Base added a comment to T209208: Enable arbitrary access on Beta Wikiversity.

@Reedy , while I agree with the first clause of your statement, I must correct the latter one: Beta Wikiversity is not a beta wiki for testing stuff like testwikipedia or testwikidata are. It is a full fledged content Wikimedia project being that to separate Wikiversities what Wikimedia Incubator is to separate Wikipedias, Wikivoyages, Wiktionaries, and Wikinewses.

Base added a comment to T204477: Create punjabi.wikimedia.org for Punjabi Wikimedians User Group.

The ISO 639-1 code for Punjabi is obviously pa, the respective Wikipedia is linked in the description, but the problem is that it matches PA — the ISO 3166-1 code for Panama. For this reason, I think, that pa.wikimedia.org should be reserved for a future Panama affiliate, and a different convention used for language based affiliates, such as pa-lang.wikimedia.org or something along those lines.

What is the current progress? From what I see mentioned here, a simple database migration has to be written to change be-x-old to be-tarask in several tables as well as in already generated json-blobs. Is it that difficult a task? I realise that a CLI script doing something like this might end up running for a while but I do not see evidence that it is really a blocker here. What can be done to facilitate this moving forward?

Base added a comment to T132546: Remove code for the old non-TUX UI.

@Nikerabbit, direct going was working accross projects, i.e. I could follow a memory on Meta to fix its source at Incubatorwiki. Does the special page provide this functionality? It is a serious limitation if it doesn't.
I see normal algorithm as provide additional interface, provide all the old one's features there, make it default, provide new features there, disable old. I do not see why it was so hard to follow, stem 2 was skipped almost completely, the thing I mentioned is just a random one of many things yet not implemented, the making default step was damn too early, and now you are already diaabling the old one completely. This makes translation administration harder, not easier. E.g. Just a couple of days ago I had to suffer from how difficult it is to split a translation unit in tux with the unit containing the old text always folding while another one is active (even though the selection is kept)

That was on try again on a wikimedia error (which did not have any information I could copy).

Base added a comment to T178744: Minor problems with rendering the small print in English and Russian.

At least for MediaWiki translations there are messages which are marked as optional and which exacly are different kinds of separators, brackets and so forth which one does not need to translate to get the default but can if default does not work. I think it is what should be done with the separator in this case if that is possible.

https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Mobile_Gateway/Mobile_homepage_formatting#MFSpecialCaseMainPage :
you wrap the main page block in div with that sort of id. You can also take a look at ukwn main page code for example.

Base added a comment to T178751: Provide an API so external tools can run SQL queries via Quarry.

It is also possible to run a bot a normal way (from personal computer or your own server) and ssh tunnel to Toolforge to run a database query (I believe it is easy to google how to do it for popular languages, I did not have trouble doing it in Java). It sucks comparing to direct access when you are running on Toolforge itself, the data transfer makes it so that sometimes it is faster to request stuff via Mediawiki API than like this (I am talking from experience), but it is still possible. Well, and it is the only way if you use proprietary components in your code so cannot comply with Toolforge rules. (Unless you create your own API there)

Do you mean that adding id="mf-something" does not make the block appear on the mobile frontend main page?

Base added a comment to T173714: Support translation of first page and title of training modules.

Are there some special requirements to marking of those pages? I opened a couple and see that they do not have <languages/> — is this deliberate? Must <noinclude> be used to add it? I can help with translate admin part if it is still needed but I need to make sure that the normal way of doing stuff would work well with dashboard.

Base added a comment to T174679: Figure out and set up training for translators.

About Translate extension… If it is a translate adminship part it is about I'd first do it for existing translate admins. I have a feeling that many translate admins from both sides (volunteers/staff) have not read or have not read carefully enough the documentation. (Though it looks sever to me with staff as those get the flags by decree and thus have 0 review, while with community process some at least are asked about the docs)

For example testwiki is not a very general educational resourse either, but it is still a wikimedia project. I do not see phab using another cms changing much. It could be arguable if phab were only accessible for logged in people (at least that was kind of an argument I heard on otrs wiki where people disregarded licensing policy as well), but it is not.

@mmodell, could you read the task description please? There is a policy when fair use could be used on Wikimedia projects and there is no complience with it on Phabricator at the moment.

This is still an issue. Can something be done? As I see nothing of use in Macros I suggest for the module to be disabled completely as a possible easy solution.
