Amire80 added a comment to T225398: English Wikipedia shows the "cannot be published" warning, even though I would be able to publish.

Since only enwiki currently really uses this config, we could make that user needs to be part of any group listed and then add "sysop" to the list.

Amire80 added a comment to T225568: Translate Edit Card UI strings.

OK, thanks for the clarification. If the functionality is the same, then it may be fine to use the same messages on desktop and on mobile. However, it is also imaginable that there will be issues with this. For example, that in mobile context the messages won't fit well in some languages. So be ready to add new message keys if translators or users ask for it, even if the English strings will be the same.

Amire80 added a comment to T225568: Translate Edit Card UI strings.

For this iteration, this is correct. No additional new messages need to be added or translated because for v1.0 we decided not to make any changes to the text strings within the Edit Cards UI. (Read: we are recycling language from the desktop link inspector. See screenshot below.)

I'll be fine with whatever allows me to build a chart that shows the three things:

  1. Published articles (from wikishared)
  2. Articles that need review (from EventLogging)
  3. Articles that were deleted (from wiki databases)

As a pet project, I've been trying to build a smarter way to write such strings in jquery.ime and core MediaWiki, so that they would be universally translatable, with completely correct grammar. I'm still far from achieving it, unfortunately.

OK, so now thanks to @mforns the chart works at https://language-reportcard.wmflabs.org/cx2/#cx-2-translations-that-need-review . However, this task ask to put the chart at the "CX2 translations that need review" tab together with the "CX2 translations" tab, as just one tab with two lines. I guess that this may be possible by editing the JSON configuration at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Config:Dashiki:CX2Translations , but I'm not sure how exactly.

Amire80 added a comment to T224396: Interlanguage links dashboard is broken since November 2018.

I'll clarify. It suddenly drops for all languages in November 2018. This isn't supposed to happen: all languages must be shown continuously, to the current week. However, if you select "null" in the list of projects in the sidebar, you'll see that it starts working in November 2018. So something happened then that made all languages collapse into "null". "null" is invalid, and it isn't supposed to be there at all. The list at the sidebar is supposed to include only Wikipedia, Wikisource, and Wikivoyage projects in all the valid languages. The Wikipedia projects are supposed to have non-zero data from mid-2016 until today (for Wikisource and Wikivoyage, the data collection began in December 2017).

ULS is perfectly appropriate, but as Nikerabbit says, what needs to be done is to take almost all languages in langdb, filter out a few unneeded ones, and pass that as the languages parameter in ULS initialization. Perhaps this deserves a new langdb function, I'll take a closer look.

Amire80 added a comment to T222309: Language code "sms" not recognized in Commons.

FYI: wgULSLanguages is a JavaScript variable generated by the ULS extension. It lists the languages that are available as interface languages in MediaWiki. sms doesn't have enough translations to be available as an interface language. The question is how and where includeLanguage (singular?) is defined. Alternatively, a new variable could be introduced that lists the languages allowed for captions.

@Yupik Yes! In fact, I had already uploaded a patch for this on GitHub (see here), but it is not working as intended. I was/am doing this in other "downtime", so I haven't been prioritizing it much.

The main problem for me is that it is not possible (as far as I know) to use the normal modifier keys, e.g. AltGr, to get the special characters.

The autonym for rmy could also use a better reference, as I noted in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/mediawiki/core/+/511054/ .

The whole autonym requirement doesn't work for dead languages or for languages we only have an oral source for though. So we unfortunately end up with unusable data from languages that we will never be able to find an autonym for in the case of dead languages or a reliable source for both cases.

There is no good reason for this differentiation. Many templates could be first-class features like "Cite", although global templates should probably implemented first.

I think the distinction at the moment is that the Cite tools relate to extension functionality defined in the code, specifically templates wrapped in a <ref>, and the Citoid tool allows automatic population of those templates.

Amire80 added a comment to T209868: Extend CX2 translations graph to show also published translations that need review.

I eventually decided to do this in mysql, and perhaps later move everything to hive if it's desirable. This is supposed to make the initial deployment easier.

Amire80 added a comment to T222505: Some strings were altered automatically, plural and grammar are broken.

Hi @YaronSh and @Amire80

The Android XML does not support the wikitext format, which texts contain the double parentheses, such as {{PLURAL|one=Last year|%d years ago}}.

Did it work recently?

I'm not sure when did this happen. I'm having a hard time even finding it in the Git history. This definitely doesn't look right, however.

This is already done at https://github.com/wikimedia/language-data/commit/0fa70d9beeb26cf883aeb099391a8cf32a1edb49 . For technical reasons it may take a bit of time to get it deployed to Wikimedia sites, but I hope it will happen as soon as possible. Thanks for the patience :)

Amire80 added a comment to T221534: Define template parameter mapping between languages as a wiki page.

Global templates (T121470) definitely are the right solution. Global templates are don't just about translatable—they are also about easing the burden of maintaining code that should be common, and about making the templates semantic. ("Semantic" means, for example, that it will be possible to define the function of the template in a way that will be machine-readable and cross-project, and that it will be possible to add a button to the VE toolbar that inserts the template in a meaningful and easy way, without having to write complex ultra-custom gadgets.)

Any improvement that automates the procedure at https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Add_a_wiki is a good step in the direction of implementing this. As the beginning of this task's description says, this task is a version of T158730 that addresses the user-facing aspects of creating new empty wikis, mostly in underresourced "small" languages (they are small only in their presence on the web, but some of them have millions of speakers).

OK, now I've looked at the code properly and I see formatDuration. It's kind of like a simplified Moment.js, for PHP. Like Moment.js, it's good for standalone expressions, but not necessarily for embedding in sentences.

Amire80 added a comment to T220256: Mixed use of RTL and LTR script with titles and usernames in a single line without isolation produce incorrect arrangement.

This happens because the Unicode bidi algorithm tries to re-arrange numbers and letters from different alphabets and cannot guess the user's intention correctly. This is especially common on MediaWiki sites with page titles, usernames, and IP addresses.
