Platonides added a comment to T215071: Merge Wikipedia subdomains into one, to discourage censorship.

I don't think any certificate could. The SNI is transferred before the certificate is presented by the server. The server can of course be configured not to negotiate any TLS version less than 1.3 However note that in the event that your browser can't support TLS v1.3, you won't be able to view the page at all (regardless of the GFW blocking it or not).

Platonides added a comment to T211414: Request for information about hosting services for WM-ES.

To clarify a little that last comment, WMES uses a commercial dedicated server, on which the different services then run on separate containers. The hardware is owned by a third-party (Hetzner), and hosted on their DC. No third party has access to the data contained therein. Even if some of their employees tried to steal something from there by abusing having physical access to the machine, it would be far from trivial.

Platonides added a comment to T197160: All security-sensitive MediaWiki functionality should require elevated security.

This should be a list of rights that require having been authenticated less than <configurable> minutes ago, which would allow us to change which rights need an "elevated security". We should also allow configuring the suitable providers, so an account could login and edit without 2FA, need a TOTP token for a CheckUser, and creating a sysop would require using the hardware token that is stored in the dungeon safe, watched by lots of guards and crocodiles.

Setting the same cookie many times it should only be stored (and sent to the server) once. If the clients are using a naive approach where they append several values for the same cookie name, it is a client bug.

@Joe: That's not a problem. Actually, not using local storage is actually easier. It will simply be fetching everything. I still think a cache should be available for who want it. In my tests, fetching from the internet makes it ~1.4s slower, but should be no problem on the same dc.

As for the associated storage requirements, they easily go down to 9GB. We should decide if we prefer using 256 files of 37M, or 64K files of ~140K each.

Looking at the University of Maryland page (which is 21 years old!), and the mention of eight character passwords, they talk a limit of 8-character in the passwords, which is clearly because of the old DES-based crypt(3):

Currently, the maximum password length on many Unix systems is eight characters, but if you want to add a few more characters to make it easier to remember, go ahead. Just bear in mind that anything after the eighth character will be ignored.

Is there a reason to for increasing the pwlength for new accounts only to 8 ?

As mentioned on irc, this text corresponds to https://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usuario:Danielalfredo/Taller (however, it parses fine ☹)

Hmm, reviewing that the READMEs are right and updating these little bits would do a nice GCI task.

Not sure about including it in the emails by default, but seems sensible that it _can_ be included, and it would be easy to create a patch that allows that.

Platonides added a comment to T30856: Remove classic edit toolbar from core.

As a user of the 2006 editor,¹ I would like to echo what Legoktm asked more than a year ago on T30856#3629674, regarding removing from core vs removing from wikimedia sites (where I expect many people will be using it, some of them as an informed decision).

Platonides added a comment to T201009: Run deleteLocalPasswords.php in WMF prod (Central Auth wikis only!) after 1.32.0-wmf.16 is everywhere.

I don't see that deleteLocalPasswords checks if there is an account on CentralAuth. Do all users have an account there with the password hash copied ? Or would an ancient user that never got migrated and suddenly decide to return not be able to login after the password deletion?

This is a Wiki Loves Monuments banner Campaign.
Seems it would benefit from having a <div dir=ltr> around it.

I'm not familiar with VCL, but parsing the accept-language header (correctly) is more complex than most headers.

Platonides added a comment to T202759: Ease the bottleneck in wiki account creation at in-person events.

In my experience the main problem with this process is that event organisers neglect to give enough information (e.g., IP address) before the next eligible deployment window.
