kaldari added a comment to T178450: Deprecate and remove jQuery Badge plugin.

The plug-in could easily be moved to it's own non-core, non-mediawiki repo. The only thing it uses MediaWiki for is to check if the number passed to it is a non-latin zero, which doesn't matter for PageTriage (since it's only on English Wikipedia). We could then just make it a dependency in PageTriage via Composer and remove it from core.

Actually, it looks like the issue isn't when a page is move protected, but when the page can't be moved for some other reason, like a page of that name already exists, or the new title is invalid.

kaldari added a comment to T175226: Redirect legacy xtools to rewrite.

These have been rewritten in the new XTools, they're just a little buggy and lacking a few features. We'll get to that eventually, so I would recommend leaving these two as-is for now until the rewritten versions go live.

Does it really even make sense having these in XTools? They are both specific to English and German Wikipedia rather than being general purpose tools. I haven't looked at the code though, so I don't know how integrated they are with the shared XTools architecture. Also, I'm worried that if we just leave them until the versions in the new XTools are running, we're never going to actually deprecate the old XTools.

  • Riding the train: The maintenance script rides the deployment train and ends up on all the wikis a week after merging. Then you, or someone with access to terbium, runs the maintenance script.

kaldari added a comment to T176754: Regularly purge expired temporary userrights from DB tables.

If purging is undesirable on production, which is something I can agree with, wikireplicas can create "compatibility layers" like a view that shows only non-expired rows as a compromise option (which is transparent to wikireplica users).

Personally, I would prefer that we do the purging at the source. It's confusing to me when there are big differences between the wikireplica data and the production data, and I'd like to keep them as synced as practically possible (with appropriate differences for security and privacy). Is there a down-side to purging in production?

If this is going to be done by a maintenance script and a cron job, you may want to look at how PageTriage or PageAssessments does this as an example. The maintenance script would live in the core MediaWiki repo and the cron script that runs maintenance script the would live in the operations/puppet repo (probably in modules/mediawiki/manifests/maintenance/). @Dzahn can help with this.
