Sj added a comment to T303258: Build a "Portal" skeleton/template that Wikimedia communities can copy and reuse.

I think the bug (which now has no ticket) is the more far-reaching issue here: when a default-skin update breaks some pages that people have spent a long time maintaining for a particular use case, what should the skin designers do? Are there a standard list of page-types that should be tested?

I am a user that rarely needs short update delays.
Didn't we just take a poll about what features of WDQS users prefer/want? Do we have the results of that to see if a double backend strategy would satisfy users?

@awight still an important idea, the issue still causes problems for editors of all skill levels -- for regular editors, it happens at a steady slow stream and they know how to find an admin and ask for help; for newbies, it happens constantly as a barrage of "don't come back!" and is ... perhaps our most easily avoidable foot-gun. :)

@TheDJ this does feel like an egg-and-chicken problem, does it not?

Good WP integration remains valuable to the maps ecosystem too.

Since we seem to have tried this before for the Kaltura viewer, it's worth attempting. The linked ticket about 3D model viewing suggested it might be faster than rewriting.

Sj added a comment to T248897: Create an easy-to-use editing interface for JSON tabular data pages.

Metadata editing: it depends on the source. I could imagine people leaving many comments on a talk page, and someone familiar w/ how to update the metadata doing so periodically (once a week?) It's not something that every visitor needs to be able to easily do.

Sj updated subscribers of T250919: Add row/cell annotations to tabular data.

Tgr: Agreed on the importance of this. There should be a canonical space for annotations, which could be a source or other (imagine the entire output of your favorite {{cite}} or {{footnote}} template) -- just as though every cell has a pre-generated footnote for all such details. There is already a common norm of providing an extra source column (or row, more rarely) -- which would still be useful where there is no need to repeat the same source information for each cell.

@Tchanders it may make sense to start with just editing the existing table, but just as important is the ability to add a new element/row with the same structure. Depending on the use case, edits to a given tab file tend to be bimodal: either (editing existing cells) or (adding a new row, never editing existing cells).

@1Veertje Thank you -- I find your tool also useful for working in the other direction: taking an existing spreadsheet and generating a tab file.

Another use case for a generalized 'whatLinksHere' -- seeing where a tabular data file is used?

Sj added a comment to T252307: Create a Lua module that converts tabular data to a wiki table.

I like this -- with an option for a "time-series" that would take one row as a 'primary key' and pull out only the most recent row for each unique key.

Are these questions answered elsewhere? Seems to not quite fit the phab-task format
