Well sheesh, @ItamarWMDE , you didn't leave me much to do, did you? :) Thank you for this super-thorough piece of documentation. I will copy it to MediaWiki shortly.

It can be! I'm guessing there has been a renewed call for answers to this question. I'll bring it up in today's doc meeting.

As I see it the manual page now contains answers to questions 1 (client) and 2 (it can be anywhere on the internet) and the "sp_ver" question (no functional impact). If @lucamauri is content we can close this ticket.
Manual page updated. (Spoiler: the setting is indeed a client and not a repo setting.)

Hi, just tuning in on this topic. Since I recently had my hands on the documentation in connection with T280787, I will take a look at this shortly and see if I can get any open questions answered.

I'd be grateful for a quick explanation of how a template can be used here. I lack the context to understand how things have changed --

To my knowledge this is done.

Sure, I'll give it a once-over.

Does this info exist somewhere? To my knowledge, we don't currently have a doc that instructs users on how to update a manual Wikibase install. Since the release happening soon was Docker-oriented I didn't think this area of documentation would be in demand yet. If I'm off base, let me know and I'll do what I can ASAP.
I lightly edited Tobias' doc, which has been merged and I think satisfies this ticket's requirements:
Draft doc for approval:

FWIW the Docker install instructions have not been updated yet with the new info (I marked the page as outdated). They will be updated by end of week if not tomorrow.

After consulting with the developers I've added some documentation to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/Suite#Native_and_non-native_data_types . Because Wikidata is extremely customized and not a model example for Wikibase, we've only noted officially supported data types and their extensions.
Apr 23 2021
I'm revising the high-level Docker instructions https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/Docker on the basis of the work in the new repo. I'll arrange to drop in the new docs timed correctly for this ticket.

We met on this topic today -- we'll be improving and moving around some of the docs mentioned here and also https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Lexicographical_data/Ideas_of_queries .
Apr 7 2021
These suggestions are quite welcome. The docker documentation page is extremely old and out of date.

(I reinserted the "Creating an account" section into the main document with my clarifications and changes.)
As always, it's a question of what the audience finds most usable. Personally, I think if the audience is likely to search for things using Ctrl-F then my input is not needed -- that means the audience is highly technical and already knows what they're looking for on the page. I will defer to your superior knowledge about the page's audience and revert my changes.
We had discussed my revamping the help page for Phabricator, which at the time I thought we agreed needed some serious work, and you invited me to go in and make changes. These are the changes I propose. If you no longer want me to make this page more readable and usable as a technical writer, I'm happy to revert my changes and close this ticket.
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/Installation/Advanced_configuration is an outdated document. Trying to determine whether to unflag it as outdated or to move the contents that are stlll current elsewhere.

As a technical writer I'd like to be able to write instructions to a user installing Scribunto manually; these instructions exist in part, but I'd benefit from knowing about any special install instructions or problems.
The results/worklog from the install process for OAuth and integration with QuickStatements should flow into the hands of the technical writer for inclusion here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/Suite#OAuth
The results/worklog from the install process for QS should flow into the hands of the technical writer for inclusion here: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikibase/Suite#QuickStatements

Thanks for the context, @Peachey88 . My suggestion here is that there be a text label, regardless of the icon.

I've done as you requested. I respectfully request that if Herald allows functionality that is rejected by organizational policy, that functionality should be disabled if possible or at least red-flagged on the page that enables it, or on https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Phabricator/Help/Herald_Rules .
Thanks for testing! Beat me to it :)
Thank you, I tried it!
Thanks @Kizule ! I opened https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T265453 since you said I would need another Phab task for it. If I can set my own Herald rules, please direct me to the documentation. Much appreciated --
Thank you for the speedy action! I don't know what a Herald rule is, but I assume you're saying I'd need one for setting a default assignee. Will do --
For WMDE-Technical-Writing the default assignee should be me.
