When the 'next' link is used to go to the next page in the queue, it makes a request to the pagetriagelist API endpoint with the below parameters. It overrides offset and pageoffset to match the current page's creation date and ID respectively, but all other parameters come from the current filter values.

I think wrapping adjacent same-token spans in new elements is a great idea, and it could be just once done when the tokenized HTML is inserted couldn't it?

Samwilson added a comment to T226746: Add Hover Support to Who Wrote That.

Might be of interest for this task: English Wikisource has a highlight-on-hover system that uses a set of separate elements to introduce the color, rather than just background-color on the inline spans. This avoids the gaps between lines. It's defined in https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/MediaWiki:PageNumbers.js

The only other issue I've found was that links in edit summaries in the revision popup weren't opening in new tabs. Note that section links, even if they go to an extant section on the current page, will also open in a new tab. I think this is the only sensible way to handle these, because they don't always go to a valid section (even if we were to link them to the revision in question, there's no guarantee that the section exists; this is how it's done everywhere else edit summaries are shown, I think).

Samwilson claimed T215053: Write an extension for displaying Discourse feeds on mediawiki.org.

There seems to be an issue with filtering by date with the calendar API. For example, this is supposed to work: https://discuss-space.wmflabs.org/calendar.json?start=2019-08-01&end=2019-08-30 but events outside of August are still returned. I'm not sure it matters for the first draft, because we probably most commonly want to be able to list events by tag rather than date range. It's probably just me misunderstanding the API.

@Aklapper the date input field in your example is a custom OOUI one; the one being implemented in this task is a browser-native HTML5 one, i.e. <input type="date" />. These built-in date pickers are not customisable, and browsers are supposed to display the user's preferred date format — however lots seem to only use m/d/y, or treat any en-* locale as en-us. It's a bit of a mess.

Sorry about this bug, I should have thought of it. The reason for it is that I wanted to be able to re-start the migration process if it failed, and so it's checking for the existence of a row before inserting it. Duplicate rows are not considered. The fix would be to extend the migration script to check for duplication and confirm that the same number of duplicates exist in the target database.

I've been trying to get some tests written and to understand the various places that need to be changed in order to implement this. But it's taking time, mainly due to the test system not being very easy to use (partly because we have application logic in the API classes, so we have to do internal API requests in the tests for those, which makes things more opaque). I'm happy to carry on, and of course will get there in the end, but is it worth it? How much time should be spent on this?

Samwilson added a comment to T169441: Spike: Page Curation should create a new AfD discussion page if one already exists [8 hours].

And are we aiming to find the next number in sequence, or just the first available one?

Samwilson added a comment to T212708: Graph generation is failing.

This isn't a question about the Graph extension, but about the GraphViz extension. @Mitchell316 if you're still having problems, could you open a new issue please and file it against GraphViz? Although, that extension isn't working with MW1.33 yet; see T226616 for more (maybe yours is a duplicate of that task?).

Samwilson added a comment to T212211: Associate red links on Wikibase client wikis with items in the Wikibase repo.

Just as another example of an existing template that provides this sort of functionality: the {{wdl}} (or 'wikidata link') template on English Wikisource takes a Wikidata ID and optional link-text, and links to the first-found: Wikisource, Wikipedia, Commons, or Reasonator. See it in action, for example, on Letter from T.H. Barker to his wife Mary, 12 December 1903.

Samwilson moved T226070: Move usage logs from Sqlite to MariaDB from Needs Review/Feedback to QA on the Community-Tech (Kanban (Q1 2019-20)) board.

Migration complete. There are a few things I still want to clean up in the prod tool (old symlinks etc.) but everything about the switch to mariadb is done (both for prod and staging).

Should I just go ahead with it? Am happy to.

Samwilson reopened T226070: Move usage logs from Sqlite to MariaDB as "Open".

Sorry, this is still waiting for review (PR184). I should have made sure it was in the right column.

Samwilson added a comment to T222548: Third-party MediaWiki user meet-up at 2019 Wikimedia Hackathon.

Would it be worth adding a good-for-use-in-presentations (or something) website tag to WikiApiary, similar to being tagged "semantic mediawiki of the month"? e.g. https://wikiapiary.com/wiki/Special:RunQuery/Website_by_Tag?Website_by_Tag[Tag]=semantic%20mediawiki%20wiki%20of%20the%20month&wpRunQuery=true
