For those still following along: I haven't forgotten about this. Looking at this a bit more, I think mwparserfromhell parsing of templates will improve this hierarchy a bit further in addition to relaxing the regex. I'll be interested in upstreaming this stuff hopefully sometime this Q2 or next.

@Milimetric the visual treatment depends on a few factors, although yes, I think we'll want a placeholder to account for any deferred or lazy fetch or client compute timing things.

Thanks @kzimmerman - yeah, some cursory review of the "predicted" values and whether they're approximately sensible and whether addition of stuff of this nature to Hive for a starting point might be of use would be most appreciated!

I'm about to start the work to derive country from Infobox settlement bearing subjects (effectively replacing the Geography.* mid-level category assignment for such subjects), as that's something we're exploring for the purpose of counting pageviews by topic in a little more fine tuned way as a starting point, but meantime here's what the heuristic output looks like.

Thanks @santhosh and @Pginer-WMF. Lydia and I spoke. Just to close the loop on one my earlier questions, template key-to-Wikidata property association does not clash with Wikidata client editing plans as of now. Lydia also reinforced the value of data mining in working through potential futures (some of which is happening I see). There are no simple approaches, to be sure, but I did want to close the loop on this one item.

Hi @Bouzinac, usually the software tries to make basic web page rendering functional without a strict need for JavaScript. Obviously a significant portion of the software actually requires JavaScript in practice for a feature rich experience, but basic reading is one case where usually we want to be able to support the basics.

dr0ptp4kt updated subscribers of T221534: Define template parameter mapping between languages as a wiki page.

I'm in support of the canonical identifier of template parameter keys being Wikidata properties in the cases they're available. I lean toward TemplateData for the time being as the place to forge the connection between template keys and Wikidata properties. As people inevitably copy TemplateData templates across wikis in the current state that ought to make for more consistency on the semantic meaning of the templates, at least.

Thanks @kzimmerman. All the signals I've seen and that we could think of seem to suggest there's a positive traffic increase attributable to the intervention. My gut instinct given typical user behavior on search engine result pages and the nature of this intervention is that there's very little cannibalization, no detrimental cannibalization, and in fact there's a real boost to content availability and consumption.

Correct. And note that this graph only shows the traffic when the translation target language is Indonesian. You may also notice that from January to February, visits from integrated translated results is much higher, then it drop since March.

dr0ptp4kt updated subscribers of T217866: Provide access to iOS engineers for iOS group.

@Krenair created task here. Previously I had sufficient permissions as I recall, but it seems like there's been an update (TBH I may have missed a note somewhere).

Hi there - re-opening, although please let me know if I should open a fresh task.

dr0ptp4kt updated subscribers of P8156 Referer source ratio.

@chelsyx possibly helpful for T212414, although not conclusive.

dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T212414: Measure the impact of externally-originated contributions.

@chelsyx As it is the "Access the translated funnel" line makes the other parts of the funnel look compressed in the "Number of events when target language is Indonesian, by action type" graph. It's a true representation of the magnitude, of course, but I was wondering if you had an approach that might aid visual interpretation of the data (e.g., two y-axes, non-constant scale, percentile fluctuation, etc.).

Thanks @Pginer-WMF. I've put a HOLD on the calendar for March 6 to get the Varnish patch up a little bit ahead of this, although will adjust as needed for any change in the activation for the extension (or the schedule of @BBlack and myself the day prior to the activation of the extension).

Thanks, @santhosh. When you say "context detection code", I take that to mean inclusive of this init code we're referring to for the "Desktop" footer link removal.

dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T208524: RfC: Standards for external services in the Wikimedia infrastructure..

Would it be possible to clarify the wording on "There is no existing FLOSS software that provides the same functionality"? I believe the intent here is about surveying the FLOSS ecosystem for well crafted, well maintained, architecturally compatible FLOSS software that provides comparable functionality before specifying and building new non-trivial standalone services.

dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T203127: Implement "last known good version" API.

I don't see this as an urgent priority, although planning it as a small piece of work for a future quarter would be fine. We could then share this with the mailing lists and contacts we have at places where people are employing these sorts of algorithms in their own code.

dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T203127: Implement "last known good version" API.

This sort of algorithm is in use in several prominent high scale media properties, but people are recreating the work in their specific cases, as opposed to having one easy-to-call API that reflects this line of thinking. The idea was to expose something that, given a title, produces the correct revision. I strongly agree that it should also take into consideration whether that last correct revision is reportedly non-damaging (and scrub backwards further if so), as sometimes humans can't keep up with the backlog.

@BBlack in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/490120 I checked in with @Pginer-WMF today. Pau said deploying this the day or two prior to ExternalGuidance being activated for the source wiki of enwiki (for Indonesian) would be ideal.

Okay, so based on @TheDJ feedback @JMinor it seems the issue may surface in fleeting edge case scenarios. Of course some would say making those errors visible is a feature, not a bug. Anyway, obviously this is your area for prioritization.

Thanks. I'm not sure if something changed in a Scribunto module or somewhere in extension land, but it doesn't seem like it's really turning up on enwiki source, at least - there are some Village Pump discussions on this.

Hi all - I was aware of this task but hadn't been following it. But it was brought to my attention as having some momentum, so here I am! I have some information I can dredge up that I think may help shed some light on some paths forward. I also want to check in with some product and design people about any sense on forthcoming product interventions in the area of interactive or, for that matter, materialized graphs.

dr0ptp4kt added a comment to T212197: Deliver mobile-based version for automatic translations.

For those following along, I ran a query to get a sense of global usage of Google Translate and using the "Desktop" link. On 11 February 2019 there were only 89 such requests globally, about 2/3 where enwiki was the source wiki. This figure is not a perfect predictor of desktop user behavior, as for desktop users using enwiki as the source wiki receiving the mobile treatment it will be a new thing. But it probably suggests that, in addition to the rationale @Pginer-WMF provides about the basis of stopping showing broken stuff, the mobile read view is okay for consumptive purposes in general.

@BBlack ^ would you please review the enwiki VCL patch? We'll only want to merge it after ExternalGuidance has been tested with simplewiki and @Pginer-WMF has given the greenlight, but I figured it best if we go through review ahead of that.
