Aklapper added projects to T230854: Alt-Shift-V is used for two different things on sr.wp: VisualEditor, MediaWiki-Page-editing.

Hi @MiljanSimonovic, thanks for taking the time to report this and welcome to Wikimedia Phabricator!

Aklapper added a comment to T230097: Minoredit accesskey conflicts (not working) on Chrome .

@Perhelion: What is "bug report (window)"? No, nobody "is working against" so no need for accusation. One can also talk without being W3C members...

Aklapper added a comment to T230263: Tasks requiring manual edits of existing abuse filters in production (tracking).

@Daimona: Is there a reason why this is not a column on the workboard instead, or an additional project tag?

12== SESSION SUMMARY ==
13
14[introduction]
15I spend quite some time in Phabricator. Who's been on phabricator?
16Almost all.
17
18Who was confused?
19
20About half
21
22Will introduce what it is, why we have it, the most basid concepts about what it's used for
23Also how you can use it to organise projects yourself, not necessarily enginering projects.
24
25Title is to stress that lots of planning is organised on phabricator. Didn't wan to imply that all the devs are there, we have other stuff that's not manaaged there, e.g. gadgets etc.
26
27It's a proj man tool for software projs
28
29How many have seen other tools? e.g. bugzilla, trello, etc.
30
31About 6-8
32
33in proj man software, Try to define who does what work. What one person does is one task. Could be "issue", or "ticket" in other software. Called "task" in phab
34
35Easier to collaborate with phab. In wmf engineering teams, every team could choose what they used internally, so was hard to work together across tasks, because some used mingle, trello, bugzilla,
36
37In 2014 had RFC and phab was chosen.
38
39Who uses phab?
40
41[Slide with examples]
42
43As high level concepts, phab has projects, tasks, users/people.
44
45Various code projects, some specific gadgets where the devs wanted to manage them on phab,
46
47Some teams, some chapters.
48
49WMSE is maybe the biggest example of a chapter who uses phab.
50
51Hackathon sessions are on phab
52
53For people who don't write code, they can still request changes on phab, e.g. removing user account creation limit, or requesting site config changes on local wikis.
54
55People:
56 Anyone who's technically intersted,
57 devs
58 product managers who prioritise work
59 People who test code changes
60 Release engineering (when code changes go live)
61 People doing communication, e.g. technews on Meta
62 Designers
63 Translators (e.g. if there are English strings that can't be translated to yourlanguage)
64 Event organisers
65
66Things are organised around projects, tasks, people [screenshot on slide]
67
68Task has:
69 Status ('open' on that example) - can change to 'resolved' or 'declined'
70 Priority - that's not completely objective (see below). Not everyone uses this field. Can be used to plan work by urgency.
71 Visibility - by default everything is public, but for example security problems must be private.
72 Description (not on screenshot)
73 Discussion (if everything isn't quite clear)
74 Associated projects / tags Might be:
75 codebase
76 Topics that go across codebases or teams
77 Team tags (which teams are involved)
78 Tags haveStuff in brackets which will be discussed below
79 Subscribers
80 Author (won't change once task is created)
81 Assigneee (might be creator, might not) who is responsible to do the task. Only one per task: not supported and probably not a good idea. Can change over time. Can split task into subtasks if you need multiple assignees.
82
83Projects are used to organise their subtasks. Tasks can have more than one projects, and projects can have multiple tasks.
84
85Description should explain what the project is about.
86
87Q: Always in English?
88A: Not necessarily.
89
90Project can have members, but that's not super important.
91
92Q: Difference between members and subscribers?
93A: Subscribers are for tasks, members are for projects. Subscribers always get notifications, but members can watch or not watch a project.
94
95Every project also has its own workboard:
96 Description on the left
97 Then 'workboard', which can be disabled.
98 Helps with planning and organising work
99 Contains columns which contain cards.
100 Cards can be dragged from one column to another.
101 Leftmost column is 'incoming'
102 Assignee field determines whose picture is shown on the card.
103
104Setting priorities:
105 "lowest" → "unbreak now"
106 Some projects don't use priority field.
107 Sometimes creator of task sets high priority, but if they don't work on the task, it might be reset.
108 If two projects have the same task, but different priority in different teams, you can split the task.
109
110Q: When you open a task on phab, and you don't know whether it's a duplicate, how do you find out?
111A: If you're already technically aware of what codebase it might be related to, you can search the open task on that code project. Also search functionality on phab by keywords or by date. Not a problem to create duplicates, and developers can close duplicate tasks.
112
113Q: If I request a config change that might affect many people, can the product manager decide whether it is a good idea?
114A: On meta there's a page to request config changes. One step is to gather on-wiki consensus, and only later to raise phab ticket, and to link to consensus evidence.
115
116Q: Can you connect task in terms of which should be done before what?
117A: There is a section in every tasks which shows which tasks mention which tasks. Also concept of subtasks and parent tasks: subtasks must be completed first.
118
119Q: If I want to look for tasks, can I use phab with my normal wikimedia account?
120A: Just go to phab: it's single-sign-on. If you click login, you are presented with a 'login or register' button. Click that button and you will be redirected for oauth. On your first login you have to enter your email address (different from mediawiki sites).
121
122Q: Can I change the email address later?
123A: Yes.
124
125Last aspect is the user profile. [slide: AKlapper's personal user profile]
126
127Shows info, which projects you're member of, your activity log, notification settings, etc.
128
129To report a software problem, you file a task.
130
131Click on the bookmark icon at the top; click on 'create task'. Then you get a form to fill in. Title is necessary, there you right a short description of the task. Can fill in assignee field, but that is rude if you haven't agreed with them. Important: steps to reproduce the bug. Often not well enough described, and developer needs to get back to the task author. Please write expected result and actual result!
132
133Can add tags. Click on search button to get suggestions.
134
135Further down, there's a preview of the task.
136
137Q: Certain problem on enwiki where number of pages in category is incorrectly reported, but it was marked resolved, but it isn't, and new tickets just get closed immediately.
138A: I think I've seen those tasks, and it's not always clear whether it's really the same technical problem. You can change the status back to 'open', but you should give evidence if you do that. For example, it might be a different problem, or there could be more ways to reproduce it. However, if it's a really old task, rather create a new one, because the old one might not be relevant.
139
140[something about searching tasks that I didn't get]
141
142Following tasks:
143 Can receive emails or within phab: in the user settings.
144 Subscribers and members:
145 subscribe to individual tasks
146 "watch" project
147

Aklapper added a comment to T228360: Narrow scope of MediaWiki-Database workboard.

@Krinkle: I don't know what "Wikimedia-Rdbms" is supposed to be so I expected it to be a typo that I fixed, but now I saw T228360#5358106... Isn't that tag about the MediaWiki Core codebase, as its task description says? If it is not, then what is that Rdbms which is on Wikimedia servers but not in MediaWiki Core?

Aklapper edited projects for T230831: Add GrowthExperiments to tasks tagged as GrowthExperiments-*, added: Phabricator; removed Repository-Admins.

Removing Repository-Admins as this is unrelated to maintaining repos.

Hi @Michael_Hardy, thanks for taking the time to report this. Please add a more complete description to this report. This report lacks a clear list of specific steps to reproduce a problem, a link to a public website where the problem can be seen, and version information about your web browser(s).
You can edit the task description by clicking Edit Task.

Hi @Jony, I'm a bit wondering what's the best way here... maybe Bengali-Sites should be turned into a group instead of a tag, assuming that there are a few people who want to work on tasks and organize that work in sprints?
