Obvious is obvious
how to print French translation too, as English isn't always understood
The fact that you use terms such as "simply obvious" suggests that you're mostly thinking about your own personal workflow, knowledge and ideas, disregarding other translators. Most people I know who are interested in chapters etc. don't even know that they're now called "affiliates". Most people I point to Special:Translate don't even know that nested groups are a thing and that they need to expand.
The situation at Commons has been mostly discussed on the parent task T5665.
The latest is using embedded data inside PNG, PDF, and OGG files.
AFAIK this event didn't happen (though I'm not sure why): can the task be closed or should we reuse it for some other discussion format (RfC? IRC session? office hours?).

I've tried focusing the task on one of the use cases of the task description. I think making Special:SupportedLanguages more flexible would be the cheapest solution.
VERIFIED FIXED by visiting https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:Translate from an Android browser:
(I'll address off-topic comments on the user talk page.)
There seem to be two real issues here:
- you are adding markup which the source text doesn't have (why are you? as a Meta-Wiki translation admin I suggest you to report any problems you have);
- the message about unexpected markup is confusing.

Can I recommend disallowing uploads other than images for unconfirmed users on projects other than Commons?
I'm not sure in what way you expect nesting to reduce clutter, but if you think that the existing aggregate groups are too many/too small you can ask the translation admins to merge them.

None of these are really necessary though. Unless there is a plan to do it within X months in the developers' preferred way, it would be appropriate to do it immediately in the users' preferred way (i.e. the simple one).
Doesn't sound like this needs any changes in MobileFrontend itself.. am I correct?
You can start with "X processed N message changes"
However it would also mean to promote the usage of templates wherever possible, and to possibly automate the conversion of non-templated content with bots.
For the future I have no crystal ball; currently we have
- local templates using autotranslate+Translate,
- templates anywhere using messages from WikimediaMessages.
and showing the graph without the extra click
So I think moving away from these generic icons and using the project icons is the right move here.

That screenshot shows that Echo is still not showing the edit summary and therefore worsens the notifications compared to the traditional enotiftalk/enotifwatchlist email notifications of MediaWiki core.
Ok. From the description I thought I had checked permissions...
Disabling the extension is the first step and is a normal configuration change (in this case there is a global consensus), it can be done in multiple steps beginning from https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/335830 . Once the extension is disabled everywhere, we can immediately remove the configuration from mediawiki-config and then the branching tools (the reverse of https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Heterogeneous_deployment#Add_new_extensions_to_extension-list etc.).
The situation is still identical though, so I'd appreciate suggestions on what to do:
One easy filter is whether the item has a label in the "local" language, but perhaps excluding all the items which don't have one would be excessive.
Now there seem to be a few hundreds placeholders, but their content appears to be mostly in English: https://archive.fo/14RUY
This seems the counterpart of T59514: Special:MessageGroupStats for a list of languages
Usually tasks are built around targets, rather than means. Discussing whether we want a "complex solution" or not doesn't sound especially fruitful.
I confirm I can reproduce. Sounds related to the work on diacritics, doesn't it?
I have to wait for several days to see them vanish.
As such, the HTML dumps were intended for direct end-user navigation
Yes, but I'm not sure about the "core-ify" part of the summary. It should be possible for extensions to alter Special:RecentChanges and derivatives, as we're unlikely to ever find a single solution that makes everyone happy. Cf. T159795: Port Translate to new RC Filters system as an example of something which ought to be a code simplification.
There is a good reason to purge: like Base said – the statistics doesn't update on its own.

?&action=purge does that (I changed my interface language to Italian first).
This is a severe issue, but not especially urgent. Only the block is causing issues.
I feel there are concerns that the proposed simple solution would be too limiting compared to the existing method
Anybody interested is free to follow https://translatewiki.net/wiki/Translating:New_project and give this a shot.
How will those be treated in the future?
if dry run, where to publish it. (https://people.wikimedia.org/~krinkle/ maybe?)
(This is not "resolved" since the code of conduct has never been approved.)
Let's merge to the ticket with more information.
Looks like a mass-revert facility would be more appropriate for such a case of vandalism.
What's a "contagious" content?
I'm not sure spamming users is helpful.
It would be easier to disable the extension when it gets out of control, or to let reviews expire on a page when they have unreviewed edits older than x days (30? 100?).
Following the steps at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Flagged_Revisions#Enabling is needed. The extension is currently not translated at all in bh/bho (https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special%3AMessageGroupStats&x=D&group=ext-flaggedrevs-0-all&suppressempty=1 ) so this request can't be acted upon.
Following the steps at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Flagged_Revisions#Enabling is needed. The extension is currently less than 30 % translated in ur (https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=Special%3AMessageGroupStats&x=D&group=ext-flaggedrevs-0-all&suppressempty=1 ) so this request can't be acted upon.
