seth added a comment to T181024: AbuseFilter should not cast arrays into strings.

Oops, ok, I understand. Then I totally agree with both of you. Sorry for the interruption and thanks for the explanation. I should have read the php manual.

seth added a comment to T181024: AbuseFilter should not cast arrays into strings.

Of course, it is legal in some programming languages, but then the array would be converted into something reasonable, e.g. into the length of the array (as in perl).
Do you know any common languages, where array arr in
arr > 3
would be converted to a string by default? And if so, will then the '3' also be converted to a string? And the '>' will do a lexicographical comparison than?
Im my opinion this is far to much magic and the abuse filter language should not be contra-intuitive for programmers.

Right now I had a problem with
added_links > 10
Because of the implicit type casting, the syntax is correct, but this code does not do what one could expect, i.e.,
length(added_links) > 10.

seth added a comment to T214343: Create a Perl Docker image for use on the Toolforge Kubernetes cluster.

I've used CPAN locally at the old toolserver (ran by DaB.). Since there is labs, I just asked for some packages, and the admins installed them. For me this is an easy way.

seth added a comment to T34159: urls should be decoded before regexp matching.

A similar (or actually the same) problem occurs with translate.google.[^\/]{2,5}/translate.
Right now, google-translate-urls can be used to circumvent the SBL, and we don't know a good way to cope with that problem via SBL or edit filter.
It would be better, if the SBL finds the blocked URLs inside the google-translate url.

Hi!
Sorry, but I can't confirm, because during the last months I used the edit filter very(!) rarely. (So I can't confirm the opposite, too.)

That sounds great! Do we/I have to trigger anyone? Or do I just have to wait now?

I'm afraid, bdb808's answer does not help here, because the first part is just a repetition of what has been said already. And the API will not help, as Umherirrender already said.

I used the Parser.php changes mentioned at https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Typografie/Automatische_Leerzeichen#Regexps and it seems to work. I had to replace the order of a few entries (I've already done that at the wiki page).

If there is a problem with condition limit, you should see whether there is room for improvement in the filters before changing this.

Restricted Application updated subscribers of T23895: Change the name of the AbuseFilter extension.

The extension was meant to stop abusing behaviour, but it's also used to stop e.g. edits, that would have been destructive by accident. And of course, sometimes there are false positive hits, that cause a harmless edit by a harmless user to be logged forever. There are many users who dislike any public entry of theirselves in an "abuse log".

seth added a comment to T66541: regex expressions starting with caret (^) not functioning as per instructions say.

Actually the instructions at mw:Extension:SpamBlacklist#Blacklist syntax <s>are</s>were wrong, because all blacklisted domains will be php-joined like https?://[a-z0-9.-]*(sbl0_|sbl_1|...|sbl_n).
So if one want's to block an exact domain, the code
(?<=//|\.)t\.co\b
can be used, i.e., "a 't\.co\b' which is preceded either by two slashes or a dot".
We do that already at w:de, w:en and at meta for years now. I agree, it's better to fix the instructions rather than changing the code. I've done that now. -> won't fix?
