Multichill added a comment to T343936: Handle timing out SPARQL endpoint in Pywikibot.

We should probably handle the 500 error as a recoverable error (just like the socket time out) and retry.

Maybe the WDQS maintainers will disagree, but to me, automatically retrying a query that timed out and already consumed a significant amount of resources in doing so doesn’t sound like a good idea.

Multichill added a comment to T343131: Commons database is growing way too fast.

About links from commons to commons: I think a lot of them come from c:Category:Language_link_templates (aka /lang templates) which are used by some old templates. For example Template:PD-US-no_notice/lang is transcluded by Template:PD-US-no_notice which is then transcluded to all the files using that template. /Lang templates are automatically generated or updated by template:LLE which uses external links to subpages instead of internal links, in order to help with some database table exploding in 2009. See discussion. A lot of transclusions of /lang templates in license templates was removed in 2013, because they were causing other issues, but not all of them.

Maybe we should retire those templates (I never found them useful) or change template:LLE back to create templates using internal links at the danger of blowing up some other table (template link table?).

Also in the 2009 discussion on the subject @Multichill mentioned that LLE uses external links because "Externallinks was hacked to not be included in a table if it points to the same site". If external links to Commons are stored now, than maybe we should re implement this old hack.

Multichill added a comment to T343131: Commons database is growing way too fast.

I was thinking of something that a template/module can add to a page automatically, but SDC probably also works for some use cases, that’s true.

Is WCQS operational? Can you do the queries like this now if people migrate data to SDC? If not, do you have an ETA for when that'd go online?

Multichill added a comment to T340495: Incorrect normalization of pywikibot.WbTime.

This is a bug. This causes bots to butcher up dates. Say for example a painting is sourced to be made between 1190 and 1210. The year will be set to 1200 with a precision of a millennium with earliest date 1190 and latest date 1210. The 1200 is used for sorting and other cases where things are just grouped together. This would be changed to 2000 with the current logic. This is not in line with https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Help:Dates .

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.

Multichill placed T238980: Add "some value" with qualifier "human" and "sport:figure skating" to all unidentified figure skating people on Commons up for grabs.

Got a ping from @Aklapper about having tasks assigned to my name with no activity for a long time. This task doesn't ring a bell.

I was able to reproduce this on https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pheasant_in_the_stubble_-_geograph.org.uk_-_3185682.jpg, and a purge fixed it. Sounds like T299356: Depicts statements are shown in WCQS but not in SDC is more widespread than it might have seemed at first.

Multichill added a comment to T291771: Latest Pywikibot git version doesn't work on Toolforge.

The "AttributeError: module 'pywikibot' has no attribute 'Site' error is fixed with T298384. Is anything left to do here?

No, as a tool developer I don't want to authenticate, see https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons_talk:SPARQL_query_service/Upcoming_General_Availability_release#Mandatory_authentication_considered_harmful . Filed T297995 to remove it.

Multichill added a comment to T280806: Remove old action api token parameters.

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.

Multichill reopened T291771: Latest Pywikibot git version doesn't work on Toolforge as "Open".

If you are not using the shared install, then you are required to install the dependencies in a virtual environment.

(Toolforge is not an appropriate tag. See its description.)

Not sure why the Toolforge project was removed by @JJMC89 . A package is missing on the generic infrastructure affecting multiple tools. Also no mention of this on https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Help:Toolforge/Pywikibot#Clone_pywikibot_git_repo
