I'll be working on changesets for the points above shortly.

@kaldari I've also been taking a look at how valuable the various search results are in practice, and with Google I am able to coalesce some of the searches together using operators; reducing the query count by 50% at the cost of a slight increase in false negative results* - if budget is the sole remaining issue that would lighten that load quite a bit.

@csteipp, template description updated - I think that's most/all of what you need? I don't expect the work involved to be extreme, the extension is pretty well self-contained and has few interactions with core.

@Jdforrester-WMF: What is next for this? Anything I can do to help things along?

We don't run afoul of 2.7.11 (we provide the links themselves), but 2.7.7 kills us since we explicitly do filter.
I think the extension is at a point where that review makes sense.
With the latest rounds of merges, the TemplateStyles extension appears to be in a reasonable state and implements the major substantive part of this RfC as discussed in Jerusalem.
What's left to do?

Adapting CSBot now.

Done. I added ParserFunctions and Scribunto, and reimported Template:Wide image recursively to make sure it worked.

The current WIP can be played with on an experimental wiki. The main page is an example of a transclusion of a style template.

@Krenair I believe it was, yes.

I have an opportunity to work on this while at the Hackathon; with luck I may be able to submit a changeset today.
Apr 2 2016
Current status: we now have a proper design for Page namespace that is in progress but - as a first step - we now have usable mainspace editing with Visual Editor (including the transclusion tag). This is currently working on a test server, and is scheduled for the deployment train Tueseday, Apr 5 (and deployed on group 1 that inlcludes the Wikisources on Apr 6).

I'm not sure why you never received a reply, but it's very clear-cut. Indeed, there was at least one user whose access to labs was suspended because of that very reason.

I will be in Jerusalem, and will concentrate on coordinating work on this task while there (as well as hack on it myself).

I've created a variation on common's link trickery with JS for wikimania2017wiki (see related T122994) and it works pretty well; so having the links constructed in that way properly would help a great deal.

This occurs repeatedly on wikimania2017wiki, which uses language features heavily including translatable templates.

FWIW, excepting commons (for obvious reasons), most wikis where this feature would be desirable/necessary seem to me to be the smaller wikis and it's not immediately clear that the performance impact would be all that catastrophic if the caches did vary on a language selection cookie for them.

FWIW, from the DB transaction logs, the master seems to have valiantly struggled for about 90 minutes before it finally went down (and I expect the survival was made harder by the simultaneous LDAP and NFS issues). It might be worthwhile to add something to monitor really unusual growth of the BDB and alert.

VE is desired, but as the wiki is very young and the number of non "powerusers" is going to be very low, there is no emergency to deploy outside the normal cycle. Most of what is going to be added to that wiki in the short term is going to be imports, stylesheets, and templates.

The only way around this that I can think of is for the post-exit script to first check that the kv that is actually there really /is/ the one it expects to delete before going ahead and deleting it.
Dec 23 2015
We just missed a window, and tomorrow is a "Friday", I think. How does Dec 28 sound to you?

Announcement allowing the switch being thrown pending only on James (F). :-)

I can tell you what the Labs side of things is: run maintain-replicas after the database exists to create the views. AFAIK, the prod side involves adding the database to the list that should be replicated, something which I think only Jaime currently knows the secret sauce for.
@Krenair: I hereby notify myself. :-) More seriously, that doc should probably be amended as I should no longer be a point of contact starting Jan 1.
May or may not be significant, but tools-proxy-01 has (partially) live userland at least insofar as nginx continues accepting connection and proxying.

The puppet variable restricted_to was used inconsistently between projects; it was set to the group name everywhere but in project bastion where the parents for the group name were added explicitly on wikitech.

@Cmjohnson: We need to get our hands on another then; perhaps put in a req for one or is there one in Dallas we could ship accross?
So now I'm getting a bit confused. Adding the following record to ldap (manually, with novaadmin creds from silver) worked:
205 cn=project-gtest1-temp,ou=groups,dc=wikimedia,dc=org objectClass: groupOfNames objectClass: posixGroup objectClass: top member: uid=rush,ou=people,dc=wikimedia,dc=org gidNumber: 52779 cn: project-gtest1-temp
