I'm struggling to see how "deprecation procedures" can necessarily be followed, as this isn't deprecation for removal, like that policy is mostly aimed towards.
Master has a fix for that, so it could mostly just be asking them to release the fix - https://github.com/romaricdrigon/MetaYaml/commit/1481b99679b29cbb50c88f3e10e4951ac64b8ad3
And FWIW, CheckUser stores IPs as the string and as a hexadecimal representation, which it uses for IP comparison and maths...
Given the IP address 18.104.22.168 it is impossible to reason that the IP address belongs to Wikimedia Foundation.

Reverting out of 1.35.0-wmf.1 (for now), due to ~240K errors in 90 minutes on enwiki

Sorted now. Some possible bumps to be done, but that’s a different problem
HHVM is definitely gone now :)
Except, it still clung onto the old versions...
Version bump reverted, as it's tracking ruflin/elastica versions
I think the only thing that is outstanding, but not tagged to this task is the commit to bump CirrusSearch to use the Elastica version with the versions of the libraries that don't require >= 5.6.99 - https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/mediawiki/extensions/CirrusSearch/+/542270/ but Cindy doesn't like it, for reasons I don't quite understand
I got bored of just kicking the failing test can down the road after 5 supporting backports to REL1_32 and REL1_33 to help this change

This isn't a bug, it's a feature request
Debian stable is on 7.3 so that's all good. Old stable is 7.0 so we don't care
It's been at MediaWiki for 14 years - https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Mainpage&action=history
I (@Daimona) think that extensions should *not* have an explicit PHP version requirement, unless it's (meant to be) different from the one in core.

Is this a bug about Phabricator? I think you might be reporting it in the wrong place...
Current failure on core from flow...
Vendor failing due to what is basically a cyclic dependancy on it and core
An amusing one to me was finding this in BlueSpice Foundation to just add helpers...

I do feel if we're going to be suggesting this is the way forward to do things (for whatever reasons)... We should get some love to lightncandy in MW Core and extensions that use it, rather than just sitting on an old unsupported version which is 0.23
