QuimGil added a comment to T153911: Fatal error when a newsletter sharing a main page with a deleted newsletter is deleted.

When creating a new newsletter, Main Page is the page defined as the "home" of the newsletter. It makes sense that is is unique because one can assume ust one wiki page designated as wiki page related to just one newsletter. Then again, it would not be the end of the world if checking this uniqueness causes problems and we remove the check.

@Bawolff I am not sure the interwiki notifications are the problem. Currently users are already getting Newsletter notifications in their wikis when they are not MediaWiki support, thanks to plain interwiki Notifications. T175279: Add the newsletter description to interwiki bundle notification is a problem, but maybe the solution lies in the Notifications framework, not in the interwiki support for Newsletter extension.

Hi, sorry, the Newsletter extension cannot be deployed to other Wikimedia wikis until we have figured out how to solve T110645: Interwiki support for Newsletter extension. A key value envisioned for this extension is to have a single catalog with all the newsletters, so users can check the one and only list and find everything there. If we start enabling this extension before the interwiki question is solved, we will have dozens of catalogs of newsletters spread all over.

QuimGil updated subscribers of T135237: Allow editing old version of Flow description.

For what is worth, fixing descriptions (trying to see the difference when a suspicious edit comes and restore a previous version if it was vandalism indeed) is an unpleasant task. It needs to be done manually, takes time, and makes you miss a revert link. This needs to be done with reasonable frequency in MediaWiki.org or Catalan Wikipedia, and I suspect other wikis with SD enabled. The more SD expands, the biggest this problem will become.

Not a proper notification, but user Qgil-WMF removed user QuimGil as a test, and this is what QuimGil received via email:

QuimGil triaged T175279: Add the newsletter description to interwiki bundle notification as Low priority.

First we would need to check whether the Notifications framework allows to do this.

How do edit summaries parse wikitext, and could we use the same approach? Edit summaries accept wikitext links [[Some page]] that will be parsed as such in the page history and Recent Changes. However, http links, images, templates etc will not be parsed.

QuimGil moved T175432: Newsletter summary length issues from Backlog to Needs discussion on the MediaWiki-extensions-Newsletter board.

Maybe the solution is to simply use the same type of field that MediaWiki offers for edit summaries. It's a textfield and not a textarea, which in itself gives an idea of conciseness. It has a character counter that lets users know how many characters are left.

This is weird. Today I saw that the old description had reappeared in Special:Newsletters and the Manage page. What / who brought it back and from where, I don't know.

QuimGil triaged T175431: Allow name of Newsletter to be translatable as Lowest priority.

This request has some open questions common to T175430: Allow translatable text in the summary of Newsletters. A newsletter only needs a multilingual title when it has multilingual issues. For practical reasons, let's mark this task blocked by T175430 and let's start the discussion there.

QuimGil triaged T175430: Allow translatable text in the summary of Newsletters as Low priority.

From a subscriber point of view, what would decide in which language I receive the notification? An algorithm will have to decide, based on what? Unless subscribers are able to define a preferred language when subscribing, which would complicate things. The same question applies to T175431: Allow name of Newsletter to be translatable.

The thing is, the list of newsletters and web/email notifications are not "page" like things.

I still don't see a strong use case for allowing/parsing wikitext in descriptions. Newsletters and issues point to wiki pages where authors can squeeze the power of wikitext at will.
