Callouts[edit]

Switchover/Switchback dates reminder. It's next week!

Switchback:

Traffic: Wednesday, October 10th 2018 09:00 UTC MediaWiki: Wednesday, October 10th 2018: 14:00 UTC Services: Thursday, October 11th 2018 14:30 UTC Media storage/Swift: Thursday, October 11th 2018 15:00 UTC

  • Release Engineering
    • Next week: No train next week, DC switchover
  • Reading Infrastructure:

We would like to ask the Security Team how is the security review of "JsonConfig and Kartographer interaction" (T163827) going and if they need any help with that (It's not blocking anything, but we would like to know the current status)

  • Parsoid

Services (Core Platform) and Parsing team deployed code this week that implements HTML version (content) negotiation protocol alongwith a major version bump of Parsoid HTML from 1.8.0 to 2.0.0 ( https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Specs/HTML/2.0.0 ). As part of this, RESTBase + Parsoid will enforce the HTML version requested in the Accept header. If a version is requested that is different (^ semantics) than what is available in storage, RESTBase will ask Parsoid to get the appropriate version. If Parsoid cannot do that, it will return a HTTP 406. What does it mean for Parsoid clients? If you are requesting a really old version in your Accept header, you are very likely going to get a HTTP 406. If you request an older version (1.7 or 1.8), you will see an additional latency to your requests while Parsoid downgrades the HTML from the more up to date version. So, Parsoid clients should provide an accept header with the most up-to-date version of Parsoid HTML you can handle. Subsequently, you should update your code to handle the newer versions in a timely manner. A longer announcement and wiki docs will be coming out soon.

      • The Performance team is going to be deploying a second set of sitemaps next week, they will also be testing the indexing on mobile in parallel. Mikhail has analyzed the data from the initial Italian sitemap launch and we haven't seen any conclusive evidence that they've helped referrals or increased pageviews. We will repeat the analysis with the other wikis.
