 version of wikibase docker image.

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? 🧩

GreenReaper added a comment to T206561: Evaluate Virtuoso as alternative to Blazegraph.

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).

GreenReaper added a comment to T221631: Dedicated servers on WMCS to test WDQS scalability strategy.

Perhaps @Smalyshev could confirm this? As I understand it T206561 is stalled on this issue (and has been for almost a year).

GreenReaper updated subscribers of T155359: wikiba.se should use HTTPS.

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.

GreenReaper added a comment to T155359: wikiba.se should use HTTPS.

Looks to me like it has the same IP address it did last year, which is in "United Domains via IP Exchange GmbH" space.

GreenReaper added a comment to T155359: wikiba.se should use HTTPS.

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. 😼

GreenReaper added a comment to T174354: MagicWordArray::parseMatch() uses each() function deprecated in PHP 7.2.

Surely you're gonna have to migrate soon to the next beta/release versions?

I'm not sure how that's gonna be much different to just using 7.1 and upgrading to 7.2 later...

GreenReaper added a comment to T174354: MagicWordArray::parseMatch() uses each() function deprecated in PHP 7.2.

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. ;-)

GreenReaper added a comment to T174354: MagicWordArray::parseMatch() uses each() function deprecated in PHP 7.2.

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...

GreenReaper added a comment to T69232: Hovercards: Redirect titles should be bolded in the extract.

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.

GreenReaper added a comment to T125283: Users occasionally logged in as different users after SessionManager deployment.

T125283-REL1_23.patch broke MediaWiki 1.23's raw action because it uses $wgUseXVO in the onView() function where it is not yet declared. This may result in a PHP Notice which breaks things served via Raw action (e.g. the JavaScript we store and serve from MediaWiki).
