I've been a Wikipedia editor since 2002 on the English Wikipedia and a few other Wikimedia projects. In May 2012, I joined the Wikimedia Foundation as a "product manager", initially for VisualEditor, the the Editing Team, and later the lead product manager for all contribution. In 2018, I moved to be a software engineer, working on reliability, infrastructure, developer tooling, and continuous integration and deployment.

My job is to help ensure that the tools we provide to our readers and contributors are the best the can be, in speed, correctness, consistency, utility, and reliability.

Checking now, all three of those messages seem to have the exact same content on translatewiki.net, in the repo, on bswiki, and on meta. Possibly this was just a train deployment issue, and was fixed as soon as Wikipedias ticked over to wmf.2?

Fixed by doing an action=purge on the file with an English locale. Might just be an old page cache issue from the roll out of testing code, or might be more systemic.

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T221017: 'Items depicts in this File' text sometimes in German.

File had been uploaded and edited by one user, who presumably has de as their user interface language. As every logged-in-user render of the page would have been into that user's language, it'd have been in German, but it's odd that that bit of the interface didn't uncache correctly when the rest did.

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T220632: For metrics which shouldn't change between runs (e.g. bytes transmitted), don't show "(± 0 B)".

Yeah, I expect all metrics to be capable of varying. Including response sizes, as they may have smart compression over HTTP/2 that can vary a bit within a session, as well as headers containing timestamps (e.g. Date), and within dynamic scripts or body as well (e.g. tokens).

The conundrum then becomes, what should Fresnel print if a metric that we thought would be consistent, wasn't? Probably still want to print the range in that case.

I think it's fair that if a metric doesn't output this bit, it's implied that there was no variability between runs. Sounds good to me. Less noise, more signal.

One thing though, I'd go for "didn't" instead of "shouldn't". E.g. generic handling in the printer based on what we've got, as opposed to declarative based on what a particular metric is expected to yield.
