Does P6028 mean there are something to fix? Thanks.

Sep 28th, 2017

you just have to run it with an extra option to disable dry run mode (i.e. actually fix stuff)

--help should show you the option to use, IIRC it was --fix or something

it looks like it's --fix

T50552 Can some one look it up? Someone annoyed me that "We need some help here. Perhaps the people who developed Curation should know"

Oct 2nd, 2017

See? Yes, I can see that task.

personally not sure why it was done via subproject

@revi I think it was an honest mistake. But I think an independent project would've been better.

That's - if I recall correctly - the wiki creation request primarily coming from LangCom, right? Then I agree some completely new project would've been better, but what's done is done :P

@revi We've two sources of requests for new projects: the primary one is the chapters, user groups, etc., the secondary one is LangCom (in amount of wikis to create per year).

In both cases, we're are the one to handle the request (langcom works in their mailing list and on meta and only fill a task when all is done on their side).

Wiki creation not only takes care of "MediaWiki system administration tasks to be performed on Wikimedia Foundation hosted wikis.", but also DNS and stuff, so I still think subproject is not a good place to be.

We tag Operations for the DNS, Apache stuff.

AFAIK converting a project into a subproject is possible for @mmodell via CLI. Doing the reverse might not be possible or involve manual touch of the database. I think we need to find a solution here that works for all without unnecessary burden. I'd have prefered an independent project, but if that isn't going to be possible without unneeded complications, I'd take the subprojects path for site configuration, extension setup and site management.

Is it possible to edit the project.config file via Git (refs/meta/config) on my local machine or that can only be done via Gerrit editor? Thanks.

Nov 7th, 2017

@MarcoAurelio It should be possible to check out refs/meta/config locally

there might be some trick needed to make it work

Nov 10th, 2017

Is there any one who can let me join Trusted-Contributors Contributors ? Because I sometimes should have right to make valid changes to pastes, heralds and security settings

heralds was not intentional, and was fixed

well, but I still need access to vote application

@Liuxinyu970226 Can you add me? If am Eligible

Samtar left the room.

@revi Can you add me as well? I'm already project-admin and repository-admin

does anyone know why they're saying I should abandon the patch even tho there's nothing on the task?

@TerraCodes the event start date is November 11, and ends December 11, so I guess they read that at "from 11 November to 11 november" instead and only wanted to say it wasn't deployed in time.

its from dec 11 - dec 11 tho

Gerrit is down. We're working on bringing it back as soon as possible. 
Please follow along the discussion at #wikimedia-operations on freenode as we debug.

Please try again later!
Nov 19th, 2017

@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.

Dec 6th, 2017

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!
