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).

Yep, this is correct behaviour. The idea is that when importing from another wiki, the usernames do not relate to users on your wiki, so they are distinguished with this prefix.

Bad things happen if you try to do huge imports. To make the import work, try turning off "import all revisions of the page" - it's not required for license compliance so long as you link back to the source page (which the import process does automatically anyway).

And why did the last row in change_tag have ct_tag_id NULL? It seems probable that ct_tag_id will eventually become part of the primary key, so I'm not sure why it is even allowed to be NULL. (never mind, I guess this is necessary for the window between the schema change and running the script)

It's great that you found a solution to your problem, but what's the actual issue that you would like dealt with in this task? If everything is now OK we can just close this task.

TTO added a comment to T193620: Investigate the parsing of config files for bad templates and categories.

In my mind user-defined regex is essential for this system to be fully effective. Maybe not essential for an MVP, true. But a lack of proper replacement functionality in existing tools was one of the things that drove me to build powerful regex replacements into FtCG - it seriously minimises the amount of grunt work involved in performing transfers, in some cases reducing it to no manual work at all.

TTO updated subscribers of T194086: JavaScript warnings shown at the top of JSON pages can be misleading.

At the very least jswarning should go, but I think they should all go. There's nothing scary about JSON. @Bawolff might think differently though...

TTO added a project to T44938: Expanding widgets fails for numerical-only categories with "Problem loading data", no request sent: Patch-For-Review.

Patch at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/429646/. Basically as suggested by @Schnark way back in 2013. Not tested, but it seems as though it should fix the problem without introducing new ones.

If you code it up I will be able to let you know whether it makes sense :)

@jcrespo One of the things we are talking about is the queries in this function. How would you feel if that function was called every time Special:AbuseFilter/* was GETted by a user with relevant permissions (mostly sysops, global sysops, stewards and so on)?

With your method, this isn't possible (you cannot list every non-existent tag)

  • Was the tag ever used by an abuse filter? If so, the tag is OK.

Let's just take a step back here: what problem are we trying to solve here? It seems that we need to allow tags used by other abuse filters, but not tags that are manually defined or in use by other extensions or the MediaWiki software.

Ah, I see. I knew there was a sordid history here (the original patch goes back to 2015). In any case, Matt Flaschen's account is disabled, so I don't think he will be commenting here.

Even when a tag is actively being used by another filter, why should it not be available to another filter? Why shouldn't multiple filters be able to assign the same tag?

It's one of those things that can be quite dangerous (especially for newbies) and because of that support has not been added so far.
