Editing[edit]

Collaboration[edit]

  • No deploys this week, but on Monday, planning to enable new RC Filters as a Beta Feature on English Wikipedia (which does have ORES), plus all non-ORES wikis (with the possible exception of German Wikipedia).
  • Preview for when deployments restart:
    • Working on transforming Wikidata user IDs so propagated edits show user responsible
    • Optimization so if we know a query will return 0 results, we won't do the query at all. Some of these no-result queries have extremely poor performance.
    • Other bug fixes

Parsing[edit]

  • Linter: Continuing to address bug reports and tweaking it. Was disabled from large wikis last Friday because of performance issues ( https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T148609 ). Problem is now fixed and will be re-enabled next week. Decided to finish tweaking and improving output before a wider announcement.
