TTO added a comment to T20209: Provide consistent native way to attribute offsite users in revision history.

The import system has always assumed that any revisions attributed to user "X" in the import XML (that is, user X on the source wiki) should belong to the user X that exists on the target wiki, if such a user exists. In the pre-SUL days, this assumption was rather shaky at best, and is still troublesome when importing across wiki clusters. But in a world of SUL finalisation, the assumption is actually pretty reliable, so I don't see this as such a big problem as it used to be. That's not to say we shouldn't still fix it, though.

  • commonswiki - 1 invalid pagelinks row (we didn't run this over the pagelinks table on large wikis before, so this one wouldn't have been found last time around)
  • trwiki - 2 invalid titles in the page table, which need to be repaired by hand
  • zhwiki, zhwiktionary, zhwikibooks - many invalid categorylinks entries persist. The script was clearly run with --fix on these sites, because the invalid category rows are gone. Might need to investigate what's happening here

TTO added a comment to T164167: change_tag table needs redesign.

It uses varchar instead of being a foreign key to another table or at least it's not a hash for faster lookup

I assume the reason it (and tag_summary) were written using varchar tag names as identifiers was to avoid having to make an additional join whenever you query ct_tag or ts_tag. We don't really care about the speed of lookups on ct_tag in general. On the other hand, whether this actually matters from a performance perspective is something @jcrespo would know more about.

I can't help but notice that the Wikipedia logo in the top-left is missing in the initial screenshot. Is this just a coincidence?

TTO closed T2974: "Did you mean . . ." search feature to automatically spellcheck all search terms as Declined.

See my previous comment. MW's built-in search is intentionally basic. If you would like this functionality on your own wiki, you need to install one of the search extensions.

You cannot modify the styling of Special:Preferences or Special:UserLogin. This is intentional. I understand that it is done so that users can reset their styles if they have set them incorrectly.

TTO added a comment to T163974: MediaWiki 1.29.0-wmf.21 breaks JavaScript collapsing ({{boîte déroulante}}) on fr.wikisource for some users.

It sounds like one of your user JavaScript files included some deprecated functions, which have been altered (as announced in Tech News recently). In order to see the effects of commenting out the JavaScript files, you needed to clear your cache.

TTO added a comment to T53540: Support cross-wiki rights change notification in Echo.

I just looked into this. The reason why this is hard is that the Echo event occurs on the central wiki (metawiki in our case) but needs to be inserted into another wiki's database, which appears to be completely unsupported by Echo's infrastructure.
