Multichill added a comment to T163642: Index Wikidata strings in statements for fulltext search.

@Smalyshev / @debt :I think this is one of those tasks where we have a bit of a misunderstanding about scope (see https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikidata/2018-August/012282.html ). Close this one as resolved and make clearly scoped follow up tasks to untangle this? :-)

Multichill added a comment to T200337: populate_adm_tree.php runs out of memory.

I don't think anything else is using it. I would check two weeks of logs to see if anything tried to use it and if not, just kill it.

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

Yup, had this too. In https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Campaign%3Apainting-pd-art-self&type=revision&diff=312102316&oldid=312090259 I fixed the license. This change didn't have any effect. I kept getting a broken message, see for example https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Jos%C3%A9_Garcia_Ramos_-_El_ni%C3%B1o_del_viol%C3%ADn.jpg where it still uses the old template. Later I did https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Campaign%3Apainting-pd-art-self&type=revision&diff=312135588&oldid=312102316 and that solved it almost instantly.

Multichill added projects to T102533: [Bug] Disallow (or resolve) dummy language codes.: I18n, MediaWiki-Internationalization.

I ran into this because I imported data with was tagged as "NOR" and is a valid ISO 639-2 language code that maps to the ISO 639-1 "no" language code, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwegian_language . Norwegian is a valid macro language, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_639_macrolanguage and wouldn't be the first macro language to include, we also have ar (Arabic) or ne (Nepali) as valid language codes.

@Multichill I think the point of this task were to index the statements, which is done. For searching, you can use haswbstatement for now. I am not sure whether it makes sense to copy the statement value into all field, where it would be then searchable by plain search too - may be useful for distinctive IDs but I am not sure how many of them are distinctive... I think it's better to make a separate task for this.

@Lea_Lacroix_WMDE Also, for newly edited items it should be working as soon as wmf.3 is deployed. But for older items it will need reindex.

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/427156/

This seems inherently broken, the noratelimit right exists for a reason. I'm not really sure how to work around this in MassMessage besides disabling rate limits I suppose?

Did I miss an announcement to wikitech-l/wikidata-tech that something like this was going to happen?

Multichill added a comment to T192869: Image link should link to Commons and not local file.

For me the image is a link to https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Douglas_adams_portrait_cropped.jpg and the link goes to the local page. No mediaviewer. Linking directly to Commons is something that most Wikipedia's have been doing for years to eliminate the extra local step.

Multichill updated subscribers of T192732: Rename pywikipedia to pywikibot on Toolforge.

I don't agree on renaming, that would break it for the users who use it. It's just a bunch of symlinks to /data/project/pywikibot/ anyway. What I would propose:

  • Change owner to tools.pywikibot for /shared/pywikipedia/ (now a big mix)
  • Link /shared/pywikibot to /data/project/pywikibot/public_html/core/
  • Leave a readme in /shared/pywikipedia/ to say it's deprecated and people should use /shared/pywikibot/

Multichill reopened T184948: limit page creation and edit rate on Wikidata as "Open".

I don't like this "solution" at all, this is more like a work around to prevent more incidents instead of solving the real problem. Re-opening because:

  • I don't see a link to where the documentation is updated on Wikidata. Probably https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Bots should be updated
  • How do I test this in a sandbox way to figure out my code handles this properly. For replag I can send a dummy value, but how do I do this here?
  • Third and most important: This is not a real solution, but a work around.

Multichill changed the status of T191192: Drop support for python 2.7.2 and 2.7.3 from Open to Stalled.

As in T154771 , we should wait a while before actually dropping it. Somewhere in the range 9-12 months is reasonable. Putting the task on stalled in the meantime.

Multichill added a comment to T99899: [Story] Looking up entities by external identifiers.

make the index assume the entries are distinct and unique, so when it encounters a second Wikidata item with the same external ID, it just overwrites it

Index can't do that unfortunately. I don't even think there's such thing as unique field in ElasticSearch - the only field that is unique is the document ID.

So if you have two items with the same external ID, the search will find them both. Now if you build some service on top of it (like special page) it can interpret the search results and resolve the collision. But I see no way to not have duplicates in the search index if they are in the data.

Multichill added a comment to T99899: [Story] Looking up entities by external identifiers.

Currently we have 2614 properties of type ExternalId of these properties 2260 properties have both the single and distinct constraint ( https://query.wikidata.org/sparql?query=SELECT%20%3Fproperty%20%7B%20%3Fproperty%20wikibase%3ApropertyType%20wikibase%3AExternalId%20.%20%3Fproperty%20wdt%3AP2302%20wd%3AQ19474404%20.%20%3Fproperty%20wdt%3AP2302%20wd%3AQ21502410%20%7D ). You could make a list, but that sounds like a maintenance burden.

Multichill reopened T191114: Implement personalized search for logged-in wiki users as "Open".

Hi @Multichill - this is a very interesting idea, but it goes against all of our privacy concerns with the Wikipedia community and the movement in general. I believe that this idea has come up several times over the years, but because of privacy concerns, nothing has been done with it (marking as declined).
