It looks like keeping the original content attached to the DOM does avoid the issues with re-attaching a deep clone of it. At least, the wikiminiatlas behaves itself, with its mis-nested elements. :)

I've not got that extension installed, but Firefox's contrast checker highlights the text on background #657d91 as the problematic parts. Is this correct? i.e. the 'Drop files here' and row of buttons along the bottom of the area should all be higher contrast? Could you attach a screenshot of the areas of concern?

Samwilson added a comment to T239840: No translations on Firefox Add-Ons repository.

We don't need to map them to the different codes in the json files in the project, because those are all correct for MediaWiki use (which is where most of them are used). The incorrect mapping is just for the name and description, where we need to copy them in accordance with Firefox's language codes. That's a manual process anyway, so it's probably okay to make the mapping from zh-hant to zh-tn manually (i.e. hardcoded as we are doing for e.g. pt to pt-pt).

What it should be: "Error: Please contact us about this issue" or something similar. The reason it has "to contact us" is probably because the translation message for "contact" is standalone, outside the main sentence.

Samwilson added a comment to T241172: Allow configuring Genealogy to be used in name spaces other than the main space.

Yes, the reason that partners is different is that it's a bi-directional link between pages and so can be defined from either end. That means that rather than defining a partner page and outputting its link at the same time (as works for parents) it's necessary to define it (with zero output) and then use {{#genealogy|partners}} to output the list of partners (which will include all partners including those defined from other pages). For example, the following first defines up to three partners, then prints them all together (with any externally-defined ones):

Samwilson added a comment to T192752: Convert Page Forms to use OOUI.

Nope, no reason! :) I figured the datetime one would be more complicated, and so tried it first. The date one should be pretty straight forward I think.

Samwilson added a comment to T239840: No translations on Firefox Add-Ons repository.

According to this, the other translations are only imported when the extension is created the first time, and not when it's updated.

Samwilson moved T232460: [BUG] Unresponsive script when loading articles in non-default language [8 hours] from In Development to Needs Review/Feedback on the Community-Tech (Kanban-Q2-2019-20) board.

I have figured out a fix. Basically, it looks like we add to the Resource Loader queue before it's finished being set up.

Samwilson added a comment to T192752: Convert Page Forms to use OOUI.

I think I meant that having a new input type was not a good idea, and that it'd be better to change the existing ones to use OOUI instead of jQuery UI. I have been meaning to get back to that patch and fix it up. Feel free to grab it if it's useful; I don't think I'll get to it before the end of the year.

Samwilson added a comment to T232758: WWT: Infobar covers up article coordinates.

I think the recent z-index increment from T234709 might have also solved this.

Samwilson added a comment to T239223: Maintain consistency between Firefox and Chrome extension repositories.

I've also asked about other ways of doing this. The other issue with automating this is that when we upload a new version, we have to supply the source code, and there is currently no way to do that via the API.

I will bring all languages on both stores up to date with the latest (short) descriptions from the current i18n files. This will make the store descriptions match what's seen in the extension lists after installation.
