I aggree with Merlin. I was very unhappy with git, was frustrated, angry and hated that damned shit git and finally was going to give up developing furthermore. Then I found some ways to use git/gerrit system on my windows (which is a mix of tortoisegit and git bash) and it is ok for me now. And I do not want to miss these advantages of new developers, a better code review before committing it and at least it is much more easy to merge submitted patches compared with the old patch tracker system.
I use SVN for my bots too and git for development only. I found SVN easier to use for me (with tortoiseSVN on windows OS) and to update externals and to merge local files.

Good evening, everyone!
I am working on a proxy block bot for ru.wikipedia at the moment but I
don't want to invent bicycle twice :)
As I remember there is no script in framework that can be used as a

Maybe someone has similar workings and is ready to share them? Otherwise I
will switch to my own work on it...
Bugzilla sends e-mails with "new" in subject when a bugreport is created,
and the later mails without it.
That means, threads are dissolved in my mailbox, and it is hard to keep
Can we somehow make Bugzilla to keep threads integrated?
scripts in PWB are under MIT license. I have never read it, I am not so
deeply interested. :-)
Now, if I first publish a new script in Wikipedia, it gets under
