Thank you! It appears to have worked. Much obliged.

@Urbanecm, yes it is about reattaching those two. The 0429 account was the Meta account of the 0428 global account. It was renamed in error and became separated. I renamed it to try to fix it but made it worse. It can be renamed but the user reported being unable to access Meta when it was the same name. (I only added Hoo because of an email conversation in which they asked me to create the task and allocate it to them).

Green_Giant added a comment to T111666: Add an option to hide the rename log in recent changes.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not asking for renaming to be hidden by default, just on a preference basis. On English Wikinews, for example renaming forms 34 of the last 100 actions (starting with the creation of User:Osakafinancial and ending with Blood Red Sandman deleting a page, excluding bots and Wikidata). I don't necessarily need to know about the renaming actions of highly trusted GR's and stewards, especially because it doesn't affect content. It isn't like Wikidata, which most of us can act on if an item has been wrongly changed. I really can't see any user rename being objectionable if it's been screened at Meta but even if it was, the place to ask for action would be Meta rather than locally.

In Accessing instances with ProxyCommand ssh option (recommended), what exactly is "~/.ssh/config" and the "local machine"?

In the Manage Instances box, the only one available is Bastion. When I try to connect to bastion I still receive the same error message.

Yes I've gone through the steps (although they are confusingly laid out). Specifically I've got shell access, logged in at wikitech and gerrit, and uploaded an ssh key to both. What I don't understand is where exactly to find the project. I'm stuck at the point on https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Getting_Started#Access_Project_Instances. It isn't clear where I have to enter:

I've created a new project, 'nonfreewiki' with green_giant as admin. You can add additional users and admins as you see fit.
Existing quotas will allow you to create two instances to host two different wikis. I'd recommend that you set up the wikis using the labs_vagrant classes; best to read this before you start: https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:MediaWiki-Vagrant_in_Labs
When creating the new hosts, make sure that port 80/http is in a security group that's applied to the new hosts. Then you can use the labs web proxy system to provide https access for the outside world.

It would probably be much less work to have someone simply fix your gadget which did this.

Also you need another MediaWiki installation as a client

@Green_Giant So the project should only use example images for demo. It should not host any real non-free files until the site is moved to production.

Comment:

  1. Some extensions are not needed, like GWToolset. others includes all CentralAuth/global* extensions, CheckUser, MassMessage, OAIRepository, WikiHiero, all Wikibase extensions, CentralNotice, NewUserMessage, SecurePoll, etc. In my opinion only these extensions are needed.
  2. To prevent spam you can install OAuthAuthentication and disallow account creation by anybody. So only autoconfirmed user in Commons can register here.

I suspect it would have been a Sister Projects Committee (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Sister_Projects_Committee) but this is not likely to be ready for a while. Beyond that I couldn't guess who to turn to.
