kaldari added a comment to T199404: MediaViewer displays alt text rather than caption or description for images in infoboxes.

@Tgr - Thanks for the info. Fixed it in the template: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Infobox_writer&diff=prev&oldid=855362428.

kaldari added a comment to T197083: Gerrit has created duplicate accounts for some users.

BTW, I noticed that some of the old bogus accounts like "Kaldari" (uppercase) and "kaldari2" are now gone (or merged?). Would it be possible to delete or merge my temporary account I made to work around the bug (which also uses rkaldari@wikimedia.org)? No rush, just wanted to ask in case it's easy now. Thanks!

kaldari added a comment to T154843: New Wikitext Editor: Major improvement to load time and preview time.

@Esanders: I tried benchmarking this again, but got some weird results. On the article United States, the first two times I tried to load it with NWE, I got a timeout error from the editor after 60 seconds: "Error loading data from server". After that, however, loading was smooth and fast: typically about 10 seconds or less. Any idea what may have caused the delays initially? Maybe a missing server-side cache? (It's also possible this was just an issue on my end with my internet connection.)

kaldari added a comment to T201207: [Epic] SVG Translate wishlist project.

Regarding things like repositioning text-boxes, changing text size, combining text boxes, etc. my personal opinion is that that sort of work should be done in Inkscape (or other SVG editors), not a translation tool. Modifying positioning data in SVGs can actually be very complicated due to grouped objects, different methods of scaling, etc. It's not like a PNG where you only have to move pixels around. This tool should be for doing one thing and doing it well: translations (especially since everyone on the internet has access to Inkscape for all the other SVG editing tasks).

kaldari added a comment to T201253: Special:NewPagesFeed should ignore ptrp_reviewed status for Drafts.

I guess the obvious follow-up question is what should updatePageTriageQueue.php do with drafts? I guess nothing since even old drafts (that are still drafts) can potentially be re-reviewed.

@SBisson, @Catrope: There's one more loose end I didn't notice until now: We need to update PageTriage/cron/updatePageTriageQueue.php to not automatically remove drafts older than 30 days (regardless of their ptrp_reviewed state). This is a cron script that is run daily in production. I'm reopening this ticket to handle it since it probably needs to be addressed immediately (since the new branch will be cut tomorrow).

@thcipriani, @mmodell: Just to let you know, I would be totally fine with having all my gerrit accounts deleted (and their history, etc.), if it meant I could successfully use gerrit again under the username kaldari (as that's the username I've been using for 8+ years and that everyone knows). I've been locked out of my account for 2 months now, and I know y'all are doing your best to address the problem, but maybe it's time to consider more drastic ideas. Any thoughts on that?

When we migrate the image scalers to Debian stretch we'll have a refreshed graphics library stack.

@MoritzMuehlenhoff: It looks like the migration of the image scalars to Debian stretch is complete, but this bug is still present and it doesn't look like a refreshed graphics stack was included in the upgrade: https://tools.wmflabs.org/apt-browser/stretch-wikimedia/main/. Now that the migration is complete, could we manually refresh the graphics stack (or at least librsvg and its dependencies)?

kaldari added a comment to T201420: Page creation data no longer updates.

Hmm, that's unfortunate. I think @Nettrom would be the best person to answer your question: How important do you think it would be to backfill the missing data? I'm not aware of any current WMF projects that are using page creation metrics (now that ACTRIAL is over). Obviously, it would be a minor problem for NPP folks, but I think they could survive without it.

kaldari added a comment to T201476: [4 hours] Spike: How hard would it be to track number of edits saved that used TemplateWizard?.

We can scan wikitext in the database for template tags, right? Could we then cross-reference that with the editor used to make those edits? That is, can we see something like, "Here's an edit that has a template and that edit was made with the wikitext editor, therefore, the template was inserted with template wizard." The problem is if they just type or copy/paste the template tag into the editor. We'd have to have a date filter here to only check edits made after the TemplateWizard was enabled on that wiki.

@Niharika: Hmm, I'm not sure, but somehow we have to get folks to actually do this. The longer we wait, the harder it is to change, e.g. [1], and the more we risk someone leaving the WMF and taking their code with them (as unlikely as that may be). FYI, I've made you an "owner" of the Wikimedia GitHub project, so you should be able to move your repo at least.

kaldari added a comment to T201207: [Epic] SVG Translate wishlist project.

Given the following factors...

  • The translate tool on Tool Forge is already sort of working (but is buggy and uploading is broken)
  • Reviving the TranslateSVG extensions is likely to require a good deal of refactoring (it's 7 years old) and may require work on the Translate extension as well (which is complicated)
  • We don't have a lot of time to work on this project (basically 3 months until next Wishlist Survey) and are also working on another project simultaneously
  • The original Wishlist Survey proposal suggested fixing the tool rather than the extension...

I'm leaning towards working on the Tool Forge tool.

My initial thought is that regular requests to set preferences that are already set globally should fail by default, but the pref setting API should return a warning or error informing the requesting software that the preference was not successfully set due to the global preference. The requesting software can then inform the user, override the global pref (via the GlobalPrefs API), or do nothing.

kaldari added a comment to T194434: Show recently used templates on the home screen for TemplateWizard.

@Volker_E: Why do we need to make the full list item clickable? It's clear that the name of the template is a link. Personally, I hate this trend of making areas clickable rather than text or buttons. It makes it impossible to do normal browser functions like copying and pasting text.

kaldari added a comment to T198040: Google OCR button is not providing other language text output in Wikisource ..

This is probably going to be a WONTFIX. In order for Google OCR to work well, it needs to know what language it's reading. (You would be surprised at how bad it is at guessing.) Currently when you click the Google OCR button, it passes the language code for that wiki (under the assumption that most text on that wiki is going to be in the content language. We could add another step where it asks for the language explicitly, but that would needlessly slow down the process for the 99% of cases where the language of the text matches the language of the wiki. One workaround is to use https://tools.wmflabs.org/ws-google-ocr/ in those cases, since it allows you to specify the language of the text.

kaldari added a comment to T145912: Create new Special:RangeContributions page to support viewing contributions across an IP range.

The lease time for an IP address can be very short, and there are no guarantee the IP address won't be reclaimed. The lease time is typically shorter for more crowded areas. Without knowing the lease time this will still be guesswork, only automated guesswork.

True, but that's the same for Special:Contributions. Regardless of whether you're talking about a single IP address or a range, there is no guarantee that it hasn't been reassigned. I think admins that do range blocks know that. Perhaps it would be worth adding more documentation to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Range_blocks though.

kaldari added a comment to T195796: New Pages Feed: generate ORES scores (3.1).

We still need to resolve two open questions around the draftquality model:
On which revision(s) should it be scored: earliest, latest, or all?

Probably latest.

How long should scores be retained? The original intention was to delete them after 30 days, but that is flexible.

We would need the draftquality scores to be retained for at least 90 days (assuming we are only retaining one score per article).

kaldari added a comment to T104552: Change GeoData's license away from non-OSI approved WTFPL.

Also, if you read the full notes of the OSI meeting, you'll see that they didn't ultimately reject the WTFPL due to any reasons related to public domain in Europe. They rejected approving it because the license is redundant to an existing approved license, the "Fair License". Both licenses essentially say you can do whatever you want with the work as long as you retain the license. Apparently the WTFPL wasn't unique enough to be approved as the OSI doesn't accept "vanity and duplicative Licenses" regardless of whether they are free or not.

kaldari closed T104552: Change GeoData's license away from non-OSI approved WTFPL as Declined.

@Ricordisamoa - WTFPL is not a public domain dedication (despite the OSI's flippant dismissal). It doesn't renounce or waive the author's copyrights. It is simply an EXTREMELY permissive free license. The FSF considers it a GPL-compatible free license, although they obviously don't support its use since it isn't copyleft. The fact that there is no legal concept of public domain in Europe has no bearing on the WTFPL since it isn't a public domain dedication. As the Wikipedia articles says: "The license differs from public domain in that an author can use it even if they do not necessarily have the ability to place their work in the public domain according to their local laws."
