I think a message should be proposed on Meta, translated into as many languages as we usually can, then posted on all Wiki's. This already happens with a lot of technical features; we often get messages (in English, or if we are fast enough with translations, in Persian), on the Persian Wikipedia's technical village pump. Why not get a similar message in this case?

@Jalexander should we close this, or do you think there is any appetite to have localized elections (i.e. elections *not* run on vote.wikimedia.org but on the local wiki itself)?

The answer to @Tgr is now provided on the patch.
To match T174388
To match parent task

@Blackcat I happen to agree with you. But neither your nor my opinion is not pervasive here. What matters is the Legal's opinion, which also seems to be in agreement with the both of us. There is no need to extend the discussion any further :)
Several other measures are actively taken against this LTA; but this would make things much easier, as stated above. I appreciate your re-review

We have an LTA actively harassing the fawiki community, who could be curbed more easily if this feature was enabled. Elevating the priority for that reason.
Even when a tag is actively being used by another filter, why should it not be available to another filter? Why shouldn't multiple filters be able to assign the same tag?

Adding some of the original contributors to the MediaWiki-extensions-LoginNotify code, as they may have ideas on how to approach this (after all, I presume they had a way to test their code when the committed it).

I started working on it but I found out that the first thing we need is a way to create login records from an arbitrary IP address (because I only have one test VM, and all edits from it will have the same IP i.e. 127.0.0.1

@Ibrahim.ID we have been using SecurePoll (via vote.wikimedia.org) for the Persian Wikipedia (fawiki) major elections for the last two years in the row as well. I think our process is pretty straightforward, and you should follow the same process for Arabic Wikipedia as well.
Dec 22 2017
Setting up polls does not require sysadmin right anymore; all the associated bugs were fixed, and if I recall correctly, for the last fawiki elections @Jalexander was able to do all configurations (including eligible user list, etc) from within the wiki.

Then this part of the current task can be ignored, and I will follow-up there.
@Esanders you merged this patch. Is it because someone else added the feature to CodeSniffer and I am not aware of it? If not, I'll try to work on the patch this weekend.
This is now an Epic project and highly active, see T166807: Epic ⚡️ : Interaction Timeline
Dec 18 2017
Fair. Let's leave it as is.

@Legoktm the patch is merged now, but I think it should have been programmed slightly differently: the isMaintenanceScript should have been cached. If the same maintenance file has many WrongCase issues, then isMaintenanceScript will be run over and over again for that file, which is not efficient.

Okay, so plan of action is:
@hashar: Currently MediaWiki-Codesniffer does not have a rule for this indentation, does it? If so, would you expect me to first submit a patch to that project to introduce the rule? Note that even then, nothing will change with 397216 (as there currently is no exclusion for the rule that doesn't exist anyway). So technically, 397216 should not have "the appropriate rule" (we don't include rules, we exclude them, right?)
Dec 11 2017
Besides the patch I just submitted (for MW core), there are 94 more files that need to be dealt with. I will wait for this one to be merged before working on the files in MW extensions.
Dec 10 2017
I think if any of those exists, the file should be considered a maintenance script.

Thanks. From what I see so far, I do *not* think that the issue here is the same as T112751. I will investigate the issue more.
Dec 3 2017
I learned about this thanks to the note posted on CU-l. Can someone please add me to T112751 so I can start working on a patch?

Think of a complex filter like this:
Nov 24 2017
It does. But it checks an entire piece of code, not just the new additions.
Nov 23 2017
https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/23119 shows the current size of various user groups in fawiki. This request is adding ~800 new members to the 2FA group. Currently, we only have ~40 users with 2FA access at fawiki. It is expected that most of the 800 new users will not use 2FA for now, but still it is fair to assume that the number of people using 2FA at fawiki at least doubles in the short term.
Nov 18 2017
I updated https://fa.wikipedia.org/wiki/ویکیپدیا:اعتبارسنجی_دومرحلهای to include warnings about the case where a user with 2FA would lose their access to the token generating app. I also submitted a patch. Once approve, I will make an announcement on fawiki, reminding the users about which groups have been added and a reference to the cautionary words
Nov 16 2017
@MarcoAurelio I will create a detailed Help page on fawiki first, so that users are aware of the process and the consequences. Then I will submit a patch to add those two groups.
