@Varnent - they're static as of the patch merge and deploy, so whatever they were around 21:00 UTC or 13:00 PST. Per previous discussion, we assumed that would be ok.

I would suggest just modifying the 2014 report to have the current value of the script. Sure it might break the edit counter, but its from 2014, does anyone really care?

Varnent added a comment to T235601: Compress and change image format on photos on wikimediafoundation.org.

Is there a script that can automate this or are you indicating this would have to be done on a per image basis every time? Right now, there are several hundred images on the blog and several hundreds more on staff profiles. Training people to keep them under certain dimensions has been hard enough, unless the site runs the imageoptim script for them, I am not very confident we could train everyone uploading images on how to effectively use this.

It sounds like this is similar to the request for WMFall - basically maintain the previous archive and redirect the email to the new list. I think that has to be done on the DevOps side, but if adding some of us as list admins helps - let us know.

As someone who frequently visits organization websites for a variety of purposes, I can testify that for at least some of your target audience, staff pages are important.

I also check the staff page of most non-profit websites I visit, and definitely before deciding whether to donate.

@Varnent -
I know this task is probably low-priority, but is there any update on blog.wikimedia.org and/or policy.wikimedia.org? Both still have the x-hacker: If you're reading this... header. Additionally, blog.wikimedia.org has an amusing but possibly inappropriate x-nananana: Batcache header and policy.wikimedia.org has x-powered-by: WordPress.com VIP <https://wpvip.com> and x-pingback: https://policy.wikimedia.org/xmlrpc.php headers, which provide some information disclosure and probably shouldn't be sent if they do not have to be.

As an additional check, is the included google analytics also intentional in light of T201022?
[I'm assuming it actually loads, I couldn't figure out how to disable DoNotTrack in my browser to test it]

I may actually have been mistaken about that, i just saw the url in the code, but i don't think it activates.

Varnent added a comment to T230638: Move old transparency report pages to historical URLs and setup redirect.

Sorry - should have clarified. I meant if in theory down the road the wikimediafoundation.org site was moved to our servers - the setup you are describing would be easy to do? Just getting some context and verifying assumptions before going in to talk with Automattic. :)

Varnent added a comment to T230638: Move old transparency report pages to historical URLs and setup redirect.

On the broader meta-topics: Long-lived canonical URLs are important, and I think that transparency.wikimedia.org seems like a more-natural fit for that (and to continue printing and publishing it). IMHO, the ideal end-game here* would be to move transparency.wikimedia.org to Automattic hosting completely and have it serve the new content directly, as well as the historical parts, and have the blog's links link into it. The currently-outlined (interim?) setup sends confusing social and technical signals (e.g. to search engines) about which of https://transparency.wikimedia.org/ or https://wikimediafoundation.org/about/transparency/ is the canonical location of the content.

  • - (within the scope of what's already been decided and ignoring the known pain-points we've communicated before, re: how the privacy and transparency policies of our main sites, documented on these sites, are different from Automattic's privacy and transparency policies in hosting the content about our policies, etc...)

Varnent added a comment to T230638: Move old transparency report pages to historical URLs and setup redirect.

Awesome - thank you @BBlack - super helpful and I get now what you all need done. Apologies for the confusion on my part, I thought this was done via backend mapping that basically pointed the repo to a specific URL which could just be updated. I think I understand how what you are indicating is the setup.

Varnent added a comment to T230638: Move old transparency report pages to historical URLs and setup redirect.

Okay - so basically SRE will not setup the requested configuration until we figure out how to setup the script to output the old site into a subdirectory - correct?

Varnent added a comment to T230638: Move old transparency report pages to historical URLs and setup redirect.

I am confused by this statement. The content repo is explicitely setup this way so that people working on this site can merge content changes without having to contact SRE and when i look at the repo in Gerrit i see that you just merged something in it yourself. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/q/project:wikimedia%252FTransparencyReport

Varnent added a comment to T230638: Move old transparency report pages to historical URLs and setup redirect.

All the changes you can see above, including your own, have been deployed to production servers automatically in the past.
The puppet code is:

16     git::clone { 'wikimedia/TransparencyReport':
17         ensure    => latest,

which means all that happens is that puppet pulls from the repo people have been using all this time. I don't see why that would be different now.

One thing that you can already do is create https://transparency.wikimedia.org/historical/ since that is just inside the content repo that is under your control and is a requirement before we can add rewrite/redirect rules to it in the webserver config.

@Varnent: For the redirects: just the main https://transparency.wikimedia.org/ URL? Or also the sub-pages like https://transparency.wikimedia.org/content.html ? I haven't yet looked at the content for the move to /historical/, but I assume it's relatively-simple.

Varnent closed T227675: "Recent posts" on profile does not show most recent post as Resolved.

Thank you for pointing this out. I am not exactly sure what caused this error as I could not replicate it on the development site. However, I have recreated your guest author entry and that seems to have solved the problem. I am closing the ticket as I could not find other instances and seems fairly contained, but please let me know if it is not resolved on your end. Thank you!

Okay - so basically anyone that registers on Wikitech and knows the account password for our analytics instance can get access - you do not need to add any permissions?

If it is their username, I suspect then that it is "Deb_Zierten" as they are User:Deb Zierten.

Is their LDAP the same as our Google Accounts username? I was told previously it was associated with Wikitech, but perhaps I am remembering wrong or was told wrong. :)

They were already notified and do not utilize Phabricator to track things like that.

@Varnent: If your team owns the website wikimediafoundation.org and does not use the Phabricator project tag wikimediafoundation.org to track / manage / plan things related to wikimediafoundation.org, then what is the purpose of the Phabricator project tag wikimediafoundation.org?

Okay - if anyone is aware of teams that should be alerted and were not - please let me know and I can tag them here in the future. Thanks! :)

So I know - who on Phabricator needs to know and should be tagged?

@Varnent - Probably members of your team / teams that may organise downtime in future
