strlen() was used in Phabricator to check if a generic value is a non-empty string.
This behavior is deprecated since PHP 8.1. Phorge adopts phutil_nonempty_string() as a replacement.

Note: this may highlight other absurd input values that might be worth correcting
instead of just ignoring. If phutil_nonempty_string() throws an exception in your
instance, report it to Phorge to evaluate and fix that specific corner case.

Closes T15420

Test Plan

Applied these two changes; afterwards "Browse Repositories" overlay dialog gets rendered in web browser and lists existing repositories.

Thanks (again)

Indeed the Slug and the Callsign should be null or strings and nothing else.

The function phutil_nonempty_string() will report any alien type, and that is OK here.

I tested this with some fuzzy tests in Diffusion Callsign, without any nuclear implosion.



↑ This assumes all the parts as strings.
