No issue next week – unless you want to write it[edit]

(On the assumption that anyone truly invested in Tech News is watching this page.)

Hey folks!

None of the usual Tech News writers will be available to write the issue next week. Do you want to? Tech/News/Manual has a detailed description of the necessary steps – what to do and when. If not, we'll simply not have an issue next week, and report any new changes in two weeks instead. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 10:27, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

We have now announced that there will be no issue next week; we'll pick up the torch again week after next. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 13:28, 20 August 2019 (UTC)

Three copies problem and missed copies problem for week 37[edit]

We're aware of the two problems with this week's issue. MassMessage has delivered 3 copies of the week 37 issue at different timestamps to some destinations (example), and not delivered at all to other destinations.

There's not anything I can feasibly do en-masse to fix either of these problems, and many of the duplicates have already been individually fixed, so I offer my apologies, and request you please remove 2 of the duplicates where you find them, and copy the newsletter to pages where it is missing but should've been delivered. With thanks, and apologies on behalf of the software (as flawed as us humans!) for which I'll now file a bug (phab:T232379), -- Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 18:47, 9 September 2019 (UTC)
