Arthur2e5 added a comment to T197617: TemplateStyles should be able to add skin-specific CSS.

A thing @Shizhao has voiced concern about is the data overhead caused by "unconditional" loads as opposed to skin attribute-defined loads, per https://zh.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:%E9%A6%96%E9%A1%B5/styles.css. This might be the rationale behind T197617#4439270.

A better justification might be demonstrating such a feature for... (coughs) min-nan Wikipedia, which IMO has a pretty terrible situation with Romanization and scripts last time I checked. They seem to be using the article pages to hold the romanized article and the talk pages for the Chinese characters, which is obviously suboptimal and often not synced.

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T74240: Remove PNG only rendering mode.

The "proper" way of creating a debian package involves making a "debian" directory in the source and writing rules in it. There's a control file that gives package name and dependencies, a big Makefile called "rules", and a changelog for versioning to write. Debian likes to take extra care to split packages into smaller ones, but you don't have to do that.

For now at least GCJ-02 data can be justified since stuff like Geolocator and Coordinates use Google Maps. Baidu also has some click-to-see-coord feature, so I guess BD-09 data, although definitely limited to one proprietrary source that everyone uses, may be justfied as well.

I doubt that proposal's usefulness in our case, as WGS84-like (including ITRS) lat-lon is fairly ubiquitous on our planet. Adding a property for solving Earth problems also means complicating things like Template:Coord, which is something I don't want to do for "systems" created out of bad faith and riddled with errors (look at GCJ-02's ellipsoid and its supposed data source).

A bit of addition to that "AGF hat" part. It turns out that these twisted variations of WGS-84 do see widespread use out of map vendors' maps, and that's not limited to the gov's mandatory GCJ-02. Ningbo Government's database for historial and cultural sites, for example, uses Baidu's BD-09 (twisted GCJ-02) system so its internal APIs could use Baidu's maps smoothly. (Kudos to User:Siyuwj for pointing that out.) As administrative documents of state organs, such data should be public domain under China's copyright law.

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T170656: MediaWiki:Comma-separator in languages that use ideographic characters need to use two separators.

I believe that the most useful case here is the ideographic comma "、", used in Chinese for connecting a list of items. (The other comma "," is mainly for chunks of senstences.) Anyone using the other comma in a list of items need to serious consider what that , thing is and how they are ruining the language. It really looks like people are forgetting about the 、 comma and the ; semicolon, using , all the time instead. (Sorry for some rants here.)

As for T170916, I personally don't believe that nowiki fails conversion. The pre part can be worked around with the good ol' -{}- hack mentioned in T160696 (and the docs in https://mediawiki.org/wiki/Writing_systems/Syntax#Exception). The rest of T170916 should not be merged, as it additionally requests auto conversion of MediaWiki: message pages. In fact, T170916 should be refined and reduced into just the MW messages and unmerged.

Good question. With my AGF hat on, I would say that maps served in mainland China, Google (cn) or Baidu, also provide distorted/shift aerial imagery to mask the deviation applied, so "good guys" who look for places on the wrong aerial map are still screwed. The same is said to apply to some handheld GPS devices (but not smartphones) sold in China. Smartphones users still suffer from purposefully distorted readings of their current location from map apps though.

This happens on zhwiki too. And well, the reporter mentioned MediaWiki.org itself! No reason to keep it in "Non-WMF sites".

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T160830: Column layout for references doesn't play well with float elements.

An alternative fix on the CSS level would be doing clear: both to transfer the blame away from reference wrappers.

I don't see how that fixes the possible objection

Arthur2e5 updated subscribers of T92628: Unicode replacement character \ufffd appear in text extract if exchar cuts at section boundary.

@zhuyifei1999, the new revision (6) should have fixed the problem. Would you like to give it a try? I wrote a somehow nobody-wants-to-reuse function, but got rid of the XXX: note in the process.

Patch for testing submitted. Use it as a proof of concept, and don't expect it to pass human review. (Ugh, PHP bites harder than snakespeak!)

Since the 2 thing is nevertheless weird (UTF-8 won't let ASCII characters appear from nowhere), I modified my second mini-repro to use an h3 heading. Very curiously, it now says ��3 near the end.

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T92628: Unicode replacement character \ufffd appear in text extract if exchar cuts at section boundary.

With a longer extract length (256) set, and using &utf8 for readability, \n\n\n1 历史 appeared in place of the \n\n��2� markers. Using &exintro kills the FFFD as expected as that's where the lead section ends. Using a length of 129 gives `\n\n\n1. A length of 127 or 126 takes the last FFFD into the ellipses but keeps the 2, and 125 takes away �2, leaving a single FFFD.

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T160497: Reduce column width to 25em for mobile Minerva skin.

It might be possible to mention the possibility of customizing the column-width for individual wikis via site-level CSS (rationale being they may have different averages for citation line lengths) while also mentioning mobile page width as a caveat in the documentation. This way MediaWiki itself may avoid changing the 35em value, which may have been determined as, say, a good enough value for most wikis.
