2017 wikitext editor emits many ready events with platform "other"
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

There is no "other" platform, so this shouldn't happen. This has persisted even after we fixed T203618, so it has a different cause.

select
    left(timestamp, 8) as day,
    count(*) as events
from log.Edit_17541122
where
    event_editor = "wikitext-2017" and
    event_action = "ready" and
    event_platform = "other" and
    timestamp >= "20180911"
group by left(timestamp, 8)

I'd suspect this is going to be T205241, which @Esanders just put up a patch for.

Yup. When this has dropped to zero we should change that warning to an exception, but also force logging when in debug mode so devs can actually spot the errors.
