MarkTraceur added a comment to T177022: Add an API module for querying MediaInfo entities by file page title.

OK, I think I have the lookup services mostly written (probably some PHP wiring that I'm not quite perfect on, will deal with details during testing), but I'm a little unclear how I'm meant to hook those up to the existing API module in Wikibase. I obviously can't put MediaInfo-specific code in there, but I'm also not sure if there's already a generalized way to say "for whatever entity type/namespace got passed in, determine the ID or title lookup service, call it with whatever information we have, and return the result", so I'll go into a documentation hole now but if you all have a faster answer I'd love to hear it.

MarkTraceur assigned T177161: Please remove Custom License Marker from Commons Upload Wizard to Ramsey-WMF.

"Consensus" is a strong word for a discussion between three people, of whom two "voted" for the change. This would not just remove the template transclusion on new files, but stop any user from using a custom license on any upload, greatly reducing the usefulness of the tool (as evidenced by the 500k+ files that use this template) - I'm not convinced this is the way to go, but I'm not the only voice in this discussion anyway.

We don't have any further work to do on this unless someone comes back and asks us to do more analysis, so I think tracking would maybe be appropriate, but it also might be fine to straight up resolve this task (as we've done our work, and despite being called out, Performance has not chimed in)

I've never requested read-only time before, is it appreciably more complex than e-mailing @greg and telling him what's up?

MarkTraceur added a comment to T175602: Check performance after increasing upload limit.

I just uploaded 490 (small) files locally, and while it was a pain to wait for the file interfaces to load in the details step (because I loaded them all at once), I don't think that's a *huge* issue. For the record it probably took 30-60 minutes to complete the entire process with 490 files and the "copy details" pipeline. I imagine in the case of someone uploading a bunch of files for which they must enter descriptions for each one, it will be a little less painful to wait (because there will be active work to do in the meantime), and the performance problems won't be so troublesome.

MarkTraceur added a comment to T174914: UploadCampaign sometimes use old autoAdd configuration.

Hi @JeanFred - I can't think of any reason why this might be happening. The cache should be cleared when the configuration changes. The best explanation that I can come up with is that some users are leaving their UploadWizard pages open, waiting for Wiki Loves Monuments to start, and then uploading images with the old configuration. However, that's not possible, because at least one of the users who uploaded to the category was created *after* the change. So I guess I would like to know a little more about what happened in the upload sessions, though this does seem to be related to the aforementioned issues with template caching...so I guess I get to take another whack at that issue.

MarkTraceur closed T160185: Package 3d2png for deployment to WMF servers as Resolved.

We have finished everything we need ahead of enabling 3D on the production cluster, so I think this is set.

MarkTraceur closed T156135: Audio WebM file marked as MEDIATYPE_VIDEO as Resolved.

Since the patch was merged that detects these files, I think this bug could get closed...if a maintenance script for fixing files is desired, we can open a new task.

MarkTraceur added a comment to T172832: Investigate use-cases for delayed job executions.

Multimedia probably needs this for thumbnail/convert/rotate/other media manipulation queues, though we haven't really worked with those systems as a team in the past. Something to keep in mind (unless I've misunderstood what's being discussed here)

@ABorbaWMF negative, the 3d2png changes aren't deployed yet. I think any thumbnails currently present on beta are from old code, and cannot be trusted. T170444 will allow us to test with the new code, but isn't fixed yet.

MarkTraceur lowered the priority of T123582: Use "preconnect" resource hint for thumbnail host from High to Normal.

@Krinkle - we could take a look at this at some point in the future, but I don't think it will happen soon. We have big projects in the making, and a hiring backlog that's made us fairly slow. Moving on our workboard and lowering the priority accordingly.
