Krd added a comment to T360764: DiscussionTools does not show a "Reply" button in MW1.41.0 on 32bit.

The list in Manual:32-bit consists of four entries, three of which are relevant for very large sites only, i.e. not relevant for nearly all sites, and one issue similar to this one.

I can confirm that in a 64bit environment the problem does not occur.

The problems happens even with a fresh default 1.41.0 installation on an empty database, so the German language isn't the factor because default is en-gb, and the same for short URLs.

What perhaps should be said: My story runs on a 32 bit Linux, and the MW installer says php uses 32 bit integers, which is not recommended. Any comment on that before a restart the whole testing on a 64 bit system?

Krd added a comment to T360764: DiscussionTools does not show a "Reply" button in MW1.41.0 on 32bit.

Step by step:

  • download MediaWiki 1.41.0 and unpack it in the Documentroot of an empty webserver
  • setup empty MariaDB
  • run the Mediawiki installation, leaving as much as possible on default, except: Wiki name, database password, user name, user passwort, enable Linter, enable Visual Editor, enable DiscussionTools
  • notice that it complains that no default skin is selected, so choose Vector
  • install the LocalSettings.php
  • notice that DiscussionTools is not enabled in the generated LocalSettings.php, so enable it
  • run update.php or not
  • verify described behaviour

Krd added a comment to T359901: VRT wiki fails to create account.

It may happen that more than 6 accounts per 24 hours have to be created,. Does the limit also apply to sysops?
Anyway, at the given day only two accounts were created, and the second creation showed the mentioned problem.

Just as an opinion, as soon as the plan is going to become complete, I may worth involving the VRT community for feedback before the actual changes are made. At best via VRT wiki as maybe not everybody is able to follow here.

Good idea, I didn't even consider that this may be triggered by myself. It appears to be always a few seconds after full and half hours, so it's unlikely one of my scripts, but perhaps one of the GenericAgent tasks.

Another example: I run a deletion request archiver bot on Commons which once in a while gets limited by the spam filter. When working behind this manually, I'm unable to perform these edits even as a sysop, so I spend hours to find the relevant matches and "nowiki" them in pages of dozens of KB size. The cost of such manual work is hardly in good relation to the benefit.

Krd added a comment to T282624: Limit IA granting/revoking to stewards only.

Does only the technical implementation (rights assignment) move to the stewards, or also the decision the rights are to be assigned?
Do local policies remain in place, or are they overridden by a new global policy?

Krd added a comment to T282624: Limit IA granting/revoking to stewards only.

The current requirement is that one has to have 2fa enabled at the time when IA rights are applied, but there is neither a policy (is it?) nor a technical reason not to disable 2fa at any time later. Will stewards review or monitor this in any way?
A more simple approach from the bureaucratic point of view would be to technically check the 2fa status by the software at the time the group rights are to be used, so that IA (or say CU) features can only be used when 2fa is enabled at that time. This of course would require a software change, but it appears to be a much more reasonable and flexible way to me.

Can you please put or link this somewhere on OTRS wiki? I think there are some more Greasemonkey scripts, at lease I have one that is a bit useful.

Krd added a comment to T122220: Enable optional two-factor authentication for OTRS.

I appreciate that we have that feature now and do test it, but I second akosiaris' statement above that we don't have any process yet to recover an account. I guess if anybody locks out themselves at the moment we could be unable to recover the account. Please consider that OTRS admins may not have enough resources for assistance at the moment.
If 2fa forces us to rely on anything not verifyable during account recovery, it perhaps doesn't add much additional security.

As said, I can do that, but I don't think too much detail is required anyway.
We can use bots currently on private wikis with username and good passwords. If we had bot passwords, we could enable 2fa on the bot account and limit the bot password to the fixed IP of the private server the bot runs at. This will in any case highly improve security, with likely not any loss.
If you ask me, this is a nobrainer.

No, I don't want to wait for such feature.
I'd say as long as there is no 2fa requirement on these private wikis, anybody can technically share his password, so using bot passwords does not reduce security per se. But it can increase security, so I like to have it.

Perhaps access to bot passwords could require a user right?

Krd added a comment to T246489: enable bot passwords on otrswiki.

That is of course a valid concern.
I cannot speak for others, but my intention is to lock the bot account by 2fa and use the bot password with strict IP limit, to get additional IP filter security.

I could imagine it was not enabled at private wikis because there are usually no bots running there. As things are growing and automation is generally a good idea, it should be enabled on all private wikis if there are no real reasons against.
