Bugreporter added a comment to T243701: Wikidata maxlag repeatedly over 5s since Jan20, 2020 (primarily caused by the query service).

By default pywikibot will do one edit every 10 seconds (or longer if you use parallel processes). This may be overrided by setting -pt:1 (or 0) and some bots runs under this setting. Other bots may not even sleep between edits (they edit continously), though most of them still follow maxlag.

Strainu added a comment to T243701: Wikidata maxlag repeatedly over 5s since Jan20, 2020 (primarily caused by the query service).

I have been thinking about this and I think I have a suggestion. bots and tools, should respect maxlag before it reaches the threshold. We need to return the value of the maxlag in the API as well but tool developers should check the maxlag, even if it's 3 or 2 seconds, then wait for that amount and make the next edit after that (or just sleep exactly after the edit is made). This way they slow down before "they reach the threshold and then have to back off the let go back to normal and then they start the flood of edits again and so on and so forth."

WMDE-Fisch added a comment to T241889: Previewing a Page: page appends unwanted newlines to each section.

@WMDE-Fisch Doesn't this just hide the problem? These newlines are coming from somewhere, and I can't think of a valid reason for them, so the root cause really should be fixed imo.
Incidentally, anywhere you add such things it'd be really helpful for others reading the code after the fact if there was a comment explaining why non-obvious stuff like the rtrim() is there. If it's a workaround for a given Phab, then just something like "// rtrim() is needed to work around T 241889".

I have been thinking about this. Originally I thought it would help but the more I think I feel it would be very similar to the increasing factor. The oscillation will be longer but the situation stays the same because they only respect after WDQS lagging behind too much due to speed. We need something to slow down the bots before they reach to the threshold of maxlag and would have to back off.
