Monday August 29[edit]

  • Mostly worked on HTTPS: made WMF-deployed extensions protocol-relative-URL-proof. Core had been done last week (r95651, r95652, r95653, r95656, r95659, r95663)
  • Tried to debug segmentation faults on the cluster by configuring Apache to produce core dumps. Hit a few snags and eventually gave up, because I couldn't get it to work properly and didn't feel like spending more time on it. Details in server admin log
  • Fixed extension breakage caused by my fix for bug 29246 (r95674)
  • Wrote up draft presentation proposal for WCN 2011, agreed to discuss with Timo on Tuesday
  • Guided Neil through the UploadWizard / Wiki Loves Monuments deployment
  • Deployed Narayam bug fixes

    • Created Gadget definition: namespace and made the gadget table mirror the contents of pages in that namespace (r957694, r95768, r95786, r95787)
    • Added the ability for extensions to make pages immovable to MediaWiki core, needed for the Gadget definition: namespace (r95753, r95756)
    • Other RL2 backend work (r95740, r95747, r95749, r95750, r95751)
    • Submitted WCN proposal after Timo signed off on it

Wednesday August 31[edit]

  • Received e-mail from Alolita asking me to write these reports, reverse-engineered reports for Monday and Tuesday

  • Reviewed and tested Timo's RL2 commits from yesterday
  • Disabled statistics generation for the account creation improvement project because Lennart said he didn't need them any more
  • Random bits of code review: r95586, r95605, r95582, r95631, r79941, r95714, r95573, r95578, r95572 (that last one was huge)
  • UploadWizard bugfix review and deployment
  • WikimediaIncubator fixes deployment

  • MoodBar deployment
  • Debugged issue with Arabic translation in UploadWizard not updating
    • Tracked it down to LocalisationUpdate
    • Fixed error that caused LU to never update messages for LiquidThreads, was a bug but not causing the one I was looking for
    • Fixed permissions issues that occurred when running LU by hand
    • Filed RT ticket about permissions issues (RT #1406)
    • Agreed with Ryan that I would fix some parts of the LU setup on Friday, then document everything in RT so he can puppetize it
