And those involved in the work around the European Parliament copyright vote, to make sure we don't cause problems for each other.
Probably not. But this is public, so let's list it here. In short, dealt with:
As @Cirdan and @MusikAnimal say, I think this could vary a lot from community to community. Anyone could present this information by scraping it if they really wanted, but going from there to an API to easily doing so is a different thing – especially if the WMF are the ones doing it, given our responsibilities when it comes to protecting Wikimedia editors. Like Cirdan, I think a use case would help the discussion. It wouldn't uncontroversial everywhere, presenting detailed information about how users spend their time here to the world in an accessible manner.

Just to make very sure I don't misunderstand anything: We're talking about the possibility of statistics and visualisation of the data that is already available if you look through someone's public edit history? I.e. the reason we wouldn't do this is sort of the same reason we don't build a user watchlist – it's public, but the problem is that we'd make it very easy for anyone to keep tabs on the behaviour of any given user?

@mark @akosiaris So what's going out to Monday is in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2018/35 which links to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/Server_switch_2018 (basically a copy of last year's message with relevant details changed). Please indicate if something is wrong or mistaken.
This has been flagged for potential inclusion in Tech News. How would you phrase it? Something like this?

Yeah, indicating a specific wiki as a source would be a good solution.
Would this default to the English meaning, then? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn is about an agricultural building. https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn is about children. If I write https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Barn, how is the software to determine which one to link to?

Short report written. Sent to Keegan for sanity check.
@Elitre No one is going to work on this for the foreseeable future. I'll write down my notes, in case someone wants them in the future, and close this task.
