Git user issues[edit]

Trying to squash these bugs based on both and this morning's git / gerrit tutorial ( has led to lots of conflict messages that I have no idea how to resolve.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by KevinCole (talkcontribs) 21:46, 10 July 2012

For newbies such as myself, the answer: The laptop setup suggests making a stable branch from the clone. However to work with the bugs listed on this page, one should switch back to the master via check out. So, the sequence is:

git clone wiki
cd wiki/
git checkout origin/REL1_19 -b mywiki
git checkout master
git pull origin master

Thanks, Asheesh

Potential improvements to this page[edit]

Kiwix mentioned to 1) Make instructions a separate page, less duplication of content with "How to become a MediaWiki hacker"; 2) make the areas boxes; 3) use MediaWiki extension BugzillaReports to show some lists of tickets directly embedded. --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 15:32, 3 July 2014 (UTC)


The verb "open" in the link labels is rather ambiguous. I naturally expected a report form. Is there something wrong with saying "List" (or "List of")? Nemo 15:57, 22 May 2016 (UTC)

About "phabricator Bug Report List" links[edit]

There is lot of phabricator links about "bug Report list" in this article. Each time, it is written that concerns bug reports and Enhancement requests. But I don't know how to see if in the list this is a bug or an Enhancement request. Is there a way to filter/switch between bug and Enhancement requests to improve lisibility and searches in phabricator ? Manta Ray DeeJay (talk) 10:05, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Sadly not, due to deficiencies in our Phabricator install. See phabricator:T102#11218. Nemo 10:08, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
@Manta Ray DeeJay: There is not, and I wonder why it would be relevant. Could you explain why exactly you care whether an easy task is about fixing a bug versus about adding some functionality? --AKlapper (WMF) (talk) 10:21, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
@AKlapper (WMF): I don't want to talk only for easy tasks but in a general way. I think working on a bug or an Enhancement request is quite different. I think it could be nice having a filter to select it. Manta Ray DeeJay (talk) 10:44, 16 June 2016 (UTC)
