Wikimedia volunteer, MediaWiki enthusiast
does sometimes MediaWiki business consulting and runs 60+ MediaWikis on different servers and farms
just broke my wikis the same way while trying to upgrade to 1.31.1
I'd love to use it again, currently it doesn't work. I had SVN commit access but since the move I cannot log into Git. I have complained a few times about it but as this ticket is still open for several years now I had to wait until this here is solved, so I have eventually given up on it, even though there are extensions I am supposed to maintain.
a feature we need to cover in the new documentation: https://github.com/mooeypoo/MWStew
Jabber / XMPP
SMTP + SMTP MSA
I also had a toolserver account with that name and would rather want to keep my history in SVN / Git etc. Deleting it or renaming it shouldn't matter.
I would be happy if, instead of discussing this for months and locking me out of tools and Git, someone could take a few minutes and fix this, so I have a valid login again.
Thanks a lot for merging this so quickly! I am looking into the user agent thing now, will ask the IA people if they could allow ours.
air faires for Thu March 17 through Mon March 21st
By the way the code is all open source and hosted on Github. I think in the long run it should go to WMF's Git but for starters it was just easier to start at Github:
Thanks for your comments.
may I ask for input / feedback on that task please?
Thanks a lot!
Wikimedia-Video is fine for me.
I can only handle the new bugs I will create.
what is the status here?
Can we *PLEASE* get this done - my list of bugs I need to file and assign is growing bigger and I have some really urgent things to get done!
that would at least be Fuzheado, Brion, me, Dan Dennedy (developer of the Schnittserver), most likely also Sebastiaan ter Burg, Prolineserver (developer of the Videoconvert tool on WMFlabs)... and hopefully many more soon.
Ok, problem here: SMW is all simple MW syntax, there are a bunch of examples and experience around.
Hmm, having Wikibase could be an alternative. It would need some help from Wikidata pros to achieve what we planned to do with SMW.
Originally I was thinking to create a simple project, then I learned about subprojects etc. which could be useful for us. So we could have subprojects for handling issues about the video wiki, others for the mailinglists or another for the Schnittserver.
Thanks a lot Greg for your response. That certainly brings some brightness into this discussion :-)
Well, we are a volunteer body who serve the movement, as volunteers, and provide a service.
The techs are paid staff intended to provide their tech service as well. Of course I don't expect "drop everything", but so far we have made a resolution that we need to introduce certain workflows and the best and easiest way doing so is using SMW, as that already exists, is in use by the WMF and runs on top of our existing working platform. That was on January 29th, so far we have lost one month doing nothing, we don't even have an ETA and no real reason not to just do it. That is not an acceptable service level to me, especially as the whole install takes five minutes - so we wasted more time discussing than to just fix the actual issue.
Well, in the end we simply need the features and (since we lost quite some time since this discussion has started) we need them soon. We have a huge tech department, server admins and software developers, so we just need to get it done.
I don't understand. We alread use SWM on wikitech wiki, why can't we just do the same for the affcom wiki then? Where is the difference?
I guess most of the tickets will come from our team anyway, we will obviosuly tag our related tickets.
We will communicate this on video-l as soon as it is created.
Can we get some feedback on this please?
We want to start tracking stuff in the wiki and build some automated tools, which need the structured data in the wiki.
