@dbarratt - When I try to submit the form on the web interface, I get "Error authenticating. Resetting. Please try again." Is that related to the callback issue?

@dbarratt - I've added you as a maintainer to the citations and citations-dev tool forge projects. All testing should be done in citations-dev and then once it's running smoothly, the code can be moved to the main citations tool as well. Web interface for citations-dev: https://tools.wmflabs.org/citations-dev/

A volunteer dev started working on this recently. Their pull request is at https://github.com/ms609/citation-bot/pull/1624. A good starting point would be to review the patch and see how far they got.

Oh yeah, the community really wants Citation bot to stop doing user-activated edits as Citation bot. In fact they've debated blocking the bot because of it.

I was thinking that we not only authenticate with OAuth but also use the OAuth credentials to make the actual edit as well (similar to how IABot's user activated edits work). That way blocked users would be blocked from making the edits automatically and we would always be able to prove who made a particular Citation bot edit (and it couldn't be denied as spoofing).

@Krenair - The actual uploading is handled by urluploader, but UploadWizard has to do a lot of communicating with Flickr's API beforehand for information. Is there some kind of proxy API it should be using for that?

kaldari added a comment to T135963: Add support for Content-Security-Policy (CSP) headers in MediaWiki.

@Bawolff - What is now the correct way to import images to Commons from 3rd party websites on the client-side? For example, when I currently try to import images from Flickr using UploadWizard, I get the following error:

[Report Only] Refused to connect to 'https://api.flickr.com/services/rest/?&format=json&nojsoncallback=1&method=flickr.photos.licenses.getInfo' because it violates the following Content Security Policy directive: "default-src 'self' data: blob: https://upload.wikimedia.org meta.wikimedia.org *.wikimedia.org *.wikipedia.org *.wikinews.org *.wiktionary.org *.wikibooks.org *.wikiversity.org *.wikisource.org wikisource.org *.wikiquote.org *.wikidata.org *.wikivoyage.org *.mediawiki.org wikimedia.org". Note that 'connect-src' was not explicitly set, so 'default-src' is used as a fallback.

Should we add api.flickr.com to the CSP or does UploadWizard need to be refactored somehow?

@Nemo_bis - No, Maarten says he doesn't work on pull tools, only push, and for iNaturalist it seems like pull is a better fit (since we don't really want to import everything from iNat). I've started working on a gadget for this, which you can see at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Kaldari/inat2commons.js. The idea is that if you're on a Commons category page for a taxon, there will be an "Import from iNaturalist" button, which will let you choose freely licensed iNat images of that taxon (based on the mapping in Wikidata) to import into the category. One tricky part is that because Wikidata only supports 1-to-1 sitelinks for Commons, half the taxon categories on Commons have a Q ID, but the ones that also have a Gallery page don't have a Q ID (since it's associated with the Gallery page instead). There are a few different ways we could work around this, but it does introduce some complexity to the task.

@Nuria, @Milimetric - Crap, I didn't mean to sound hostile. I love the Analytics Engineering team! Y'all are literally the smartest people I know. Right before I wrote that comment, I had had a 1:1 meeting with Kate which consisted mainly of me explaining the pain points that Product has around data analysis. I was pointing out this ticket to her as an example of cases where product has a hard time getting basic ball-park data to help with decision making and community discussions (since it was directly related to our discussion). It wasn't meant as a criticism of the Analytics Engineering team. I'm sorry if the lack of context made it seem that way! My sincere apologies.

@kzimmerman - Since Analytics was unable to provide any information for us, we did the work ourselves (per T166269#3346965). I think this ticket is a great example of Analytics' difficulty with providing Product with basic ball-park data to help with decision-making and community discussions due to Analytics' self-imposed requirements for perfect data (which is almost never possible in the context of Wikipedia). We need some sort of process where we can get Analysts to give us ball-park data quickly, rather than waiting months for reports that never materialize. This is one of the main reasons why PMs are asking for dashboards.

kaldari added a comment to T216152: AMC Navigation - add new links to main menu with click tracking.

@alexhollender - Personally, I never go directly to Special:Logs. It's almost always from a user or page specific link (with preset query parameters). It's not a terrible idea though. Putting Wikipedia:ArticlesForDeletion in the sidebar seems a bit strange, though. What would be more useful, IMO, would be having Special:MovePage in the sidebar, as otherwise it is quite difficult to move a page manually on mobile: you have to manually go to Special:MovePage, and remember the exact title of the page you wanted to move, which is often tricky if you're moving the page due to a misspelling or bad title. There should be a way to reach Special:MovePage directly from the article context (and have the title pre-filled as it is on desktop). This may not be a commonly visited special page, but it provides an essential function.

kaldari added a comment to T211881: graphoid: Code stewardship request.

Note that current versions of Vega (since 4.3.0) need ES6 support, so we would either need to transpile Vega with Babel (slightly increasing the JS footprint) or keep Vega locked at an older version. Some back of the envelope calculations:
Minified transpiled Vega core: 442 KB
Minified d3: 222KB
Total extra JS load (minimum): 664 KB
Obviously, we couldn't load that for every page as it would more than double our JS load per page, and we probably wouldn't even want to top load it on pages that needed it. It seems most realistic that we would end-load it on pages that need it and show a spinner in place of the graph until then (as suggested above).

kaldari added a comment to T211470: selenium tests are flaky under php7 on TemplateWizard.

@Samwilson - Do you want to disable these tests in the meantime? They seem to be causing trouble: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/mediawiki/extensions/TemplateWizard/+/499879/

If it seems like this will cause too many expensive queries, we can live without it.

kaldari added a comment to T196839: Tapping in the editing area of the mobile visual editor causes the page to scroll up in Firefox for Android.

@Nickps, @Neil_P._Quinn_WMF - Can either of you confirm that this bug still exists? The scrolling code for mobile editing has been significantly refactored.

kaldari added a comment to T218812: Provide the ability to have time-delayed or time-offset jobs in the job queue.

@aezell - There's a whole slew of related (but more specific) tasks in Phabricator. Not sure how these should best be organized...

Wow, that's super complicated. Have y'all considered just using a PNG pokey like the Echo overlay?

kaldari added a comment to T217605: Unable to upload files larger than ~2MB on slow connections.

I understand the main issue here is my connectivity, but I'm wondering if there's some way we could work around the connectivity problems. When I'm on a shitty connection, which is pretty often, especially when I travel to other countries, I can pretty much forget about uploading anything to Commons, which is unfortunate. It looks like T205619 is probably the same issue.

@Aklapper - I don't know if this helps, but I tried running PingPlotter while I was doing the upload and monitored connectivity to text-lb.eqiad.wikimedia.org. For the first 5 minutes I'm just running the monitor, then I start trying to upload (which is where you can see the latency shoot up), then the upload gives up after a couple minutes and the chart goes back to normal:


This is on an AT&T DSL connection in Oakland with ~0.5 Mbps upload speed trying to upload a 2.1 MB file. Fails using either Special:UploadWizard or Special:Upload.
