danshick-wmde added a comment to T272576: Include Scribunto extension in Wikibase release packages.

As a technical writer I'd like to be able to write instructions to a user manually 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

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

There is one already (It has the defaults, until personally customized), Although the icon probably isn't the most obvious icon for new users.

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 .

danshick-wmde added a comment to T263867: Wikibase's ontology-1.0.owl has the label "referenceValue" repeated.

Is there a reason we should have a copy of this file on the wikiba.se website instead of linking to the source? It's not linked anywhere on the site itself, and I think it's a relic from the previous version of the site.
