Event Timeline

Unfortunately this ticket doesn't mention where these messages are originally specified? I fail to find this information on the parent ticket either. @Lena_WMDE, can you help?

Using the beta cluster as the only source won't work: It seems there is quite a bunch of unnecessary messages and redirects, and some possibly missing. Which messages are actually needed?

Sorry, I intended to fill in the messages myself but I see I've left an "attractive nuisance" of half-clues. The requirements are given in this private google doc, and last I checked there were some translations missing. We need German and English messages for both surveys. Please refer to the current demo article to check for default messages which might not have the prefix, and might have unusable default values on dewiki. Here's the configuration.

Thank you for picking this up!

Unfortunately I think the numbering for the answers of the second survey needs to be updated. They were published with a different numbering system than used in the doc. I can update it there too - but it should now be:


Also for the privacy policy link, still coordinating on what that should be but I think getting closer to an answer. When does it need to be finalized by?

This is an on-wiki message, so there's no technical constraint on how it's deployed. I.e., immediately before the survey goes live is fine from a technical perspective.

Borderline typo:

en: "3.6: Drop down menu for parameters with predefined inputs"

Should be, "drop-down menu".

I've copied the updated translations and numbering to beta dewiki.

Links are adjusted to reflect the content language workaround mentioned in T256200#6252208

@ecohen Privacy policy messages landed here, FYI.

Here's an archive created with Special:Export:

Note that this doesn't block deploying the survey configuration, we can use the embedding element as the final safety interlock.

Configuration is deployed now, so the survey will appear whenever the embed divs are created.

Looks perfect. I added the Prototype 3 injection point, all messages are present in English and German, for both surveys.
