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.

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?

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

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.

Will it be possible to just do a big @import of Common.css in Mobile.css? It would be great if someone could test that out.

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.

# Apr 15 2018

Now that MW generates unescaped ids, it might be a bit easier for the LC to work with -- just match the ids somehow and create new empty span elements nearby.

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

You can make your own repositories! Just clump some deb packages in one place, write a Release file, and let dpkg-scanpackages generate a Package index.

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.

Arthur2e5 updated the task description for T162331: Provide tools for processing obfuscated Chinese geodata (GCJ-02, BD-09).

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.

Just spotted at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mexico_1835-1846_administrative_map-en-2.svg. Uploading a transform-simplified version with SVGO to see whether it helps. (It doesn't.)
