jayvdb added a comment to T129546: Support preserving external links in pasted HTML content.

I dont care much about the style, but dropping links seems unnecessary, except as an odd abuse prevention mechanism. Perhaps this could be allowed on more internal wikis like mediawiki.org and meta, which see more content copy-pasted from office documents by staff, devs and affiliates.

I am always interested in mentoring it, but refuse to do it without the support of a real community using FlaggedRevs, via a knowledgeable community member as co-mentor.
We've tried to find one , and failed. (see history of this task) I'll be very happy if you succeed where I have failed.
I've especially tried to solicit Wikimedia Indonesia to provided a co-mentor from the Indonesian community which uses FlaggedRevs , but that hasnt worked in the past either. I will try that again this year, and will also look more broadly in the Indonesian community.

Hi @Xqt, this was taken into account in the development. The live tests can be activated using an environment variable. see recent addition to tests/README.rst . Maybe we want to update the Travis builds on the main repo to always do live tests.

This wouldnt be suitable for a tech project, as there are only tiny chunks left to write after this patch, and git-repo is intentionally limited in what functionality is added - all features must be sensible in most backends.

PYWIKIBOT2_TEST_ are easy. They are only used in our tests. Travis CI configs will be effected. Some forks may be using these in their CI, which will break if they are renamed. I suspect this isnt a big enough problem to worry about. Easy to fix.

sorry I missed this; could you rebase the patch and submit to travis so we can see if it doesnt break anything (reflinks has good tests, so that is sufficient to verify nothing is broken). Then make sure that one of the tests tries to fetch a 2 Mb PDF, and emit a warning to indicate that the document was trimmed.

c.f. https://github.com/PyCQA/pydocstyle/pull/227 - this __all__ problem shouldnt exist in pydocstyle. (I'm still investigating, and this doesnt impact the current CR)

Note that this change is removing the existing, working, __all__ checking. It likely brings in new features and bugs fixes, so probably is worth that, but then we need to get __all__ checking working again.

jayvdb added a comment to T183663: Improve the maintenance script that download Wikimedia database dump.

No more tasks for this script should be created, as it currently untested, and mostly untestable by design.
It is not acceptable to be having students doing tasks which are not tested. The result is low quality work, and a poor educational experience for the students.
We should be increasing test coverage, not decreasing it.
