MediaWiki Update

Hi all,

I just updated our MediaWiki setup from version 1.22 to 1.24. (fiinally!) Besides the upstream changes we have a skin following the new upstream file structure and I also installed a cron job to regulary invalidate cached pages.

Let me know of any issues.

Greetings,

Pierre

Re: MediaWiki Update

Thank you Pierre! I've fixed some resulting style bugs in MediaWiki:Archlinux.css. By the way, are you interested to continue the discussion in FS#38769 or do you just want to close it?

Last thing, https://projects.archlinux.org/ says "No repositories found", but you probably already know it smile

Re: MediaWiki Update

The patch in question was applied. No idea what happened to the cgit. In the meantime you may see the applied changes at https://projects.archlinux.de/vhosts/wi … x.org.git/

If the css needs fixing it would probably better to apply them directly and put them into version controll.

Re: MediaWiki Update

I see, I'll try to prepare another patch. The revisions of the additional css are anyway already visible through https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?ti … on=history for those interested.

Re: MediaWiki Update

Nice to see 1.24 on ArchWiki, thanks!

However, there is something strange happening to Special:ActiveUsers. When I first visited it after the update, the list was empty, so I reloaded the page - nothing, reloaded again - about 5 users appeared, again and again... The number of users in the list was slowly increasing, currently being about 90 and still rising, but this is not enough as it should be almost 500.

You can run the following command to get the current count:

curl -s "https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php?title=Special:ActiveUsers&offset=&limit=500" | grep -ow "<li>" | wc -w

Some maintenance script which has not been run after the update might solve this. We could as well just wait for a month until the "hidden" entries are invalidated, but there could be some other Special: page out-of-sync as well.

Re: MediaWiki Update

The Special:ActiveUsers issue is more serious and unpredictable than I thought: a while ago it showed only two users and none of them were the most recently active users according to the recent changes page.

Re: MediaWiki Update

I've found http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgMiserMode but I'm not sure if that's the cause. According to http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Meta#siteinfo_.2F_si "misermode" should appear in https://wiki.archlinux.org/api.php?acti … op=general but it doesn't.
I've also discovered that we're not the only ones affected by this, compare http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Special:RecentChanges and http://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Special:ActiveUsers
Who finds some time first should probably ask upstream for support.

I've just posted this to the mediawiki-l list (no idea if that's the right one): https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/m … 43850.html
