UI Standardization[edit]

  • Updates:
    • OOUI v0.29.4 & 0.29.5 got released last week, 0.29.3 before (missed SoS last week, therefore mentioning now), highlights:
      • TagMultiselectWidget becomes invalid if there's text in input & there's a `tagLimit` option now, thx Tchanders
      • Icon-only ButtonWidgets can carry a “waterproof” accessible label since 0.29.3, that's only visible for screen readers!

You only have to add a label as usual and additional config option `invisibleLabel: true` Updating documentation on mediawiki.org – https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/OOUI

      • Accessibility measurements across products, like MobileFrontend and portals

Analytics[edit]

  • Updates:
    • Legacy Wikistats home page now links to wikistats2, deprecated older reportcard completely: http://stats.wikimedia.org
    • Upgraded cluster to cloudera 5.15 distro which solved several security issues. Nobody noticed upgrade happened so SUCCESS.
    • Refactoring our privacy policy data deletion scripts for safety [wiki, email]
    • We run into quite an issue when calculating the reconstruction of mw history this month, there was a major refactor on mediawiki that we did not know happened (comment tables) and the way that data is surfaced on labs is very non optimal for analytics use cases. Working with core team/DBAa on finding a better way to expose comment data: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T209031 [wiki,email]
