aezell added a comment to T169441: Spike: Page Curation should create a new AfD discussion page if one already exists [8 hours].

I think it's fine in this case if our first go at this is focused on the existing EN-wiki only scope. It's not ideal and certainly not what we'd do if we had the chance to start from scratch. However, given the scope of a Wishlist item, I think holding to that for this work is acceptable.

aezell updated subscribers of T185785: Display an error message when users do not have JavaScript enabled.

I like the redirect to a PHP page with translations. Simple, incremental, and easy to change later should we want to do something fancier because we want more of a NoJS experience.

...a clever attacker could probably easily defeat it using an adversarial network.

I think that's probably true, however, we are more likely trying to stop the drive-by vandal than a serious coordinated attack. If we could reduce by 10% the amount of inappropriate images admins had to deal with, we'd be saving hundreds of hours of people's time.

aezell added a comment to T225774: [Timebox: 8 hours] Database reports tool experiencing SQL timeouts.

It's the GROUP BY that causes the query plan to do a filesort which is the problem as the optimizer tool tells us. I think the COUNT(*) AS revisions makes this use a temporary column and the GROUP BY is on that column. As far as I know, an index can't help that problem though the query is making use of the rev_page index apparently.

Let's make the first step of this work to setup a cron on production to restart the service once (maybe twice) a day. That should be done soon to get rid of the user impact. Then, we can do the effort to fix this.

aezell added a comment to T223174: [Timebox - 8 hours] Investigation: Watchlist Expiry.

The approach @MaxSem outlines above seems to boil down to our trying to cause the least amount of impact on other services. I agree that having a separate watchlist_expiry makes the most sense. That allows us to have a cron which cleans the watchlist table on some schedule. All the rest of the code could remain the same. I agree with Max that we could by convention say that the expiration is "best effort" and that it might be an hour or two off. That depends on how often we think we could have the cron run.

aezell added a comment to T221334: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent.

This could mean that users potentially aren't receiving the headers for their requests in the right way. We don't know what that means for the user experience.

aezell added a comment to T221335: Ensure wsexport logs all exceptions.

Based on what @MaxSem says above, it sounds like we want to filter to certain kind of meaningful exceptions. That likely means we'll need to filter out some non-error/crash type exceptions.

@MaxSem Are we pushing changes like this and the other recent ones out to staging and production or just production?

aezell added a comment to T221804: Make an easy way to preview night mode styling.

I'd rather we not spend efforts on this and focus on getting the extension built. Then we can iterate on the testing there with the CSS that's been tested via the method that's already available.

I tested this and no longer receive the error. I'm approving the review in Github.

@jmatazzoni Did @Niharika show you how to apply the custom CSS to any wiki and/or page? That might be helpful for you.

aezell added a comment to T221403: Add night mode inversion code with a feature flag, so we can test it out.

This is now invalid. The result of the "invert" isn't high enough fidelity for what we want. We should strive towards something more like what the mobile app does. Maybe we can learn from their code?
