I find tables easier to read when, instead than being empty, a field says "unassigned" and its cell is red. Not all tables have "unassigned" rather than the empty cell though, and I was wondering if more consistency would be possible/desirable. TY.

We only care about "Unassigned" status for Wikimedia production code.

No, I meant all of the tables except #Operations/systems administration and #Analytics (both of which look quite out of date :-().

I agree that we should use this everywhere, but I don't know enough about those areas to edit.

Should the Portals project (i.e., be listed here? If so, where? It's not an extension.

What James said, and thank you!

Add links to Gerrit review activity per repository?

Changing repository name in the link should be enough. A simple script should be able to add new column to the table with that data. I didn't test it yet, but it should not be a lot of work. If that's something that would be useful, I can give it a try. I can generate a test page, copying Developers/Maintainers and adding activity data to it. Let me know.

@ZFilipin (WMF) Thanks for the reply! Not sure if it's worth to display a number directIy in a table (one click less but hard to find one criterion which is meaningful enough), and I think that improving Template:MaintainerLinksExtension makes more sense than adding another column - that template already has a "Contributors" item which is quite related to what I'm proposing ("Last code review activity" or something like that)?

Mostly empty, often outdated, and could be merged into Maintainers anyway.

Opinions? Maybe @JBranaa (WMF)?

Greg (WMF) (talkcontribs)

I'm of two minds about it. It is a historical status for people who are working with stewards/maintainers to be able to take on the work in the future.

But, in reality, if that's happening, that training is most likely a fluid activity and hopefully temporary (with someone either becoming a part of the stewardship group or not). So... as I've typed this out I think I agree that the information gain is minimal.

But I'd still like @JBranaa (WMF)to provide his feedback as he's the owner here and I'm basically over-stepping his work ;)

@Yaron Koren, your name is listed twice under Developers/Maintainers#Key extensions as the primary maintainer of these extensions, with a question mark. If you do keep these extensions up to date, then please remove the question mark. If you don't, then please remove your name completely. Thanks!

Yaron Koren (talkcontribs)

Oh, I didn't know about this page. I just update that list.
