Just a note that this has been running for a few days now, there just apparently haven't been any copyvios yet. Once there are, https://copypatrol.toolforge.org/ar should magically start working.

Is there any expected time when https://copypatrol.toolforge.org/ar will work? as until now (after 7 days) still give 404 Page Not Found: "The page you are looking for could not be found. Check the address bar to ensure your URL is spelled correctly. If all else fails, you can visit our home page at the link below."

1 - Numbers must be non-Hindi Appearance of the eastern arabic numerals on Arabic wikimedia Commons but Western Arabic

Per this (@Meno25 comment) this task not easily actionable now, as changing wgTranslateNumerals value to false on Commons or WikiSpecies will cause MediaWiki to stop translating all languages (Arabic, Hindi, etc.), which will inconvenience other communities. Even removing $digitTransformTable table from MessagesAr.php will lead to problems on Arabic Websites (outside Wikimedia) that use Eastern Arabic numerals.

alaa added a comment to T144132: (non-patrolled pages) don't appear as yellow in arwiki (class "not-patrolled" not set for <li>).

UseNPPatrol is enabled in arwiki and per Special:ListGroupRights only sysops have patrol. I couldn't verify this since I am not one on arwiki.
