HappyDog added a comment to T161066: Merge pagelinks, templatelinks and imagelinks tables.
  1. Simpler, cleaner DB schema.

The current tables are quite simple and straight-forward. I do not see a complexity argument here.

HappyDog added a comment to T191231: RFC: Abstract schemas and schema changes.

That may be true of a general abstraction layer, but we're talking about a specific abstraction layer for MediaWiki. Therefore, by definition, it is the choice of the application.

HappyDog added a comment to T191231: RFC: Abstract schemas and schema changes.

A tiny example of what I mean is https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T203850 - had we had an abstraction to handle JSON values in IDatabase, we wouldn't need fixes like https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/TemplateData/+/521193 - JSON could end up as JSONB in Postgres and a BLOB in MySQL. Sometimes the abstractions would need to go much higher than this, providing a DB-specific implementation of it.
Otherwise we will end up one day with everything being varbinary or blob.

HappyDog added a comment to T113556: Make it easier to update the query a Phabricator Dashboard "Query" Panel uses.

Maybe I'm confusing things - when I use 'add existing panel' then all the old versions of the panel are still listed, currently. But I don't know how that maps to the suggested workflow - I don't really understand the difference between a query and a query panel.

Wikimedia CI as a matter of principle (backed up by the terms of use) isn't going to support any non-free software regardless of whether it's installed locally or connecting over the network.

Not supporting CI for any non-free software, but having support for that non-free software in core, seems contradictory. We should have both, or neither.

It's not as big of a a barrier to contribution as you think. Generally, when I want to commit something on a project hosted by WMF, I push a commit to somewhere else like Github, and then ask someone else who understands Gerrit to merge it. Usually, this is the extension developer, and from there they can either do git remote add or download a patch file.

I'm not sure they are duplicates.

If we decide to drop 5.3 there will be a requirement to finish the internal WMF migration before actually adopting this as policy (updating docs, allowing > 5.3 code into the codebase, etc.), otherwise things will break.

I agree with QGil and Ricordisamoa - skin per page is completely contrary to where consensus seems to be going. You might just about get sufficient support for a separate skin for the namespace as a whole (though there is quite a lot of opposition, too), but I doubt skin-per-page is going to be approved by the community, based on comments made so far (assuming, of course, that the MW community is going to be listened to).
