Does anyone know why this task (adding a link) is taking multiple weeks? @Evelien_WMDE

Thanks for tagging me in this ticket. @Aklapper is right, wikiba.se is no longer a docs landing page for Wikibase. As part of my plans to revamp Wikibase docs I will review https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Documentation/Review_template .

We're straddling Asana and Phabricator here -- let's say that we've fully gathered the list of cookies when I've reviewed the doc as mentioned in https://app.asana.com/0/1201480856350195/1201480856350215/f . This will happen by EOB 2022-02-25 (CET).

Thanks, clarified the docs.
Doc page updated.

Potential duplicate of T272472 .
Nov 24 2021
I have my eyes on this because I'm very invested in seeing/building consensus that all formal issues should be tracked in Phabricator.
Nov 18 2021
I've had this in my task list for a while; what's the release date?

Documentation should be treated as living and changing. To the extent that tickets have meaning, we need to have some definition of done for this one.
As always, feel free to add topics to the meeting document!
This task probably needs to be rescoped or subtasks created:
Import is an upcoming meeting topic; I'd like to frame this task in the context of this page:
I take it back; I don't think it belongs on the Advanced config page after all.
I'll add a link to the mediawiki.org page(s) to the Wikibase FAQ and advanced config pages.

I have this down as a Q4 task for technical writing. To complete it I'll need to work with a subject-matter expert who understands the upgrade process, ideally someone who has tested it and made some kind of notes I can turn into a user-facing document. If I'm asked to I can test it as well.

If you name the script config-migrate-1.36.php or equivalent and include instructions, it should be clear when to use it. In my opinion, all code we offer for use should be included in the repo.
What is the rationale not to distribute the script in the repo? Offering it via phabricator is a very strange and unhelpful way to offer it to the users.
Is there any reason we provide this script in phabricator and not in the code itself?

Updated per our discussion.
There's no "Wikibase" tag any more so I don't know how to tag this properly...

I unintentionally left this task hanging. I have the info I need to complete this task thanks to @LucasWerkmeister and will finish revamping the page in the coming days.

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.
Jun 10 2021
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.
May 19 2021
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 --
May 17 2021
To my knowledge this is done.
May 12 2021
Sure, I'll give it a once-over.
May 6 2021
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.
Apr 26 2021
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.

Apr 8 2021
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.
