whym added a comment to T156844: Prep to decommission old dbstore hosts (db1046, db1047).

whym added a comment to T119791: Add "level=n" option to the template for specifying the heading level of the sections to be archived.

I'm not sure https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/258988/ does what this task asks for. I'm not saying the patch is not useful, but the patch seems to solve a different issue.

whym added a comment to T121604: Examine username maximum length limit in MediaWiki and Wikimedia.

I notice that around half of the top 10 longest names in jawiki are blocked accounts. Perhaps if you know how, you could add the SQL (that will add a column for blocked-status) to your quarry tasks, and then I'll update mine?

whym added a comment to T110107: archivebot does not archive MediaWiki message delivery.

@Mpaa: Good point. In light of that, I'd suggest closing this as not done. It appears the problem was in the text, not in the bot.

whym added a comment to T110107: archivebot does not archive MediaWiki message delivery.

As mentioned, archivebot.py as of now requires a well-formed localized timestamp. Would it be a good idea to modify it recognize English timestamps and localized timestamps on a non-English wiki?

whym closed T85311: archivebot.py does not update counter as "Resolved".

I believe this was caused by the canonical (local-language) namespace prefix of the template being not recognized. In the old archivebot only English prefixes worked properly. After gerrit:136532 (merged Feb 20, 2015) it should support both English and localized ones.

whym added a comment to T104046: remove superfluous sleep between archiving each page.

I added the -sleep option to archivebot in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/222727/ in July - whether or not it should go is up to discussion. (Sorry for not linking the change here.)

For Cat's sake, how could you find these queries, @whym? They have no names, and they are in draft.

whym added a comment to T111306: Recruit event scout for November IETF meeting in preparation for #WikiDev16.

Thanks @Nemo_bis for the ping. Assuming the travel happens, I wonder if the event scout would be interested in spending a little bit of time with local Wikimedia volunteers (and perhaps OSS engineers) while their visit. A tech talk or just a casual meetup might be great to have.

@AndyRussG: I think @Nemo_bis meant that in some procedures you need to calculate "how many edits editor X has made in the last Y days" which no other API seems to support.
