I do have a local test wiki (tracking the master branch), but I wasn't able to reproduce the issue by following the steps in the task description. @Urbanecm if you're able to reproduce the issue locally it would be great if you could share the relevant configuration in your LocalSettings.php (or if you have other idea why this might not be consistently reproducible); thanks!

wctaiwan added a comment to T299896: Massmessage's content handler sometimes parses the delivery list as an empty HTML.

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply the refactor was at fault, just trying to document what I've looked at in case it was relevant. Do you have suggestions for how to investigate further or reproduce the issue? It seems pretty unlikely that this was broken by a change to MassMessage (the content model logic hasn't meaningfully changed in years: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/plugins/gitiles/mediawiki/extensions/MassMessage/+log/refs/heads/master/includes/Content), but I got pretty lost trying to navigate the relevant code in core...

@Ladsgroup or @roman-stolar do you have any idea what might be going on here, or what recent core changes might cause something like this? (The content model logic in MassMessage hasn't been touched in a while.) I couldn't reproduce the issue on my local test wiki, and I haven't had much luck tracing the code to see what is setting $generateHtml to false.

I put up a proof of concept for rewriting the links in JS at https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Wctaiwan/rewritePathVariant.js and started a discussion at https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:互助客栈/技术#在瀏覽過程中保留中文變體 for potentially adding something like this to Common.js on zhwiki. It wasn't complex as I'd feared, and anecdotally the performance seems acceptable.

@Winston_Sung can you provide reproduction steps (a link to some wiki page where people can see the bug in action, or better yet, a list of steps to trigger the bug so other people can debug on their own wikis) for the issues you mentioned? That would help me or other people look into what's causing them, and potentially come up with a fix or some better workaround. It still feels weird to me to put zh-hant strings in zh-hans arrays, and other people having to maintain the code in the future would likely not know what to put in the arrays to maintain the correct fallback behavior.

wctaiwan added a comment to T223053: Chinese Wikipedia should remember variant selection for anonymous users across different pages.

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/core/+/742677/ doesn't quite work because the parser cache is shared for everyone (logged in and anonymous users alike) looking at the same variant. This means that e.g. a logged in user viewing an article would fill the cache with non-variant-specific links, and so an anonymous user who later visits the article would still have the same issue.

I confirmed that the truncation seems to be specific to PHP-FPM. With both mod_php and PHP's built-in web server, the Content-Length header is not set because headers_sent() is true at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/g/mediawiki/core/+/bc26dd1b446102cc861ff0d08cc7fc6efa8fd012/includes/exception/MWExceptionRenderer.php#79 With PHP-FPM headers_sent() is false at that point.

The patch has been merged. I'm waiting for it to be deployed so I can verify that it's working.

(Chinese is the only one of these that has particularly visible unlocalized content, that being the "[Last edited] X hours/days/months/... ago".)

wctaiwan added a comment to T95859: users should be able to delete their own Flow posts.

I basically agree with Quiddity that this needs community consensus, at least for enabling it on Wikimedia wikis. Deleting a post is much more similar to revdel (inaccessible to non-admins) than it is to reverts (still in page history). Individual communities can still allow for courtesy deletions.

Probably. I was thinking of abstracting that away so that extensions can just append themselves to an array, without needing a hook function, but that would also work.

One advantage with the gadget approach is that people can turn the features off very easily. I'm not sure it's a good idea to ask users to edit user CSS files (which is not that intuitive and potentially error-prone for non-technical folks) if they didn't want a certain feature. People are already complaining about the new sandbox link extension.

I think this is intentional. See the thread starting with https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/mobile-l/2015-March/008761.html

Actually, the Chinese Wikipedia tries to select a variant based on the user's browser settings, so it would affect anonymous users as well. My understanding is that right now, for most zhwiki readers, a significant portion of links would not trigger Hovercards.

I think I've got a reasonable fix. Will upload a patch in a second.
