OrangeStar added a comment to T11699: Automate checking that the custom domain is pointed.

WHOIS unfortunately has no future; soon enough, there'll be no guarantee that gTLDs have a WHOIS server, only RDAP will be guaranteed to work with them by 2025 (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/global-amendment-2023-en). Only problem currently is the low adoption rate of RDAP among ccTLDs since I think currently they don't have a requirement to have a RDAP server, but I think they'll follow suit sooner rather than later. RDAP also has a big advantage over WHOIS for our use case: it is machine readable JSON over HTTPS, much better than trying to parse WHOIS output (which is server-dependent). We should prepare for the future and support RDAP, therefore I still believe RequestSSL should use RDAP for this use case, and that we should write our own client library.

Unfortunately, while we can do that for CNAMEs (and will), we can't for NS.

I know how to check if we're the authoritative nameserver for a domain now. I'm going to use RDAP. I don't like any of the libraries that exist (only one exists which I don't really like, the rest are unmaintained), so I'll make one and upload it to Packagist. @Universal_Omega would it be OK to host the repo for this library on the Miraheze GitHub org or not?

Is puppet running on test151?

Of course they aren't working; those groups don't exist on your wiki. We should get a Steward to reset permissions.

OrangeStar awarded T11901: Allow a default loadout to be imported to wikis on creation a Love token.

OrangeStar updated subscribers of T11901: Allow a default loadout to be imported to wikis on creation.
  1. Storing the dumps: this relies on the idea that the dumps are exported as XML files from an actual wiki. My thought was that we could create a loadout wiki for each language, and periodically export that to a folder in Swift, and then the script would use the correct dump for the correct language variant of that wiki. I'm not sure if this would work, though, and would be a lot of wikis? But it is the idea I envisioned and is also how it is done on Fandom and previously Gamepedia. We could run a cron or something to automatically export the dump or something stupid like that.
  2. The Mainpage: this would also mean that we didn't have to use the maintenance script to create the main page, because it can be created by the loadout. Is this a good idea? I'd say so, since it would mean one less thing to have a script for.

Once RequestSSL is completed and all SSL requests are done via the extension, I propose that we remove it from Diffusion as it won't really serve a purpose anymore.
