Is there a complete list of Wikimedia fork differences from the upstream Phabricator? If it is, I'd like to see it.

Wikimedia Phabricator fork differences from upstream
Uploading .gif file issue
Hello! I am trying to upload a gif in a phabricator task comment and receiving an error.
- I click on the upload icon
- I select my gif file (5,2MB)
- It starts uploading with the percentage reaching 100%
- Then it shows the following message:
Exception: No configured storage engine can store this file. See "Configuring File Storage" in the documentation for information on configuring storage engines.
Here is a link to a screenshot.
Hi, 5.2MB is too large, and the error message is very misleading. See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T155130
Hi, thanks for the link! For future reference, is the filesize limit 4MB as indicated at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T155130#4696598 ?
Intended name not supported by the system. Request withdrawn and marked as resolved.
Hello. Following the return of my use of the most established username, I would like to rename myself in Phabricator to be in consistent with my unified account. Therefore:
Please rename the user "Vg_thWIKI" to "G(x)"
Thank you for your help.
Hi, your preferred name is not supported by Phabricator: Usernames must contain only numbers, Latin letters, period, underscore and hyphen, and can not end with a period. They must have no more than 64 characters. Spaces should be replaced with an underscore (_).
A small language related doubt
I have recently posted a comment in one of the tasks in phab. In the task T220272, i searched for getting some thumbs up like symbol. But unfortunately I ended up with memes. I actually doesn't know what memes is. Now comes my real doubt. Please reproduce the following steps:
1)Just click on the last icon named meme which is present in the toolbar of adding comments in a task.
2)Now, you will be able to see a box with three fields. My doubt is, why does the translation of the text Llama Diorama not happening even when I have selected my language as English (United States).
Because "Llama Diorama" is the string in English. :) Memes are not to be taken very seriously.
If you for some reason are looking for a thumbs-up symbol, "Award token" might be what you're looking for.
AphrontCountQueryException on Profile Page
Hi, my profile (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/RheingoldRiver/) currently looks like this: https://puu.sh/BriD2.png. I think it's because I have two external accounts linked because I temporarily didn't have access to this login at the time I made the account. When I searched the bug it seemed like an administrator would have to fix that for me, is this the right place to ask for help? Or if not, where should I? Thanks!
That looks like https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T75720. Assuming that you can log into Phab, could you file a ticket on phabricator.wikimedia.org in the Phabricator project and mention T75720? Thanks!
Done, hopefully I put it in the right place. Thanks!
I think I may have done this in the wrong place, can you link me to the right place to open this as an issue?
How to report a bug explains what to do
Okay, tried again. Sorry for the trouble, and thanks!
Hi, just wanted to follow up on this again, sorry for the hassle - the ticket is here (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T205817) is it possible to fix? Thanks!
Question about phabricator display skin
Hello (even a sysop need help xD), i try to find where i can make proposal for actual skin on Phabricator, actually i using dark mode and it's sooooooo buged with color. Thanks
@Tomybrz "Dark Mode" explicitly says that it is "experimental". See https://discourse.phabricator-community.org/t/guide-reporting-a-bug/938 how to report issues to the upstream Phabricator community.
Request for name change in Phabricator
Hello, I request my Phabricator account from Wiki-1776 to Hispano76
Hi, https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/p/Wiki-1776/ is linked to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Wiki-1776 but this request comes from https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/User:Hispano76 so how to verify? :)
Is it allowed to talk non-wikipedia development topic in Phabricator?
We (Moegirlpedia) would like to use Phabricator to track our MediaWiki development progress. But not all the needs related to Mediawiki/Wikipeida.
Jira is a good choice for software development too, but it's private oriented design and price are problem.
Can we use Phabricator to track non-Wikipedia development project?
The Wikimedia instance of Phabricator is meant for any Wikimedia-related activity so I'm afraid this is out of scope. Though I am curious what "your MW development process" implies - would that be relevant to upstream?
Maybe I misunderstood - if this is not about tracking all your tasks in a dedicated project but about tagging some tasks of interest for you, then this is totally fine. Is this the same as phab:T215688 ?
Why Herald is now restricted app?
It always has been. The potential for abuse is very high, and "normal" use slows down the system for every other user, so needs to be limited.
What are story points?
See Team Practices Group/Glossary#Story points and note the caution in Phabricator/February 2016 upgrade#What will our norms be around Story Points on all tasks? about trying to understand them outwith the context of their project.
