Dinoguy1000 updated subscribers of T271418: Archive the Tabber extension.

Tabber hasn't seen any commits or other maintainer activity on GitLab since 2019, and Gamepedia's version/fork is probably no longer in use on Gamepedia since some time after GP's acquisition by Fandom (around whenever the unified skin was rolled out across both farms). This strongly suggests that the public version(s) of Tabber is now unmaintained (Fandom's version of Tabber, which is presumably still being maintained, is no longer publicly available AFAIK). @Alexia noted over a year ago that they no longer maintain Tabber (or several other extensions), meaning that there are currently no active maintainers listed for it, either.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T298416: Support for rendering to HTML of pages as stored in Wikipedia dumps.

I'm not sure what exactly you mean by "file data", but if you're talking about the actual uploaded files being embedded in rendered pages, note that these are not included in the XML dumps (otherwise the dump files would be much, much larger than they are now). Currently dumps of media files are not publicly available like dumps of page contents are (T298394), though the first step towards that has been taken with the resolution of T262668. Note however, that even when that gets resolved, there still won't be dumps corresponding to the state of uploaded files for WMF projects for old page content dumps, so in practice it will never be possible to accurately reconstruct old articles purely from dump files, with certainty for that accuracy (ignoring of course differences in parser behavior between when the dump was made and today).

@cscott Do you have any links handy related to the SMW community's switch to parser function syntax for semantic annotations? I help manage a wiki that makes heavy use of SMW, and if that's the future direction of the extension(s), we'd like to know ASAP so we can start working on transitioning ourselves.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T254646: Reconsidering how we name things.

@Dinoguy1000 I don't think you should do that- "SHOW REPLICA STATUS"; is not a valid mariadb command, "SHOW SLAVE STATUS" is the working command that has to be sent- we don't have a choice on that. I think you should file an upstream bug instead to mariadb to ask to rename the command, but otherwise those kind of edits would be confusing (they are not names we can chose to change- yet, unlike other identifiers).

In general, Ext:Variables is incredibly useful for optimizing page performance when using SMW/Cargo, since it allows query results to be cached and reused. This isn't something that comes up constantly, but it happens often enough to have a sitewide impact for us on Yugipedia.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T284921: Remove "auto-number headings" preference.

It seems from the last few comments that the general attitude here has turned towards a pure-CSS/JS solution if this feature is kept in any way, but if it's actually still up in the air, I just wanted to point out that the data-* solution should probably use an mw- prefix (i.e. data-mw-tocnumber or what-have-you), to reduce the chances of conflicts with data-* attributes being used on-wiki (this also mirrors the same being done with MediaWiki-side class names these days AFAIK).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T206691: Rename html5shiv to html5shim.

No idea; I don't know if it's actually still in use either. If not, then obviously this task is unnecessary and can be reclosed.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T71445: Implement a sane code-review process for MediaWiki JS/CSS pages on Wikimedia sites.

I'm not keen on the amount of work left in the hands of the merging interface admin in your proposal, @DannyS712. In particular, for an extension it should be possible to mark the forked pages as forks and indicate what page they're forked from, and have some mechanism to mark a particular revision as approved, at which point the special page could pull most of the required info automatically from the fork when an iadmin merges it back in. If it's a concern, the special page could allow certain fields to be modified pre-merge (e.g. tweaking the summary), but in general I feel much more comfortable not requiring the iadmin to manually copy so much (less chance for errors to creep in, etc).

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T193085: Ability to edit with unread messages.

Users who are "not idiots" could probably find a better workflow to manage their messages than read/unread.

They could. But they don’t necessarily want. Forcing workflows on users is not a particularly user-friendly software design. I am most effective if I keep the new message indicator until I actually take the actions requested there. If a software doesn’t let me do it, then either I don’t use it, or I fork it and get rid of the whole talk message notification feature. I won’t find a “better” workflow, because this is the best one for me, no matter what you think.

Maybe put out a call on mediawiki-l to see if anyone uses this functionality before we get deprecate it?

Dinoguy1000 reopened T206691: Rename html5shiv to html5shim as "Open".

In light of T254646, I believe this should be revisited. The problem with "shiv" is that it immediately evokes imagery of violence. At least in the US, it might also be considered a microaggression against people of color, given the gross racial imbalance in US prisons compared with the general population. Even if this isn't true, WMF projects purport to be inclusive of everyone, which includes current and former prisoners, for whom "shiv" is likely to be an unpleasant reminder of their experiences in the system.

Dinoguy1000 added a comment to T58063: Enotif notification emails in some languages have excess unneeded newlines (due to wordwrap counting bytes instead of characters).

@Jony the people who are members of the MediaWiki-Email project are not automatically the best people to actually work on tasks; I'm personally a member for my own tracking purposes, and don't do any MediaWiki development work myself (beyond occasionally filing or commenting on Phab tasks).

"Not so many users are aware of a workaround like this" is only a social problem, so I oppose any technical solution.

The same thing happens if you use <noinclude/> instead of a comment, with the same HTML output. Probably it would also happen this way with <includeonly/> and <onlyinclude/>, though I didn't test these.

I'd still like support for multiple tasks, but I don't think that should block. As is, it looks fine.
