Status? Do we really want to fix this?
Comment 3 Jeff Janes 2014-04-30 01:31:00 UTC
Regarding "Do we really want to fix this", is that a philosophical question or a pragmatic one?  Using select "table.*" seems like generally bad practice, and in this case should be easy enough to fix (provided that wl_notificationtimestamp is not actually used, which it seems not to be).  But will it turn into a never ending game of whack-a-mole?

> Status? Do we really want to fix this?

And who is "we"? Mobile team? Community? If mobile team wouldn't want to fix it, would it still accept and review contributed patches to fix this?
Comment 5 Jon 2014-05-01 15:52:40 UTC
It's an open question. We can be anyone. I don't know how much work is involved in this and I wasn't sure who cared about this and there has been no activity on the bug since it was opened a year ago. Now we have 2 comments so I suceeded in my goal )

At the risk of speaking for the WMF mobile team's product owner, this is not something the mobile team will work on - at least not in an organized/prioritized/etc way - any time soon (we may need to revisit this if/when mobile functionality gets moved to core). In the meantime, if anyones wants to pick this up and work on it otherwise, I think that would be swell - after all, MediaWiki core is compatible with Postgres (
