Kghbln added a comment to T213893: Allow extensions to define additional command line parameters to "update.php".

Correct. So while it is possible to use php7 syntax, this particular file being a first class entrypoint into mediawiki, possibly should not if it can avoid to do so, out of user friendliness in the error reporting.

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.

Yesterday I successfully tested switching to a non-standard elasticsearch port and the configuration example works out fine. So I guess I was up improving the docu. :)

Hey, yeah, sorry for not immediately responding. Actually I wanted to test this already. Will do so soon and create a pull for the docu.

A change in MediaWiki core recently caused things to break. See this SMW issue on GitHub for further information and context.

Sorry, it wasn't my intention to sound dismissive of your concern there.

Indeed it sounds very much like it. :)

@Dinoguy1000 This was not about who did what in the past and who is involved with Wikidata. This was about improving a flawed process here on Phabricator. Since I thought you were part of the team I pinged you too. Anyways I am piggybacking on a different issue which is utterly wrong too. I will create a new task and just hope that this error stops. Edit: I created task T221771 for this.

Kghbln updated subscribers of T214457: Archive EducationProgram.

@MacFan4000 @Dinoguy1000 and @Liuxinyu970226 I am not sure if you are the ones to address this issue: I find it irritating how all the data of archived extensions are cleared from Wikidata. All the data is still valid. I believe you only have to add the statement that it is abandonware as of xxx like it was done here. Think of a person that died. This would be like adding the date of death and clearing all the rest.

Kghbln added a comment to T215391: Graphs are constantly being regenerated, no matter what.

Does anyone think it might be a good idea to get rid of the uploading of GraphViz images as wiki files?
