Collaboration[edit]

  • RCFilters: 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.
  • Working on GuidedTour to make people aware of RCFilters beta feature
  • Working on next generation of RCFilters, including namespace and user filters, saved settings, and more sophisticated time filtering.
  • DId a deploy Monday to enable RCFilters on English Wikipedia, plus almost all non-ORES wikis. Some issues with preferences, but these have been partly tracked down.
  • Other bug fixes

Community Tech[edit]

No blockers

  • Rollling out Cookie Blocking to all wikis next Monday
