dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T187014: Proxies information gone from Zero portal. Opera mini pageviews geolocating to wrong country.

@dr0ptp4kt trying to understand: is this the bug that makes the request for the proxy list return empty when they should not?

dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T187014: Proxies information gone from Zero portal. Opera mini pageviews geolocating to wrong country.

The lack of tagging did not appear to be related to any config blob change on the portal at Zero:-OPERA (the last change was too far back for that to be plausible).

Hi all, I apologize for not replying on this ticket. In practice while I know of good solutions here, it's moot given current resourcing and projected projects. Now, if this becomes an area for further prioritization as part of security/privacy initiatives, I'm happy to consult.

I think decline is fine, but the verbiage in the settings screen is then still confusing for iOS users and there's the question of consistency for multidevice users (cross-platform mobility users do exist, although anecdotally their somewhat rare) - how to resolve that? Many iOS users are unaware of the jump to top feature inbuilt into iOS apps such as Safari.

I'm looking for a time to sync with @Lydia_Pintscher @daniel @Tpt for next steps. The Platform Evolution program that @Fjalapeno is working on certainly has a strong API and documentation component. In addition to that, my sense is we still need to discuss sustainable data entry (+ingestion), knowledge modeling, and - for lack of a better term - partner management (for some appropriately scoped definition of partner) pieces.

dr0ptp4kt updated subscribers of T173537: Phab file uploads are blocked for inactive Zero IP ranges.

To provide some extra information: header enrichment is done on connections with inactivated operators, as well as of course active operators, on Wikipedia Zero. On truly inactive operators, the simplest idea I've had is to to update the config of each operator, making the IP list for a given operator contain one improbable IPv6 address only. Updates of this nature would in effect would make the tagging go away. IP address updates in the configuration system for Wikipedia Zero in general should be done by @DFoy or with his blessing.

@Aklapper I'm unsure if it's PdfHandler. @matmarex it has a header match, but I'm not sure - when I spot checked yesterday it seemed like it was mainly PDFs, not images, but to be fair it's hard to say. Looping in @MarkTraceur @MaxSem @Tgr @brion for ping. Anybody have ideas on what might be going on and how to resolve?

Thanks, @Anomie ! Do https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/386014/ and https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/386012/ capture the sort of detail you had in mind? Thanks for the reassurance about the non-breakage.

Say, I noticed that calls to, for example, http://php5.local.wmftest.net:8080/w/api.php?action=zeroconfig&type=message&agent=<someUA> on my Vagrant instance with header forging (which would be equivalent to https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=zeroconfig&type=message&agent=<someUA> with VCL determining an X-CS header independently or https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=zeroconfig&type=message&agent=<someUA>&X-CS=TEST1 if using the parameter debugging technique...which gets send to the inbound origin) exercise ApiZeroBanner and ApiRawJsonPrinter. This type of URL is consumed from an internet context by native apps (and historically the FFOS web app).

@Dereckson thanks for pinging on this. @Deskana is now in the product owner role for this technology's rollout. I think there may be a couple outstanding questions on this, and we should defer to him on rollout.

dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T148843: GPU upgrade for stats machine.

An update: we looked into this. In short, we got stuck at the point of drivers. It appears that there may be a way to pure OpenCL-oriented driver support (i.e., without proprietary driver needs), along the lines of the links here, but it wasn't readily apparent. My impression is AMD may need to be asked how we'd do this. I'm going to be on some family leave for a longer period starting pretty soon (everything's fine, BTW), so I just wanted to note I probably won't have a lot of time to look at this between now and then.

+ @Deskana is taking over product owner duties for rollout. There are a few details about near-term and medium term blocking tasks, and I defer to him about those.

Thanks for asking. Aligning resources for code review is on the project manager's task list.

dr0ptp4kt reopened T176268: Feature flag ("kill switch") for TemplateStyles as "Open".

Re-opening, Gergo to implement - this is based on product manager request as a risk mitigation. None of us believe this is particularly hard (although there are probably differences of opinion about YAGNI), although having a configuration variable might at least streamline things in case one wiki is having an issue but all the others are okay.

Is this something we can consult with communities on as we rollout? If no one wants it, we don't have to implement it. If someone wants it, then we can add support for it. What do you think, @Deskana?

Thanks, @Ottomata. Any chance you could take a look at the GPU? I’d like to watch to learn something about the setup of this in Debian. We reserved a couple machines for this FY (ETA Q3+4) and may want to add GPUs...the thought being we’d use the same unit.
