Given the “Translate this page” link is copied from source page in most cases, I have no opposition to use translation language code for language parameter value in translated pages (it is already the case, as Tacsipacsi said).
If this parameter is removed in link in source page, this is sufficient for me. 🙂

Help about X makes sense in English. But you need to think on other languages that wouldn't use the Help part as the first word or that would need to decline one of the words so the sentence makes sense. There are lot of implications here.

Pols12 added a comment to T274881: Change translation variable (tvar) syntax.

About migration, I am not sure to understand all technical aspects, but having to re-mark all pages for translation seems me useless and/or insufficient.

  • useless because source page is the only one to contain <tvar>, there is no need to update translation template and translation pages.
  • insufficient if Parsoid becomes the only available parser because all pages which were not re-marked for translation will be broken: in that case, all pages should be fixed by bot, or, ideally, silently fixed directly in database, even for old versions.

Pols12 added a comment to T59302: Suggest case insensitive results when searching for categories to add.

Is it not possible to use the article search engine with (invisible) category: prefix instead ?

Wouldn't that search for pages in the category namespace, rather than actual categories? Some categories don't have associated pages, and you can create pages in the category namespace for non-existent categories.

Pols12 added a comment to T249437: “MediaWikiwiki” prefix should be enabled on Translatewiki.net.

I can’t say whether this update is expected to automatically happen, but maintenance/populateInterwiki.php seems to be design in this purpose. But I find it curious that it doesn’t use maintenance/interwiki.list nor maintenance/interwiki.sql.

Pols12 added a comment to T271072: Supported wikitext should be documented.

As a smaller fix for internal links, a Pandoc filter is possible:

function Link(el)
    if el.title == 'wikilink' then
      el.target = "https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/" .. el.target
      el.title = ''
    end
    return el
end

Thanks for these explanations! I am wondering about Translate extension wikitext (<translate> and <tvar|name> tags), are they well supported (ignored)?

Pols12 added a comment to T266157: CSS error should be displayed while trying to save, not only when previewing.

I assumed this task was about the former, as it shows errors on preview (and, theoretically, save) while the latter gives feedback in real time.

Pols12 added a comment to T208981: Reference context doesn't show that the reference is reused, which is confusing if you try to delete and recreate it (converting a re-used basic reference to template citation).
  • Is it possible for people to land directly on the Replace citation's Manual tab after clicking the Change reference type button?

For a Replace reference button, that was nice to land on Automatic tab, but I agree that for a Change reference type button, landing on Manual seems much better.

Pols12 added a comment to T267282: VisualEditor fails to load when page contains an image inside an external link: imgWrapper is undefined.

There's T248369 filed for this, but note that if an empty link= parameter is provided, you won't get this misnesting. Not sure if that's a feature worth preserving though

No, that just makes it plain confusing. It is better to simple-to-grok rules that MOS of wikis can adopt. "You should not nest images or wikilinks inside extlinks".

Yet, this practice may be pretty common (especially for icon type images). I think a usage evaluation should be done first, if this syntax should become deprecated.
EDIT: my bad, this evaluation could be done thanks to T248369

Several Wikisources (actually, at least French one) import mul:MediaWiki:OCR.js. I had requested a small change to fallback to old OCR when got text is an error message instead of XML content:

function hocr_callback(data) {
	if ( data.error || data.text.substring(0,5)!="<?xml" ) {

You can test on any page on Page: namespace on English Wikisource. This seems to work for most pages, but it is still broken for some others, e.g. Page:Europe in China.djvu/422, Page:Europe in China.djvu/422 or Page:Plutarch's Lives (Clough, v.4, 1865).djvu/215.
