I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects (see my personal account). In May 2012 I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as the "Product Manager" for the VisualEditor Team (now called the Editing-team). I'm now the Lead Product Manager for the Contributors-Team.

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T30856: Remove classic edit toolbar from core.

It's been shipped in the tarball for six(?) years now.

Yeah, it is to easy to install and invoke WikiEdior but this is not my point.

That's this task. It's mentioned in the task description.

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T206825: Get libraryupgrader's "npm audit fix" mode to a level where we feel comfortable letting it auto +2.

Thanks @Umherirrender, it'll take me some time to do follow-up but finding all the logs is really helpful.

From IRC:

[14:59:16] <Krinkle> legoktm: hm.. Looks like https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/mediawiki/extensions/NavigationTiming/+/466234/ libraryupgrader is changing space to tabs.
[14:59:54] <Krinkle> I don't particularly care which spacing we use, but it'll make tracing harder if it changes unintentionally. Afaik package.json wants 2 spaces, and is what npm will use when using install/update commands that auto-edit the file.

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T206143: Slow response of new preferences UI: Shows content of all tabs on a single page for a moment.

Yes, the load performance of this page was an existing problem before the UI standardisation conversion, and we discussed it as part of T203838 which improved the state to an acceptable level in our opinion compared to the previous state. It's not good, but this isn't specific to the "new" page. The only way to avoid this would be to paint the JS-ful and non-JS versions of the page entirely differently, which is pretty against MW conventions in terms of progressive enhancement.
