Description Magnus animum 2007-08-17 22:06:26 UTC
I was recently renamed on en.wikipedia from "Magnus animum" to "Animum". ~3 hours afterward, I noticed *none* of my contribs had been migrated; in fact, it was at ~6:00 AM EDT that ~1000 *were* migrated. I dunno if a dev with root/shell access needs to manually migrate them, if it has something to do with the job queue (yes, robchurch, more job queue paranoia :-)), or if it is a really severe Renameuser problem. Any suggestions/possible fixes?

Have any other users had this?

Gah, checking the logs, I see that the last 10 are not going through either.

Umm...has anyone noticed the job queue has been over a million since a slave crashed a few days ago? Name changes are pretty low on queue priority, so you'll probably be waiting a while. Check [[w:en:Special:Statistics]]

Yes, indeed. You possibly may be looking at quite a while. There may be a possibility of speeding it up though.

I don't think renames have anything to do with the job queue...

I renamed Magnus animum on Meta yesterday, and the contributions didn't change straightaway either.
Comment 7 Rob Church 2007-08-17 22:35:24 UTC
RenameUser shouldn't be putting updates for the `revision` table into the job queue; this strikes me as madness; the table should be indexed well enough that the updates can be done along with the `user` update.

This will now require the attention of a shell user (to do a one-off job queue run for the English Wikipedia), and I suggest altering the current, paranoid job queue use in the extension.

Should someone contact brion/starling/avar, or will they know about this bug quickly w/o being emailed (since a lot of devs seem to...)?

There's a mailing list and a live feed we can get. :-)  But if you really feel they need to know and would be able to fix it, go ahead and contact them (probably best on IRC).

They were already contacted via those means.

I've reset the job queue runners, they were hanging after the master switches. enwiki's queue lenght is slowly decreasing.
