Those were the newest wikis created (~3 weeks ago) so this is possibly expected?

A bug-report in Telegram provided this example, which I believe is part of this task. Adding here in case live-examples are useful:
Screenshot from https://www.wikifunctions.org/wiki/Z11938?uselang=pnb versus https://www.wikifunctions.org/wiki/Z11938?uselang=en
where the text should display as +e Python but shows as e Python+ in RTL.

@Jdforrester-WMF re: User-notice - is this task already covered by the entry in https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2023/48 about async/await (which links to T343499) or is it a separate entry (if so, what should it say?)? Thanks!

There's some feedback at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Xtiir7e6iubumeqq asking for the CSS needed to replace the new styling with something less prominent.
Do you (anyone) have any suggested wording for the Tech News entry? I'd guess at something like this, but perhaps there is more detail to add?
Proposed Tech News draft, please edit or approve, and (optionally) add any additional link that belongs within the text:
Changes this week
- The skin Vector-2022 will have some CSS changes to enable future modifications. In the short-term this will result in some styling changes for: buttons on dropdown menus, backgrounds, and sidebar widths. These changes were added to a small set of wikis last week. If no issues are found, the changes will proceed to all wikis this week. (1)

Just to confirm for Tech News purposes: Is this releasing next week even though there isn't a deployment train next week (20 Nov)? Or does the Tech News entry need to be moved to the following week (27 Nov) instead?
(The current entry says "Starting on Wednesday, a new set of Wikipedias will get "Add a link" [...]" (meaning 22 Nov). Thanks!

This issue might have re-appeared? There's a fresh report at Meta_talk:Babylon about edits not being correctly autopatrolled. (I'm not sure if this needs a fresh task, or if it's a re-occurrence of the underlying issue here.)
Yup, seems to be resolved, somehow. Closing as no longer valid. Thanks!
@ovasileva Thanks for the notes! How can we best squeeze that content down to just 1 bullet-point? (~3 sentences, 1-2 links)
Also, from this task's description and comments, I cannot tell whether the changes next week will affect just the four named Wikipedias (in which case a Tech News entry might not be efficient, and direct posts at those 4 wikis would suffice), or if any changes will be visible elsewhere?

There's a new bug that I think might be related to this change? From a user-report at Enwiki:
Are my [expand / collapse][chevrons / carets] supposed to be misaligned with the section headings now on Minerva? (Android + Firefox, duplicated in Chrome). Just wondering if this is intentional.
Nuance: It seems to only affect some pages, not all. E.g.
Re: User-notice - Thank you for the draft-wording, that is greatly appreciated! I suggest changing the Pywikibot link from github to mediawiki-wiki, mostly so that we could link to a translatable page.
I initially didn't notice that it's still waiting for a patch-merge, so I drafted the entry. Please either ping me when it's ready (before mid-Friday) or add it directly (before mid-Friday), whichever week that happens.

Ah, right, I mis-read the documentation. I've struck out part of my prior comment. Sorry about that.

A related issue with images that aren't properly specified as "thumb" was recently noticed at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:Village_pump_(technical)&oldid=1183369888#Highly_visible_mobile_bug
It sounds like matmarex's proposed solution would also help with that, as well as things like templates.

Re: Tech News - What wording would you suggest as the content?
Please either let me know here, or add it directly to the upcoming edition (within ~24 hours, after which it will be frozen for translations). Thanks.

@jhathaway there's an example ticket-link, and some copied headers from that ticket, in the vrt-wiki thread: https://vrt-wiki.wikimedia.org/wiki/Administrator_requests#Whitelisting . It looks like you have an account on that wiki, so hopefully that helps? :)

What's the date/timeline for this? -- n.b. That info is always needed. -- I wonder if it could be added to Maintenance_bot's default Task Descriptions?
Re: User-notice/Tech News - What wording would you suggest as the content, and when should it be included (i.e. both which week, and which section of the page)? That information is always needed. Thanks!
I've read the Task description and comments, and from a glance it looks like it's already live, so I think the entry would be located in the Recent Changes section of this upcoming edition, and worded something like this, but you may have better ideas (and perhaps extra links?), or clarifications (is it just 1 or 2 skins?):
- In the Vector 2022 skin, the default font-size of all content in the Tools menu has been increased slightly to match the font-size used in page content. (1)

Ok, so a complete draft could be (please improve this if possible, or correct any inaccuracies or missing details ):
- In 2 weeks, in the Vector 2022 skin, code related to addPortletLink and #p-namespaces that was deprecated one year ago will be removed. If you notice tools that should appear next to the "Discussion" tab are then missing, please tell the gadget's maintainers to see instructions in the Phabricator task.
I'd like to include the context so that it might act as a memory-aid. Would something like this be accurate?

Re: Tech News - What wording would you suggest as the content, and when will the change go into effect? I'm unsure how to summarize. Thanks!
Re: Tech News - What wording would you suggest as the content? and when will the change occur (so that I know which section to put it in)?
(Suggested-Draft summaries always help me a lot and are deeply appreciated!)
After reading the task and patch description, my best guess is something like:
- In the mobile web skin (Minerva) the CSS ID #page-actions [has been/will be [when?]] replaced with #p-views. This change is to make it consistent with other skins and to improve support for gadgets and extensions in the mobile skin. A few gadgets need to be updated; there are details and search-links in the task.

@ppelberg I think we might need to rework that a bit. Ideally a Tech News item would primarily link to a translatable documentation page (not to Enwiki), and with specifics (i.e. avoiding "soon"). I'm also confused by the last sentence as the link just points back to this task and I cannot easily see where the "timing and the wikis" is documented here (But I might be overlooking it! Long day!).
It would be good if an announcement could:
- link to wherever this new feature is documented on mediawiki-wiki, which would include details such as:
- if editors at each wiki need to do any setup, then give them steps/checklists to go thru
- if editors in each language need to translate any new interface strings, then provide links to translatewiki for those
- or, if it will work with all existing Editnotices without any extra onwiki-edits, then we could just write "edit notices will be shown on mobile web". [Sidenote: I believe this is just about MobileFrontend/Minerva, and not the Mobile Apps?]
- Provide a clear and simple timeline for when it will arrive at which wiki(s).
Timing-wise, if there's not any new onwiki setup/translation requirements, then it could be announced the same week it starts to go live.
Hope that helps!
 possibly it belongs at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Interface/Edit_notice ?

I've tweaked the entry to add a bit more context. It now says:
Thanks! I've added an entry to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2023/40
If any changes are needed to that, please do so (or tell me what to change) within the next ~25 hours, after which it will be frozen for translation.

I've added temporary links at the Extension:Gadgets page, pointing here, until someone can properly document the new feature(s) in the table there. Please fix/improve if you can. Pinging main patch authors (IIUC) @BrandonXLF and @SD0001 in case you can help. Thanks!
Sep 22 2023
Do we also need to update the entry for Z10 within https://www.wikifunctions.org/wiki/Wikifunctions:Reserved_ZIDs to specify it has been [removed? deleted?] ? Or will it return in the future?
@SD0001 Thanks! Added to https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/2023/39 - Note that is linking to the aforementioned https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:MyLanguage/Extension:Gadgets#Options which I believe needs to be updated with the exact new parameter(s).
