Jdforrester (WMF)

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 T197450: test.wp is using test2.wp's message cache.

Has someone tried running a full scap? I'm not sure if l10nupdate is enough (but I don't understand exactly what the difference is)

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T192623: ResourceLoader 2018 Review.

I think the legacy "mediawiki.api.*" modules should be removed later than in MediaWiki 1.33.

The current LTS, MediaWiki 1.31, only supports the legacy modules, so I think we should support both modules systems (i.e. merged modules, and submodules with deprecation warnings) until the next LTS, on which we could make the removal of legacy submodules.

If wgULSAnonCanChangeLanguage and wgULSLanguageDetection are both true, yes. However, I'm proposing that this should be in core (and enabled).

Should we retitle this bug to something like "RequestContext::getLanguage() in core should use Accept-Language when determining the language for anons", with it being used whenever "uselang" isn't provided, instead of requesting a "uselangs" parameter specific to the API?

Jdforrester-WMF changed the status of T197170: Centralise visual editor feedback on the English Wikipedia so that it goes to mediawiki.org from Open to Stalled.

Ah, right. Unfortunately, the English Wikipedia community didn't want the feedback centralised to MediaWiki.org the last time this was discussed, but that consensus might have changed. However, for now I'll mark this as Stalled until there's some evidence the appetite has changed. :-)

Jdforrester-WMF added a comment to T106990: Provide a wikitext mechanism to add <meta> tags to the page's <head> element.

Re-titled to represent the actual request here; wgAllowMicrodataAttributes has been true (and ignored) since REL1_27. Currently the Parser's sanitiser allows 'meta' => [ 'itemprop', 'content' ] only; there's nothing specific to Wikimedia wikis yet.
