I can confirm that this is impacting many projects. E.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:WantedPages and https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:WantedPages and https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:WantedPages haven't been updated since 2019-11-25 and the latter two claim that they will be updated every two weeks or so (en.wp has a huge warning that it's rarely updated).

Koavf added a comment to T228594: [phetools] Wikisource OCR deletes old contents of a page, but does not generate new text..

@Koavf It's not that simple. Hit me up on my enWS user talk page if you want the nitty gritty details. The short version is that Phe's OCR gadget (which is what this task is about, and which is what I assume you mean by the "default") is based on Tesseract, but that's not where the problem is: it's somewhere in the custom code Phe has written to provide the interface to Tesseract or its interaction with the server infrastructure on Toolforge.

Koavf added a comment to T228594: [phetools] Wikisource OCR deletes old contents of a page, but does not generate new text..

Fixing problems like this and maintaining tools is difficult. In this particular case, there is a very straightforward quick fix, which is to use Tesseract's OCR tool and replace the default one. It works very well and is not broken. I'm not sure if the developers are busy or are trying to make the perfect the enemy of the good or what but a really easy way to resolve this in (what I assume as someone who is not a Wikimedia developer) five minutes is to drag and drop Tesseract's tool into some folder on some server and overwrite the standard OCR that no longer works. Long-term solutions are good, the development team's time and expertise are precious, and protracted bugs that just end up with a lot of talking about talking don't help anyone, so this seems like the best solution but I'm willing to admit my own ignorance if someone can come up with a better solution.

Aklapper had already pointed above a MediaWiki.org link which explains how the Phabricator priority system work: mw:Phabricator/Project_management#Setting_task_priorities.
Phabricator is a tool which allows developers to organize openly their work. They do not have to manage community here. You probably may engage discussions on Meta or on your wiki village pump, eventually pinging a Community Liaisons member to express your priority wishes.

Koavf added a comment to T228594: [phetools] Wikisource OCR deletes old contents of a page, but does not generate new text..

At the risk of sounding condescending, this *is* fundamental to Wikisource. While some sources are digital-native, the majority of what Wikisource is is transcription of print sources and that is impossible without the ProofreadPage which relies on an OCR scan to reduce easily between 30 and 90% of the workload, depending on the source. Again, if what you need is a quick fix to descalate this, just make the Tesseract OCR scan the actual tool in Wikisource and we can sort out the details of a best practice later. This needs to be fixed ASAP.

Second this. test.wikiquote.org would be helpful.

Koavf added a comment to T54971: [Goal] Sitelinks and arbitrary accesses to Incubator, OldWikisource and BetaWikiversity.

beta.wv shouldn't exist--it's entirely redundant to Incubator. mul.ws actually hosts some multilingual works which makes it inherently different from any other WMF project. Some things will never "graduate" from mul.ws to a new domain so we need to have a method to link to it.

Koavf added a comment to T28269: Allow uploading of .swf (flash) files to commons.

Sure but it can serve as an archive of older files. No one is making new Flash and no one should have made Flash back in the day but preserving some of this content can be valuable.

Koavf updated subscribers of T28269: Allow uploading of .swf (flash) files to commons.

The Wikimedia board of trustees had made it clear that there will be no Flash on Wikimedia sites. In addition to unfreeness, this file format is inherently unsafe.

Yes, what Candalua said should happen. mul.ws/wiki/foo should redirect to ws/wiki/foo not just the main page.

I don't think anyone at incubator or beta.wv is *opposed* to this.

Koavf added a comment to T202794: Many more languages need to be added to Multilingual Wikisource (mul.ws).

If there is a standard Names.php deployed to most WMF projects, it would need to be greatly expanded at mul.ws--that is the only project that is intended to host multilingual content (with Commons, Data, and Species being presumably language-agnostic repositories) and that also includes very small languages that will never have content elsewhere. In fact, some of the content there may not be linguistic at all, so we need to have the four special codes listed above and possibly even the private use area to define if that's an option.

Koavf added a comment to T110190: Rename "simple" wikis to "en-simple".

It would be nice if it were folded into en.wp for many reasons but I think there is simply too much inertia for that to happen. This task should assume that the third proposal to close it will fail like the first two.
