Add zhwiki to WikiWho
Open, Needs TriagePublic3 Estimated Story Points


Now that we have more disk space (T332630), we're trying to get as many of the top language Wikipedias added to WikiWho as possible. We'll want to do a quick test to ensure the Chinese logograms are treated correctly by the algorithm, but I expect they will be.

Acceptance criteria

  • Download XML dump
  • Merge code to add zh language to WikiWho
  • Start processing the dump
  • Merge code to add zhwiki to EventStreams listener and restart services
  • Update Who-Wrote-That and XTools clients

WikiWho uses the Django framework, which has a built-in i18n library. That unfortunately does not support zh without a locale. We'll need to manually add the language code, something similar to I tried doing this without success, so in the interest of time, we may need to hold off on adding Chinese until after we move to the new VM.
