First, @Kipod I believe I merged the change since @ori had other changes that depended on it with the understanding that we could easily revert it if need be. But yes I agree with Ori that consolidating discussion here would have saved a lot of headaches.

This sounds like the best long-term solution. How should we coordinate moving forward with the first stages of refactoring?

I use FlaggedRevs on enWiki and would like to see it retained as a protection option, so I plan to lend a hand to make that happen. I won't be able to fix much of the high-level stuff, but hopefully working on some of the smaller tasks will free up more experienced developers for the critical tasks.
Seems related to the request at T218090
Possibly related to T275181?
@Majavah I can't find documentation for Special:Stabilization, and it doesn't seem to exist on enwiki or mediawiki. On what wiki are you encountering this error? What specific steps do I need to take to reproduce the error?
Main issue of the task is resolved, will open new ticket with the additional request
Having action=parse return something other than the most recent revision is a bad idea. There might be value in creating a flag that allows the user to signal their preference for stable revisions like parsestable=true, but I agree with Aklapper that this should not be the default behavior.
6 year-old request for UX change. With existing production errors and no code steward, this request is unlikely to be completed soon and shouldn't take priority over core functionality.

I can confirm that this is a problem on Firefox 84 (Debian testing) and Firefox 85 (Ubuntu Groovy)

Please fix flagged revisions asap as I cannot modify pending changes protection on EnWiki

@Urbanecm I've uploaded the set at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Enwiki20B-2x.png, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Enwiki20B-1.5x.png, and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Enwiki20B.png which should fit within the 135x160 limit. They'll need compressed as well which @Jdforrester-WMF did for the first set but I don't quite understand enough to do myself. If you need the straight svg, it's also available at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WP20_EnWiki20_SimplifiedLogo_BillionEdits.svg

@Aklapper Earlier this year you marked the Gadgets 2.0 raodmap as historical. I totally understand reserving the namespace for future use, but being reserved also means we should hear allocation requests. The original plans have apparently fallen through, so the tentative allocation has practically been forfeited. If communities have plans for the namespace, we should seriously consider allowing usurpation. Similarly, if a city administration plans to build a road and allocates no funds or work to it for nearly a decade, I would bet they'd seriously consider a community request to build a park there instead--they were the ones who slept on the plan after all.

I'm confused. Tech News made it seem like this change would cause users with noratelimit to start hitting limits, but it seems like it's just adding the option to see what the limits would be. Am I correct that rate limits still won't apply to those with noratelimit?

We should consider granting to autoconfirmed by default, though I'm not sure it's the right course. Since it only allows deletion of single revision redirects, I doubt that misuse will lead to serious disruption, and with rate limits any problems should be caught before they get out of hand. That said, since revisions are deleted, any problems would have to be resolved by admins because non-sysops wouldn't be able to figure out where the redirect pointed before the page was deleted. For smaller projects with few admins, that might be a bottleneck to avoid.

This is a common problem when FlaggedRevisions is used with an autoexpiry. On enWikipedia editors will often request protection after the PC protection auto-expired and it's difficult for sysops to evaluate the need for further protection because the revisions are no longer flagged. I'll look into whether this can be improved.

@Xaosflux Yep, I've just uploaded a revised patch and the builds are passing. Presuming the CR goes well, it should be ready.

I’m guessing either you’re pushing to gerrit incorrectly or you don’t have rights to amend other people’s patches...
I've got a revised patch ready which doesn't have a merge conflict and does include tests, but I'm having trouble getting it submitted to gerrit; my patches keep getting rejected by remote. I'm going to keep troubleshooting, but for those who want to try their hand, Gergő Tisza's changes need to be moved to includes/Permissions/PermissionManager.php because the modified functions were moved out of Title.php in gerrit patch 495832

You may want to take a look at the Chess diagram template and its associated lua module (also written by @Kipod). I'm not sure how easy it is to turn lua modules into extensions, but if we want to support static, single position diagrams, it would probably be easier to start there since it already has features such as variable board sizes, fairy chess pieces, and on-board annotations like arrows.

@Jcross Thanks for the triage. That is the goal, yes, however no WMF team is sponsoring this project yet so T244075 has been stalled. You should probably triage this task as lowest priority or stall it (depending on your workflow) until I can talk more with WMF stakeholders. Thanks!
Feb 4 2020
@Jdforrester-WMF No worries! Would you be able to point me to a person or documentation that could explain this more and how to go about resolving it? Needing a WMF staff sponsor wasn't mentioned in the mediawiki documentation, so I'm not entirely sure what to do next. The English Wikipedia community has wanted something like this for years, but every plan to implement it has been stalled. Any information on how to get this unstuck would be appreciated.

@Jdforrester-WMF No staff are sponsoring it that I'm aware of; so far this is a volunteer effort.
