leila added a comment to T216750: Article recommendation API: replace WDQS with MW API.

@leila I just stumbled upon this task, and besides being happy that patch was merged I'm asking myself:
Why don't we have a maintainer (e.g. a developer that can deploy the code and has +2) on this project that is currently installed in production?

We will track progress towards them in that doc. I will leave this task open until all those tasks are completed, likely by November 2019.

leila added a comment to T171635: Prototype new models to facilitate sockpuppet detection.

We have received the first feedback from a checkuser and we will need to change one thing in the set of predictions. At the moment, we include all accounts, including those who have not edited in the past 90 days, but this information is not actionable for checkusers as they can't use other (sometimes private) information that are kept and can be used for 90 days in these cases. It makes sense to remove these predictions, or give two outputs and let them filter by less-than-90-day-edit-activity or not.
