mediawiki/extensions/BlueSpiceUserSidebar itspiderman990123 Merge review Revive old extension that adds another panel in sidebar, which is user-specific and user-definable. Request: Could you please sign this request while logged-in? Thanks. MarcoAurelio (talk) 20:28, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Signed, --ItSpiderman (talk) 13:38, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

As you say "revive" ... I tried to find the project in our Gerrit, but cannot find it (neither as BlueSpiceUserSidebar, nor UserSidebar nor archived). So I wondered whether this code really lived in Gerrit at some point? Would creating an empty BlueSpiceUserSidebar repo do the trick for you, so you could upload whatever code you have? --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 10:11, 13 July 2018 (UTC)

This extension used to live inside BlueSpiceExtensions repo on gerrit, now we have new code for it located in other source, so empty repo would be great. Sorry for not making it clear first time aroung. --ItSpiderman (talk) 07:29, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

YesY Done Thanks for clarifying! Created as mediawiki/extensions/BlueSpiceUserSidebar. The repo is fully empty to ease your importing. --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 22:28, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

CreatedPagesList edwardspec Merge review Please import from YesY Done. Created as mediawiki/extensions/CreatedPagesList. No import performed, but your gerrit user should be able to do so now. MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:58, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
jsdoc-wmf-theme C. Scott Ananian Merge review Import from I'm not too sure where to put this in our gerrit's hierarchy. I guess this would be a top-level project? Or would you prefer to see it somewhere else? (Also, the request was anonymous. Could you please confirm when logged in, so we can avoid someone else requesting the repo in your name.) --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 22:34, 15 July 2018 (UTC)
Maybe use jsdoc/wmf-theme in gerrit? That will allow for future jsdoc modules/plugins if (as seems likely) we end up adopting jsdoc as our primary doc tool for JavaScript. Thanks! Signed: cscott (talk) 15:11, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

YesY Done Thanks for the hint on maybe adopting jsdoc more! Created as jsdoc/wmf-theme --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 22:48, 19 July 2018 (UTC)

mediawiki/extensions/NativeSvgHandler Paladox Merge review (preferred) Please import I think I remember QChrisNonWMF speak once about avoid creating "unfriendly forks" for code that we don't own? MarcoAurelio (talk) 17:39, 14 August 2018 (UTC)
Yes, avoiding unfriendly forks is still a thing and also the need for a maintainer in our gerrit. @Paladox:, did you reach out to the p12tic about bringing the code to our gerrit? Also, the extension has not seen commit in 2 years and has open issues and pull requests. Paladox, would you maintain the extension? --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 23:08, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
N Not done I have contacted the maintainer and he said that even though he has not been active, he will resolve the issues. Therefore, (after speaking with Paladox) I believe this request can be closed as not done. Reception123 (talk) 12:51, 22 August 2018 (UTC)

YesY Done Created as mediawiki/extensions/ChangeUserPasswords --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 22:54, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
graphql dbarratt Merge review I'm not sure how this would be namespaced? We're working on creating a GraphQL query service that will wrap all of wikimedia's APIs (Action API, REST API, Wikibase Special Entity API, Wikidata's SPARQL, etc.) on a single endpoint. See task T173214. Ideally this query service will be availble at and if it gets enough usage, moved onto production at something like Please import the existing code from tools-tptools (but leave this repo alone as it belongs to another user) YesY Done Since it'll run in initially, I guess treating it as such initially would do the trick. If it (hopefully) gets enough usage and gets promoted to, we'll update the project accordingly. Created as labs/tools/graphql (for now) --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 23:06, 23 August 2018 (UTC)
mediawiki/services/poolcounter legoktm, Platonides, Tim Starling Merge review T201223: I want to do an import out of mediawiki/extensions/PoolCounter's daemon/ directory (with history, I think using git-filter-branch). So empty unless it's straightforward for you to do that kind of an import? Thanks! Legoktm (talk) 22:14, 23 August 2018 (UTC) YesY Done Created as mediawiki/services/poolcounter and imported the code --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 23:21, 23 August 2018 (UTC)

wmcz-Tracker Urbanecm Merge review Please import I'm not sure where to best put this in our gerrit hierarchy. Do you have a preference? Maybe have a new wikimedia-cz root project and use something like wikimedia-cz/wmcz-Tracker or wikimedia-cz/teh-tracker? --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 22:00, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

Calling this wikimedia-cz/tracker looks like good idea. The wmcz- prefix was choosen only because I do not want use generic English word to call a Gerrit repository, the app itself is called just Tracker. With one root project, would it be possible to have one Gerrit group allowing everyone in it to excersize project owner privileges on everything under wikimedia-cz/*? --Martin Urbanec (talk) 04:59, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

YesY Done Created as wikimedia-cz/tracker --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 22:43, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

mediawiki/extensions/NotesLink pwirth Merge review The mediawiki extension "NotesLink" occoured in different forms in some old custom wikis. Unfortunately i could not find any information about a repo or the author of this code. So i would like to add an updated version to gerrit. YesY Done Created as mediawiki/extensions/NotesLink As it looks like you have code that you want to push, I created the repo fully empty. If you instead want me to push code for you (I could not find anything about a NotesLink extension in our legacy SVN repo) or want me to upload a .gitreview file for you, let me know. --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 08:16, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

labs/tools/map-of-monuments Urbanecm Merge review Please import Created as labs/tools/map-of-monuments But since you have a Phabricator repo already, would you like to make Gerrit sync to that already existing Phabricator repo, or would you prefer to nuke that already existing Phabricator repo and get a fresh Phabricator repo that matches the naming of other labs/tools/... projects? --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 07:36, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

If it is possible to nuke a repo, please do it. Thanks! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 07:38, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

@Martin Urbanec: Deleting a Phabricator repository is possible, but only Andre or Mukunda can do it via a CLI. Deleting a Gerrit repo is possible withouth much issues. Which one would you like to delete? MarcoAurelio (talk) 09:04, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

As you can see, I already have a Phabricator repository created via toolsadmin. I decided to switch to Gerrit. As Gerrit repositories are usually mirrored to Phab, I was asked if I want to have the repo mirrored to the current Phab repository or to new one. I replied that if nuking Phab repo is possible, then the current Phab repo should be nuked and new one under standard naming created.

When thinking about it, cannot we just rename the current repo to standard naming and reuse it?

Anyway, I'm keeping the final decision on those with power to do it. I'll be fine with both settings. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 09:28, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

Renaming Phabricator repositories is possible, indeed. And it is also possible to configure the Phab repo to now watch from a different source. I can assist with that. Let me know. Regards, MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:35, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

YesY Done I have managed to do it. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 13:19, 18 September 2018 (UTC)

operations/software/thumbor-plugins gilles Merge review Please import Not sure about how to best name this repo. Will there be further thumbor repos soon? If not, maybe the plugins repo would better fit elsewhere? Maybe mediawiki/services/... but then again, it's "just" plugins and not a full service. Maybe operations/software/thumbor-plugins (like much other software we run)? But if you prefer thumbor/plugins, I'm happy to go with that too. --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 07:49, 24 September 2018 (UTC)

operations/software/thumbor-plugins is fine by me GDubuc (WMF) (talk) 05:31, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

YesY Done Created as operations/software/thumbor-plugins I've set up GitHub replication, but as there is already a Phabricator repo, I did not mess with Phabricator to avoid stepping on your toes. If you want me to set up Phabricator replication for you, just let me know. --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 22:58, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
