(change visibility) 18:08, 22 June 2017 MarcoAurelio (talk | contribs | block) changed status for global account "User:SJ81 bis@global": set locked; unset (none) (as per user request in phab:T167982 due to security concerns)

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T168596: Update metawiki description of Cloud Services.

@bd808 It currently reads on the Main Page: Wikimedia Cloud Services. Hosting environment for community managed software projects, tools, and data analysis. If there's another wording you'd like to use, please let me know. Regards.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T168596: Update metawiki description of Cloud Services.

If it is modifying the main page or one of its protected pages I can do it or we can grant you temporary adminship to do it yourself, or if you have a staff account with the appropriate rights I think it'd not be an abuse to do it from that account either (but you should check with your manager that).

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T167982: Reset credentials on Wikimedia SUL User:SJ81 bis.

@jrbs There's a script in MediaWiki core that allows resetting username and password for an account. If the problem is that you cannot be convinced by the evidence of the edit linked here that this account belongs to the requestor then I have no objections but if it is for technical restrictions then please have a look at resetUserEmail.php and changePassword.php.
Regards.

MarcoAurelio added a comment to T168438: Implement mechanisms to prohibit blatant attack usernames.

Make it a special page where only admins and stewards can add usernames and see it. Currently we do that via m:Title blacklist which lists the regex publicly and therefore it is very easy to circunvent. I also would like to add that we need to convert MediaWiki:Email-blacklist in a special page only visible for admins/stewards as email addresses or domains are private information covered by the WMF privacy policy and also, due to WP:BEANS, if we expose which domains or email addresses are banned from account creation is shooting ourselves in the foot. Thanks.

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 @jayvdb, 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.

Please advice if usermerge or local usurpation is desired here.
