Current progress:

  • Created maps-tiles1 with debian stretch
  • Created maps-puppetmaster to be able to write experiment with puppet manifest for the new host
  • Currently stuck on installing puppet master standalone, as it insists on creating /home/gitpuppet, which fails (acl ???) Now fixed
  • Figured out more of the dependencies and setup of the old server. Added to the documentation
  • Pondering how to tackle installing mod_tile in the future, as there is no package for this. Can compile from source, but..
  • make install mod_tile doesn't work for now as it fails to install on libiniparser Fixed by installing from /tmp ?
  • Wondering what the difference is between puppet httpd and apache2 modules, they seem to be used interchangeably..

@Sasheto hi, I haven't forgotten about your request... Please don't take this the wrong way, but lately there has been quite a LOT of malicious activity and your account is brand new.. And I can't find any history of your activity with the projects... At this time that makes me uncomfortable to give you access to this set of servers as one of them is actually rather critical and could allow a person to do a lot of harm to wikimedians. I'm considering how we should approach this.

TheDJ added a comment to T209939: Convert Proofpage WE layout to use display flex.

If you want full free-flow resizing, you'll need to turn off the display flex rules as soon as you start resizing. Textbox resizing is kind of bonkers really, it doesn't really fit into the standard rules of CSS dimensioning, as soon as you start applying it, all CSS rules regarding automatic sizing are thrown out the window.

It's worth to read previous comments (such as T165189#4789628) before pretending that somebody could speak for "the community".
Please take meta-level discussions (such as 'developers and communities') somewhere else. It's off-topic here. Thanks.

I'm sorry, but the community (including myself) has every right to provide their input here or wherever when it is clearly affecting them. Pulling the wool over our eyes or telling us to go elsewhere is inappropriate.

TheDJ added a comment to T103772: Toolbar buttons that invoke dialogs insert text into incorrect text areas when there is more than one WikiEditor on a page.

Note to self: This is because the dialogs are shared between editors... If a dialog was already opened before, it is reused the next time, even if it is from a different editor....

@Nikerabbit maybe those pages should be deleted then ? To avoid people accidentally using them ?

ping @Umar hi, can you provide your feedback to my change that is linked in the comment above ? I've not removed the russian translations, as that would break any wikitext that would already uses them.

TheDJ added a comment to T152139: Update Maintenance scripts in extensions to use $this->requireExtension().

@PFWOz yes. We always advise people to use extensions that are of the same branch version as core. So you shouldn't use a 1.32 version of an extension on an LTS 1.27 release of core. We provide no guarantees that this will work, and only after 1.27 we are keeping a limited set of information per extension that keeps track of compatibility (But because of how new that is and the enormous backlog, I wouldn't rely on this information yet to judge actual compatibility).

TheDJ added a comment to T210539: As a new MediaWiki user who often edits via the GUI editor, I really wish I could change text color quickly.

While in general this might be common, this is unlikely to be offered by the MediaWiki core team.

This labs feature of the original WikiEditor was removed from the extension quite some while ago. Ticket no longer valid.
