Second thoughts. I back down from trying to convert to manifest 2. I see advantages in manifest 2 however conversion and implementation suggest that it is not worth the effort yet.

@Nakohdo I think you are indeed piggy-backing on a similar but unrelated issue. You fix has to be done in SRF but the versions you are using are outdated for quite some time. I suggest trying to give recent versions a shot and see if you are still getting your issue. If yes, please report on GitHub for SRF.

It should take far less than that if you use a strategy similar to binary search. In its simplest form: Disable half of the extensions, check for the issue, if it's there, disable half of that half etc. If the issue goes away, it's in the other half, and go again etc. Should only take 6 or 7 steps at most.

Kghbln added a comment to T225354: VisualEditor broken on REL1_33: "ConfigException: undefined option: 'EnableBlockNoticeStats'".

Just a note. I believe this task is still a blocker for the MW 1.33 release. Without fixing this it does not make any sense to use MediaWiki 1.33. I now have a test wiki without VisualEditor and MobileFrontend. For a test wiki this is ok but as soon as people upgrade to Mw 1.33 the reports will roll in. Lucky us, MobileFrontend is not bundled for whatever reason.

@Legoktm Thanks a lot for your explanation and advice!!! I authored a new version since this is breaking.

@Legoktm You might be able to help here. The docu about merge strategies does not provide a clue. Perhaps this is even the wrong spot to look how to fix this.

@Samwilson Hmm, interesting that it does not work with your setup, have not checked the version of UserMerge though, however when using REL it works until MW 1.32 as this log shows. Have not tested with MW 1.33 yet.

@StevenCrossin Please always also note the versions of PHP, MySQL, MW and UserMerge you are using. Otherwise is is pretty hard to spot the issue and why it occurs.

Thank you for the information that helped resolving the issue. Note that this does not just affect SMW as noted. In the end the change was first noticed there.

Well yeah. However setting up cronjobs to work on the miser mode pages is not complicated.
