Bug ID: 59941
Summary: Flow: in default config posts don't appear
Product: MediaWiki extensions
CC: ebernhard...@wikimedia.org, oke...@wikimedia.org,

If you add Flow to MediaWiki-Vagrant, and do no other configuration, you can
add topics and posts, but when you later redisplay a topic, e.g. click its
permalink icon, you don't see any of its posts! Shahyar, wctaiwan and I all
The post does show up in the topic history and the post text is in the
flow_revision table, so this is probably a caching issue. Setting
$wgFlowUseMemcache = false fixes it (I think it makes Flow use HashBagOStuff).
So maybe false should be Flow's default, and overridden by a WMF wmf-config
Another wrinkle is MediaWiki-Vagrant does enable a cache, but it is
$wgMainCacheType = 'redis'. So $wgFlowUseMemcache = true should work, since it
makes Flow use $wgMemc that ends up being RedisBagOStuff. I'm not sure why
Maybe Flow should be flexible and have a $wgFlowCacheType that defaults to
CACHE_ANYTHING or CACHE_MEMCACHE, the way system caches like $wgParserCache do.
Or it could use $wgMemc all the time, since that misnamed function always does
something: it'll use MemcachedPhpBagOStuff or RedisBagOStuff if they're
configured, otherwise it falls back to EmptyBagOStuff (dummy cache).
