2017/2018[edit]

EddieGP and Stryn: EddieGP added this. Stryn changed to 2018. What's correct? /Johan (WMF) (talk) 16:13, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

EddieGP: Also, another question – what can we expect when it comes to changes, roughly? Just new pages created since? /Johan (WMF) (talk) 16:15, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
@Johan (WMF): Stryn is totally right, this is about last week. To be really precise, correctly it'd be "since the rollout of wmf.21" (last weeks train), which means on group0 (mediawiki, testwikis) last Tuesday, group1 (most wikis) last Wednesday, group2 (wikipedias) last Thursday. I suspected most readers have no clue what the "train" is and won't be much interested in when which wikis started to be affected exactly, so I meant to write "since 2018-02-13", when last weeks train began, as a simplification. I see James just used the term "deployment train" though, so I might be wrong here. I'll leave it up to you to decide which wording/precision is better for the readers of tech news.
On your other question, have a short look on Wikimedia_News. Due to another bug (phab:T186947) statistics were recounted for everything in the s3 database shard (which is all but ~25 wikis) on February 15. Especially wikibooks (which was probably never recounted before) experienced a lot of changes (maybe this is worth another note). For this bug, we now want to recount all wikis and are already done on most of them. Details on this, and which statistics experienced major changes are on the page linked above as well, sorted under 21st of February. But yes, for most wikis we shouldn't see much changes besides now counting the pages that weren't counted due to the bug last week. EddieGP (talk) 20:08, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
Thanks. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 20:14, 22 February 2018 (UTC)
I shortened the item a bit, but linked back to this discussion for more context. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 10:56, 23 February 2018 (UTC)
