TerraCodes updated subscribers of T45956: Rename $wmf* to $wmg* in wmf-config.

Isn't $wmf* better than $wgWMF tho?

That depends. The Config abstraction layer in MediaWiki maps logical names (e.g. "ArticlePath") to a global named $wgArticlePath. If we used "wgWMF", these variables could (in the future) be managed through the same system, interacting with $wgWmfRealm as "WmfRealm".

Anyway, that's a later step. We can at least standardise first on one of the two patterns we already use (wmf* -> wmg*).

TerraCodes added a comment to T199012: Gerrit's "Show Diffs" button does not always expand all diffs for each changed file.

I could reproduce for a minute but then it worked. It's because that file is large.

So i would call that expected behaviour. Just need to wait for it to open :)

TerraCodes added a comment to T198890: Provide administrators a tool to enable a serverside blackout on a wiki.

@TerraCodes The ones we've seen for the recent blackout, as I was saying. Itwiki had more ore less three days to decide for a blackout, and there has been some uncertainties until one hour before the effective blackout. Other wikis have had even less time, and in order not to be late they opened short polls (we're talking of a matter of hours, not days), for instance cawiki. Some wikis actually ended up with nothing done because of not enough time left to vote, for instance elwiki. In such a situation, where time is really crucial and should be spent in reaching consensus, communities should have a quick way to enforce their decision. At any rate, this is the classical situation that you can't actually foresee, and for which we need to be ready, no matter how rare such situation could be.

TerraCodes added a comment to T190015: Create separate user group for editing sitewide CSS/JavaScript that does not include administrators by default.

Both this and T71445 are useful things to do.

T71445 hasn't happened yet because it's much more complex to design and build.

Actually it can be something like:

Re-introduce superlock which locks these css and js pages.
Let those pages be edited by the staff usergroup only, or whatever.

Yeah. I wouldn't like if I enabled a "gadget-foo" globally and then when I access xyzwiki I see that local users created a totally different gadget with the same name as the global one, and which does something I do not want.

Worse than some people simply not liking it, that would most likely be considered a security issue.

TerraCodes added a comment to T188382: Incorrect indentation of Global Preferences in Timeless skin.

I wonder if this was fixed, since it looks fine for me?

After trying some other domain names, it looks like more than just this domain has this error.

Dzahn why remove all the subscribers?

Because when you click "create subtask" on a parent task Phab copies all the subscribers over, but even though they were interested in the parent task, i'm pretty sure they don't want another 2 dozen notifications about the details of the decom workflow.

@aborrero you might want to change your password, since you posted it in the logs above :)

Can ContentTranslation handle this being down, or will this cause issues/errors?

Its already being reverted by https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/418700. Also why ping 6 different people?

TerraCodes added a comment to T188200: Allow signatures to be global.

Maybe convert the links when saving the signature? eg, [[Benutzer:Username]] would become [[{{ns:User}}:Username]]

That's hard to achieve for all links. And users might not be very happy with us overwriting their signature links automatically.
