Yesterday

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T153107: Parsoid is generating [[Foo|Foo]] instead of [[Foo]] for some VE edits.
  • If I edit some content, I want it to serialise the same as the original (so retain IDs to make that happen).
  • If I copy some content, I want it to serialise the same as the original (so copy across IDs to make that happen).
  • If I move some content, I want it to serialise the same as the original (so copy across IDs to make that happen).

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T153107: Parsoid is generating [[Foo|Foo]] instead of [[Foo]] for some VE edits.

Do we know if it's an internal copy vs. an internal cut? We have to keep the id otherwise we'd force reserialisation, I thought?

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T130434: Break up TextInputWidget.

Per my comments on the bug I think there is a case for having multiline as a flag so it can be used with other sub-types.

Have we started using multiline text inputs anywhere in the last 6 months? Do you think we still need them? If yes, lets abandon that patch and revise this task.
