MGChecker added a comment to T203531: Use alternative storage to store Variables data currently stored in Parser.

@cscott The patch in question also makes use of linear parsing, but is using the ParserOutput extension data to do so rather than the parser object itself.
It is not clear whether read-write access to ParserOutput extension data or the properties in the Parser are going away earlier, so the migration path to maintain compatibility as long as possible is not clear.

MGChecker updated subscribers of T203531: Use alternative storage to store Variables data currently stored in Parser.

At the moment, I still aim to get a stance in T282499. If they decline it and parallelize parsing entirely, we can keep Variables more or less running only so long. Otherwise, they should include a dedicated mechanism for our use case.

This has become a bit more pressing with dynamic properties being deprecated with PHP 8.2. While MediaWiki is not compatible with that yet, it is only a matter of time. In any case, we will need to fight around T300979 and T343227 soon I guess.

I'm also interested in updates on this question. I manage a corporate wiki with a few thousand pages and we don't use Lua or Scribunto. I don't understand what this change will mean for me-- does my team have to rewrite everything that uses ParserFunctions? What support is being offered to help wikis that must make this change? If we have to do a ton of work in order to use a current version, we're going to be in the position Stux describes.

MGChecker added a comment to T277883: Drop all low-use and unused features of FlaggedRevs to make it more maintainable.

This is the main mode of FlaggedRevs used in enwiki, and is quite popular there. In dewiki, it is used occasionally as well.

MGChecker closed T208482: Get in touch with Gamepedia about their 1.0.0-hydra version as Resolved.

I think with the code published on GitHub, there is not really a thing left to be done here.

MGChecker added a comment to T290577: Hitting a Loops limit despite $egLoopsCounterLimit being set high enough..

This has been a bug in the 1.0.0-beta version, which is still in (quite stale) development. On current master, the variable should work as expected.

Considering how Phabricator was maintained so far, I think that it might be possible for a small team to maintain it.

I propose we keep this task open for a week or so to let people land tokens of appreciation to Phabricator / Phacility @epriestley (creator of Phabricator and founder of Phacility) and then close it. Surely we would have a project / working group to discuss about the future.
