Request for a Dutch version of labs
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

Author: Woudloper

Description:
At the Dutch Wikipedia project a discussion is held ([http://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overleg_Wikipedia:Nagelopen_versies#Testwiki here]) about introducing flagged revisions. To show how this works I would like to request a Dutch labs (like [http://en.labs.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page en.labs]) is set up where we can have our own demo version.

Of course people can experiment now with the English demo, but it would be more user friendly to have it in Dutch. Just using the translated interface simply does not do the thing.

Kind regards, ~~~~

Clearification: the request is, to have a nl.labs wiki with a demo. The demo mimicks the situation on the Dutch wikipedia (including patrolled revisions), plus it has flagged revisions on.

And it would be nice if one or more Dutch Wikipedia users gets permission to change the settings of the extenion (see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:FlaggedRevs ) during the tests, so we will not have to ask here for settings changes (which probably is needed regularly). I hope this is possible, this could make the tests much faster and easier.

Configuration changes require shell access & as such won't be given out to users.

Why don't you create test wiki for instance on toolserv? On your own wiki you would can faster changing configuration.

Creating a test wiki on the toolserver is not allowed (see
https://wiki.toolserver.org/view/Rules and
http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/toolserver-l/2005-December/000086.html )

I meant some outside server controlled by the community. For example Polish community tested FlaggedRevs on own local toolserver, where immediately could customize the configuration of FlaggedRevs in contrast to WMF wikis, where the access to customization is highly limited.

Adding Brion to CC to let us know whether this is going to happen or not.

This bug is open for about 9 months now, is there something happening with this request?

Instead of a labs wiki, a prototype wiki could be used for FlaggedRevs testing.

I searched around and this is my closest find for a prototype wiki[1], but I don't see FlaggedRevs installed though.

Use labs, much saner way forward

And for experimental setups, it's now possible to request and setup an instance in any way you please. https://labsconsole.wikimedia.org/wiki/Main_Page
