I'm wondering if we could just make canned responses a MediaWiki interface page similar to MediaWiki:Deletereason-dropdown. Alternately, changing the form field from selectorother to combobox may work to make the canned responses editable in the form itself.

OrangeStar added a comment to T10683: Changes to current CreateWiki response system.

Part of this task is done: the canned responses are now available to JavaScript code on subpages of Special:RequestWikiQueue. However, I'm stalling the rest of this task on T11931 because my original idea of hacking the form in order to allow for canned responses to be edited is too hacky even for me. Having an API will allow for this to be done more cleanly.

I've deactivated rSSL, if we want we can delete it later.

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.

OrangeStar claimed T10683: Changes to current CreateWiki response system.

As a wiki creator: yes please. We just have to expose the canned responses to JavaScript, then add some JavaScript on our RL modules that adds the canned response to a textarea for editing by the wiki creator.

PR https://github.com/miraheze/CreateWiki/pull/447, potentially stalled waiting on a member of SRE to review — perhaps this can be pushed to betaheze?

I don't think you would need shell access to have merge access to extension repos as those aren't auto-deployed.

Dmehus added a comment to T10931: [ACCESS REQUEST]: New access for AmandaCath.

It's for access to Github repos I believe without needing to PR something, as well as have access to all extension repos. Others would know more though.

Note that an non-disclosure agreement is a required prerequisite before this request can even be evaluated

Actually per previous discussions with Owen via Discord, an NDA is not required for the Software Engineer position.

Technically, this is true, yes, assuming the Software Engineer is not requesting shell access. This is also true of the MediaWiki Engineer position. However, I do not see much point in this, given the low level of recent GitHub PRs/commits and the fact that any user could do software development for Miraheze without a title.

https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Miraheze_is_Not_Shutting_Down, while not a guarantee of Miraheze's survival just yet, makes it very clear there at least are a lot people interested in Miraheze's survival, and that there's a plan for it to survive. So I'd say now is the time to do some of the tasks here as Agent said, and show us what you got.

Reception123 added a comment to T10931: [ACCESS REQUEST]: New access for AmandaCath.

Ideally, Amanda should tackle some extension (CreateWiki, ManageWiki, etc.) tasks before being granted any access. I've yet to see them do anything related to coding and I've mostly observed her sorting Phabricator tasks or some basic mw-config changes.

I had been (well, still am) working on T10844, but with the recent decision to terminate the Miraheze project is it even necessary at this point?

AmandaCath added a comment to T10931: [ACCESS REQUEST]: New access for AmandaCath.

For the record, the globally banned user in question was my late sister, who unleashed a spambot attack against Miraheze on more than one occasion after being banned. Because we were living together at the time, it was next to impossible to distinguish us from each other in terms of technical data/CheckUser. But I was completely uninvolved and took no part in encouraging her disruptive actions. I'd also appreciate it if this wasn't discussed further at this time.

This is just not appropriate.

"Well, back in 1912 this user wrote "fuck miraheze" on their userpage, so I'll never trust them at all and I will always remind them of their past".

As we all know, people are just unchanging objects, and it's perfectly appropriate to always hunt them by reminding them of their past, no matter how much time has passed. After all, no one deserves chances, they all deserve to forever be reminded of their mistakes and never be able to break free from them.

I guarantee whatever Amanda did back then is nowhere near bad enough to still talk about it to this day. What, did they kill a person? I'm sure not.

While we wait, it might be worth looking at some open tasks and seeing if you can begin to make contributions to the git repositories in the form of pull requests? Might make an approval process easier if recent work is demonstrated that can be approved and merged in

Given their history (around April-May 2017) I would rather not trust this user at all. (And no, I will not change my mind no matter what you say, so you can skip all your excuses.)

I wish you good luck @AmandaCath. Just a little thing, you'll very likely need to sign an NDA (https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Board/NDAs) if you haven't already. Or maybe not, given that you'll likely only have github access as a Software Engineer. I'd email the board just in case.
