So, in my case this turned out to be a well-known issue with git --mirror and the way pull-requests/branches are set up. I was able to clean up the issue for my purposes with this one-liner in the bare repository:

I'm seeing this currently on our brand-new phabricator install. git push --mirror worked for the first repository installed, but now on the second, this is happening.

michaeloa added a comment to T8442: Build Space switching UI.

Some feedback from our Phabricator instance. At the moment, the way we have been testing usage of Spaces is:

  • S 1: Public (Default). Our open-source projects go there.
  • S 2: Internal. Visible only to employees. For this, we would really, really like some way to batch assign/add users to a Policy/Space, as discussed in T9780 and T4103#145539. Handling this manually quickly becomes impractical with large numbers of employees.
  • S 3+: Long-running special interest projects. They do exist, and they tend to value their privacy.

It's your call, of course, though I don't really see how adding tooltips to the top UI bar is more disruptive than all of the other places that you have tooltips - e.g., the edit box in which I'm writing this as well as pretty much everything item the default dashboards. I also note that in almost every other part of the UI where you use icons, Phabricator is pretty exemplary in either having tooltips or an explanatory text next to the icon, so it just seems like an odd omission to me not to have it in the top UI.

I wouldn't say i'm "significantly opposed" to width-limited/centered content, but I don't like the notion. I want to be able to set the width of the content to whatever I want, and the browser window lets me do that on the fly.
Philosophically, deciding that I only get 800 pixels or whatever makes your (The designer's) life easier, at the expense of limiting the user's choices, and that something I dislike.

  • Aware of this. It was still very useful to have the ability to quickly get an overview of the most important tasks in a project (since those are the ones a developer is most likely to be working on). I prefer using workboards myself (so the new default works well for me), but not all users/projects do.
  • Task creation from the dropdown is not context sensitive, the way the create task shortcut in the projects was. The most common Phabricator usage error I've observed so far is people forgetting to assign projects to their tasks (often resulting in those tasks "disappearing").

Agree with @bajb. I feel the problem is that Projects are a bit of a catch-all app at the moment. There aren't really any other alternatives for organizing users, tasks, etc., so it's easy to end up with a lot of different things crammed under the Projects umbrella. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as the concept seems flexible enough to handle it, but it does require a bit of flexibility if that is the case.

@btrahan: Government (in this case, MET Norway). Our IT department needs to deal with everything from purchasing super-computers over development to customer support, so we end up with many different kinds of project teams. And although the development department is the primary force driving for adoption of Phabricator, we need to keep in mind the needs of the entire IT organization. If the developers end up using Phabricator as a project/task management tool, we don't want the infrastructure unit using a completely different task management tool covering almost the exact same functionality. That way lies maintenance hell.
