Don't use conpherence with me, I won't read nor reply. Instead write me by email or my user talk on mediawiki.org.

I wonder if this is going to change the default URL as well:

If scap now has problems with the l10n updates, it should be reverted to the version which did not have such problems, so that l10n updates can run while the rest is fixed.

FYI translatewiki.net is not a company or a product, it can't be "purchased".

To clarify: that discussion was about changing the "canonical" URL for all DOIs.

Google is known to not respect our canonical URLs, see T93550: Fix canonical URL issues (tracking). There might also be some special handling for the mobile site. It's not so much of a problem in itself to have extra URLs indexed as long as only the "right" ones actually show up in search results (e.g. mobile site to mobile user), but that's harder to track down.

The interwiki is discussed at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Interwiki_map .
I vaguely recall someone raising this point on wikitech-l some months ago, people asked for at least indicative figures on what kind of speed improvement you expect (10, 1, 0.001 %?).

Yes, there are a number of problems in the English text which make translation unnecessarily hard; thanks for reporting some. I was hoping to get a Phabricator component for the extension so that reporting is possible as normal.
The extension (and skin) needs a dedicated component in Phabricator for bug reports about the code itself.
The weird language selector has:
The best way is to not ask an exception, since I doubt anyway that WMF has anyone to check dozens or hundreds of languages. But we can add the extension now and figure out the export later in the evening, before export time.

I'm sorry but having a non-accessible website whose HTML doesn't comply with standards and directly attacks disabled people *is* an important thing.

I'm worried that it will become harder to determine which changes we've already seen (e.g. yesterday, or 3 days ago), if we can't tell which day an edit was made.
That's also a factor why we decided to move forward with building a better tool. We can iterate faster on it and deliver more value for our efforts.

@Nemo_bis: It is irrelevant which software is used to show a string on the website.

If there are not any, what's holding this?

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.

This task is effectively a blocker for nearly all the other bugs in this component, so it's hard to understand how it can possibly be considered lower priority.

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.

Thanks! :-) Looks like a clean solution. (Should the assignee be set to @mmodell again?)
Awangba has made multiple edits https://translatewiki.net/w/i.php?title=MediaWiki%3ABabel-5%2Fmni&type=revision&diff=8259167&oldid=8259162, which perhaps caused warnings with the message checker because of missing parameters. $1 is now present as expected, but the word "professional" needs to be translated.

To me it still seems the easiest solution would be to put this on a separate wiki.

What do you mean by "participatory"?
The message above might refer to https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2018-August/090828.html
So the WMF website intentionally mischaracterises the OTRS queues? Where do you suggest to discuss this problem, given you closed the ticket?
A stylistic decision was made to use an inconsistent style?
Sure, after three page downs. Updating summary.
Can one read something more somewhere to understand the decision?
"Strategic", no less. Where is this strategy documented?
Sure, that's fine. At some point I'll take care of investigating the reasons for this and documenting them in the expected places.
Invalid response: people expect more from Wikimedia.
