On LQT archives
There are some hundreds pages which were mass-added to LiquidThreads without a previous history and are now empty archives, if you're interested. It's rather easy to find them with a query, see e.g. quarry:query/9157 which can be easily improved; where a wikitext page existed before, it would be better to move it back into its place.

A tremendous time!
I am glad to announce the official creation of the user group for Wiktionaries! You mentioned a polite interests for this great adventure and so, here it is!
You're welcome to participate to this brand new collective exploration of the lexicoworld by helping to translate in German, find a fancy logo, contact people or mention places where the announce have to be made. There is still a lot to do, only main pages are there. Soon, I will translate some cool stuff we made in French: 2015 summary, skills list, banner and more. I also plan to visit every community so help welcome! Spread the word Noé (talk) 00:08, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
RDF Julian Gregorian conversion
I observe you seem to be the sole contributor to mediawiki-extensions-Wikibase/repo/includes/Rdf/JulianDateTimeValueCleaner.php
To test this code, I adapted it to a php script that could be run from the Windows command line, and found that the earliest supported date is January 2, 4713 BC. Since the behavior of php functions such as cal_to_jd and jdtogregorian is not documented with respect to ancient dates, may I suggest the earliest supported date be documented somewhere (perhaps as a source code comment).

- I'm very interested in date related code, but in this case it was not written by me. The fact that the RDF export just fails and does not export anything for Julian dates that exceed the range PHP's date conversion functions support is, in my opinion, a bug that should be reported on Phabricator and fixed. I created phab:T146356. --Thiemo Mättig (WMDE) 09:54, 22 September 2016 (UTC)
