Since we are making good progress on Map Improvements 2018, it seems worthwhile and safe to release mapframe to most of the Wikipedias that don't currently have it. We will consult these wikipedias, allowing any which have an issue with this plan to opt out of the implementation.
Flagged Revisions can cause problems with mapframe. Our investigations into this issue T151665 have determined that there are various flavors of Flagged Revisions. One style ( $wgFlaggedRevsOverride = false) still shows users the most recent edit; this does not cause problems. The other style, best known for being the style used on German Wikipedia, hides the latest version of an article until the edit has been reviewed and approved ( $wgFlaggedRevsOverride = true). This style causes problems and will be omitted from the mapframe general release.
Which wikis WILL get mapframe?
- All Wikipedias which do NOT use Flagged Revisions.
- Wikipedias which have Flagged Revs, but which show the latest version of a page by default ( $wgFlaggedRevsOverride = false):
- Ckb—Central Kurdish
- En— English
Which wikis WILL NOT get mapframe in this release?
- Zh_classicalwiki—Classical Chinese
