Perhelion updated subscribers of T30563: WikiEditor - Streamlining and customizing the groups or modules loaded by default should require less manual scripting.

We need simply a hook event. The trigger "wikiEditor-toolbar-doneInitialSections" is not suitable (which leads to such fixes rEVED889358f24c20dd326be341f170479334c136021a) also mentioned in T23692#260234 by @Mattflaschen-WMF

Short question (not from me) the ltr icon https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:OOjs_UI_icon_stripeToC-ltr.svg has now illogical rtl alignment.
Compare the old one (apex theme) is exact mirrored: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:OOjs_UI_icon_listBullet-ltr_apex.svg

Perhelion added a comment to T202771: [8 hours] Investigate ways to handle text breaking in SVGs.

That would not easy possible. There must be something like a "max-width" aka content area https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2/text.html#TermContentArea value for the relevant text areas. I mean the same considerations where suggested with Flow-text, which comes not in the final SVG (1.1) specification.
If we would support SVG 2 it would be easy, as it uses "Auto-wrapped text" https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2/text.html#TextLayoutAuto.

Not that this is an important button, but the general problem is, the Wiki syntax is intended to be a tag language and HTML developing is going straight to CSS. But the other main point is, Wikimedia don't want CSS in syntax: T37704

Perhelion updated subscribers of T114592: A translatable subpage page should not be messed while moving subpages.

Sorry to be here for an live example, but I deleted https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Mozilla_Public_License/i18n (in fact ./en got deleted) to be able to move subpages per hand from https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:PrefixIndex?prefix=MPL%2F&namespace=10 (which got not moved due the move bug by @Jarekt 2018-03-22) which seems a very bad idea from me.
As now (FuzzyBot) deleted all subpages without warning. And I restored all pages, but now the template is not translatable anymore.

The current implementation is somewhat of awful. The long size should be depending on what (and maybe how) is something inserted. The edit summary is, in general, a short notice what was done. Some people c&p they fully edit text in there what should definitely never the goal of this feature. Or also classic Uploads got the full file-page as the summary.

I reopened the task, as this is not an expectable behavior of the API (and it is also not SVG related). If we have a query list with a bunch of file titles, the whole query fails, and then we must retry the query again and again until we have all errors?

Perhelion updated subscribers of T55899: SVG masks fail to render (or even display).

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:SVG_mask_gradient_bug.svg renders correctly on Commons SVG Checker only, which declares running under librsvg 2.40.2. (as @JoKalliauer mentioned on a testcase)

Perhelion added a comment to T7792: rsvg does not render baseline-shift correctly (<percentage> and <length>).

This is one of the lower bugs I know. As in the "Non-goals of librsvg" stays: "Implement every single SVG feature that is in the spec." On the other hand, even industrial-strength SVG rendering machinery in modern web browsers, don't supports this baseline-shift (as Firefox and Edge).

Perhelion added a comment to T132921: Unable to delete file pages on commons: MWException/LocalFileLockError: "Could not acquire lock".

I guess Test.svg is a really problem (limit) indicator, as this has the ongoing growing longest file history ever (+ already deletions).

Perhelion added a comment to T49145: Formally deprecate jQuery UI after we've stopped using jQuery UI in extensions and core (replacing it with OOUI)..

I guess on Commons the module must be installed locally, as there are to much gadgets using this.

OK I see now, not blocked, because subtask T166601 is already done.

Perhelion added a comment to T30856: Remove classic edit toolbar from core.

This is blocked by T88976: mw.toolbar.insertTags should be independent from mediawiki.toolbar module as (mw.toolbar is removed and) mw.toolbar.insertTags is used for the bottom edit tools (mw-editTools; which should not be removed!?).

Perhelion added a comment to T180923: Publish full fallback sequence for (generic) font families (sans, serif) in SVG rendering.

I absolutely agree (for years, I just wanted to create this myself). On the one hand, it is absolutely annoying for editors if fonts get removed undocumented without any replacement/fallback.(rOMWC1616462ae03ad28fff9fdfc85203820c0bc25c1e)
The only information is https://noc.wikimedia.org/conf/fc-list (the whole page meta:SVG fonts is based on this).
Which seems neither complete nor trusty. We can see here the removed fonts are still present.
Examples (especially Nimbus Sans L fallback for Helvetica):
