Setup EditorJourney for Arabic Wikipedia
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We are ready to deploy EditorJourney for Arabic Wikipedia. The sensitive namespaces should be 0, 1, 6, 7, 100, 101.

  • Identify sensitive namespaces
  • Deploy to Arabic Wikipedia (for all newcomers, for their first 24 hours)
  • Validate that incoming data is correct, that the right namespaces are being obfuscated, and that logging stops after 24 hours (@nettrom_WMF)

Confirmed with @alanajjar , Namespaces in Arabic Wikipedia should be 0, 1, 6, 7. No additional namespaces.

@Dyolf77_WMF -- I added namespaces 100 and 101 to the list. Those are the Portal and Portal Talk namespaces. They are somewhat like reading behavior, so I think we should obscure them as well.

This is now ready to be developed and put onto the team's sprint board when there is space. We would like to deploy this during the week of July 1.

Assigning to @nettrom_WMF to QA

I've examined the data, and we do not have any events stored beyond 24 hours after user registration, and obfuscation appears to be working correctly. Data also appears to be flowing in, and for example distribution of user actions is similar to other wikis. Don't see a reason to not close this.
