Oetterer added a comment to T137701: Fix default value for field tag, for existing and new pages..

The problem in earlier versions was, that if a field had a default value and the user deliberately blanked it, on next edit the default would show up in the form again. If an unsuspecting user did not notice this, values would start to creep in again that were unwanted. Back then, I very welcomed this fix. Unfortunately, we have the known problems now instead.

Oetterer added a comment to T133661: automatic gardening category for pages with erroneous cargo query.

I created a faulty cargo query and the page was correctly sorted in that tracking category on preview and on save (I "accessed" a non existant table for the test). I did not - however - change my database structure and waited what would happen to that page. Still I'm assuming that on next cache refresh the above code would place it correctly in the tracking category.

Oetterer added a comment to T135490: Odd behaviour in cargo's lua method 'query'.

Thanks, now I see the problem. Have to think about a proper handling, myself. All I can say for now is that my suggested change would allow you to alleviate that problem by manually adding an alias CONCAT(Vocabulary_Enumerations._pageName)=Vocabulary_Enumerations._pageName would be indexed by Vocabulary_Enumerations._pageName. But that leaves you to manually adding an alias everytime you suspect running into such a problem. :(

Yeah you are right. The page would have to be put into that category without being saved. Thinking back I got the inspiration from the Scribunto Extension, which uses exactly the mechanic you described. Unfortunate but no deal breaker for using Cargo. :) Thank you very much for your time and effort you are putting into this!

Oetterer added a comment to T128340: input fields ignore default setting on page edit.

Hmm. I remember that there was an issue where purposefully blanked input fields would be (wrongfully) populated with the default values on a later edit.
My problem is that I often make heavy use of the "show on select" mechanics and sometimes I have defaults w/o whom users would have to enter quite some text. Also, adding unviable options like "none" to radiobuttons would in some cases have the user set all of them manually to a value accepted by the form (if not, the form refuses to save). I really hope it's not too much of a challange but:

(I ran jobs and purged the pages in between). And as I understand it, with this in my LocalSetting: "$wgMetaNamespace = "Project";" it should be "Project:Seiten", or am I wrong here?
