ahmad added a comment to T163081: PageForms + Flow leads to "invalid magic word 'default_form'" error.

An instance of MW 1.31.5 running 7.3.16-1+ubuntu18.04.1+deb.sury.org+1 (apache2handler) has just started to exhibit this exception after I upgraded from PF 4.7 to 4.8.

ahmad added a comment to T55791: update.php leaves unopenable UIDGenerator lock file.

I experienced the issue described by by @Calexit in T55791#3299344 when I wanted to move the temporary directory from the default to /var/tmp/umranica, so I did the following:

  1. cp -a /srv/repo/umranica/temp to /var/tmp/umranica
  2. set $wgTmpDirectory = "/var/tmp/umranica";

The permissions on both directories where identical: drwxr-sr-x www-data adm.
Attempting to open a Flow discussion page yielded:

Could not open '/var/tmp/umranica/mw-UIDGenerator-UID-88

ahmad added a comment to T245457: allow for comments in headers for CSV files.

You are right. The issue with the performance is different from
comments. I just brought it up prompted by your suggestion of a
row_offset option.

ahmad added a comment to T107128: Scribunto string comparison works case insensitive while the standard Lua case sensitive.

It is worth noticing that some non-WMF wikis need to set a locale other than en_US.utf8 to allow for the proper interaction with data stored in external sources.

ahmad added a comment to T245457: allow for comments in headers for CSV files.

Thinking of it, I don't think a row offset will help in my case, since I cannot know in advance how many rows are there before the sought one. But it might be useful in other cases.

ahmad added a comment to T245457: allow for comments in headers for CSV files.

I do not think there's a way to tell beforehand the number of comment
lines to expect in the header, since the idea is used to include an
arbitrary schema description.

By "arbitary address" I meant one set by the form administrator, instead of having to be that of a wikiuser account as currently is the case. Not one entered by the form user.
