IMHO at least the license issue and the logo image would have to be fixed before.

Platonides added a comment to T208645: Prohibit empty blocks.

I don't think it should report any block if no pages are selected. It should report an error instead. Magically making "blocking from no pages" mean that they can't do an undefined "something else" upload, move, use certain Special page...?) is a bad idea. If we want to disable upload, the revoked rights should be explicitly stated somwhere.

Platonides added a comment to T205931: Specialist support for 2018/19 password strengthening project.

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.

Well, probably they should be their own queues, even if it will then be handled per-language by the same existing groups. But before that it would be interesting to know the volume of such emails, and the types. Keep in mind that for certain emails (eg. a password recovery), maybe we don't want to blindly add such replies (probably containing the temporary password) into OTRS without a clear usecase.

Maybe you could try not ending the message with "-- Legoktm" ? Just prepending a space would do. Lines starting with a dash would be mangled in traditional PGP. It shouldn't really matter with PGP/MIME, but that's the only slightly odd thing I see with your message.
Failing that (as it is likely to do), could provide the original email you sent (which should then validate), as extracted from your MUA? That would allow comparing it with the one that ended up being sent, to figure out what the mailing list did.

Platonides added a comment to T177404: Expired user groups not added to user_former_groups table.

Why does this need a second task. I see this as one issue.¹ Whenever the entry on user_groups is removed from there (either by another user_groups action or by the cron job), that must add it into user_former_groups (if not already there).

@Hugi: I think CheckUserHooks::logLoginAttempt will need to be public, not protected.

I would actually find that a that system provides a signed copy (such as a pdf of the edit with some boilerplate explaining the contents) would be more useful.

@Huji I think the point is that nothing can use that User-Agent. You are setting a variable that cannot be read…

Platonides added a comment to T185319: IRC RecentChanges feed: code stewardship request.

I was just trying to address the stated concern, not make it a perfect solution (we will probably still have irc.wikimedia.org for some time, so it would be good that things were better). Also, I am assuming bots will reconnect and rejoin with near-zero downtime, trying several A records as needed.
