MarkTraceur added a comment to T290462: Certain TIFF files get no thumbnail and misidentified dimensions ("0 × 0 pixels") and number of pages (0 pages).

Yeah, as mentioned above, I don't think the Structured Data team has the requisite expertise to handle this, especially given our reduced capacity - I believe even the 10 days estimate above proved to be overly optimistic. It's always sad for me to say that we can't help out when Commons, or media support in general, has an issue, but at the moment I don't believe we can do anything. Possible that someone with more experience debugging Swift, or working with it, might be able to do something.

Managed to find that, at least on simple.wikipedia.org, the URL in question is "/beacon/media", which is being passed into the mw.Uri constructor unmolested. Not terribly ideal, so I suppose we should de-relativize it before passing it into mw.Uri. Might be a nice-to-have if mw.Uri handled relative URLs in the future but I think hardly a necessity.

Notes from a quick perusal of logstash: ~60 of these errors in the past 7 days, so not exactly a universal occurrence but not completely uncommon either. Unclear what effect this might have on the UI or if the users were able to circumvent the error somehow...in any case, I suspect this is something changing somewhere upstream and us needing to update the UW code. I feel like we've seen this bug before as well, but can't recall what exactly the issue was.

The maintenance of Formerly-Multimedia™ components is an ongoing issue for the Structured Data team and, realistically, everyone - see T240281 - but we're starting to work through and prioritize some of those components as we have the capacity. Sadly, most of our expertise on the SD team is not in the multimedia components which makes it difficult for us to prioritize and diagnose, much less actually fix, these bugs.

Huh. So I'm slowly working my way backwards in time through the untriaged bugs, and this (being the third similar issue reported that I've seen so far) seems like it may just be a general bug across our upload error/warning handlers, or possibly in the message system. The code looks good on first glance, and I haven't found any big "DEPRECATION/BREAKING CHANGE" emails about jqueryMsg or mw.Message#parse yet, so I assume these things are still fine, and there's just a problem with the way we're using them in UploadWizard.

MarkTraceur added a comment to T256616: Improve UploadWizard's usability for third parties.

Very personal opinion: Wikimedia by assuming this tool would not be useful to anyone outside Commons made a huge mistake and went against the very philosophy it was supposed to promote. UploadWizard in particular should be a poster child of WMF's efforts to promote free culture and crediting the creators of multimedia. It's very sad to me to see such attitude. It's absolutely not personal (you are 100% right), I'm just complaining about WMF's decisions and their consequences here.

Marking as low priority mostly due to the small amount of time available to work on UW, but also because this seems to be a poorly-defined issue that may take a significant amount of time to properly diagnose. If we get more information about the file that failed, any errors/warnings in the console, etc. maybe we can revisit this. Though also if this is an isolated incident, it hardly seems "(un)usable" at least in the majority of cases, so without further reports, the priority may stay where it is.

MarkTraceur triaged T251582: Users do not get additional warning on Special:UploadWizard when required fields are not in their viewport as Low priority.

I don't believe any of the fields in the Structured Data step are required, hence there are no warnings or errors. We could detect if people have visited each file in the sequence, perhaps, and warn them if they try to publish before having done so? Or maybe change the publish button to cycle to the next file? Anyway, given these aren't required fields, and we know there are people who don't want to fill out this data in UploadWizard, I have trouble seeing a pressing need for a fix, hence low priority.

MarkTraceur triaged T252326: Upload Wizard "copy information to all uploads" auto numbering system not working properly as Low priority.

Marking as low priority given the current policy on UploadWizard work - though I wonder if this could be marked as easy given it is likely a relatively simple change to the matching logic?

MarkTraceur triaged T254149: upload-wizard_tests.py does not work with Python3 as Low priority.

Thanks for the patch! Given our pseudo-SLA this likely won't get immediate attention, so marking as low priority.

MarkTraceur triaged T255361: Special:UploadWizard should have option for uploading from a URL like Special:Upload as Low priority.

Marking as low priority given a need for more clarity around the request and the maintenance status of the extension right now.

MarkTraceur added a comment to T252543: MMV test failures.

FYI to anyone taking up this task: The failures seem to be related to a change some time ago that runs tests in the qqx language instead of en. The fix should be as simple as going to each failing test and changing the expected value to use the new output (as, it appears, nothing is *really* broken).

MarkTraceur added a comment to T226250: Graph not displayed if linked to a wikidata query.

@Lea_Lacroix_WMDE work is ongoing to ensure that the frontend-only version of the extension will work as expected (read: minimal regressions). Our rough timeline seems to be 3-4 weeks, depending on staff capacity. Once that work is done (and Graphoid is de-deployed) we may continue by triaging and focusing on some of these bugs.

MarkTraceur updated subscribers of T245681: Odd characters appearing before qualifier values.

Ramsey nerd-sniped me with this, so I dug briefly and found a Windows-specific bug which seemed on point. Initially when talking with him I thought it might be a random space character trailing a line in our output HTML, but I then found that at src/View/MediaInfoEntityStatementsView.php:371, we explicitly add the line separator character, which seems out of place here. From the Unicode docs:

MarkTraceur updated subscribers of T240698: Upload Wizard failing on multiple uploads on Commons: "Unknown error. "$1"." / TypeError: upload.ui.clearIndicator is not a function.

Based on some (very) brief git archaeology, @Esanders made commit eb978f9fd3450b11e76bce6c2612b831f7e52960 which removed the clearIndicator method, which suggests he may be best able to remove the only remaining call to it when he gets a chance (and replace it with something analogous, if necessary).
