Billinghurst added a comment to T274495: Genericize language on the Wikisource download button to remove specific models of tablet.

But it is for Kindles. We want to make things as easy as possible for those who just want to download. I reckon just leave it.

There are many devices from many manufacturers that can process this content. Instead of giving an advertisement for a Big Tech abuser, just make it generic. If you have one of their proprietary jails, you know which file types it uses.

Billinghurst added a comment to T264788: Wikisource: migrate API to Parsoid's API.

I compared the appearance of ebooks generated on test and production for a number of different ebooks, including those in the recently popular list.

I found a number of differences before and after this change. Many of these are not likely to be troubling to users. For example, margins between paragraphs sometimes differ, some text is aligned differently, some text is of different size.

What would be the purpose of retaining them? In the scheme of things these wikis are tiny and the space and infrastructure debt would presumably be negligible, so the issue would be the value of keeping them as separate copies.

All the user links in revision histories, etc., use path-style parameters which produce a broken link such as Special:Block/Printf("Herro_World");. Until this is fixed, we can use AbuseFilter to disallow creation of usernames/pages with semicolons.

then we can just have the link set to c:Commons:GNU Free Documentation License, version 1.2 that will work, even from Commons.

Billinghurst added a comment to T250497: equals sign in search seems to cause timeout.

Well something quirky is happening. That was the url that the system delivered from the search at the time. Good now. MA knows that I have been having other time out issues with spambot urls, so I am just going to have to keep a watching brief.

Billinghurst added a comment to T247432: Preserve the ability to make interwiki links to Toolforge tools under the host based routing scheme.

We also have four others to be managed, all easy conversions

These 4 are not Toolforge tools. They are instead Cloud VPS projects behind a different web proxy. These hostnames are not changing at this time. We have long term plans to replace the *.wmflabs.org naming with *.wmcloud.org, but that will be done as a separate project.

Can someone please add the documentation of this to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SyntaxHighlight and the requisite fix. The fix should be clear and evident. Thanks.
