AlexisJazz added a comment to T279827: "The owner of a task can always view and edit it." is confusing.

The default policy when escalating to a security policy includes task author. That simply means though whoever made it private either did it manually and forgot or isn't using the standard security policy for a reason.

That isn't the case for WMF-NDA tasks.

I would assume the owner of a task is the assignee, not the author.

Looks correct, but that error message could use the term "assignee" to avoid confusion.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T278579: Special:Export broken: always generates an empty file.

The problem is that the ob_end_clean() in wfResetOutputBuffers() results in a call to OutputHandler::callback(), so Content-Length: 0 is sent. Previously the buggy code was only activated if the request was HTTP/1.0, but Aaron's patch exposed it for other kinds of requests.

The Content-Length handling in OutputHandler seems to duplicate MediaWiki::outputResponsePayload(), and it's unclear to me why we need both.

AlexisJazz updated subscribers of T208827: It should be possible to view source on protected pages in MobileFrontend Minerva.

The "garbled" interface text comes from https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Template:Protected_page_text via https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext That template uses a table for layout and uses position:relative. This is fine on a desktop-size display, but doesn't work well on mobile. Similar effects occur opening the desktop site at a smaller size or high zoom level:
As this issue is caused by on-wiki interface text (not MediaWiki code), it shouldn't affect the status of this patch. However, we should let the communities know that they may wish to update MediaWiki:Protectedpagetext accordingly.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T272364: Overly blurry JPG thumbnail for a specific JPG image due to chroma-subsampling not working in CMYK.

That is, essentially, how I would fix it on the Thumbor end, if ImageMagick is working as expected. It would make sense to ask them if this is expected behavior first.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T272364: Overly blurry JPG thumbnail for a specific JPG image due to chroma-subsampling not working in CMYK.

Our chroma subsampling configuration hasn't changed since at least 2016, and this occurs with the latest ImageMagick. Besides, this is a black-and-white image, so chrominance shouldn't even be a factor.

$ identify -verbose Smileyface.jpg
Image:
  Filename: Smileyface.jpg
  ...
  Colorspace: CMYK
  ...

Turns out this image uses the CMYK colorspace, and chroma-subsampling doesn't work in CMYK. ImageMagick is supposed to ignore it for CMYK images. If the image was transformed to YCCK, then subsampled, that would also be OK. The original file does contain a subsampling-factor property, which seems to be ignored properly when we don't set the CLI param.

I'm not sure if this is more of a "we shouldn't ask ImageMagick to do something stupid" or a "ImageMagick shouldn't do stupid things even if we ask" problem.

  • no change in the level of traffic received from users on AS 33915 (which, as best as I can tell, is your ISP)

There is perhaps a little more digging I could do if you provided me with your public IP address at the time (if you do so, please mark this as a security task beforehand, of course).

I don't know why you decided to mention web designers or WMF employee as I only asked for what you expect to happen instead, as a reader.

As a reader, I don't expect any survey. I have no use for a survey. But this answer is probably fairly useless for a developer, is it not? There are dozens of ways to implement surveys, some more annoying than others. And whatever I suggest, a developer may actually know a better way that's even less intrusive, because I don't know all the possibilities.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T268274: Enable translating from any already translated language in Extension:Translate.

About six months ago I wrote a proof of concept and even demoed this feature. The code is in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/mediawiki/extensions/Translate/+/588755 but it's not merge-able.

Ah, this is clearer.

This is actually possible, too, in two ways.

The first is to enable assistant languages in the preferences. If a message or a translation unit of a page is translated to the assistant language, this translation will be shown in the sidebar. (I know that @Nikerabbit even thought about some improvements to the UI of this, but it has been possible for a long time.)

The other is to use Special:PageLanguage to set the source language of a translatable page. It's a relatively new and feature, and it's not as well-known as it deserves to be, but I know it has been used for a bunch of pages on Meta. See https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:Translate/Page_translation_administration and search for "Changing the source language".

Does this address your questions?

AlexisJazz reopened T268274: Enable translating from any already translated language in Extension:Translate as "Open".

I'm not sure I understand the problem. When translating you can choose both the source language and the target language. Go to the dashboard (Special:ContentTranslation), click "New translation". Click the language name in the search box: this is the source language. Choose the article to translate. Then choose the target language.

A translator if fluent in two or more languages, but not English.

Indeed, this is already handled, and a lot of articles from languages other than English.

The original is in Korean and a good English translation is available. Most translators would probably rather translate from English as Korean isn't very popular as a second language.

This happens a lot, too.

Translation into a related language. For example, pt is already available and someone wants to add pt-br. (Brazilian Portuguese) They would rather translate from pt instead of en.

Brazilian Portuguese is not a separate content language in Wikipedia. (It can be used as a separate user interface language, but it's irrelevant for Content Translation.)

If someone wants to add fy (Frysk), they would probably rather translate from Dutch than English.

Yes, and this is done already, too. More articles are translated from Dutch to Frisian than from English.

To sum it up, I think that you just misunderstood how to choose the source language. I hope that this clarifies it. I'll mark the task as Invalid.

If you think that I misunderstood the problem, please tell me.

Sorry folks for dropping the ball on this.
After chatting with @Ladsgroup and reading @Uzume's comment above we can now easily add it to the "other sites" group in the UI. Would that be ok for people? (Making it show up in the Wikisource group is apparently a major major undertaking that I don't think we can justify.)

Thanks for the report @AlexisJazz.

There was a known issue that occurred at the esams edge site during the time window you describe. Whereas traffic to Beta Cluster goes direct to eqiad, which is why it still worked for you.

AlexisJazz added a comment to T265132: importScript() not working on mobile site.

You can always create a wrapper function in MediaWiki:Common.js or local to your script for readability.

function loadScript( title ) {
  mw.loader.load( '/w/index.php?title=' + title + '&action=raw&ctype=text/javascript' );
}
loadScript('User:jdlrobson/script.js')

@Jdlrobson Thanks for the info. I'm afraid this means there is no way (that isn't deprecated) to load a userscript without the "ugly" index.php URL?

In T85838#955840, @Tgr wrote:

This would require adding a new thumbnail parameter to generate "frozen" thumbnails for animgifs, and some way to switch between normal and "frozen" thumbnails.

I wonder what are the reasons for page authors to use animated gifs instead of videos, which seems like a more appropriate technology. Is it just that videos are harder to work with (in which case maybe we should offer automated conversion) or browser compatibility concerns or concerns about the video player UI, or do they actually want the animations to autoplay and loop?

AlexisJazz added a comment to T256527: Deploy the Commons deletion notification bot on nl.wiktionary [[SMALL]].

@MusikAnimal : It is now nearly two months since you moved this task to "Needs Review/Feedback". Nothing seems to happen. What's wrong?

Hi Marco! Let me first apologize for the long wait. We have been exhausted with higher priority work over the past few months. The bigger issue here is the developer who wrote the bot is no longer on our team, and the rest of us aren't very familiar with the codebase or Python. That said, I have finally merged the change, and it should in theory be running on nl.wiktionary. However this bot task hasn't ran at all (on any wiki) for about a week. This seems to be historically true, where it will run for several days in a row then sleep for a week or so. I haven't quite figured out the logic yet, or if that's just circumstance. So, I guess bear with us while we try to figure this out. We'll be keeping an eye on https://nl.wiktionary.org/wiki/Speciaal:Bijdragen/Community_Tech_bot

AlexisJazz added a comment to T252814: Unused local "stewards" group (finding situations that local stewards groups are used).

I still think this should be WONTFIX/declined: I recently used the group at el.wikinews (https://el.wikinews.org/wiki/%CE%95%CE%B9%CE%B4%CE%B9%CE%BA%CF%8C:%CE%9C%CE%B7%CF%84%CF%81%CF%8E%CE%BF/rights), and I'm pretty sure it's also used somewhere else. It is rare, but still used. This can be also useful even after the userrights issue would be fixed: private wikis don't have global rights applied, yet rarely steward intervention would be required at some custom group, or to do bigdeletes.
