bearND added a comment to T207325: Footnote weirdness after editing the title parameter.

Deduplication would only fix it for subsequent occurrences of references with <cite> elements. The first one would still have the <style> element coming shortly after the <cite> element.

Just saw https://github.com/wikimedia/restbase/pull/1074, and am wondering if that is enough to cover also this task or should we continue promisifying CPU intensive tasks?

As mentioned during apps standup I recommend the Android app at least to incorporate the PR for the page library. In the meantime I'll also look into moving the style tags inside reference lists towards the end of the document (since the reference lists tend to come near the end of a page and are collapsed by default anyways).

@ssastry: @Dbrant makes a good point in T206527#4659479. The parsoid output of a page with cite tags has unnecessarily duplicated content, while in the PHP parser version duplication works.
Compare running document.querySelectorAll('style[data-mw-deduplicate="TemplateStyles:r861714446"]').length on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cat#References vs. https://en.wikipedia.org/api/rest_v1/page/html/Cat#References. While the former has only one occurrence, the latter has 278.

Yes, local override should be taken into account (eventually). Possibly it's good enough for a prototype without it but eventually this needs to be taken into account. I think the MW API should be able to indicate if the description is central or local and if possibly filter on it, too.

bearND added a comment to T205550: Localize the strings used by page library transforms.

@JoeWalsh The apps already know the translated strings, which they pass in over the JS bridge. What I really want to accomplish here is to have these values already know on the server-side, so that we're getting the DOM rendered as much as possible on the server-side. The server already knows the main language from the wiki domain and any wanted language variants could be known on the server via the accept-language header.

bearND added a comment to T203588: Feed checks timeout on RESTBase deploy.

Another idea is to temporarily turn on debug to true in the config.prod.yaml, similarly to how it's done in the config.dev.yaml[1]. This would show also outgoing requests (to backend services, like MW API or other services in RB). Check it out locally first to see if there would be any useful info there.

The feed content includes a lot of things already stored in RESTBase (Parsoid content of pages, PagewView API, summaries of included pages, ...). Are the hosts getting updated properly depooled? Should MCS use a different hostname to refer to content in RB?

bearND added a comment to T202939: Integrate page library change for 6.0.1.

For this you need a wide enough device, e.g. an iPhone 6 Plus in landscape mode or an iPad,
then open the Cat page,
open the collapsed infobox table

bearND added a comment to T201381: Infoboxes too narrow on wide devices.

@Krinkle I added you and @Jdlrobson mainly to increase awareness of how MinervaNeue CSS is used downstream by the apps for future CSS changes, and possibly review my PR that tries to fix this issue if you'd like.
For the future it would be great to get a heads-up of major changes in CSS (esp. for tables) or get some ideas for better testing this wrt to the apps usage. This will be even more important in the future when the apps get the CSS from the server instead of bundling with the apps. (But even with some testing when the apps update their CSS bundles this fell through the cracks.)
