AdHuikeshoven added a comment to T249074: Define approach for expanding the Replying tool's `visual` mode toolbar.

Rather than buttons like B, or I, I would like to have a button to insert an image in the replytool visual mode toolbar. Inserting an image is much more common than inserting a table in a reply. for example to give someone a barnstar, that is a picture of such a thing.

AdHuikeshoven added a comment to T246190: Reply v2.0: conduct usability tests (usertesting.com).

@Aklapper, please review.
@Alsee. Thanks for testing. It looks like the reply tool without the visual mode as in pilot on nl.wp and 3 other wikis currently does not support tables, and probably does not support a lot of other wikitext either, except bold, italic, and underline, wiki links and template. No wonder the unsupported markup doesn't do well in a roundtrip around the visual mode.
The source mode of editing a talk page still exist. Senior editors like you can easily switcht to the source mode of a talk page without using the reply tool.
The developers are developing a new tool, which is availabe in a test wiki. Reply 1.0 is in pilot mode on 4 wikis. Just as a way of finding out what works, and what not.
Your wikitext:
normal '''bold ''bold-italics''' italics'' normal
is not correct wiki markup.

Yup, see https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gebruiker:Ad_Huikeshoven/Kladblok/2?veaction=editsource. I could replicate it on a normal VE enabled page without the reply link.

AdHuikeshoven added a comment to T252359: Reply tool inserts `<nowiki/>` when switching input modes.

I have tested https://nl.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/w/index.php?title=Overleg%3AHoofdpagina&type=revision&diff=436&oldid=435 which shows
normal '''bold ''bold-italics''''' ''italics'' normal roundtrips correctly between visual and source.
That is I replaced "<nowiki/>" in "normal '''bold ''bold-italics'''''<nowiki/>'' italics'' normal" with a space: " ".
I think this is general VE or parsoid behavior, and has nothing to do with the reply tool.

For the Dutch Wikipedia ideally you would link from recent changes to a page in Dutch on the Dutch Wikipedia in the Wikipedia: namespace. Some people really don't like when they are diverted to another project in another language with a community they don't know. That page could have a section on international collaboration with links to other projects and to mw.org.

The reply tool is active on talk pages on the Dutch Wikipedia as beta feature. @WhatamIdoing wrote the feature to be active at the village pump as well https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:De_kroeg#New_Beta_Feature. It isn't. In the short pretest a couple of weeks ago it was, by extending the url. The village pump isn't in a talk name space, however.

AdHuikeshoven added a comment to T234520: Flag edit(summary) as incivil.

My apologies for the confusion but the Anti-Harassment tag is actually for the projects being actively worked on by the Anti-Harassment Tools team and not an umbrella project tag for all anti-harassment issues.

This idea has merit but our team has some other projects underway that we need to work on first.

On another machine, a laptop, with a fresh install of Ubuntu, I replicated the error with enabling Varnish:

Error: Execution of '/usr/bin/apt-get -q -y -o DPkg::Options::=--force-confold install libpcre3-dev' returned 100: Reading package lists...


followed by

Error: Execution of '/usr/bin/apt-get -q -y -o DPkg::Options::=--force-confold install libpcre3-dev' returned 100: Reading package lists...

I tried

vagrant ssh
sudo apt-get install libpcre3 libpcre3-dev

and tried to provision again, which results in

AdHuikeshoven updated subscribers of T131085: EventLogging vagrant role fails to provision.

@Ottomata thanks for looking it to this. I have good news. The good news is that my machine is now provisioned with eventlogging without errors. I solved by vagrant destroy deleting the instal path ~/Vagrant and start over with $ git clone --recursive https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/mediawiki/vagrant . Previously I used the .iso image from https://mediawiki-vagrant-image.wmflabs.org/mediawiki-vagrant/ . My guess is there something not good in the .iso image, at least when used at a Windows host @bd808. Question for @Jdforrester-WMF if my solutions works for you?

@Ottomata Here is what I get on a pristine VM. First before pulling your change, and then after pulling your change. Indeed, it didn't affect this problem.

Reach out to small wikis about this. Have a conversation at Wikimania for example. Please involve stewards and / or small wiki monitoring team.

AdHuikeshoven added a comment to T54721: Create a Wikifarm role for MediaWiki-Vagrant.

In MediaWiki-Vagrant there is a role Flow which depends on the role centralauth. After enabling Flow (and provisioning and waiting for an hour) you'll end up with a farm consisting of

  • dev.wiki.local.wmftest.net
  • login.wiki.local.wmftest.net
  • centralauthtest.wiki.local.wmftest.net
  • fr.wiki.local.wmftest.net
  • frwiktionary.wiki.local.wmftest.net
  • he.wiki.local.wmftest.net
  • zhwikivoyage.wiki.local.wmftest.net

For existing registered users on your localhost (dev.wiki.local.wmftest.net) you have to manage your global account in preferences. If you don't you get an error page at login.wiki.local.wmftest.net after log in and you have to go manually to dev.wiki.local.wmftest.net to find your wiki where you are logged in. (I haven't found a way to add additional wikis in this setup.)
Looks to me there is something like a wikifarm role now.

AdHuikeshoven added a comment to T98398: Multiwiki disambiguation page does not correctly route to the main devwiki.

Yesterday I installed MediaWiki-Vagrant from https://mediawiki-vagrant-image.wmflabs.org/wiki/Main_Page and enabled and provisioned Flow. The "No wiki found" error page for a nonexistent *.wiki.local.wmftest.net gives a list of available wikis in the farm. On top is devwiki, which links to http://dev.wiki.local.wmftest.net:8080/ and not to an IP address. Looks like resolved to me.

AdHuikeshoven added a comment to T93375: vagrant default wiki is not in interwiki table / sites table which means it can not be linked in wikidata.

After enabling Flow I ended up with a small wiki farm. After enabling role interwiki I could manage interwiki links at the page special:interwiki. That might help in the wikidata role as well.

I've got mediawiki-vagrant up and running including visualeditor role. However with enabling flow provision says ""error: pkg.m4 missing, please install pkg-config". How to surpass this hurdle? Where and how should I install pkg-config (I tried manually several places without success).

@RobLa-WMF , thanks for the kind words. The status of Discourse is a pilot a test and generates feedback about what people like and what people don't like. There are some strong preferences to receive updates or notifications by mail about discussions and to be able not only to reply by mail to a discussion thread but also to be able to create a new thread. Some people have been asking for synchronization of mailing lists and Discourse. As, if and when that materializes Discourse can or will coexist alongside Mailman mailing lists, just like gmane coexists alongside Mailman. Discourse provides an alternative web interface and some extras. GNU Mailman 3.0 also provides a web interface. After an updrade to Mailman 3 there might be a reduced level of interest in moving to Discourse.

Any test mailman list will do which behaves technically the same as for example wikimedia-l.
