17:43:36@freephile:matrix.orgfreephile Thanks hexmode
17:48:30* @hexmode:matrix.orghexmode tips fedora
19:24:42@freephile:matrix.orgfreephileDoes anyone know why update.php would fail with 'Missing rc_timestamp field of recentchanges table. Should not happen.' (from line 459 of '/opt/htdocs/mediawiki/includes/installer/MysqlUpdater.php') when in fact the rc_timestamp field IS there?
19:32:00@freephile:matrix.orgfreephiledoIndexUpdate is the method, and it's a schema check for v1.2
20:02:32@freephile:matrix.orgfreephileA. it can happen if you have an incorrect value for wgDBprefix

23:36:20@hexmode:matrix.orghexmodewikiapiary is alive-ish
23:40:32@freephile:matrix.orgfreephilethanks for your work on it
23:40:51@hexmode:matrix.orghexmodeI've done nothing so far
23:41:01@hexmode:matrix.orghexmodejust noticed it was up
23:41:11@freephile:matrix.orgfreephilethe best kind of work ;-)
23:43:13@hexmode:matrix.orghexmodedoes anyone know if ElasticSearch 1.7.x is supposed to work with MW 1.27?
23:51:23@hexmode:matrix.orghexmodeaparently, yes

03:06:27@jamesmontalvo3:matrix.orgjamesmontalvo3I seem to recall using 1.5 when pre-1.28, but that could have changed
03:09:07@jamesmontalvo3:matrix.orgjamesmontalvo31.6 is what the mostly-unsupported 27.x branch of Meza uses: https://github.com/enterprisemediawiki/meza/blob/27.x/config/core/defaults.yml#L145
17:01:14@gharbeia:matrix.org@gharbeia:matrix.orgDo we, as a species, know if anyone at all has succefully understood how MIME detection works in MW?
18:05:59@gharbeia:matrix.org@gharbeia:matrix.orgMore specifically: there are loads of deprecated code and hackery of the spaghetti type.
18:07:17@gharbeia:matrix.org@gharbeia:matrix.orgFor example: Are there any known precedents of the use of the detection overriding mechanism using $guessCallback and $extCallback defined in MimeAnalyzer?
19:25:40@gharbeia:matrix.org@gharbeia:matrix.orgWe're basically trying to build this: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CBxHandler
19:30:27@bryandamon:matrix.orgbryandamonI think someone from NASA (maybe @kfield:matrix.org?) was working on a way to get other file type (Excel, Word, etc.) to show with a graphic (similar to how pdfs do now) through MIME detection?

our problem is mainly trying to egt MW to recognise a mime type such as application/vnd.comicbook+zip instead of application/zip, overriding its hackish system and its many hardcoded assumptions and special cases. The code is annotated with notes acknowledging its shortcomes and areas to be deprecated. But it's scary.

00:59:57@jamesmontalvo3:matrix.orgjamesmontalvo3 Kfield and I have dealt with some mime issues. Ask me again on Tuesday.

03:33:07@tgr:matrix.orgtgrso apparently not

Thanks! @uwe_a:matrix.org, you may want to talk to @jamesmontalvo3:matrix.org

Yeah. There is some code in there to make detecting these common MIMEs working. It's still hackish, but working, apparently. So NASA's task is easier than ours. (pun embedded)

so apparently not
I wish there was relief in despair.
