We use centralauth-log-entry-chgstatus since several years now. I'd certainly prefer using old messages but it is what it is. I've tried to search the commit where the new message was introduced, but without success. Maybe others know how to. Closed as invalid.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T165305: Define a process to attribute Flow creator rights to (a group of) users on wikis where Flow is deployed.

The flow-bot right exists on flow.dblist wikis that have the
flow-create-board permission. I don't think there's a need to create a new
group nor assign it globally to anyone. Just rename flow-bot to
flow-creator or assign flow-create-board permissions to administrators on
flow wikis.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T164272: Suggesting addition to tool labs documentation regarding tools that delibrately chmod their tool home dirs o-rx.

I think users should be free to decide what to do with their directories as long as they don't violate labs ToU. The right to fork policy is not automatic but conditional in that the committee has to approve it, and certainly some of us only use of Labs to run a bot and whose only "original" files are those who ain't included or avalaible to fork or our privacy would be compromised. Given that use, it makes perfect sense to have a directory closed notwithstanding your problem in that if you ever run into problems you cannot be helped so much. But that's the owner's choice. In the case a tool is misbehaving or being harmful, any admin can shut it down and look into it, which are really the people we trust to help mantain Tool Labs run smoothly and that can have access already in a need-to-know basis. Thank you.

Thanks @Legoktm. I am not sure if there's a pywikibot option for the template.py script or others that forces the bot to retry when they trigger the readonly error. I didn't knew that maxlag thing you mention. Following mw:Maxlag, I decided that '3' was a nice value given that '5' was the standard one. I can try reduce it from 3 to 2 or 1 if that'd help, and also make the bot wait more time between edits, although I think 15 seconds between each is acceptable. Maybe we should have @jcrespo investigate if there's something that is lagging the eswiki DB so much, and I'd also appreciate if @Xqt or @jaydb, which are very experienced python developers could weight in and see if an option for retrying a job when the readonly error is triggered is already there or could be developed. Regards.

MarcoAurelio changed the status of T164204: Let stewardbot display temporary rightchanges too from "Open" to "Stalled".

StewardBot parses the log using a regex which detects which permissions got
added and removed. If we were to implement that it'd require a rewrite of
that and that's something I do not know how to do as I have no idea of
Python, in which the bot is written. Stalled for now. Being realistic the
only maintence happening on this project has been me and @bd808 when
required. Being myself retired from MediaWiki development, at least
temporary, unless Bryan figures out a way to achieve this, this will not be
resolved soon. IIRC a whole rewrite for the bot was planned but I don't
know the status of that goal.

MarcoAurelio updated subscribers of T163622: Unblock stuck global rename of Nouminouna to Bnhassin.

@Tgr worked on global rename as well IIRC. He might know how to unlock that "failed" local rename. Thanks for your thanks on me porting some docs to Wikitech. Stuck renames started being more frequent and I thought having some docs for all people able to run maintenance scripts would be good. Now, given that fixStuckGlobalRename does not unlock "failed" global renames, we should probably document on that page what to do in those cases as well.

In these days I've received several emails from people asking me not to continue with this request, that I should wait more, etc. I must thank those of you that either in public or privately have contacted me asking me for reasons and offering me help, etc. It was not expected. I am not sure if waiting more time will change my mind but I guess that for now I can stay and test the argument by those saying that waiting more could, maybe, make me see things different; specially because I provide bot services to some communities and halting them abruptly is not going to help them + since my bot runs with a cron I does not really take me a lot of time currently. I think that while not making heavy use of it, I can regain +2 on stewardbots just in case a quick tiny-little-fix is needed and access to the Labs projects is required to restart the bots when they go down. I don't think I'll make use of wikimedia/portals access so that can go (it was not suposed to get that complicated but that project is now full of stuff I have no idea how to work on, it was easier when we managed them via Meta). Similarly, I think that I'll halt for now my resignation of Wikitech permissions just in case I need them (and saw yesterday a couple of a new kind of spambots registering there...).

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T150540: Fallback gl to es.

All galician editors and people who live in Galicia will know spanish as
first or second language. You can't pretend that portuguese enjoys the same
status when it is not spoken in Galicia, nor is it teached at galician
schools, nor it is similar to galician but to some words. Setting the
fallback to pt for gl on first place was a mistake. Galician is only spoken
at Spain and nowhere else, so you can't pretend that someone, ie, of A
Coruña or Lugo or Ferrol knows Portuguese, but they'll 99% surely know
Spanish. Very old people in rural areas who didn't went to school might
only know Galician, but those are very few people thankfully, as going to
school is mandatory in Spain since some decades already. Fallbacks are to
help editors undertand untranslated messages. It is of no help to have the
fallback set to a language that it is not that close nor is it spoken
there. Correcting obvious mistakes don't need discussion IMHO. Thanks.

I do not know in which strange scenario a user will be able to remove a
right that cannot add themselves. If there's any, please share. Thank you.

As I have said elsewhere and TTO mentions, this was intentional as we don't
want users w/o the ability to revoke user groups to circunvent that
restriction setting the expiry to 1 sec. Thanks.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T161459: redirect.py: please add -summary: support.

Obviously to allow customizing the edit summary. I ask because when I'm
running the script on my sysop account with no bot flag I'd like to
suppress the 'bot' mention on the deletion log summaries. Thanks.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T140624: redirect.py: please add deletion template to Meta.

Indeed it now uses db-r1. Somewhat this is an advance since I can now tag for speedy deletion those broken redirects (I've created the template so it points to the actual deletion template); but maybe we should indeed add support so we can further customize the template in meta_family.py. Would it be hard to achive that? I'd appreciate if that could be done. Regards.

Which template will the bot use now? If it's going to be db-r1 it does not
really solve the problem. Maybe is it possible to customize the template
via meta_family.py?

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T159653: Install Extension:Translate in betawikiversity.

Please see previous deployments. You need to create database tables, and index in ElasticSearch (coordinate with them as they are doing upgrades). I suggest to reuse previous configs instead of deviating from them. There is also documentation somewhere how to install Translate. @Reedy would you remember where that is?
