Mahir256 added a comment to T309317: Investigate why the function editor, object editor, function viewer, and object viewer are all broken on https://wikifunctions.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Z10005.

(Perhaps being tired of my complaints raised in another forum led to the dearth of detail in the initial task description, but...)

  • What is broken?

When I click "edit source" on that page, and I type "Z10004" into the dropdown next to "value" for the field whose label is "catena" and save, the field's type changes from "Reference^(String)" to "Reference^(Reference)", rather than to "Reference^(Catena)" as I would expect.

  • Is there any indication it is specific to Beta cluster? (i.e. does the same workflow work as expected in a dev environment?)

The type creation interface on notwikilambda.toolforge.org is broken, since on adding fields to a type in the CreateZObject page there I am not prompted to name these fields nor shown the ID (Z12345K2 etc.) that they would have, so I have no clue as to this point.

Mahir256 added a comment to T285610: Pages corresponding to tables of contents' second links are not provided the first link as the "prev" parameter for headers generated with <pages>.

I am a bit scared of linking to the first page if the current page is not in the toc.

I must agree with Xover's comment regarding the provision of a next link on a main page. While attempting to provide such a link using JavaScript and the mw.Api may be possible, I do not think that it is necessarily the most efficient use of resources when loading a Wikisource page, given that each time a page is loaded the table of contents portion of an index needs to be rendered again (meaning after ProofreadPage does so once) to determine which link to add. (The alternative would be to add the next link manually to the page, which does not fully comport with the underlying motivation behind this task.)

We have an as-yet unused "Query:" namespace ; perhaps it could be opened for storing queries longer than 2000 characters? (A redirection mechanism such that a visit to any page in that namespace takes you to query.wikidata.org might be useful, and there ought to be a system, similar to what is done with CSS pages, that ensures that a query is syntactically correct before it can be saved to that namespace.)

[I]f someone wanted to add the "same" label value on a different language, should that trigger a validation error? I can imagine that would potentially disrupt bots who copy labels, but maybe that's not a bad thing if the goal is cleanup.

Yes, one of the goals is item cleanup, so such an error should be triggered.

Mahir256 added a comment to T285156: Add termbox language code mul.

So, mul is kind of the right code for that in general, but it's still a special case, and I'm wondering whether it's right to use it as usual aliases and labels. Can't it be a kind of an extra field in the data model, or a property, like "multilingual name" or "universal name"? Using just a language code for this sounds like a bit of a hack that can backfire.

I'd be interested to learn of a situation in which the addition of a label in this code with the intent described would cause things to backfire.

Are any of these actually useful?

This task is not intended to answer this question; since someone has found it useful to have access to this specific string in every language, using 'mul' is a more efficient way to address that.

Wikipedia disambiguation pages are handled very badly in general on Wikidata. It requires real structure and not a language code hack.

Can you elaborate of what's not "real" about the mul code with respect to disambiguation pages? While I'm sure there's much to improve for that category of item, that's not necessarily an argument against the introduction of this code for other purposes demonstrated.

This sounds like the right behavior. What if in some language the label was different? Asking seriously.

If the label in some other language is different from the "mul" one, then there's absolutely no harm for another language to add a different label. With respect to astronomical objects, on the typical multi-labeled item, only the Bengali label (and the Malayalam one, if it exists) is different from the rest, and thus would be preserved in the presence of a "mul" code; all others, being identical to that of the "mul" code, would be eliminated. (Again, if later one of those languages needs a different label from that of the 'mul' code, it is free to add that different label, and not the same one.)

As with the galaxy, it doesn't look wrong.

See the argument re: galaxies.

Mahir256 updated subscribers of T285610: Pages corresponding to tables of contents' second links are not provided the first link as the "prev" parameter for headers generated with <pages>.

The relevant piece of logic which this task considers was introduced in this commit, three years before Wikidata's launch and thus three years before the idea of pulling in information for an index page would have been conceived. We on the Bengali Wikisource, in the interest of modernizing the functionality of our site beyond the old days of direct {{header}} use and pre-Scribunto capabilities, are trying to embrace the benefits that Wikidata provides to the extent that it can support the metadata of index pages, and this necessarily extends from the slow discontinuation of certain index fields to the integration of their replacements in main namespace pages, in addition to the sometimes semi-automatic maintenance of some other namespaces. I can accept that such an attitude as we espouse may be foreign and uncomfortable to certain Wikisourcerors, but that doesn't mean that the software—which I feel the need to assert we wish to share with those Wikisourcerors—should continue to hold other communities back (or that the effort to defend what's being requested in this task is misplaced).

Is there any particular reason why you can't add a link to the mainspace page where the work is transcluded to one of the other index fields and use a dedicated field for the QID?

We are using the "wikidata-item" field as the dedicated field for the Qid. As (implied, maybe should have been expressed better?) in the sentence following that to which you replied, a link to where the work is transcluded would have been the use for the "title" field before, but that link has been migrated to a sitelink on a Wikidata item, which can be retrieved using Lua's mw.wikibase functionality, thus making it redundant to retain it in the index page.

that would require a better definition of what the actual problem with the current behaviour is

As part of an effort to increase integration of the Bengali Wikisource with Wikidata, we have begun migrating most information within index pages that can be migrated to Wikidata items. As a result, the only free-text field in ProofreadPage that is frequently non-empty before the pagelist is the "wikidata-item" field, holding the Qid of the work's item. The "wikidata-item" field is used directly within our implementations of "Module:Header template" and "MediaWiki:Proofreadpage index template" in retrieving the migrated information for display in the appropriate places. Turning that field into a link makes processing it, even if it's merely a matter of stripping the link syntax, just a bit more complicated than it needs to be. If the information above the pagelist field is already on the Wikidata item, then adding a link to any of the fields above the pagelist becomes redundant.

and some sketch of a hypothetical better solution.

The simple fix I propose is a direct solution to the problem and to the extent I am aware of would not adversely affect most other generated headers. (I'd be interested in seeing where an adverse effect might occur, if at all.)

putting a wikilink in the উইকিউপাত্ত আইটেম field should fix it.

Yes, I'm aware that throwing in an extra link is one way to sidestep the issue, but I wonder if the underlying assumption is worth hardcoding in the extension at all.

I have been semi-regularly migrating occasional additions of labels/descriptions/aliases in the languages codes noted in my original comment since that comment, in addition to an "no" to "nb" migration with @jhsoby's approval. The sooner these codes can be disallowed, the less work this will be for everyone.

While I am not opposed to this language code request, @FrancisTyers, I do wonder what plans you have for this lexeme language code and the others you have requested, given that as yet you have not made any edits in the realm of lexicographical data on Wikidata in *any* language (as part of a general absence from Wikidata to speak of) and have not noted anyone who is planning to work with these languages.

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).
