Importing the list of eligible voters can be done right now. Sunfyre has run the query and I am attaching a clean version of the output.

There seems to be some miscommunication and misunderstanding here that I might be able to clarify.
Sat, Oct 13
Understood. I am going to mark this as declined, accordingly.

The only advantage would be to know if queries are getting stuck in "pending" mode for too long. It used to be an issue a while back but hasn't been for a long time.

Yes, that is why I original asked it to be deleted. I thought you needed for towikifa, if not, then please delete.
Sep 17 2018
Thanks, @Ladsgroup; I did not realize towikifa works off of this project, so let's keep it alive.

I agree with elevating priority here. I am personally busy with RL matters, or else would have spent more time on this. I hope I will become more available in about two weeks; but it should not wait until then.

That was the fastest I have ever been corrected by someone on Phab! Thank you!

I actually meant what Krinkle understood, and was obviously wrong. @Legoktm if PHPUnit ends with a fatal, not only the tearDown() won't be run but the next test wouldn't be run either, right?
I may be completely off track, but I think this happens when a unit test throws a fatal (and therefore, phpunit doesn't get a chance to remove the unittest_* tables) and a subsequent unit test is run for a different patch, which would fail upon phpunit trying to create that same unittest_* table.
Reducing priority, as that patch seems to have passed CI now.

Then lets remove it! Most users on fawiki use ~~~~ and you rarely see the --. Looking at a random sample of discussion pages on enwiki, it seems like most users there also use ~~~~ and seeing the two hyphens is not common.

Do the examples provided in https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/diffusion/ECAU/browse/master/tests/phpunit/ help at all?

Fair, I updated the task in accorance with the recommendation by @IKhitron
Aug 22 2018
@Arlolra thanks for the patch. It still doesn't resolve the other issue I mentioned, but I will create a new task for it.
Should the stars align for CGI2018, I will mentor this task.
@Daimona can I ask you to work on the first user notice about this? And also to update the documentation the MW wiki?
I merged the first two patches. We are now in Phase I. Next step is to identify all filters that use the deprecated variable and ask the wikis to update the filters, right Daimona?
Aug 21 2018
I think all open patches are merged, no?

I did not do it personally; we have a process for it. I will add you to the child task momentarily.
I created a tentative patch, currently in WIP state. Since this proposal will introduce a new condition in the WHERE clause which may not be indexed, I would like someone else to take a look at this bare-bones version and tell me if it is worth pursuing or not.
I think it is a great idea too. We should maintain backward compatibility though, and whenever an old filter is updated, we should replace its references to the new format.
Of note, almost all filters that used "OTRS-member" have been revised to use "otrs-member". So the sooner we re-instate this change the better.
Aug 17 2018
Thanks. Just in case someone undeletes that filter, it is best to keep it in a functional sate.
@Xaosflux can you please fix https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseFilter/635 as well?
@Legoktm please follow-up on the query thing in T202145.
Aug 16 2018
I am merging this patch (I'm to blame for not noticing the duplication).
Aug 15 2018
Okay then. Let me see if there is an appetite for adding this feature to Core (which will involve a new join, so I wouldn't hold my breath). If not, I will reach out to be added as a maintainer.

In that case, I will move this all onto a page on Meta, and make page the RfC.

Should we just turn action items 1-4 into subtasks, to keep the discussion around each of them more organized?
Aug 8 2018
Per https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Bugzilla/Fields#Priority (I originally assigned a priority because I thought I could find and fix the issue, then figured I could not, but forgot to remove priority)
For the record, I do have openssl installed, and it does show up on phpinfo() output as well. So in theory, MW should have gracefully used that and not called mcrypt at all. So yes, I agree that we should formally deprecate it, and make openssl a requirement.
Aug 7 2018
I completely understand.
Aug 6 2018
Do you mean that the judgements should be subject to abuse filters? (E.g. if they contain profanity, it should be possible to block saving that judgement using an abuse filter that matches the profanity and prevents the action?)
Aug 5 2018
I expressed this on meta too, and am copying it here as well:

@Legoktm can you provide some insight as to how CoverMe data is sampled? I look at https://tools.wmflabs.org/coverme/?repo=Extension%3ACheckUser&type=all and I only see 1 call for each of the three functions listed. This is for which project and what time period?
