lfaraone added a comment to T218808: Create user preference to enable unhide=1 by default.

I wrote such a script as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:LFaraone/autounhide.js , although didn't spend much effort on it and am not experienced in writing MW user scripts.

@Daimona got bitten by this today, so was considering poking at it again, if you haven't had a chance to get started.

lfaraone added a comment to T207085: Suppressed edits remain examinable in AbuseFilter.

@Daimona, if you view the linked edits, you see that the actual edits and summaries are suppressed, but the contents of those edit summaries are visible via "examine" even if logged out.

First: I personally like reCAPTCHA, and think it provides a lot of value from a security/abuse PoV. Yet we need to consider carefully whether we can deploy it on Wikimedia projects as it stands.

Is this actually something worth implementing? HTTPS should be preferred as a transport in almost every case -- the performance downsides are low, and the security improvements are worthwhile for almost every use case that isn't inside a WMF datacentre (e.g. has a trusted path to gerrit)

lfaraone added a comment to T102814: Decom old multiple-subdomain wikis in wikipedia.org.

The English Wikipedia Arbitration Committee moved from arbcom.en.wikipedia.org to arbcom-en.wikipedia.org (see T33335). As long as the new hostname continues to work (the one that isn't a subdomain of en.wikipedia.org), we're fine with the move.

lfaraone updated subscribers of T106282: action=query list=checkuserlog API response is inconsistent with other action=query responses.

Changing this would be a backwards compatibility break, which isn't something to do lightly. But this also seems likely to be a little-used module, so it's not necessarily impossible.
To proceed, we'd need to try to determine how many clients are actually using checkuserlog to weigh the advantage of improved consistency against the disadvantage of breaking all existing clients.

lfaraone added a comment to T87217: Make OTRS sessions IP-address-agnostic.

If one is using tethered mobile broadband from Three (a UK mobile operator) using an Android handset to provide a personal hotspot, every slight jolt in mobile connectivity led to a new IPv4 address being granted. When I used to commute by train, the loss of an OTRS session every time one went through a tunnel for a second or two was fatal to my ability to handle any tickets.

Because your have a new ip when reconnecting.
I think the IP checking is a useful security measure and should not be disabled.

Second Rjd0060's comment here. OTRS can be configured to stop constantly comparing your current ip with your 'login ip' (see my first comment), and, of course, technically, we could change that setting, but since I/we have no idea about the potential security implications, ops has to make that call IMHO.

Does IP-affinity really provide a lot of security benefits? Or are
there other problems with OTRS that make this problematic... :(

lfaraone added a comment to T66818: Mitigate strict DMARC policy on the mailing lists.

This is fixed in Mailman 2.1.18, see the release announcement:

The from_is_list feature introduced in 2.1.16 is now unconditionally available to list owners. There is also, a new Privacy options -> Sender filters -> dmarc_moderation_action feature which applies to list messages where the From: address is in a domain which publishes a DMARC policy of reject or possibly quarantine. This is a list setting with values of Accept, Wrap Message, Munge From, Reject or Discard. There is a new DEFAULT_DMARC_MODERATION_ACTION configuration setting to set the default for this, and the list admin UI is not able to set an action which is 'less' than the default. The prior ALLOW_FROM_IS_LIST setting has been removed and is effectively always Yes. There is a new dmarc_quarantine_moderation_action list setting with default set by a new DEFAULT_DMARC_QUARANTINE_MODERATION_ACTION configuration setting which in turn defaults to Yes. The list setting can be set to No to exclude domains with DMARC policy of quarantine from dmarc_moderation_action.
dmarc_moderation_action and from_is_list interact in the following way. If the message is From: a domain to which dmarc_moderation_action applies and if dmarc_moderation_action is other than Accept, dmarc_moderation_action applies to that message. Otherwise the from_is_list action applies.
