  • 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 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.

I have added a 5 second delay after item creations. I also added a mechanism to have a delay after any other edit type.

Note that this limits single threads only. QuickStatements, various SourceMD webtools and bots, Mix'n'match sync etc. can still add up. Also, this does not effect my JavaScript tools on Wikidata proper.

Multichill added a comment to T184948: limit page creation and edit rate on Wikidata.

I personally would like to strip the right from the bots and enforce a rate limit for them as they just don't care about what we say.

If bots ignore replag ( https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Bot_policy#Edit_throttle_and_peak_hours ) these bots should just be stripped of the botflag. The good shouldn't suffer because of a small number of problematic users.

Too many edits in too small amount of time can affect infra in several ways, one is replag, one is dispatch lag, one is jobqueue size. If edit is about creating new items it can also affect the infra in some other ways too as we want to be consistent about Q-ids and do not assign same Q-ids to two items.

Overall, if community stick to a rule of thumb like *max* 60 edits / min. and *max* 10 new items/min. and community actually enforces that (and don't wait until the whole infra falls down and we ping them so they stop), there wouldn't be a need to have such ticket in here in the first place but this continues to happen all the time.

You should start by publishing your source code. I asked this before multiple times at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User_talk:Ivan_A._Krestinin#Publish_the_source_of_KRBot_please . That way people can help to improve your code etc. According to the Wikimedia Cloud/Toolforge rules you're not allowed to run non open source code anyway (https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikitech:Labs_Terms_of_use).

Multichill added a comment to T145712: Statement counts from pageprops do not match actual ones ( wikibase:statements and wikibase:sitelinks ).

Yes, if there's an RC record and revision number increase, it will reload.

So the data is not up to data in wikidata properties tables. Not sure why and how this can be fixed. Editing the item seems to fix it, so maybe there should be some bot that null-edits such items periodically?

Multichill added a comment to T186945: Message welcome bots at local wikis trigger due to edits at Wikidata.

That explains why I keep getting these weird notifications for https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Special:CentralAuth/NoclaimsBot . It's only configured to work on the wiki's listed at https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/User:NoclaimsBot#Overview

Multichill added a comment to T180874: Ignore deprecated constraints in constraint tool.

Thanks for implementing this. What's left is updating https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Module:Property_documentation to make use of the deprecated rank. Left a message about that on https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Template_talk:Property_documentation#Handle_property_constraint_with_rank_deprecated
