define redirect_only ; 2008 candidates (1.94 KB, patch)
2008-05-26 14:32 UTC, Katie Chan

Description Katie Chan 2008-05-26 14:32:55 UTC
Created attachment 4927 [details]
define redirect_only ; 2008 candidates

Please synchronize all Wikimedia Foundation wikis (both public & internal) with the latest Extension:BoardVote ready for the 2008 board election. The attached patch need to be applied first to ensure our wikis redirect to the external SPI's server where the vote will be conducted.
Comment 1 Raimond Spekking 2008-05-26 14:50:14 UTC
Patch applied with r35361.

All extensions are synced automatically with the WMF servers with the next 'scap'.

But I cannot see if $IP.'/BoardVoteInit.php' needs tweaking. So I will leave this bug open.
Comment 2 Katie Chan 2008-05-26 15:08:58 UTC
Reverted r35361 with r35362.

Those update (in particular, the define "BOARDVOTE_REDIRECT_ONLY" bit) is only needed on WMF server but not generically when the extension is installed. The external organisation SPI (where the vote will be conducted) for example will need to be installing (updating) this extension but do not need the extension with the patch applied.

This bug was open because I see the localisation have been updated presumingly when the servers was last scap'd, but not the redirect file, which mean incorrect messages are being displayed to non-logged in users for examples. This is presumingly because that particular file doesn't get synch.

If we can have this resolved before the election in 2 and a bit days, it would be helpful...
Comment 4 Katie Chan 2008-05-30 19:50:29 UTC
Now know that the patch is not required as relevant settings are in LocalSettings.php, but extension still need to be synch'd before election start.
Comment 5 Katie Chan 2008-05-30 21:38:24 UTC
Never mind. The reason the old messages were still showing up is because MediaWiki namespace messages were hiding the messages from the extension. Now onto getting someone to delete all the old messages.....
