mmodell added a comment to T143162: Reduce task notification noise/frequency of changes to associated open patchsets.

@greg: not really but currently refs/changes are not, by default, "published". See Diffusion User Guide: Permanent Refs. Shortly after this behavior landed in Phabricator, I ran a script to update the settings for every diffusion repository and exclude refs/changes from being "published" which means that although the refs exist, they should not generate notifications or any other activity in phabricator. Once a patch merges into a "real" branch, then phabricator treats it as permanent and publishes appropriate notifications (if any.)

So the question is whether this is worth the effort to implement. I'd imagine it would eventually pay for itself in time saved dealing with 2factor resets. And that is not even to mention the improvement in user experience vs. losing their account or dealing with jumping through hoops to prove their identity.

Generate N codes, save them in a database column somewhere? :)

@Reedy: yeah I'm inclined to look into adding this feature to Phabricator though I am not sure how it should be implemented.

Unfortunately, yes this requires upstream changes. I actually spent quite a bit of time looking into this and I haven't been able to figure out which part of the phabricator code is enforcing this or how I would go about changing it.

That seems reasonable to me, though I didn't make the procedure at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Help/Two-factor_Authentication_Resets
