Ningauble added a comment to T64671: VisualEditor: Be able to set an item's size in upright terms in the media edit dialog.

So the message we have to spread is "don't use upright anymore" ?

Is somewhere work going on to implement a replacement for "upright" which will be supported in VE?

Could someone say what the status of this is, please?

Ningauble added a comment to T63993: Babel language codes should be normalised to lower case when used in categories.

I have blocked the bot account at en.wikiquote because this is still happening. Other wikis will have to fend for themselves.

Understood. If you don't want it removed, then, we won't. :-)

I thought that what he meant by saying that it should be discussed at another specific task which does not exist, was simply to stop the discussion. (The insistence that Citation and Footnote are synonymous, despite what every standard dictionary of the English language plainly says, and that templates are not supported unless they are placed in footnotes, also strike me as thought-stopping absurdities.) However, since you have restarted it I will comment on your findings and give a little background.

If you mean the Footnote system (<ref></ref> and <references />) then en.Wikiquote does not use it. As stated in the opening description above, it is completely deprecated at the English Wikiquote.

"Uninstall Cite from Wikiquotes" sounds a bit draconian, as if "cite" and "footnote" are synonymous. Seriously, every quotation at Wikiquote should be cited, but not in a footnote (at en.Wikiquote and most Wikiquotes).

Please consider disabling this "bot" until it can be fixed. At en.wikiquote it is not only creating these spurious categories (miscapitalized and redundant to correctly capitalized ones), but it is REcreating them when they have been deleted.

Meta formerly had local custom css that allowed one to wrap the template call in a div using class="babel-plain", which had the desired effect. For some reason (css removed?/deprecated??/broken???) that local workaround no longer works as documented at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_language.

Ningauble added a comment to T109712: Invalid OCSP signing certificate in OCSP response : can't read Wikimedia websites on Firefox.

I can confirm that I also had this problem with the Firefox security option "Query OCSP responder servers to confirm the current validity of certificates" enabled (by default). After about a half hour it stopped happening. It now appears that all is well.
