Core Platform[edit]

  • Blocking:
    • Potentially Wikidata/WMDE: Mentioned 2 times in SoS already with no result: In the Data Bridge work (editing Wikidata items from Wikipedia) we have encountered problems with Special:EntityData serving stale (old) data. The problem is quite old: phab:T128486. We are looking for a team/person with whom we could get some clarity on the current state of the cache solutions on WMF cluster, and figure out how to get phab:T128486 unstuck.
