Mahir256 added a comment to T193962: Allow use of system fonts for languages with wildcards in font.ini language lists.

In the lists in the linked JavaScript file for "bn" and "bpy", the entry for "system" is not present (unlike, say, in the lists for "af" and "ang"), and so by default pages are not rendered using the system font for non-logged-in users on bnwikisource, instead using the Siyam Rupali font by default since it is the first and only font in that list. This task was to rectify this situation so that system fonts would still render by default for non-logged-in users for such languages whose font.ini lists contain wildcards (the * symbol).

Mahir256 added a comment to T250552: Search for "singu" doesn't find "singular" when searching for grammatical features.

This seems to be part of a general problem of language fallback not working when searching for grammatical features. When using Bengali as the interface language, for example, searching for "singu" does not return "singular" as one might expect; one has to search for "একবচন" to get the same item.

Mahir256 added a comment to T272442: Add lexeme language codes ccp, ccp-beng, rhg-rohg.

In the case of Chakma, there are cases of resources, such as those hosted by https://github.com/kalpataruboiChakma/, using both the Bengali script and the Chakma script, between which maintaining correspondences in lemmata/forms with different representations would be useful. Having ccp unqualified (in line with the script used on Incubator) and ccp-beng as language codes would thus not be controversial in my view.

Not sure if this is an e-reader problem or a book problem.

I was referring to the former of these; the link to the dataset folder provided on that page used to have label/description/alias stats going back to March for various languages in CSV files as late as last week. Now that page doesn't load (which I can understand being the case right now), but the same folder now only has statistics in those CSV files going back to 28 September.

Mahir256 added a comment to T262967: Add lexeme language codes sat-olck, sat-latn, sat-beng, sat-orya.

I must agree with Bodhi here that having a code for sat-olck is still necessary as it is not guaranteed that Santali speakers outside of India will be able to read it. "Official" in India need not mean "official" in the other countries in which it is spoken, as a closer read of the article on the language should indicate. Besides, we already have separate language codes for a particular language and the scripts in which it is written, including the "default" (such as kk and kk-arab, kk-cyrl, kk-latn, or iu and ike-cans, ike-latn, and similarly for ks, ku, tg, and ug) so I don't see a problem with continuing this trend in the interest of preventing ambiguity.

Mahir256 added a comment to T262330: Add lexeme language codes ja-hira, ja-kana, ja-hrkt.

@Amire80 To my knowledge it is not mandated anywhere that all variants of the representation of a lexeme lemma/form must use Q number private use subtags, but rather such uses are possible if other existing subtags within BCP47 cannot adequately indicate the necessary differences. The indication of Japanese written in different scripts can already be done with the BCP47 script subtag, so (¡¡¡)within the scope of language codes(!!!) the items I mentioned which are currently being used for those indications are redundant. Also, as I noted above, the distinction between kyujitai and shinjitai does not lend itself to a non-private-use indicator within the set of possible "ja" language tags, so this task is not meant to discourage the use of those private use subtags in that case.

To find the number of labels in a specific languages, you can use ElasticSearch: https://www.wikidata.org/w/index.php?search=haslabel%3Abn though this will not work in aliases.

This does not yield a number that I would expect; for a language like Khowar (khw), which is not updated frequently (or at all?) on Wikidata, I obtained a number close to 270k when searching "haslabel:khw" today, which compared to the numbers in this table for that language doesn't make much sense.

Mahir256 updated subscribers of T208425: [EPIC] Kill the wb_terms table.

I have a query, https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/18763, that returns label/description/alias statistics for a set of languages (also mentioned in T197161#4300061). This was derived from a query used by @Pasleim to update this table (which worked until the end of May) and its South Asian counterpart (which worked up until wb_terms updates got turned off). I tried to rewrite the Quarry query to use the new databases (https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/41692), but running this has not yet succeeded, either using Quarry or directly on tools-login. I am not sure whether this rewritten query can be simplified beyond what's written at present, so I was hoping there might be a better way of obtaining these statistics via SQL that does not presently time out.

The use of the API works up to a point. I am noticing that for GeoJSON files at or above 250KB I'm getting read timeouts when using Pywikibot. Any way to get past those errors?

So somehow @Sic19 managed to circumvent the size limit check with "Data:Canada/Nunavut.map" (I suppose AWB is old enough that it's not sensitive to the workings of tabular data). Is there a way to make the size limit check apply to the compacted data?

Mahir256 added a comment to T236593: Cannot enter multiple forms for the same language variant.

As a note, this is desperately needed for a number of Indian languages (including Bengali) in which the standardization of spellings according to one standard or another does not preclude other spellings from being considered acceptable (even in the absence of some characteristic unifying the alternative spellings).

Mahir256 added a comment to T153878: Investigate how to increase data limit for graphs.

32 months later, @Yurik, what's the status regarding implementing a new storage architecture for datasets (assuming that a stopgap measure such as uploading JSON in compact formats is somehow not tenable)? T200968 has officially opened up the floodgates for the upload of larger datasets, but there is still the issue, even when one does split up the data into discrete chunks, of overshooting this 2MB limit. Take, for example, the boundaries of https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q338425 : how does one properly split the data up into small chunks when the borders of its constituent elements (which I'm sure people would upload separately if those constituent element borders formed a partition (set theory) of the district) are not known?

Mahir256 added a comment to T226764: Figure out where can be local uploads disabled for wikis that were in commonsuploads.dblist, but the config didn't apply to them.

[T]he purpose of local uploads in your wiki is to upload files that are free under local law, but aren't free under U.S. law. That seems to violate the licensing policy, which says that an EDP must be in accordance with both local and U.S. law.

The bug, if there is any, is in GeoNames or in wherever else @Lsj's bot obtains its geographic information. Ultimately it must be corrected there or there is still a risk of reintroducing it to Wikidata.

Mahir256 added a comment to T185313: mw.wikibase.entity:getBacklinks (lua API in wikibase client).

This task seems similar to T199887, at least judging from the examples given in the task description (haswbstatement:P734=Q18390678 and haswbstatement:P171=Q127134).

Mahir256 updated subscribers of T199887: Client equivalent of haswbstatement.

To present a more concrete use case for such functionality, @debt, the infoboxes on articles for localities in India have slots listing the national/state-level parliamentary constituencies that they're located in along with the current representatives in those constituencies. These slots, which at one point were prefilled from Wikidata, no longer work since the misuses of P585 ("point in time") on the Wikidata items for those constituencies that allowed such information to be present have been removed. In the absence of a property linking a Wikidata item about a constituency to an election involving that constituency (to use the example of a national-level constituency in Kolkata, from Q3348171 to Q63988950), it would be helpful to obtain a list of items which link back to an item for a constituency via something akin to haswbstatement (in this case, to continue using the previous example, akin to haswbstatement:P1001=Q3348171) so that the most recent election information (from electorate size to successful candidates to numbers of spoilt votes, to name a few facts) could thus be obtained with a few more steps.

@ArielGlenn It appears that particle physics is a massively collaborative enterprise, so that the results presented in a single paper can have thousands of people behind them, all of whom are credited (hence the particularly large revision size).

https://quarry.wmflabs.org/query/28286 lists all pages in the Page: namespace below 500 bytes, in ascending order of page length (so that the shortest pages in the Page: namespace show up first). The commented lines, if uncommented, will list those pages that have already been proofread but not validated--this is presently based on links to the category "Proofread" rather than page properties, but I'm sure this can be fixed easily.

While I believe it is possible to get a list of such pages via Quarry queries, being able to view these within the special pages themselves would be quite helpful (and not just for the two aforementioned namespaces, and not just for Wikisources either).

I made the circular element for WikiProject India's regular logo (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:WikiProject_India_bars.svg) as a substitute for the chakra in the center of the Indian flag, and not initially in the interest of having a logo fit perfectly inside a circular frame. (The logo which is present on the account to which David linked is meant to represent a datathon running from the 21st to the 24th and will be substituted with the regular logo at the datathon's conclusion.)
