Shouldn't we use nofollow on all placeholders? How does following links from placeholders help us? The pages reachable from there are probably reachable from other places as well. I don't think it makes much of a difference.

You will need to assign the return value of your array_replace calls to something, so changing array_replace($wgWBRepoSettings, $wikibaseRepoConfig); to $wgWBRepoSettings = array_replace($wgWBRepoSettings, $wikibaseRepoConfig); should do.

hoo added a comment to T154315: Videos sometimes loaded twice in Firefox when played with the timed media handler player.

Note: There are no transcodes for these videos available right now, so the actually uploaded 1080p VP8 is used.

With something like the following, we could manually run the transcodes in question on one of the video scalers:

That sounds sensible, thanks @TheDJ. Shall we open a new bug about the player loading the files twice?

Thanks for the reply. Is that an issue of Commons or an issue of the video file itself?

I just looked into this, and for me in Firefox 50, (some of) the videos only play once their entirety has been downloaded twice(!).

You actually ran across https://chars.suikawiki.org/char/1D50A as far as I see. The page in question would be https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discussioni_utente:%F0%9D%94%8A then.

hoo added a comment to T151717: Usage tracking: record which statement group is used.

I think a good way to go about this tracking would be by overriding the Lua direct access method for the table that represents the entity.

This can be done via an “__index” metamethod that would log statement usage (see this example of tracking: https://www.lua.org/pil/13.4.4.html). A “loggingtable” proxy object would access/track the actual object/table containing the entity. This should be a small change in modules using Wikidata.
