I do not suggest this approach. What I suggested (since 2017) is a "virtual site" solution: You can add a sitelink to xyzwiki, which will automatically matched to (i.e. referred to) a subpage of Wp/xyz in Incubator. This also allow creating an production wiki without any change of existing sitelinks (i.e. you can switch what a sitelink refers to in configruation and all existing sitelinks will continue to work).

Bugreporter added a comment to T277505: Add Ojibwe (oj), to Names.php.

I believe, though I have not confirmed, that a quick fix would be to add these names to LocalNamesXX.php in the cldr extension.

Another, more complete fix, would be to bundle the IANA language tag registry names in the extension, giving English names to all defined language codes. This is as far as I know the same data the Babel extension is using as fallback.

For clarification, the purpose of my note:

  • "(text) table should be dropped" - which may still be used elsewhere (in other extensions) and migration is needed if we need to replace it with another storage.
  • such extensions (if exists) will make future insertions to text table (which will consume auto-increment) even if we no longer add new text rows on ordinal edits (i.e. content table will directly refer to ES addresses).

Yes according to T291332#7527840. And text as well (but that table should be dropped, long story)

Bugreporter added a comment to T305801: Dashboard for Incubator test wikis with activity stats.

This can be a Toolforge tool instead of (part of) an extension.

Bugreporter added a comment to T302189: Regularly purge orphaned sitelink, value and reference nodes.

Another possible workflow:
(1) once a sitelink/value/reference is unused it is put to a queue (deduplicated)
(2) use something like LDF to quickly filter out value or reference that is still used (no need to do this for sitelinks as one sitelink can only be used in one item) - we need to figure out how to do this once we no longer use Blazegraph
(3) remove if they are unused
(4) recheck

Bugreporter added a comment to T302189: Regularly purge orphaned sitelink, value and reference nodes.

A proposed workflow:

  1. using some queries to find all orphaned sitelink, value and reference nodes (and recording the IRIs)
  2. remove them from triplestore
  3. recheck if they are still unused and if they are not we need to add them back to the triplestore

Bugreporter added a comment to T302189: Regularly purge orphaned sitelink, value and reference nodes.

I don't think "once, twice or four times a year" is enough. If someone added sensitive information into Wikidata, we need to remove it as soon as possible.

Bugreporter added a comment to T304977: Option to remove translation pages from search results.

Firstly translation pages have English subpages; secondly even uncommon, it is possible for any page in any wiki to be in any languages and there is interface (Special:PageLanguage) to change it.
