because nobody wants images from the bad image list to show up in search results.

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T40010: RFC: Re-evaluate librsvg as SVG renderer on Wikimedia wikis.

I am… getting impatient enough to ask: how hard is it to, really, just make our own statically-compiled rsvg-convert binary into a deb package and then deploy it? I mean:

# Aug 2 2022

The font-family may encode not only the font family, but also the font-style or the font-weight.

# May 15 2022

For showing the original source on hover, we can maybe instead just display the a trimmed tree down to the base ref (in the beta extends proposal). That is, for:

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T151301: Implement "extends"-attribute for ref-tag.

Bit surprised to see the book-reference / extends system cancelled after all the advertising on Template:rp and such. Ouch. Should’ve went to the vote.

GKFX awarded T222678: Add image-rendering to cssImage3 set a Doubloon token.

# Sep 27 2021

Appreciate the heads-up, but I am pretty sure the very relevant follow-up would be: which version is Debian stale on? The hesitancy of the team to even backport testing/unstable source packages has been a persistent roadblock to us getting good things.

# Jul 4 2021

Putting a +1 here because someone on zh.wp telegram group asked for a way to not list navbox-introduced links. I agree that these links don't make sense to be counted and add unnecessary noise to "most wanted" and similar stats.

# May 11 2021

At least the 2.51.1 result makes more sense and works in non-extreme scales...

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T271663: Offer to invert text-anchor for RTL languages.

Every time I hear a librsvg bug, I can't help but ask: "is it a Debian stable librsvg bug or an actual librsvg bug?" (urgh) And indeed, a quick test using rsvg-convert from libsrvg 2.50 shows the red and black text on the last line overlapping fine.

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T221743: wgProxyList: Does/Should it work with CIDR ranges?.

By the way, is the IPSet (\$proxyListIPSet) always created anew when User::isLocallyBlockedProxy is called? I am not sure what to make of that...

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T49725: Implement Lua interface for Language Converter.

There we go, I guess. Simple as mw.language.findVariantLink(link : string) -> string.

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T49725: Implement Lua interface for Language Converter.

I was trying to introduce Wikidata-based annotated link to zh.wp the other day, and mw.wikibase.getEntityIdForTitle was not working too well for this exact reason. Anyone want to triage this task?

# Apr 12 2019

I partially agree with calling this GIGO too. Those sort of things are not supposed to appear in pages anyway.

# Feb 10 2019

Arthur2e5 added a comment to T109366: Chinese language utilities.

I am thinking about using some preprocessing for Hans/hant -- we can flatten the text to one of the variants (character-by-charcter; no word based things so it is more predictable) and then perform the match.

There are some precompiled zh-pinyin database at https://github.com/mozillazg/pinyin-data (MIT license, although the Unihan derivatives may be taken otherwise), as well as for phrases (https://github.com/mozillazg/phrase-pinyin-data).

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.
