WolfgangFahl added a comment to T312617: How to release an backwards incompatible version of an extension.

I don't have permissions to create projects in Phabricator. I'd love to take over the original project of PDFEmbed or create a new one for it and I'l love to create an new general RESTFul extension that has no name yet. How would i start those two projects?

I'd just love to make the project more linked to the Wikimedia world and I feel a bit remote with what I am currently doing.

Couldn't i open a project for the extension or might there already be one?

WolfgangFahl added a comment to T301756: Add BITPlan/diagrams support to Pywikibot.

Diagrams. bitplan.com happily accepts POST requests. So will any local installation of the python server or the PHP server by Samwilson. Would you like to see some kind of python API for this to simplify the usage or what are your needs to get this working for your usecase?

WolfgangFahl updated subscribers of T301756: Add BITPlan/diagrams support to Pywikibot.

@Xqt - thanks for considering our diagrams server. If you have any questions on how to install it on your own infrastructure let me know. If you'd like to use it as is you are welcome as long as the load on the server will
be moderate.

WolfgangFahl added a comment to T259427: Make "Error creating thumbnail: File missing" error message cover potential other reasons (such as incorrectly set $wg variables).

I was hit by this problem again today and did a google search on 'mediawiki "Fehler beim Erstellen des Vorschaubildes: Datei fehlt "' and you find lot's of wikis suffering from this problem. In at least one case the wiki was abandoned in 2016 and replaced by a wordpress site and i would not be suprised if the reason was that the error reasond could not be identified by the new admins of the wiki as soon as their mediawiki specialist was gone.
Please reconsider
This is way too complicated and very unlikely to happen.

This is all i have. See https://github.com/WolfgangFahl/py-3rdparty-mediawiki/blob/067d2291e79c2f73726c177ac0dc3a889d43ef19/tests/test_SMWApi.py#L148. With scriptpath returning "/" the behavior shown in the log below happened. https://github.com/WolfgangFahl/py-3rdparty-mediawiki/commit/067d2291e79c2f73726c177ac0dc3a889d43ef19 fixed this - the family python file is generated and now has the changes.

@Xqt - you are right might have been 6.0.1 - I'll watch the situation. Currently py-3rdparty-mediawiki uses semantic depencency:

**Do you have a sample for investigation?
It turned out that i had set the scriptpath to "/" where an empty scriptpath was expected. I think even that this used to work in the past. The workaround was to set the scriptpath to "" again.

WolfgangFahl added a comment to T298013: Please add Version to ExtensionDependencyError.

pymediawikidocker currently tries to use the same version of an extension accross all versions of MediaWiki. The version i intended to selected for this was 5.2.1 which actually works.
The composer syntax i used was "^5.2.1" which actually seems to select the version 5.3 for Mediawiki 1.31 which leads to an incompatibility.

in the case a timeout occurs the original error messages should IMHO be made available as part of the exception and a hint given that this information is available. Otherwise it's IMHO to hard to debug such situations.

Could you please point to the ticket/project where the progress of the intended improvement of setting up local versions of WDQS is tracked?

The problem persists. It just takes longer until it shows up. I can't upgrade my Mac OS and the machine was specifically bought just for the purpose of running wikidata hence the 12 cores and 64 GB of RAM.

I have now worked around the problem by using a HSL to RGB conversion in the script that creates the Icons. All 11 icons are now uploaded.

Thx for the hint. I still need more info to start working. How are the rights for extension git repositories managed? How do you get my initial code reviewed if i can't push it?

The Request I put in https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Gerrit/New_repositories/Requests was in the meantime corrected to have the path mediawiki/extensions/OpenJsCad - thanks for that. For the code review model I am not sure what the difference between the two is. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Gerrit/Privilege_policy#Other_MediaWiki_extensions does not even mention "open push". I am not familiar with the git repository of wikimedia as a contributor. In the past I worked with github projects where you can have a limited set of users with rights. How are the rights for extension git repositories managed?
