Multichill added a comment to T244341: Stop using blank nodes for encoding SomeValue and OWL constraints in WDQS.

@Multichill the discussion seems to have stalled. Thanks to Peter the pros and cons have been well summarized now. I also understand that part of the misunderstanding of this change was the lack of clarity on the motivations as to why we require a breaking change like that. I hope it had been addressed in the linked discussion.
Do you have additional comments to make here? Thanks!

Yes, ran into this too on Wikidata this week. The stripping could happen on the front end javascript or in the backend API. Not sure where other clean up is currently happening. AFAIK this only applies to string datatypes so I'll update the task a bit.

CCing @Multichill, who deleted the property in question. Even if the error is handled better in WikibaseMediaInfo in the future, I figure the property deletion process should have included a haswbstatement search on Commons, not only checking that it wasn’t used anymore on Wikidata.

Multichill added a comment to T245606: CloudVPS: enable BGP in the neutron transport network.

BGP is quite a slow protocol, you might want to tweak some timers or combine it with BFD.
If BGP is giving you too much hassle, you might want to consider switching to OSPF. On the Juniper side you should be able to run it in a separate routing-instance to keep it away from your main OSPF process.

Multichill updated subscribers of T221921: Provision search endpoint for SDC. Requirements from Product Team..

Not providing the promised SPARQL endpoint for Structured data on Commons is effectively pulling the plug on the whole project.

We will still build a tool to get out Commons data, one that lets you navigate the ontology tree and have similar output formats.  Fixing WDQS before it busts is higher priority, so that is what the Search Platform team is working on right now.  In addition, the Commons Query Service is currently blocked because we don't want to build a new query service until we know what the solution for the old one is.

Multichill updated subscribers of T221921: Provision search endpoint for SDC. Requirements from Product Team..

Some of the use cases described here are already supported by search (wbstatement keywords, etc...). We are not going to work on a new SPARQL endpoint before we have a scaling strategy for the current WDQS. It looks like the remaining use cases described here might be better served not by a SPARQL endpoint, but by a more specific service.

Multichill added a comment to T246901: Support full colour 3D models on Wikimedia projects.

Sorry, I was unclear. This isn't a problem with any given rich 3D format, it's a problem with the nature of things. For WP:BEANS reasons I won't go into depth about the potential abuse vectors, but certainly things we touched on were around problematic imagery or content, especially forms that are stenographically "hidden" or textures painted onto the inside of a surface so they're invisible on casual inspection.

Right now, a Commons sysop can glance at new image uploads as they come in and determine in a fraction of a second if it's problematic (e.g. copyvios or CSIA or other issues); for videos, they have to watch at least some of it; for 3D models, they'd need to interact with it to examine it from lots of different viewpoints/etc. It's just a different scale in terms of work.

I can't find it right now, but I recall having a list of requirements for new file formats to be support. Top of my head:

  1. Has to be a free format (no patents or other problems)
  2. We need to be able to render it somehow
  3. We need to be able to do a sanity check on the file (to prevent malicious content)

Multichill updated subscribers of T239474: [M] Units support for quantity datatype.

Any news on this? We just created https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Property:P7787 to indicate the heading the photographer was looking when taking the image. The unit would be degree (http://www.wikidata.org/entity/Q28390). Currently can't use that, just without a unit, see for example https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:%D0%A1h%C3%A2teau_d%27Amboise_4.jpg&diff=prev&oldid=387384011

Multichill added a comment to T231981: Add support for top-level statements with quantity values.

Tested on production (double checked on mobile) with length property. Works as expected. Still need to add unit support (which will be done via T231981 )

@Urbanecm thanks for looking into this. Appreciated. Not sure if bot usernames are a privacy issue, I think not because these are role accounts. I recall in the past we had a list of top bots using an old version so we could contact the operator. Maybe double check with the legal privacy guru's?

Multichill added a comment to T239474: [M] Units support for quantity datatype.

Here's a question – where do the units come from? Are we using a hard-coded list, or somehow fetching a list of appropriate units based on the property? Units will also be property-specific (a "length" property will have different units from a "weight" property).

How does Wikidata handle this?

Multichill updated subscribers of T239172: Enable support for the none (novalue) and unknown (somevalue) "special value" types in SDC UI.

I did some design exploration on how we could support no value/unknown values, but it radically changes how statements editing will work on Commons. We discussed it as a team and have decided that for now, we will:

  1. display no value/unknown values if added
  2. make these values deletable in edit mode

Support can be more robust in the future when the community data model is more fleshed out.

@Multichill is it important that we allow users to add "no value" values when they're editing, or do you think it'd be sufficient to simply display "no value" values that have been added some other way?

Multichill added a comment to T239163: Inform users about constraint violation.

Where do you plan to store the constraints? Currently the constraints are on Wikidata on the properties.

I assume we'd test for constraint violation when a new value for a given property is submitted by using the appropriate API action, and wouldn't keep track of the constraints ourselves. We'd just check against what was defined on Wikidata.

Multichill added a comment to T238949: Add depicts statements to Naturalis taxon images.

Done, did a couple of files that worked well. Ran into an unexpected problem: They included the photos of boxes that not actually contain the taxon (the box does contain the taxon, the image doesn't). See for example https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Naturalis_Biodiversity_Center_-_RMNH.MOL.186584_1_-_Erronea_cylindrica_(Von_Born,_1778)_-_Cypraeidae_-_Mollusc_shell.jpeg .
