Ankry added a comment to T192199: Proofread scan appearing tiny in wikisource, when creating or editing Page: pages.

Since we've switched to OpenSeadragon for the image viewer, has this issue been resolved?

Ankry added a comment to T300563: Wikisource projects use different namespaces for page, so max width applying where it shouldn't.
  1. It was already suggested in T74525 to harmonize Page/Index namespace numbes across Wikisources
  2. The current number used can be retrieved from configuration using the wgProofreadPageNamespaceIds parameter
  3. The current list follows. It was extracted from the result of the script https://github.com/phil-el/phetools/blob/master/utils/gen_namespace.py

Please, remember that sourceswiki is also Wikisource (as "old" in the list below).

Ankry added a comment to T264488: Upload "Queued..." in UploadWizard for a significant time .

The problem appeared again today around 20:00 CET.
Maybe, it was a reason that there is much less number of files uploaded today than in previous days?

May it be related to moving the zooming tool outside of the "Proofread tools" submenu? It seems to be initialized regardless of the toolbar setting.
People also report that the tool zooming is less granular now (single zooming is much higher than it was previously). But this needs a separate bug.

Ankry, Do you have a Global Preference set for this? Check Specjalna:Globalne preferencje. This may be related to T296028: Unable to set a local override for some Global Preferences

No. The global preference for toolbar is also disabled.

Well that's a relief (for me). Upon further inspection, this doesn't appear to be related to the work we've recently done around Global Preferences. I can also confirm it appears to be unique to Wikisource, so I don't think it's an issue with preferences in general.

Ankry added a comment to T215558: Proofread Page extension on Wikisource is displaying wrong pages; purge on Commons file fails.

That said...the real problem is clearly that MediaWiki or Thumbor or Varnish is not able to purge all the thumbnails. If someone has an example from the past 7 days it might be possible to look through the logs to get an idea of where the failure is happening (or at least rule out some stuff).

I don't have any files where the thumbnails are currently wrong (maybe someone else subscribed here has?), but the file mentioned in the description returned a failure when purging through the API earlier today (it succeeds now); and I just tested with the file from T206190 and got a failure. Presuming we don't have stale noise hanging around from older operations tripping up the API, whatever fails should have generated a log message somewhere for these.

s:File:A Latin Dictionary (1984).djvu shows up with 0x0 dimensions, no thumbs, etc.

Interesting. I've just reuploaded this file (for unrelated reasons) and now the previous revision is showing up on Commons with 0x0 pixel dimensions (but still 245MB file size). The current revision now shows up fine on Commons (as the previous did at the time it was uploaded) with dimensions and size, but when viewed from enWS it's broken (0x0) and PRP still chokes on it.

Ankry added a comment to T230689: Preload the next page's image on proofreading view.

If the thumbnail generation cannot be requested asynchronously, to avoid delay in presenting current page HTML code to user (and utilize the time when the page is being downloaded / rendered by the browser for thumbnail generation), then (IMO) it is better to request the next thumbnail generation from some javascript code which would be invoked after the page is already displayed in the browser. This is the way that current pl.ws/it.ws gadgets seem to utilize.

Ankry added a comment to T230689: Preload the next page's image on proofreading view.

The main goal here is to perform server-side page thumbnail generation in advance. If this can be made without preloading, it is OK. I am not sure if prefetch would provide this.
Thumbnail generation process has been identified to be the most time-consuming part of the "next page" loading process. So making the next thumbnail ready server-side is the main goal.

Hard to do. It is a piece of LUA and requires proofreage namespaces. It would need not trivial porting to test there.
It works through {{#tag:score|...}} and LUA-generated code.

Ankry added a comment to T257066: Extension:Score / Lilypond is disabled on all wikis.

We are using some tools in plwikisource that require the raw mode. The tools are intended to choose among various width scores (when rescaling a window) and for merging multiple scores. Will they work? The most "complex" lilypond feature they need is to define and use own variables (as \commands).
We are ready to test this, if possible.

Ankry added a comment to T275958: Enable interlanguage links from multilingual Wikisource to other Wikisources.

Generally they probably should not have such pages:

  • in the main namespace, each page that should be linked to Wikidata constitutes a separate edition. They should be linked in Wikidata using https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:WikiProject_Books
  • in the Author namespace it is possible that there are few Author pages providing the Author name in various languages but this should be resolved internally by creating a multilingual author page in such cases and I do not think we should care of this problem

I have not testet it but if it is only possible to move a page if there is also a file involved then this might work.

If you want to move File:A.jpg ---> File:B.jpg

  1. Undelete File:B.jpg (if it is deleted and if not just skip to 2)
  2. Move File:B.jpg ---> File:A.jpg
  3. Delete File:A.jpg
  4. Undelete File:A.jpg
  5. Move File:A.jpg ---> File:B.jpg
  6. Delete File:B.jpg (if it is supposed to be deleted)

Ankry added a comment to T257066: Extension:Score / Lilypond is disabled on all wikis.

This is not so simple. In Wikisource we convert music scores from images to make them editable and proofread the music scores. So users needs to be able to edit them some way. How are they expected to edit the resulting images if their role is just converting images into an editable form?

So the editable format is lilypond?

Yes. And the image should not replace it. The lilypond code should be still available in some way in the newest page version.
So, if it is updated, the image may also be updated.

The second link is an ogg file. Maybe you could move to midi or musicxml as editable format?

Anyway, my proposed solution was just meant as a quick and dirty hack so Wikipedia end users for the time being can at least see the scores that are currently in lilypond. These scores are usually small examples anyway, not full pieces, but they are important for end users trying to learn from Wikipedia. Once the lilypond security issue is solved, it could be reverted back to <src> (the src could actually be kept as a comment or deactivated somehow). Some scores in Wikipedia are already in image format, so I guess it wouldn't be that bad (for end users).

Making a dirty hack is better than doing nothing. If lilypond cannot be executed on WMF servers, it may be executed on an external server, in specially prepared secured, chrooted environment, and the image uploaded/updated by a bot.

Ankry added a comment to T257066: Extension:Score / Lilypond is disabled on all wikis.

Hi,

I'm one among a presumably significant group of people around the world trying to learn music during isolation, and I've come across this issue in Wikipedia. I wonder what is the status, since there doesn't seem to be a lot of updates lately.

From my limited technical knowledge about this, I am thinking that if the LilyPond security is very difficult to overcome, anyone with access to all the Wikipedia source (understood as the source anyone can read in the edit page of each article) could run lilypond on an offline machine with no sensitive info and generate an image for each <score> tag, and another simple script could then substitute which <score> tag with an appropriate <img> tag. A special attribute could be added so all these cases can easily be reverted to something else if the <score> issue is solved in the future.

Ankry added a comment to T257066: Extension:Score / Lilypond is disabled on all wikis.

Since a couple of days, saving any article that calls the score extension leads to the score becoming invisible (without having the score itself changed). So the workaround of reading pre-rendered files from the cache seems no longer to be working. It is really annoying that the problem is still not solved after such a long time of waiting. There are currently 1,241 pages calling score on en:wikipedia, 748 on de:wikipedia which are endangered of losing the proper display of the contained scores.

And 2,161 on en:Wikisource. And 1,254 pages marked as waiting for a score to be added. In addition, we've got several books that are stalled while waiting for this update.

Ankry added a comment to T128173: Represent editions as interwiki links on Wikisource.

I believe that the approach would be:
For each language:

  1. If there is a local inter-language link to this language in the wikitext of the page, use it and stop the lookup.
  2. If there is a sitelink to this language in the Wikidata item of the page, use it and stop the lookup.
  3. If there is a sitelink to this language in a Wikidata item connected to the Wikidata item of the page using edition of (P629), use it and stop the lookup.
  4. If there is a sitelink to this language in a Wikidata item connected to the Wikidata item of the page using edition (P747), use it and stop the lookup.
  5. If there is a sitelink to this language in a Wikidata item connected to the Wikidata work item using edition (P747), the work item being connected to the Wikidata item of the page using edition of (P629), use it.

This way, I think we cover all the use cases. 1, 2 and now 3 are already implemented.

Since yesterday, if a Wikisource page is connected to a Wikidata item that states that it is an edition of the work using P629, the sitelinks of the work item are displayed on the page in the "In other languages" sidebar.
The next step is to look for the other editions on Wikidata using P747.

  • a file with deleted revisions was moved; and the revisions needed to be undeleted and merged with the file history after the move (they remained under the old filename)

That looks like a separate bug to me. When a file is moved, the software should move it with its complete revisions deleted or not deleted. No revision should left behind for human admin to manually later 1. undelete, 2. merge, and 3. re-delete again.
I cannot verify this bug myself though. If you can confirm that's the case, it should be reported as a distinct bug.

What's the use case of moving such pages in File namespace? The pages should be deleted as they should not be created in the first place [1]. And indeed your two examples above have been deleted, only the pl.wikisource one remains and you created it for the purpose of this report.

[1]. The real bug here, I think, is to disallow creating pages in the File namespace completely. Commons and Enwiki (and probably other wikis) already have policies to speedily delete such pages. It should be enforced by the software.
