Cross posted from enWiki technical VP:
This is a totally reasonable thing to request as better maps on Wikipedia could improve the user experience and would make a lot of people happy. Previously, we had internally decided on a process to enable mapframe for new Wikipedia projects by request on a batch basis every 6 months. However, the future of maps support from the Wikimedia Foundation is uncertain and at this point I think all new communities considering adding maps should be made aware of it.

Thanks! @mpopov Super interesting. I was kind of expecting a bigger jump.

^ oh great! the next one on the list is mediaviewer and this needs to stay for the time being. A new multimedia PM should be coming on board soon and I think one of their early actions will need to be to understand current and historical mediaviewer behavior
pinging @Halfak, @Neil_P._Quinn_WMF @Jdforrester-WMF: Can we delete this table: PageContentSaveComplete_5588433_1542324? It is 457.22 gb and as impossible as it sounds, we are running out of space to store event logging.
@elukey @Nuria my query is either failing or returning no results due to an error in the logic. My querying skills may have atrophied or the table may have gotten too big to query. All I know is that the query stopped running and the file it was supposed to populate is empty. Until this (see below) query is completed I think we should keep the table (hive is not ideal but okay).

@Tbayer Thanks for the heads up. If @ovasileva doesn't need it I think we're good, but I just started a query to get the primary historical data--it's so much juicy historical data, it would be a shame to lose the high level numbers over time.

@Tbayer French is special in that they have a separate box, not related to WMF"s "sister search" (which, if you scroll down on FR) remains on the bottom. It shows up on desktop too.

@TheDJ Thanks for the response. I like the icon look of your gadget, but more importantly, it sounds like the blockers were more about drag and friction than violent opposition to sidebar change :)

Thank you for the fast turnaround, @Elitre and translators!!

@TheDJ Congratulations on this being resolved. Once we started looking at printing for the OCG sunsetting, this was one of the first head-scratchy features I noticed. I also thought it would be trivial to fix. Judging from this ticket it took almost 3 years! Why do you think it took that long? I'm not criticizing, I am just generally curious. A fantasy I have is to remove or replace these hyperlinks with icons....is that the craziest thing you ever heard?

@Gilles I know we're going to chat about this next week, but in the interest of time, I'd like to separate out what I see as 2 separate issues.

My understanding is that the above that @ZhouZ wrote is insufficient for the 'book' use case. Is that true?

@Ottomata @Nuria Just spoke with @Nuria and between the above comments and our conversation I think I have what we need to figure out next steps....which are probably conversations with other folks like Dario and the discovery team. I really appreciate the work that went into exploring and communicating this.
Mar 6 2017
@Ottomata Thanks for voicing your uncertainty. I am also uncertain/confused about the cause (T87276), or the solution as it is a bit out of my technical depth, but it seems that there is a typo in webkit and I don't understand why we can't adjust for that typo.

@Moushira I'll work on the summary page. I think it's quieted down enough that we can put an expiration date on it. What time do you think is good?

@Jdlrobson all of the sharing tasks are organized hierarchically under this ticket T56829 under which I collected all the open-graph related tags under one other ticket: T142243 in August. That was my attempt at organizing them.
Jan 24 2017
agreed- it would also allow us to track over time because we wouldn't have
to do a 90 day rolling cleanup

@Moushira I just added this in an email, but need to document it here as well: This impacts many projects, not just wikipedia. Might be more important on wikibooks or wikivoyage, in fact. We will need to let those communities know about the consultation or even host a clone consultation there...

@Niedzielski yup! Thanks.

@Nuria @mforns I think having an alternative with the typo'd version makes a lot of sense. These metrics are used as a proxy for session depth and for our evaluation of traffic drivers to Wikipedia (source/external = % of visits) to name a few. It has already been 10 months of poisoned metrics and I don't like the idea of waiting until the browsers slowly and unpredictably change this. Aside from the time, it makes it impossible to know when we can trust the numbers again and for us to isolate the problem timeframe.
Dec 20 2016
Thank you for solving this mystery, @mforns. Is there anything we can do on our end to remedy this?

Just noting that fixing this will be an extra precaution against potential vandalism arising from wikidata description editing in Android app for communities with app usage, but not a lot of wikidata usage.

@mpopov can you share the query with us? I'm mostly curious and interested in replicating how you distinguish between desktop and mobile. Also can you confirm the sampling rate? My understanding was 1/200.

@JMinor for ^ what do you use for iOS?

@cscott an email bump caused me to just see your comment now- I apologize for the delay. I agree with you that up front communication is prefered and changed the description to be clearer that the final communication mentioned is simply the last communication (i.e. this thing we've been talking about is happening in 2 weeks). The primary consultation is intended to take place in April or May.
Nov 22 2016
@cscott @faidon Hey folks, I am looking at identifying the actual requirements for attribution of a pdf. I am setting up some time to go over this with @ZhouZ in legal next week, but it was suggested that a link to the article history was probably sufficient. Do you know where the cause/source of this requirement in the current OCG product came from? Emails/wiki pages/humans, etc would be a great output here.

No rush from my end. Be end of the quarter?
