NicoV added a comment to T269225: Dumplastbz2lock from mwbzutils 0.1.1. sometimes fails, causing page content files to falsely be considered bad.

@ArielGlenn

At least for frWP, it seems the step "Recombine articles, templates, media/file descriptions, and primary meta-pages." doesn't start even if the step "Articles, templates, media/file descriptions, and primary meta-pages" is done for more than 20 hours. See https://dumps.wikimedia.org/frwiki/20201220/

They seem done to me.

2020-12-21 01:41:19 done Recombine articles, templates, media/file descriptions, and primary meta-pages.

    frwiki-20201220-pages-articles.xml.bz2 4.6 GB

Note that the servers running everything else but enwiki have the old version of the utils so they wil work just as they always have.

NicoV added a comment to T258892: Allow adding other attributes to <Typo ...>.

Yes, I understand that typo list pages can only be changed once a new AWB release has been rolled out (and probably after some time to be sure users have upgraded). That's why I'm pushing to include this patch, so that it won't be too long before modifications can be made in the typo list pages. At least, once I know this patch will be included, I can also start modifying WPCleaner to take advantage of this, even before we can add the new attributes to the typo list.

I modified WPCleaner a few months ago to remove the bot flag when adding warnings on talk pages (or subpages), to have a better chance of article authors noticing the warning. What better way do you think of?

NicoV added a comment to T56947: VisualEditor: When user changes a link anchor which has the same link target, suggest that they may wish to change the link target too.
In T56947#6657213, @Tgr wrote:

The volume in the above mentioned edit filter (T56947#2098243) would be a good metric for success. It might be useful to have it on more high volume wikis.

Note that the filter only catches changes to dates (which is a good way to avoid false positives, but it avoids the vast majority of true positives too). So it's a good way of measuring whether problematic edits become less frequent, but not a good way of measuring how frequent they are, in an absolute sense.

I already ran my bot twice this month, but one thing that can also partly explain the difference is that in August, I ran it very late (like 30th of August instead of 22nd or 23rd), so it fixed some that would usually be fixed in the beginning of the next month.
