I know it’s late, but shouldn’t the CWS notice be moved to Changes This Week (or even Recent Changes)? 2023-01-23 18:00 UTC was like 4 hours ago. Al12si (talk) 22:22, 23 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

@Al12si Arg. Yes. Good catch. I'll move it to Changes This Week, as we don't have translations for Recent Changes.
(I was just about to send it. But I'll pause for you to work on translations. Please ping me when ready? Thanks!) Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 22:28, 23 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Quiddity (WMF) I’m mostly done but I’d like to figure out a way to translate “timing issue” that’s not misleading. I think I’ve mentioned this but I’m actually not the best person to do Tech News; I learnt all my technical terms in English. Al12si (talk) 22:40, 23 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Quiddity (WMF) I think I’ll call it done. Al12si (talk) 22:44, 23 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Al12si The alternative term I was considering using was "code-conflict issue" - IIUC from the link, the problem was essentially equivalent to an edit-conflict, where the system was trying to do two things at once and they collided. Does that help? (I need lunch, so I'll be paused for ~15 minutes anyway!). Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 22:45, 23 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
@Quiddity (WMF) I know what it means by reading the ticket; the problem is I don’t know how to say it in Cantonese. (I believe the term is also mistranslated in French, though my French isn’t that great; maybe it’s ok there.) I’ve basically translated it to “things happened in the wrong order”.
