I'll be open to you: I am very disappointed that it took about 4 month from the first report and 5 reports in all until somebody cared about the HTTP 404 error in the VisualEditor (T230272). 2000 edits per day is not something less and if @KewGardens613, I and my triaging on T224384 (the first one) had been taken seriously, a lot could have been avoided. I thought about that a day. I see four options to improve that (at least errors in VE and SE):
- Take reports seriously (will not work, worked never)
- Use AI to detect suspicious logs on critical segments of mediawiki (must be collected, sorted and be reviewed)
- Provide a button to send an anonymus crash report (must be collected, sorted and be reviewed, similar to the AI-option)
- Provide more information than just "HTTP 404" as error. A line of a script, a function that returned an error or something else that can be used in phab)
What can be done to avoid repetition? And we need further measures, as the current ones are not sufficient.
