@Bawolff Any chance to get this backported at least to MW 1.39 since this one is no longer an extension with tags? Will be cool if possible.

Kghbln updated subscribers of T287725: Deprecated: Use of BaseTemplate::getAfterPortlet was deprecated in MediaWiki 1.35.

@MacFan4000 According to this the issue was fixed for the skin. However if I look at https://skins.toolforge.org/index.php?useskin=greystuff#header-container I still get Deprecated: Use of BaseTemplate::getAfterPortlet was deprecated in MediaWiki 1.35. [Called from GreyStuffTemplate::getPortlet in /data/project/skins/public_html/skins/GreyStuff/includes/GreyStuffTemplate.php at line 222] in /data/project/skins/public_html/includes/debug/MWDebug.php on line 377. Could it be that the source still needs to be updated to include the fix? Thanks a bunch for looking into this!

There are two ways out of the situation, however both of them basically only avoiding the issue. I think it is still worth keeping the issue open for comments and investigation to the cause since I have the feeling that whatever is happening to "Deadendpages" should not happen.

You should probably just set MustBeLoggedIn in your Contact config...

I'm guessing the config you've used was copied from the README? Which doesn't document MustBeLoggedIn (which we should fix).

Kghbln added a comment to T293749: /w/api.php?action=languagesearch denial of service (CVE-2021-46149).

The patch was made publicly by mistake. Hopefully the impact is limited, though, looking at Logstash I do not see it being actively exploited. The patch will ride this week's train and will included in our next MLEB release this week.

It should also be backported to supported release branches, I think.

I guess T35614 can be closed once the parameter was removed.

Kghbln updated subscribers of T298611: Some widgets are being frequently recompiled.

I think @Yaron_Koren is our best shot here since he created the extension.
