@brion do you have a suggestion, where and how to document how this decision was made?

@Debenben can we put the source code of the bot to a public repository. Otherwise, it might hard to decide if the bot flag should be granted. Or did I just miss the link to the bot code?

@Jdlrobson from my understanding what happens during hook registration code is that this code is only called if the parser sees a math,ce, or chem tag in the template expanded wikitext. I could imagine that during template expansion math tags might appear under certain circumstances. But this is really a wild guess.

Another potential source of caching problems is the setting dependent cache key https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki-extensions-Math/blob/df1689c7177d5b7ef946ae2ff525594bd377da3f/Math.hooks.php#L133-L136 depending on the user setting for math rendering different versions of the page are served. I am happy about any suggestions, how the code could be improved.

@Jdlrobson I am maintaining the code in the Math extension. It there anything with the code within the math extension which is unclear?

Physikerwelt added a comment to T192351: Math extension not usable without RESTbase server.

@ePirat I have tested that in CLI mode recently. The advantage of this is that the rendering results are cached in the database. Thus if you customize the mathoid server, you might want to purge the caches, by truncating the mathoid table in the database. Of course adding action=purge works as well on a page by page basis.

@ePirat Thank you. The simplest solution is, if you upgrade both (core and Math) to the latest WMF release, i.e. 1.31.0-wmf.30 . That way you don't even need to run your own mathoid server.

@ePirat thank you very much for your bug report. Can you specify, what exactly the latest stable version is, since there are many releases https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Deployments ?
Before I can help I need to know if our version release include the commits mentioned here T188745.

Physikerwelt added a comment to T74240: Remove PNG only rendering mode.

@Legoktm Good news: @mobrovac merged the change to make swagger-ui optional. Do you think it's now doable to make the debian package, so that we can eventually remove texvc, ocaml, latex and so on from production.

Physikerwelt added a comment to T188879: Remove texvc.

@TheDJ technically it is. However, even if we removed texvc, we still have texvcjs. I got the impression that the intention is to remove texvcjs as well, which would have to carefully considered under security aspects and it would be also a major change to wikitext.

Physikerwelt updated subscribers of T137788: Add the middle command to math symbols.

@Lea_WMDE what is two days in terms of story points?

Physikerwelt added a comment to T137788: Add the middle command to math symbols.

@Mathmensch if you really need that the only option I currently see is to implement that by yourself or to convince someone to implement it for you. If there is a pull request, I will take care of the rest. The source code of the grammar component is available from https://github.com/wikimedia/texvcjs and a skilled nodejs programmer with a good understanding of a parser (e.g., from the computer science course on how to build compilers) should be able to implement it in two days.

Physikerwelt triaged T190625: Improve error reporting, if forbidden rendering mode is requested as Normal priority.

In T189292 it says

Therefore you have to add $wgMathEnableExperimentalInputFormats = true; to your local config. this is not the case for wmf wikis. Please reopen, if you want to enable this feature on wmf wikis. Physikerwelt added a comment to T135543: Add more symbols to the new math mode. We first have to disable png rendering in production. Otherwise people using that mode won't be able to see the new symbols. # Mar 19 2018 Physikerwelt closed T184355: Update MathJax/mhchem as Declined. @mhchem we discussed incompatibilities, off list. Thus just adding the option does not work. Thus I'm closing this task until there is a plan how to make the new version available. # Mar 16 2018 Physikerwelt updated the task description for T185580: Introduction to test driven development. # Mar 14 2018 zeljkofilipin awarded T185580: Introduction to test driven development a Pterodactyl token. Physikerwelt triaged T185580: Introduction to test driven development as Normal priority. Physikerwelt renamed T185580: Introduction to test driven development from Session: Testing to Introduction to test driven development. # Mar 11 2018 I don't see it either. Maybe it was automatically deleted when I deleted the instance yesterday. # Mar 10 2018 # Mar 9 2018 Physikerwelt added a comment to T189308: reset 2fa for physikerwelt. Thank you @Andrew my shell name is physikerwelt and I created the file as follows ssh physikerwelt@primary.bastion.wmflabs.org physikerwelt@bastion-01:~$ touch reset2fa
physikerwelt@bastion-01:~\$ ls
reset2fa

@Kelaun I have restarted api.formulasearchengine.com . It was crashed, but your input should render now. Can you update to the latest version of core and the math extension as described here T188745?
