Billinghurst added a comment to T300563: Wikisource projects use different namespaces for page, so max width applying where it shouldn't.

It would be lovely if all these pages could be migrated to a standard set of (reserved) NS numbers for ProofreadPage and have a redirect from the old to the new so that they old will continue to work while all tools are updated and issues resolved.

Billinghurst added a comment to T139557: Font-size variation in android browser due to use of colons.

I'd say this wikitext is suspect since colons output invalid HTML as well as unsemantic HTML. These are not lists but paragraphs or similar I would guess. Some sort of {{block indent}} template would be appropriate instead.

Billinghurst added a comment to T296033: Disabling toolbar no longer works in Page namespace.

It also overrides my version of the old toolbar that I use (2006 toolbar that is gadgetified). The modern toolbar is highly ineffective for the Wikisource work where I am needing my customisation for quick and effective transcription and formatting work. This change is very impactful on productive work, almost to the point of needing to stop the relieve that aggravation.

Some of these can be managed by metawiki's title blacklist. We already do that for numbers of prominent users, and would do that in this situation where duplicity is being attempted. Happy for a strings of regex to be provided to the talk page to achieve this, also noting that we have the antispoof ability there too.

I suspect in practice, it has not been useful or relevant for a contributor on the site to "clear their cache" for any purpose at any time in relation to the MediaWiki software after 2011.

I haven't needed to clear my cache for anything where the clearyourcache message is used; however, I sometimes have needed to do it when I reupload media. (Recent example from another editor)

If it is too hard to do an automated process, then maybe we can have an advanced functionality, Either something were we can exclude a page name, or an intermediary page where we can grab all the pages into a list, and then checkbox them for inclusion, and allow the manual deselection of pages for exclusion. It is problematic at this time that many works are pretty much excluded. I have deleted half a dozen of uploads due to this issue.

@Ninovolador In cases where there are endnotes in a chapter, I have done it two different ways, neither using "ref follow"

Billinghurst added a comment to T32597: <section> tag name collides with HTML5 <section> tag.

You could just as easily prepend "lst" to the name of the tag as in "lstsection", or something like "labeledsection" or "transcludedsection" (lengthiest name but I'm sure someone can come up with something else).

I don't know how much of a concern length would be; we already have syntaxhighlight, which is only three characters shorter than transcludedsection. I also like the above suggestions of includesection or sectioninclude to parallel includeonly et al, though I don't have any firsthand experience with LST so there might be valid non-length-related reasons for none of these names to be preferable.

Until someone analyses what is happening in the lint component for what is otherwise non-problematic code elsewhere, then who knows.

Billinghurst added a comment to T166138: Please add Petit Formal Script to the UniversalLanguageSelector.

Can that be solved by filing ticket to support WOFF2 in commons?

That would require a community RFC at Commons, and I am uncertain whether the Commons community would be inclined to expand their scope to include free fonts… partially because they would also need to "support" this, through patrolling, policies, tooling, etc. On Commons it would be fairly open-ended (vs. tightly controlled in ULS), so it would take significant community resources to deal with it.

I am not certain that this would require a community consensus of Commons. As I remember it, these restrictions have pretty much come from staff over the days. If push comes to shove. let us have the capacity to upload it to English Wikisource and everyone else can go and work out their own requirements, and when they do, then we can migrate it to Commons.

Billinghurst added a comment to T285130: create "upload shared" group at English Wikisource.

Is there more that needs to be done to get this undertaken? Any questions? Any problems. It seems a fairly simple request, has the consensus of our community as a needed group/role. Thanks.

@Johan I think that there would be value in mentioning this in a Tech News as it has value in that broader level announcement for the Wikimedia sisters.
