"It should be the same" is not a bug. Do you have proof to indicate this behavior has changed from some earlier date?

Just in case anyone is wondering, I have a completed patch for this, but I had serious issues running the EditPage tests locally, which meant I wasn't able to write any tests. I idled in some of the above mentioned IRC channels for a few days but spotted precisely 0 active humans in any of them, which didn't really make me feel very welcome. One day I might be able to return to it.

Would it be possible to pull the message from this week's Tech News? By next edition, the code should be deployed so it will be able to be reused as is in the next edition.

TTO added a comment to T265716: Allow configurable default expiry time etc..

The first approach is always a safe assumption, I think, but this is not necessarily true for the second approach. It might be an edge case, but if someone explicitly set a watchlist expiry on a page, it may be reasonable to assume they intended to unwatch it at that exact time. For example, say it's Today's Featured Article, which they only watch for 24 hours. They have the "Add pages where I have performed a rollback to my watchlist" preference set to watch for 24 hours. If they revert an edit at the 23rd hour, they probably don't care to watch for another 24 hours on that particular page. So all in all, in my opinion is approach #1 of only applying an expiry if one doesn't already exist seems the most logical.

TTO added a comment to T301936: Interwiki prefix "wikipedia" not working on multilingual wikimedia projects .

The mystery here is why only the wikipedia: interwiki appears to be affected. If this is indeed the case, it's not actually a blocker to deploying to group2 (Wikipedia sites don't use the wikipedia: interwiki). But it's a bad regression on the group0/group1 sites currently impacted, including big ones like Commons, Meta and Wikidata.

TTO closed T218757: Long prefixes and short prefixes link to different language projects in non-english projects as Declined.

This is on purpose; the long names always link to the English project. To change this would be incredibly disruptive.

TTO edited projects for T215504: Page protection log shows the main page of the Finnish-language Wikinews as nonexistent, added: MediaWiki-libs-ObjectCache, MediaWiki-Special-pages; removed MediaWiki-Page-deletion, MediaWiki-Core-Snapshots, MediaWiki-Page-protection.

I'm removing the import and export project - it's possible that a bug existed in 2007 when the import(s) took place, but we're not going to try and solve an import bug based on evidence from 12 years ago.

TTO added a comment to T170099: Search returns random results when search query begins with a hyphen.

It's all good, @TJones. Thanks to you and @debt for investigating this in such detail back in 2017. I remember I was very impressed when I read the comments on this task, and especially the blog post! I regret not expressing my gratitude or commenting here at the time.

TTO added a comment to T162517: Remove $wgDisableUserGroupExpiry feature flag.

This change seems to have made group expiry a requirement rather than optional. Personally I'd like to disable this feature (or at least limit it only to certain users) because I get people applying expiries when they should not. Is there a reason this is no longer optional?

TTO removed a project from T206611: Wikidata error message: "Error: $1." with broken links: Wikimedia-Interwiki-links.

I would suggest that d: could be added to the beginning of the links. This way, they should work both on Wikidata itself and other wikis. This isn't really an interwiki linking issue (well, philosophically speaking, this happened because the interwiki links system is fundamentally flawed, but that's a tale for another day).

Do you really need to import all revisions? Just the most recent revision is sufficient for license compliance.
