Rollback[edit]

Hello, Quiddity. I belive the rollback item needs more clarification. Some wikis were reverted. I can't understand from the text either the new version continues on all the rest wikis, or it did not started there. IKhitron (talk) 09:35, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi IKhitron. Yes, I had just added that line as a placeholder until it was clear whether the deployment train was going to proceed this week (per this email). I was going to add a link today, if that line needed to stay. However, it looks like they've fixed everything now, so I will remove the line as soon as I've confirmed this.
(Sidenote: I copied the text from Tech/News/2017/22. I wasn't sure whether it was better to try to use the translation memory system (as I did), or to write it from scratch. I'll try to use clearer wording, when (if!) this happens again.) Thanks! Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 19:13, 9 February 2018 (UTC)
Thank you. IKhitron (talk) 19:45, 9 February 2018 (UTC)

New item[edit]

Not sure if this is too late to go out, but, we rolled out some changes to how we count linter errors to address performance concerns. While we figure out a better solution to the problem, we are temporarily reporting estimated counts instead of actual counts. So, wikis might see their linter counts artificially inflated till that time. Here is a proposed announcement: "Because of some performance-related fixes, Linter is now reporting estimated error counts instead of actual counts. Therefore, wikis might notice an artificial increase in error counts. Once we figure out a better solution to the performance problem, this will be fixed.".

Visual diffs[edit]

Hello, Johan. Are you sure it really works? I can't see it on beta page. And the task is open. IKhitron (talk) 15:17, 15 February 2018 (UTC)

Hi IKhitron, I'm not intimately familiar with last week's issue, since I only distributed it, but didn't write it. I think Quiddity is better suited to answer questions about the content. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 15:41, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
IKhitron It looks like they're in the process of fixing it, right now: phab:T185708#3976322. Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 17:52, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
I see, thank you. IKhitron (talk) 17:54, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
