Multichill added a comment to T279637: Upgrade Swift ms cluster to Bullseye and revisit mkfs.xfs options.

Broadly, there should be little impact (and our monitoring suggests error rates within expected ranges); I hope any errors were infrequent and transient.

Unfortunately, a number of the reimages are not proceeding smoothly, which I think is more likely to produce upticks in errors.

Multichill added a comment to T279637: Upgrade Swift ms cluster to Bullseye and revisit mkfs.xfs options.

Is this upgrade supposed to be without impact? Does it impact the performance of the Swift cluster? I've got quite a few of these for the last couple of days:

Multichill added a comment to T270911: Remove GWToolset extension from Wikimedia Commons.

Not saying this to be mean - I think everyone involved really did try there best, and communication failures, especially on the WMF side, set things up for failure. However, i think a lot of interesting lessons could be learned from GWToolset if anyone ever wants to try again with something similar. Which would be cool. So far it seems like WM-DE (unless i am misinformed) is really the only chapter that has successfully collaborated on mediawiki development. I think Wikimedia would be a lot healthier if more groups participated on the technical side.

I did the same analysis as @Legoktm did last week, and the numbers didn't really change over the week 80k reqs/day upgraded out of 238k req/day.

I seems like the upgrades are not progressing any longer. There's been so many announcements related to this project already, that it's unlikely one more announcement will change anything. Let's try to roll it forward - I will not backport the revert just yet.

@dcausse thanks for the pointers. Might be worth switch structured data on Commons first to the new approach. It is much less integrated in all sorts of processes and it uses a ton of blank nodes or was Commons already switched?

Multichill added a comment to T277665: [L] Determine an IRI to join commons mediainfo entities and wikidata properties referencing commons images.

File names are bad URI's. Files get renamed all the time (see https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&offset=&limit=500&type=move ) causing all sorts of breakage. The pageid stays the same so the mediaid also stays the same. That's a much more stable identifier.

Multichill reopened T258776: Add Structured Data on Commons M-ID to Wikidata dumps as "Open".

I'm going to close this as a duplicate of T277665 as that is what we see as the practical solution to this problem. Please re-open if you don't think that will solve your use case.

Multichill added a comment to T166094: Allow editors to provide default alt text on Wikimedia Commons file description pages.

No we don't, captions are just labels, see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:EntityData/M96527.json . Description is currently unused in SDOC.

Well, perhaps the variable is called label in the code, but in the Wikipedia app, people are being asked to fill these fields as image captions. So it's a bit of a conflicting usage of that specific field right now (descriptions on Commons, captions in the Wikipedia app), but neither of them are for the purpose of alt text. Which means it would be a huge work cleaning up before it would be useable even if we started to designate that field for it. Better start fresh in my opinion (and if the label/description/caption field is redundant in your opinion, then suggest remove it in a separate ticket).

Multichill added a comment to T166094: Allow editors to provide default alt text on Wikimedia Commons file description pages.

Well, then we need a new field for the caption. They are not meant to solve the same problem and should almost always be different from each other. So for every image it would be very useful with two separate text fields.

Why are we not using the description field for this? Seems more sensible to me than creating new properties

Multichill updated subscribers of T258776: Add Structured Data on Commons M-ID to Wikidata dumps.

The URI for the image is https://commons.wikimedia.org/entity/M6919529 (yes, https, not http, that got messed up, see T258590). You can see an RDF representation of that at https://commons.wikimedia.org/entity/M6919529.rdf . We should someone include this URI on Wikidata too. The royal way would be to update the image data type which accepts the Mediainfo ID and does all the logic like the current image data type.

@CBogen why did you remove the search projects? This looks very search to me.

The Discovery-Search project is mainly for backend search work; this is a front-end project in MediaSearch on Commons so it would be part of the Structured Data team's purview.

Multichill added a comment to T273110: Using Structured Data on Commons in file pages.

I obviously like getting more structured data and better usage, but I see some issues with this task: The scope seems to be very broad. Is this intentional? What kind of time investment is expected? Might have a higher chance of making a difference when it's more tightly scoped. We have several steps in the process and possible tasks related to it:

  • Convert existing data from wikitext to structured data. This is already happening on a small subset, but on a large scale. Not controversial as long as you don't remove any data. Still a ton of work to do here, but quite a few things are not clear yet on how to model things. Building some kind of workflow to extract knowledge from the category tree and show it to users for approval would be extremely useful.
  • Show the structured data in a pretty way. You already mentioned some examples, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Module:Artwork and https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Module:Information . The current approach here is to do incremental improvements without changing the look and view from what it used to be. You can also take a radical different approach like skins: You make another implementation for the same data with a completely different look and feel. With some logic logged-in users can enable this new template skin. That way you can experiment quite freely without disturbing the Monobook people. This task would be fun for someone who is on the edge of development and design.

@RKemper so what's the status of this? I see a lot of cases where the last edit didn't get processed so the data in SPARQL is not consistent. See https://w.wiki/ugf for some examples.
