jberkel added a comment to T164739: Allow page previews to display in wiktionary.

@Mholloway an approximation for the primary definition could be the first gloss/sense of an entry, skipping all obsolete/archaic senses which are sometimes listed first (presumably to illustrate the semantic development). in case of several part of speech headers this is trickier, since there's often no clear ordering

@Noe There are a lot of dictionaries in Wikisource, but most of them are "scan-only". By "tagging", you mean creating an index to entries, so you can quickly navigate to the scanned page?

jberkel added a comment to T154371: Review and deploy Timeless skin.

I really don’t see how having enough technical debt already justifies adding it. There is literally no ability to turn off a skin from a Wikimedia project, so local technicians end up supporting Modern for those three people using it and now will be expected to support Timeless for those five people that would experiment with it.

Ok sounds good. If I understand it correctly you can update labels from within Wiktionary (with a gadget), without leaving the site? What's the difference to just setting entries as "patrolled"?

jberkel added a comment to T138709: Use microformats on Wiktionary to improve term parsing.

Yes, that's the idea, editors wouldn't even notice the fact that extra markup gets generated. However it would also mean to promote the usage of templates wherever possible, and to possibly automate the conversion of non-templated content with bots.

jberkel added a comment to T138709: Use microformats on Wiktionary to improve term parsing.

No I haven't – this was just a first initial test / proof of concept. To me at least it has proven useful, I can now extract usage examples quite easily from the HTML output of the templates, provided that they actually get used (Wiktionary has many cases where templates are recommended but are in fact optional).

jberkel added a comment to T138709: Use microformats on Wiktionary to improve term parsing.

@Lydia_Pintscher OK, so making Wiktionary easier to parse right now will help with that transition. It will be great to have at least some of the data easily accessible.

+1 for HTML dumps. I work with Wiktionary XML dumps and getting the data out there is really tricky. A big portion of the content is generated via Scribunto and therefore not extractable from the XML alone.

jberkel added a comment to T138709: Use microformats on Wiktionary to improve term parsing.

@Lydia_Pintscher I'm aware of the efforts of the Wikidata team, it is great to see that this is happening. The approach present here is meant to be a temporary solution until we have this data. Then there's also the chicken-egg question: we first need to get the data present on Wiktionary into Wikidata. This task will be a lot easier if we already have some semantic information present in the generated output, it would let us automate that process. That's what I meant in the initial task description:

jberkel added a comment to T138709: Use microformats on Wiktionary to improve term parsing.

I finally managed to get some time to work on this and also did some research on microformats. In the last few years this area has become increasingly confusing with a variety of options (microformats1/2, W3C microdata, schema.org, RDFa (lite), JSON-LD etc).

Is there an easy way to set up one (or even several) WikiData / Wiktionary integration sandboxes where interested parties could just try out things and experiment? I think prototyping an integration with a small subset of the data could be very beneficial. It would allow us to get some quick feedback on which kind of ideas could work (and where the problem areas are). Planning everything upfront is almost impossible, given the ambition of this project.
