I don't think passing the generation to a background process and check within a loop every second if it was generated would be the proper way.

Platonides added a comment to T349333: VRTS issue with incoming forwards from a Chapter address.

If alice@example.com forwards to alice@example.net, then example.net should be aware of that, so that it considers example.com as a valid relay. Otherwise, this happens, and is expected.
The outgoing ip of that chapter (or any such entity forwarding to vrts) should be added to trusted_networks, so that SpamAssassin processes it correctly, see https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/SPAMASSASSIN/TrustedRelays

Platonides added a comment to T327440: Post-deployment Vector 2022 metrics analysis on English Wikipedia.

Accounts with just 1 edit will probably be just . Even those that are experienced wikipedians (e.g. a cross-wiki user from another language) and would thus perfectly know how to edit their preferences and change the skin, would probably not bother changing the skin if they are just passing by for doing a single edit, even if they didn't like the skin. The cost of editing the preferences is actually larger than standing with it for their brief interaction. It's after some editing that it would pay back. Maybe worth checking for people that edited for at least N days.

This seems a complaint that the diff of wiki pages misinterprets some cases as delete and readd instead of noting a new line was added in the middle. _In some cases_, since I think it does properly identifies them sometimes. But with no actual example, it's difficult to determine what's happening. Not that it will necessarily be fixable for all instances, diffing is not a simple task.

Platonides added a comment to T138093: Investigate query parameter normalization for MW/services.

Changing the ordering (perhaps coupled with varnish redirecting all '?title=X&action=history' to the new '?action=history&title=X' to avoid old forms) would cause an stampede in that it's like no history page is cached. I would need planification, but (partially rolled-out per wikis) I think that could be acceptable. history page requests are much lower than to articles, and they are cheap to produce at MediaWiki layer

Platonides added a comment to T299107: mx1001.wikimedia.org mail delivery timeouts.

@MoritzMuehlenhoff, did you see https://www.spinics.net/lists/stable/msg509296.html ?
Apparently upstream identified the issue as 09e856d54bda5f288ef8437a90ab2b9b3eab83d1 and reverted it on all stable trees (Debian might not have picked the revert though).

I would have expected the wikitech timeline to contain a final entry for "mx2001" back into (i.e. T297128)

Platonides added a comment to T291098: [TECHNICAL GOAL] Split Vector into 2 separate skins with 2 different keys.

Vector was created in 2009 (became the default in 2010), so instead of vector19 it would have made more sense to call it vector2009.

Platonides added a comment to T294120: Migrate eqiad Ganeti cluster to KVM machine type pc-i440fx-2.8.

If I understand this task correctly, currently the Ganeti cluster is running on stretch nodes. The VM themselves have no explicit kvm:machine_version set, which on stretch nodes means "pc-i440fx-2.8" but on buster nodes that would default to "pc-i440fx-3.1" and thus they would be incompatible.

Platonides added a comment to T298356: CentralAuth WAN Cache keys should be prefixed for db.

I think it should be something to set at the *BagOStuff level. MediumSpecificBagOStuff has the concept of a configurable keyspace, which is then inherited by the other classes, but MediumSpecificBagOStuff::makeGlobalKey() hardcodes the keyspace to global.

Platonides added a comment to T269130: Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) in Commons.wikipedia.org.

@Pealhasan.x2 one would generally mark the second report of a bug as a duplicate of the first one. However, in this case it was tracked on T293556, and only determined to be the same as this later. Marking it as a duplicate means "this is the same problem as T293556". It makes sense to put them in this orer since the work was done there. even though in this case it does happen that your report came earlier.

Platonides added a comment to T292369: Miraheze wikistats show zero activity.

Yea, the part that is on me is .. it deletes old data first and then tries to fetch new data and this combined with just weekly updates.. means it can break if a fetch just fails once and stay broken for longer than needed.

If we are going to make that the default for Japanese, I think it would be best not to manually add some manual markup for forcing it into every score.

We may submit it again if needed. I would expect findActorIdInternal to be a quick action. I guess the db connection timed out while it was doing all the slow file work so the next db action (which happened to be that findActorIdInternal) failed.

I find that the Article & Talk links that appear are a bit out of place. I would put it as a 'Discuss' link besides the edit link (which would then requires getting a suitable icon).
