Enable description usage tracking on further wikis
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I suggest to also enable description usage tracking on further wikis. Currently we don't have a single description usage, even though the usage type is active on several wikis.

After some mwgreping for wikis which potentially use descriptions, I identified the following wikis:

  • dewiki
  • hewiki
  • lvwiki
  • mediawikiwiki
  • metawiki
  • nnwiki
  • nowiki
  • ruwikinews
  • zhwiki

Also I suggest ruwiki: It has so many usages that there just have to be some description usages (you would think…).

That is fine by me - let's leave ruwiki aside for now while we finish purging up its recentchanges table (T177772) on all the pending hosts.
Please keep giving us a heads up on the irc channel before you enable it on those new wikis.

Deployment scheduled for Monday (Oct 23) 13:00–14:00 UTC.

Note: We still don't have a single usage from the current set of wikis… so I expect this to also not have much of an impact (if any).

I just moved the deploy from 13:00–14:00 UTC today to 12:00–13:00 UTC, as that fits my schedule better and allows me to do more monitoring of the changes and their impact.

Sounds good, thanks for the heads up!
