For information I added the tag Operations only because it was present on the template present on the parent task : T169440 (the "Click Here" link). If it's not needed anymore, the template should be updated.

Linedwell added a comment to T75534: IWM: missing language in family causes exception in Page.langlinks.

Well in the case of vikidia it assumes that the language code 'de' is a part of the family, but the Special:Interwiki page reveals that it's actually another wiki (http://grundschulwiki.zum.de/wiki/Hauptseite , although I don't know if they are affiliated): http://en.vikidia.org/wiki/Special:Interwiki

And the mainpage of the English Vikidia shows an interwiki link to 'de:': http://en.vikidia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&action=edit

I'm not sure what the solution there is, because it seems like a method which analyses it without any prior checking. The most flexible way would be to use 'APISite.interwiki()' which would tell that there is no family for grundschulwiki.zum.de.

Linedwell added a comment to T164204: Let stewardbot display temporary rightchanges too.

As I said in T164204#3334618, the bot's code cannot be updated while the RC feed doesn't mention the expiration date of rights (the bot cannot guess it if the feed doesn't mention it). Once T167568 closed, we will be able to update the bot code.

Linedwell added a comment to T169463: [script request] Have a tab to quickly access CentralAuth/GlobalBlock from userpages on any wiki.

@MarcoAurelio The script have been updated (and will need to be renamed due to the change of its features). Is this what you wanted ? It now gives a CentralAuth/GlobalBlock link in both Special:Contributions and Userpage.

Linedwell added a comment to T169463: [script request] Have a tab to quickly access CentralAuth/GlobalBlock from userpages on any wiki.

I'm not sure that modifying the Core Mediawiki code is recommended. Indeed, such change is only relevant on Wikimedia wikis, but the Core code is intended to be also used on third part wikis, where AbuseFilter/CA/GB aren't meant to be linked. Am I wrong ?
I'll try to improve the script in the next days to add link to userpages too.

Linedwell added a comment to T164204: Let stewardbot display temporary rightchanges too.

I made some tries this morning and it seems that it isn't yet possible. StewardBot gets his informations from the RC feed on #meta.wikimedia@irc.wikimedia.org and this feed doesn't mention yet the expiracy of the permission (My try with an expiracy of 1 day gives: [[Special:Log/rights]] rights * Linedwell * changed group membership for User:Linedwell@testwiki from (none) to autopatrolled: test forStewardBot update exactly the same log as a permanent permission change). When the RC feed will mention it, I will be able to submit a patch to allow StewardBot to take this value into account.

Linedwell added a comment to T152793: Fix namespaces in ca.wikiquote.

@Dereckson I think using vd: for Vikidia links is more relevant than using it for just one namespace redirection on a single project, Vikidia exists in 8 languages and so could be usefull more globally than a local namespace redirect. Furthermore, all Vikidia versions could be reached with the single vd: interlink (i.e. using Vikidia's interwiki table, vd:ca: would redirect to the catalan Vikidia)
