This was before we improved the speed of tallying in T271824. Locally we found significant speed-ups. It's difficult to test on production given the limited availability of large elections. @jrbs is the above table still the case, since T271824?

jrbs added a comment to T273025: SecurePoll: Allow editing some of the election config post election-start.

@STran @Tchanders @Niharika When creating an election, the election's config is recorded in a page (e.g. https://vote.wikimedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/SecurePoll:154). This page is not updated when the election is edited. Does it need to be?

So, for example, I created this election, and its config was recorded on this page. I then modified the return-url and admin list, but the page still records and admins and return-url when I first created it.

I'm not sure why this isn't updating - is there somewhere else that updates if you alter the election settings? ...

@jrbs Sorry to comment on a closed task. So obviously the election settings are updated in the database, and (I think) that is all that matters as far as SecurePoll is concerned. It is just the page above which is not updated. I am not sure what uses that page. Maybe it was designed for third party scripts. Would you like me to raise a bug to get it updated as well when we edit an election?

jrbs added a comment to T271884: Investigate ways to allow WMF staff to be added to the voter list for board elections [8H].

Do we lock (WMF) staff accounts when staff leave the foundation, such that this query+check would maybe get us "current staff"... or is that something which we can't work out from the database alone?

Yes, it's part of the ITS off-boarding process, though it's not impossible some have been missed over the years.

jrbs added a comment to T271884: Investigate ways to allow WMF staff to be added to the voter list for board elections [8H].

There is already a group called staff but it currently grants the group member access to basically everything, including sensitive pages. It's currently only granted to a few people in the foundation, handed out by T&S on a case-by-case basis. In order to create a new group for all staff holders, we'll probably need to talk to someone in HR who manages user accounts. I am not very hopeful about a quick turnaround if we go that route (not that we are in a particular rush here).

jrbs added a comment to T275470: Eligibility list feature appears broken - let's remove it.

Personally I have never used the "autogenerate" functionality provided there. I looked into the settings from the 2017 Board Elections, which was the last major election we ran that did not use a hard-coded eligibility list, and it also does not appear to have made use of this functionality. Instead we just used the "basic" settings here, which seems to have worked just fine and done more or less the same thing that auto-populating the list would.

jrbs added a comment to T273693: Superset error: `Hive table 'wmf.webrequest' is corrupt. The number of files in the directory (64) does not match the declared bucket count (256) for partition`.

Hi @jrbs,
The problem comes from a change we made to the table on 2020-11-16 (see bottom of the https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Analytics/Data_Lake/Traffic/Webrequest#Changes_and_known_problems_since_2015-03-04 table).
Indeed data has not yet been deleted, as of today we still have data back to 2020-11-05.
The data can be queried correctly using hive, I think presto is more sensitive to structure incoherence (see https://github.com/prestodb/presto/issues/8557).

Elections from 2013 onwards never claimed to be secure; they didn't even claim to be consistent with the laws of mathematics, for that matter. Nothing new.

jrbs added a comment to T269029: Investigate issues with Tally function in SecurePoll [8Hr].

The fact that this process has gone without being understood or used for so long tells me that there might not be a need for the extra security measures that SecurePoll was designed to support.

Uh? People complained about the election not being run by a neutral third-party which could guarantee safe handling of the keys. The fact that concerns were steamrolled is not evidence people "did not understand" or "did not care".

jrbs added a comment to T271824: Improve the efficiency of vote decryption during tallying.

@jrbs @drochford When the time comes for testing this in production, it would be helpful to test tallying an encrypted election with the largest number of voters you might expect, to check whether the timeout limit is still being hit. If it is there are still more things we can do, but seems sensible to hold off unless we need to.

jrbs updated subscribers of T269029: Investigate issues with Tally function in SecurePoll [8Hr].

I'm getting a case of the nostalgias now. SecurePoll's whole security model was already present in the original version of BoardVote, which I wrote as a volunteer in May 2004. It was only the third extension to be created, after wikihiero and timeline. I advocated for voting and democratic processes in the fledgling Foundation and I was keen to do whatever technical work was required to support that.

SecurePoll was an abstraction of BoardVote, adding a concept of multiple elections, with configuration of elections in the database. I called it "SecurePoll" in reference to the encryption feature inherited from BoardVote.

jrbs added a comment to T255733: Forward emails addressed to privacy@wikidata to privacy@wikimedia.

To clarify: Do you want the mail to still be in OTRS but additionally also forward to the external address or do you want it to not arrive in OTRS anymore and only be forwarded to the external address?

The latter of these options; the privacy-related emails are handled directly from a Google inbox so it would make sense for this to function in the same way.

jrbs added a comment to T222467: Google still shows old logo for Wikimedia Foundation.

I have reported it via various Google dashboard systems connected to Foundation accounts (such as Search Console, etc.) since the logo was changed. In total, I have probably reported it to them in various places about a dozen times. I suspect we could ask the Partnerships team within Advancement to talk to our official contacts, but I admit being a little surprised their official methods do not work faster and that it has lingered this long.

Huh, I reported this to them on a whim to see if they'd replace it. Maybe they saw my report and just removed it. Technically fixes the concern...
