I'm not familiar with bluejeans and maybe have missed a transition
because I wasn't paying enough attention. is this some kind of
experiment? have all meetings transitioned to this service?
anyway, my immediate question at the moment is how do you join without
sharing your microphone and camera?
am I correct thinking that this is an entirely proprietary stack
that's neither gratis nor libre and has no on-premise (not cloud)
hosting option? are we paying for this?
can someone to update list https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/P10500 which
contains repositories which haven't mediawiki/mediawiki-codesniffer.
I found in list that much repositories are empty, and repositories which
aren't available on Gerrit.
So, can someone please update this list of repositories (in
mediawiki/extensions) which haven't mediawiki/mediawiki-codesniffer, but at
least, contains one PHP file. or to provide me command with which I can
update list when I want, so I don't need to request it every time.
P. S.: Happy weekend! :)

As per the MediaWiki version lifecycle, I would like to announce the
formal end of life (EOL) of MediaWiki 1.34 as of today, Monday November 30,
This means that MediaWiki 1.34 will no longer receive maintenance or
security backports. It is therefore strongly discouraged that you continue
to use it.
It is recommended to upgrade to MediaWiki 1.35, the current Long Term
Support (LTS) version which is not due to become EOL until September 2023.
The legacy Long Term Support version of MediaWiki, MediaWiki 1.31, is older
and downgrading is not supported.
MediaWiki 1.35 bumps the required PHP version from 7.2.9 in 1.34 (which is
unsupported upstream), to PHP 7.3.19 or later.
This is the weekly TechCom board review in preparation of our meeting on
Wednesday. If there are additional topics for TechCom to review, please let
us know by replying to this email. However, please keep discussion about
individual RFCs to the Phabricator tickets.
Activity since Monday 2020-11-02 on the following boards:
- T268328: Automatically index extensions in Codesearch
- Daniel is raising that people effectively use Codesearch to guide
deprecation efforts under theStable Interface policy. As such, we should
define what inclusion criteria it has (or should have), and simply or
document how to implement that in practice through adding and removing
repositories from its index (esp those not hosted by Wikimedia).
- T267085 <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T267085>: Clarify
deprecation of method overrides
- A question about the stable interface policy.
Committee board activity:
- T175745 <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T175745>: Do not overwrite
edits when conflicting with self
- Some renewed interest on this question about how MW should handle
when e.g. someone starts editing the same page from multiple
tabs and then
submits those edits.
- T227776 <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T227776>: General
ParserCache service class
- Addshore asking for an update.
- T268326: RFC: Amendment to the Stable interface policy (Nov 2020)
- Proposal by Daniel, to:
- … fill some gaps (e.g. traits, and member fields).
- … allow for removal without (released) deprecation if it is
unused in code we know about and is considered "maintained".
- T266866 RFC <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T266866>: Bump Basic
browser support to require TLS 1.2 for MediaWiki core
- Ed lists which Web APIs and other browser capabilities would become
safe to use in the base layer (HTML/CSS), as well as some JS
will automatically become available to Grade A.
- Ed confirmed TLS 1.2 mapping to browser names/versions.
- Moved to Phase 3: Explore.
- T260330 RFC: PHP microservice for containerized shell
- Moved to Last Call last week, until 2 December (next week).
- Tim answered and added a section to clarify the backwards
compatible nature of the PHP interface in core, for third-parties that
would not or have not installed Shellbox.
- T259771: RFC: Drop support for database upgrade older than two LTS
- Last week's concerns about detection and failure prevention have
been answered by Amir.
- The Platform Engineering Team has filled the ownership gap for this
- Moved to Phase 4: Tune.
IRC meeting request:
- Later today (Wed 25 Nov), this RFC will be discussed in
#wikimedia-office on Freenode IRC:
RFC: Provide mechanism for configuration sets for development and tests
Other RFC activity:
- T263841 RFC <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T263841>: Expand API
title generator to support other generated data
- Rescoped from potential software change to policy update.
- Awaiting resourcing from core API steward to confirm support, risk,
compatibility as proposed.
- T250406 RFC: Hybrid extension management
- Conversation about what we would need to commit to for WMF
software, and seeking placing and approval of said resourcing.
- T119173: RFC: Discourage use of MySQL ENUM type
- Next step is for the consensus to be turned into concrete wording
for the policy.
- T40010: RFC: Re-evaluate librsvg as SVG renderer for WMF wikis
- Some general clarifications, and statistics from production.
