Report (1): In w:ja:Special:Diff/79496531, the last line of the previous comment has one level of indentation, so the reply should have two levels instead of one?

The previous comment has irregular indentations (it starts with*, then #, and ends with :), so not sure if this can be handled correctly by Reply Tool though.

Report (2): Per phab:T252708 indentation is always done by :, but it does not explain the behavior in the following two diffs:

My opinion is that if we keep the behavior in T252708 then the first diff should have an indentation of *:.

Thanks for the reports, and sorry for the late response.

In (1), I think this happens because the reply tool treats the empty paragraph after the previous comment as a part of the second comment, and because of that it treats the second comment as if it was not indented. I think this is a bug; I filed T264116.

In (2), it looks like the page has been deleted, so I can't see the diffs any more :( but I am guessing it's a similar situation.

In general, when checking the indentation level of a comment (which affects the indentation level of new replies), we check the whole comment rather than only the last line. Checking the last line caused wrong results for comments ending with a bulleted list (T252702).

Thanks, indeed.
