@TerraCodes For 390188, it's ready to go. Please schedule it during a SWAT deployment window at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployments (and be at this moment on Freenode #wikimedia-operations.

Should the patch be merged before SWAT, or will it get merged during?

Nov 20th, 2017

@Dereckson Scheduled for Nov 20 moring SWAT, thanks for the ping~

Config changes are merged during the SWAT process: anything in this repo should be merged only just before deployed.

Nov 24th, 2017

@Dereckson I'd appreciate your assistance in T169450 verifying the steps to be taken. There are no docs in Wikitech for this that I could find. Thanks.

Hi @Urbanecm -- there's some discussion going on at T180426 with regards to EducationProgram at cs.wikipedia and some users requesting to turn it on again. Regards.

Nov 28th, 2017

Hello Dear Sir, Recently Some Hindi Wikiversitian and Education Programmer is thinking about Education Programme. Because This is part of Our Hindi User Group Activity. So What is the blocker for Deploying Extension:EducationProgramme. I Tested It my Local Machine. It is working Fine For me. Please Give The answer. Thanks In advance.

The desired direction for that extension is undeployment, not the reverse

Unfortunately there are problems associated with chucking it straight out

Yes, MediaWiki-extensions-EducationProgram is being phased out slowly but it'll be uninstalled from the projects afaik. See, for example, T111630.

Sorry to abuse this room but I'd appreciate if someone with +2 rights on mediawiki/core and mediawiki/extensions could have a look at some patches at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/q/topic:T180052 which are required to close the task mentioned in their commit message. Thanks in advance for your help.

(I'm not sure if it'd work to create a conpherence room for mediawiki to request this kind of things)

it most likely wouldn't

Dummy question: in InitialiseSettings there are wikidatawiki selector and somewhere wikidata. As they are only one wiki in the wikidata group (other than beta/texts, no ?), why these two versions ?

Nov 30th, 2017

@Framawiki: there is more than one wiki in the wikidata group

open up the dblist and see

T181045: Enable both "edit" and "edit code" tabs in Polish Wikipedia might get interesting since it seems they're mass pinging people about this

I'd like to ask again for help at T169450 in order to complete the requested changes. Thank you.

I only suggest to reopen T18889 so the Moldovan localization can be stopped

I've reopened the task. Still I request support at T169450 if possible. Thanks.

Hello, I'd like to ask for help understanding the pagelinks output at T180052#3816125 and how to fix them. I've fixed the other conflicts already. Thanks.

Dec 7th, 2017

Also, with regards to T180052#3818889 - do we have to create the Book namespace or does Collection do it for us? Thanks.

T183358: Enable SecurePoll on Arabic Wikipedia requires some more eyes. I actually think it is not doable, but I'm not very familiar with the extension.

@MarcoAurelio Huji commented today the task, with a sensible comment. It probably requires a subtask to define the request workflow, and some documentation about the maximal size for web handling.

Dec 23rd, 2017

@Dereckson I saw, thanks. Could you please check my message on this room from Dec 7th, 2017 (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/conpherence/398/#12828)? Thanks.

Jan 13th, 2018

@MarcoAurelio I'm not Dereckson but I think that Book is custom namespace generally unrelated to Collection. For example, cs.wikipedia have Collection enabled but have no Book namespace, all books reside under page in NS_PROJECT

Jan 14th, 2018

is it just me, or does the recent gerrit commits on T16624: Change autoconfirmed days limit in Chinese Wikipedia. have nothing to do with the task?

@TerraCodes, you're right. Somebody did make a typo in the commit so it reffer to said task.

Jan 15th, 2018

Personally I think that some tasks like T178660 and T176706 should better have their own column, suggest name "local upload related". What do we think about?

Jan 16th, 2018

Hello all, can help here?

it's since 1.5 years!

Hello, we've got conflictual report from ar.wikipedia users from what the community wants and doesn't want.

According https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T148603#2733669 and next comments, this change IS approved by ar. community.

Jan 24th, 2018

I think because cawikimedia is using local override as can be seen in here.

Hello, I know that I should not post here, but can anyone help to add suitable tags or mention users who interested in this task?

Feb 11th, 2018

It's already correctly tagged, with Jarry as subscriber, the tool author, so it's probably fine. I'm not sure for people interested, as https://github.com/Jarry1250/labs-svgtranslate/ doesn't contain any other contributor to the tool.

Wondering if T170836 can be easy solved?

Mar 1st, 2018

T168203 - someone says consensus is needed for such task, someone else (elitre) says no consensus is needed - I want to do same thing for kowiki, do we need consensus or I can just proceed with patches?

Changing it to what is already used in the normal web version shouldn't be controversial at all, so I'd say no consensus needed.

T148603 - I don't see way in flaggedrevsions.php to only make the quality part of flaggedrevsions only work on a namespace?

@Dereckson Since you've handled in the past this kind of requests, would you like to handle T188537 as well? Thanks.

Getting a missing file error while doing T188940 (subprocess.py) too.

I uploaded a patch here to enable rollback group in arwikiquote and then i scheduled the patch in this page, so Is there any thing else needed from my side ? Thanks

@Jayprakash12345 Thank you, this was very helpful

Hello, I leave a comment on @T148603, and I wish to raise the priority to High or Unbreak now!

As I wrote there, if we can at least revert every changes made based on the task!

alanajjar added a participant: Mr.Ibrahem.

All articles (ns=0) on arwiki (around 560,000 articles) have pending edits now, due to this issue!

this happened when the code changed on 2 March!

Mahir256 joined the room.

@alanajjar DO NOT change priority to UBN, it is used for changes that BREAKS normal production and MUST be done RIGHT no (which isn't case even in your wiki). High isn't also usable as it means that the change should be done in this SWAT week (as this isn't fixed since March 2, 2018 this isn't this case). Cheers, Martin

Mar 19th, 2018

@Urbanecm I don't change it! I just said (to show the depth of our problem)!

Hello. Does somebody know why links to root pages on Wikivoyages do not appear at all? I checked rOMWC and I see that subpages are enabled for the template namespace in all of them. Yet, while in Wikipedia we have links to root pages on subpages on Wikivoyage we have none: frwikivoyage, eswikivoyage, etc. Thanks.

Hmm, so the defaults ain't working at all. De.Wikivoyage did had to explicitly enable subpages to get those links, cf. https://de.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Vorlage:Bots/Doku

Hello, I've questions about T189277: Change aliases on ruwiki. Please post your opinion, thanks !
