Nemo_bis added a comment to T190047: Split the "Extension Used by Wikimedia" message group.

The "legacy" extensions could just be removed from the group without creating another one. Skins should not be conflated with "legacy": not only the skin is arguably the most important part of the interface to translate for those who use it, but the statistics about usage are not reliable due to a database data loss some time ago, and at any rate the relevant statistic would be by language preference and not by wiki.

Thank you, I saw that yesterday and it's an improvement. Personally I was a bit surprised at first by the literal mention of MailChimp, I envisaged something like "a third party hosted in USA". But I see why a direct, concise and matter-of-fact wording can be preferable.

You want files to go under /srv/dumps/xmldatadumps/public/other/nicedirnamehere and I don't remember how that gets synced between the two labstores, maybe you need to do that manually. Most data that's not dumps gets grabbed via rsync which is handled in puppet, and so both labstores pick it up.

Most of those features seem unlikely to be implemented in Huggle. As of now, the only thing Huggle may provide is the ability to add the "delete" tag, but if you need it so often then I may just make you sysop. Usually deletion is not used much on translatewiki.net because it's of little use for messages (it has no effect unless you delete a translation before it's exported at the end of the day).

Is it possible to disable any and all templates, edit summaries, regexes, scores, admin-related tools, report pages and talk page messages, so that other users do not notice any difference or "alien" practice?
