MGChecker added a comment to T221080: Attempting to substitute #var_final results in strip markers.

Unstripping using mStripState is done after wikitext is parsed to HTML, but after parser functions and templates are evaluated (first, signatures and substs are parsed to the actual wikitext to evaluate, then the preprocessor inserts the wikitext produced by the templates, than this wikitext is translated to HTML).

MGChecker added a comment to T221080: Attempting to substitute #var_final results in strip markers.

As the documentation in insertFinalizedVars suggested, wikitext is not parsed properly if we use the default strip process. I don't think we can fix this, as even parsing the wikitext ourselves, which might be possible, will probably yield further ugly issues. However, the solution I implemented here works just fine for subst, as this is done before wikitext is parsed.

MGChecker moved T221080: Attempting to substitute #var_final results in strip markers from Backlog to Bugs on the MediaWiki-extensions-Variables board.

Well, this does not really surprise me, as substitution does not really like this extension. (T201857) I guess this won't be easy to fix, but I believe the reason why this is happening is quite simple: While ExtVariables->reqestFinanlizedVar is called without any problems and the strip markes inserted, the InternalParseBeforeSanitize function is not called in the subst parser run, so ExtVariables->reqestFinanlizedVar is never called.

MGChecker added a comment to T220432: Clean up "easter egg" short URLs before extension goes live.

Just my two cents, but wouldn't it make sense to reserve all one-, two-, and three-letter URLs for future use?

Yes, this looks like a good idea - start issuing actual short URLs from 4 characters, and permanently reserve 1-3 letter short URLs for internal use. Then we can decide what we do with them much more freely I think.

MGChecker added a comment to T200324: Create list of extensions whose Gerrit patches have not received reviews by the corresponding +2 Gerrit group (=maintainers) in a certain timeframe.

As I understand the task title, Jayprakash considers extensions where noone in the corresponding Gerrit group (so, excluding people with +2 in mediawiki/*) has +2ed a patch in a year or two. I agree that this could be quite interesting.

It is a pity that extensions like this one tend to end up unmaintained. @Florian has outlined something similar in core in T155155, which has the goal to introduce a special page listing the current wiki configuration, that could maybe be extended to allow configuration changes as well in the future.

MGChecker added a comment to T218472: gerrit.wikimedia.org is down.

I don't think removing these comments is a good idea, as people subscribed to this task recieve the respective email notifications anyway and are left with even more questions than before. If the intention is to deny the claims of @JruwJN, I would consider it the better approach to just say so, if the intention is to keep this hidden for now, it simply is not working. So I don't think these deletions do any good.

Thanks for filing this.

Leaving a talk page message for the authors to watch the relevant projects.

This needs to happen before creating a project tag, and getting consent and agreement from the developer/maintainer that they want to use Wikimedia Phabricator for tracking tasks and especially that there is not already an issue tracker somewhere else. I do not want to create a place in Wikimedia Phabricator where people file tasks while the maintainer/developer of a codebase expects those tasks to be filed somewhere totally else.

MGChecker added a comment to T212720: System users should be in a dedicated user group.

While I read the code in a way that you shouldn't be able to set this permission with the userights permission (because of the way User->getAllGroups works), is this displayed on ListGroupRights correctly? It might be ignored there as well an could look weird with no permissions assigned.
