eranroz added a comment to T306888: Migrate ERANBOT project off of Grid Engine.

Beside copyright bot /copypatrol /plagia bot - all jobs of the bot were moved to new toolforge-jobs .
I think we can close this ticket and mark it as complete?

eranroz added a comment to T334265: Proposal: Create new bot account to replace EranBot's plagiabot task.

I think it is more proper from technical perspective to create a separate bot account than using EranBot for a bot dedicated for copyvio to help with separation of concerns.

Thank you for your help keeping the tool working! I have sent a request to Rentier and asked him to add you as a co-maintainer for the original tool. If he is OK to add you as a co-maintiner this it seems to be the easiest way to do so.

Some people in hewiki report on exception in VE of HttpException from Rest: https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D7%95%D7%99%D7%A7%D7%99%D7%A4%D7%93%D7%99%D7%94:%D7%93%D7%9C%D7%A4%D7%A7_%D7%99%D7%99%D7%A2%D7%95%D7%A5#%D7%AA%D7%A7%D7%9C%D7%94_%D7%A2%D7%9D_%D7%94%D7%AA%D7%A8%D7%90%D7%AA_%22%D7%A0%D7%AA%D7%A4%D7%A1_%D7%97%D7%A8%D7%99%D7%92%22

eranroz added a comment to T325425: VE auto citation is broken in hewiki.

My current speculation:

  • VE perspective:
'restbaseUrl' => $useRestbase ? $coreConfig->get( 'VisualEditorRestbaseURL' ) : false,
'fullRestbaseUrl' => $useRestbase ? $coreConfig->get( 'VisualEditorFullRestbaseURL' ) : false,

so I think useRestbase became from true to false resulting in false. (in VE code)

  • Cite perspective: (modules/ve/ve.ui.CitoidInspector.js)
this.fullRestbaseUrl = mw.config.get( 'wgCitoidConfig' ).fullRestbaseUrl ||
	mw.config.get( 'wgVisualEditorConfig' ).fullRestbaseUrl;

I think we relay on the fallback of VE which is not valid. (e.g wgCitoidConfig seems to be invalid in both hewiki and enwiki).

eranroz added a comment to T306888: Migrate ERANBOT project off of Grid Engine.

Another thing that just occurred to me is EranBot has several other tasks than just "plagiabot"! @eranroz, I'm happy to copy over the cron jobs (or k8s scheduled jobs equivalents, if we end up going that route) as they are written now, but I'm not sure what all of the hewiki and "report on rewrite articles" scripts are supposed to do. This begs the question... with such broad and multi-team interest in the plagiabot task, would it make sense to move it to the copypatrol Toolforge account? That way everything CopyPatrol-related would live under the same roof. Unless I'm missing anything, there's no technical reason to keep it under eranbot.

Similar to Amir, I have no much experience with Django, but css janus works pretty good in many cases.
Just as a good practice, it is good to keep in mind to avoid using inline styles that are LTR/RTL specific (such as style="text-align:left;") but to prefer id/class to make it easier to define it in clean CSS than can be adapted to RTL friendly

eranroz closed T259211: wikibase RepoApi disappeared as Declined.

it's disappointing that JS API that was just exposing the PHP API (part of it) and that is used used by Wikibase itself, isn't available anymore for other consumers :-(
Anyway it seems like JS consumers of wikibase should not relay on that anymore and should use re-implement it themselves or directly access using MW API for now.

@Ladsgroup @daniel I would like to understand what is the approach we would like to go for the long run:

  • Do we want to have JS api for other extensions (the current and future use cases I can think of are Content translation such as T249458 and Client_editing_input) and for gadgets?
  • Do we want to have bare light API without JS wrapping? in which case, when do Wikibase plan to adapt to this approach? (rm RepoApi and change all the uses)

but in the mean time you can still mark jquery.wikibase.linkitem as the dependency instead and use the global variable but I don't recommend it.

  • Wikidata (wikidata client only) and communities (frwiki, hewiki, ruwiki) code is misaligned by removing JS API interface to wikidata that is used by gadgets -> functionality broken -> regression. to get it resolved we need to re-align them
    • communities code can adapt to new API-less wikidata (develop their own wrappers to API)
    • wikidata code can return removed code
    • (or anything in between)

I don't find RepoApi as bad module - it get in the constructor the repository - repository could be Wikidata, or Commons or other Wikibase site.

Restricted Application added a project to T146539: Some input to Citoid extension, may already be URL encoded, and the Citoid extension encodes it again, resulting in double-encoded input to citoid.: User-Ryasmeen.

There is a fix in the frontend, but this bug still exists in the backend.

eranroz added a comment to T121470: Central Global Repository for Templates, Lua modules, and Gadgets.

(yet another example)
I want to fix https://he.wikipedia.org/wiki/Module:Infobox_gene to use getEntity instead of getEntityObject which is legacy alias, it is cloned from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Module:Infobox_gene which is protected.
What is the best way to achieve it?

  1. Ask sysop permissions /templateeditor permissions in enwiki, fix it there, port it back to hewiki, hope that 20 other wikis will update their forks as well?
  2. Update hewiki and let enwiki pull back the changes, ope that 20 other wikis will update their forks as well?
  3. Split the module to logic that is common to all wikis, put it in shared repo, and fix it there

eranroz updated subscribers of T247808: Create sitelink is broken - lookup for current site is wrong.

@Krinkle @hoo - digging further in wikibase source - the module registeration in Wikibase uses packageFiles and callback which I'm not that familiar with.
Anyhow the callback function getSiteConfiguration in ClientHooks.php of wikibase uses cache... Do you have any suggestion what could explain it?

eranroz added a comment to T155290: Add a data-page-only wiki markup header to datasets.

I suggest we adopt approach similar to Lua modules - for example: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Module:Message_box is Lua page, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Module:Message_box/doc is a wikitext page describing it or allowing users to nominate it for deletion.
Each dataset will have (optionally) a description page allowing to add categorization, additional information in non machine readable-wikitext format.
