labster added a comment to T11781: Importing the bulk of the derelict 1d4chan.org wiki to the new one I just created.

Oh, also you have the wrong license on your wiki. 1d4chan was under CC-BY-NC-SA 3.0, which can be safely be converted to CC-BY-NC-SA 4.0, but not CC-BY-SA 4.0 as currently on the site.

I can login on Meta, and that cookie will work on Meta and all other Miraheze.org wikis, but not on kanrikyara.miraheze.org.

labster added a comment to T10961: DataDump (static) download timeout at exactly 5 minutes.

I'm just going to give my two cents here, but increasing the timeout for NGINX is probably not the best idea. Miraheze's resources are already stretched thin and increasing the time that connections are left open would only add to the strain on the servers for probably something little wikis will actually need to utilise. It would probably be more worthwile getting a steward to provide the dump rather than all of the potential side effects of raising the timeout limit.

labster added a comment to T10093: Recent Changes on theresnothingbetter.miraheze.org is throwing internal errors.

Interesting stacktrace. You can tell what happened is that there were pages named Draft:_Foo before a namespace was added, but then when the Draft: namespace was added, the page is interpreted as a page named _Foo in the Draft NS. And nothing is supposed to begin with a space/underscore. It might be fixable by renaming the page, but since it's RecentChanges being broken, I wonder if it would continue to be broken after renaming for seven days.

That's really disappointing. I understand that incidents happen, and a lot of things are out of our control once it's started. But there were no actions identified to take in the future, which means Miraheze learned nothing from a week of partial downtime. I am now significantly more worried about the future of Miraheze than I was when I was getting 503 errors half of the time.

I do not believe it will break things. I thought I commented in some thread that they did not replace the hook with anything equivalent functionality; the proposed workaround is not yet implemented in Mediawiki or the skins -- except Skin:Minerva and we don't want to force everyone onto mobile. There's nothing wrong with using a deprecated hook, so I'd suggest going forward with this extension until equivalent functionality is available, or the hook is removed.

Crowncloud is cheap but the ToS worries me a bit. Get two DMCA takedowns, your account is terminated immediately. Host any content that educates about piracy, your account is terminated immediately. (???) For backups they're probably fine, but for any other service I'd start to worry. From their ToS, I think their business model is cheap because it's based on shutdown first, ask questions later.

labster added a comment to T3108: Make sure we are in compliance with the GDPR.

No opinions in particular. I've heard of the GDPR, but I don't really know what, if anything, we'd need to do to come into compliance.

Maybe I need to find another way for people to pay first. But yeah, I noticed the large chunk of server cost this month, too.

labster reassigned T3054: Increase misc3 resources from labster to Southparkfan.

I would like to know what I'm approving first, thanks. Is this 1GB SVZS to 2GB SVZS?

Sent a message upstream, looks like it's a corporate-managed git, so I sent an email to their security address.

Security review failed. I kind of feel bad because it would be the most obvious XSS to any admin, because people would probably notice a page title named Foo" onload="alert('hax!');, but so it goes. The whole extension could stand to be rewritten using the mediawiki Html class.

labster removed a project from T3087: Requesting Description2 on wiki.tulpa.info: Extension-Review.

Extension looks good to me. Nothing to complain about, all modern looking code with appropriate stripping. Security approved.
