Interesting. It does make me wonder if we should message the user about partial translations existing. Had we decided previously that we wouldn't let users choose partial languages from which to translate? It makes sense because if there's no text then the translator doesn't know what to write.

I reckon this is OOUI territory but it seems like we'd need to decide what action/character means you are done with that item. Spaces won't work because pages have spaces in the name, right? Some apps that do this with tags use the comma as a signal. At any rate, blurring the field should submit these at a minimum.

  • What happens if you leave the page? Does the process terminate or not?

The way I understood this is that with the current architecture, yes, the process would terminate. However, we intend to make this a background process as part of the job queue work we've discussed. Once that is available, this could become a queued process that wouldn't require the user to stay on the page.

We could do it but I don't think we should consider it our responsibility directly.

@Samwilson Thanks for clarifying that about the files. I wasn't sure if there'd be SVGs or PNGs lying around.

aezell added a comment to T206820: Create a method to fetch total number of bytes changed during an event.

Get size on the most recent revision and the size of the oldest revision for the given time period. Subtract. That's the total bytes changed on that page during the event.

@Niharika Yes, I think per-label is much more feasible. If we build toward that ideal and we find performance issues, we can back off but I wouldn't anticipate that.

I just looked at some of the raw data instead of the counts and I need to redo these queries. It's definitely not correct.

Our current implementation plan is that all SVG reading and writing happens in the back end. If you wanted to render a preview every character, that is a LOT of round-trips to the server and many, many unused files laying around. That leads me to say that I don't think it's feasible.

@TBolliger Take a look and see if this is the data you were expecting: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ORQKUYUa0XaCDCfB-2tJGSlyXBopRkF0k5JbWu6OKcQ/edit?usp=sharing

Way out of scope for this task but this kind of data and the slices you want to look at would be PERFECT for an ELK stack. You could even have a dashboard that showed these numbers in real-time.

aezell added a comment to T206721: Create the code to process SVG file to workable data and back into SVG file.

This is merged which I assume means that it is done. Can it be marked as such?
