വിക്കിഗ്രന്ഥശാലയെ സംബന്ധിച്ചിടത്തോളം, അതിന്റെ ഏറ്റവും ആത്യന്തികമായ ലക്ഷ്യം, എങ്ങനെയായിരുന്നോ ഒരു പുസ്തകം അതിന്റെ n-th പതിപ്പിൽ പ്രസാധനം ചെയ്തിരുന്നതു് അതേപോലെത്തന്നെ (അതിലെ എല്ലാ തെറ്റുകുറ്റങ്ങളും അക്ഷരരൂപങ്ങളും അടക്കം) ഡിജിറ്റൽ ആയും സ്വതന്ത്രമായും ലഭ്യമാക്കുക എന്നതാണു്. ഇതിൽ പിക്സൽ ഇമേജു് രൂപവും ടെക്സ്റ്റ് രൂപവും ഉൾപ്പെടും. ടെക്സ്റ്റ് രൂപം തന്നെ ഏറ്റവും ഒടുവിലെ ഘട്ടം ഇമേജിന്റെ അതേ ദൃശ്യരൂപത്തിൽ എന്നാൽ (ഓപ്പൺ ഓഫീസ്/വേർഡ്/PDF) ഘടനയോടെ ഉപയോക്താവിനു് പേജ് ആയോ അദ്ധ്യായമായോ മുഴുവൻ പുസ്തകമായോ ലഭ്യമാവണം.
 
ഈ അടിസ്ഥാനലക്ഷ്യം എപ്പോഴും മുമ്പിൽ കണ്ടുകൊണ്ടിരിക്കുകയാണെങ്കിൽ ഗ്രന്ഥശാലയ്ക്കു് ആവശ്യമായ മാതൃകകൾ സൃഷ്ടിച്ചെടുക്കാൻ വിഷമമില്ല.
 
ഇതിനുപരി കൂടുതൽ ഫീച്ചറുകൾ എന്ന നിലയിൽ ഡാറ്റാ വെക്ടറുകൾ ചേർക്കാമോ എന്നു നോക്കാം.

:::*എന്നീ തരത്തിലുള്ള വെക്ടറുകൾ അകത്തോട്ടും പുറത്തുനിന്നും വിക്കിഗ്രന്ഥശാലയിൽ embed ചെയ്യാൻ സ്കോപ്പുണ്ടു്. പക്ഷേ, ഇതിനൊക്കെ ഇപ്പോഴുള്ളതിനേക്കാൾ നല്ല സൗകര്യങ്ങൾ വിക്കിഡാറ്റ പുരോഗമിക്കുന്നതോടുകൂടി ഉണ്ടാവും.
 
നാം ഇപ്പോൾ ചെയ്യുന്നതു ശരിയാണോ?
:: ഇപ്പോൾ ചെയ്തുകൊണ്ടിരിക്കുന്നതിൽ പുനരുപയോഗിക്കാവുന്നതും ആവർത്തിക്കേണ്ടി വരാത്തതും എല്ലാം ശരിയാണു്. ഉദാഹരണം: ടൈപ്പിങ്ങ് / ടെക്സ്റ്റ് കൺവേർഷൻ. അതേ സമയം പല പുസ്തകങ്ങളുടെയും PDF/DjView ഇമേജുകൾ അപ്‌ലോഡ് ചെയ്യുന്നതു് പലപ്പോഴും തൽക്കാലത്തെ ടെക്സ്റ്റ് ടൈപ്പിങ്ങിനെ സഹായിക്കാൻ മാത്രമേ ഉതകൂ. ഇന്നല്ലെങ്കിൽ നാളെ, മൂലപ്രസാധനത്തിന്റെ പതിപ്പു് കൂടുതൽ വ്യക്തതയോടെ സ്കാൻ ചെയ്തു് സൈറ്റിൽ നിക്ഷേപിക്കേണ്ടി വരും. (അല്ലെങ്കിൽ അതേപോലെയിരിക്കുന്ന ഒരു പകർപ്പ് odt/doc/pdf/epub/djview/zim തുടങ്ങിയ ഏതാനും ഫോർമാറ്റുകളിൽ റെൻഡർ ചെയ്യത്തക്ക സൗകര്യം ഉണ്ടാവേണ്ടി വരും). ഇപ്പോൾ നാം സ്കാൻ ചെയ്തു കയറ്റുന്ന ഇമേജ് ഫയലുകളുടെ പ്രശ്നങ്ങൾ (1. ഭാഗികമായ പകർപ്പവകാശം 2. അക്ഷരരൂപങ്ങളുടെ വ്യത്യാസവും പിൽക്കാലത്തു നടന്ന അക്ഷരസംശോധനവും. 3. ടൈപ്പ് സെറ്റിങ്ങ് ഫോർമാറ്റിലുള്ള വ്യത്യാസങ്ങൾ) ആ ഘട്ടത്തിലാണു് പ്രകടമായി വരിക.
 
:ഇത്ര സുന്ദരമായ രൂപമൊക്കെ എന്നേക്കു ശരിയാവും?
 
::കുറേ കാലമെടുത്തു എന്നുവരാം. പ്രൊജക്റ്റ് ഗുട്ടൻബർഗ്ഗ് ആണു് നമുക്കു മുമ്പിലുള്ള ഏറ്റവും വിശാലമായ മാതൃക. ആദ്യം പ്ലേയിൻ ടെക്സ്റ്റ് ലഭ്യമാക്കുക, പിന്നീട് ഫോർമാറ്റെഡ് ടെക്സ്റ്റും റെൻഡേർഡ് ടെക്സ്റ്റും റെൻഡേർഡ് ശബ്ദവും മറ്റും ലഭ്യമാക്കുക എന്നതാണു് ഗുട്ടൻബർഗ്ഗിലെ മുൻഗണനാക്രമം. കൂടുതൽ ആളുകളും കമ്പ്യൂട്ടിങ്ങ് സങ്കേതങ്ങളും വിക്കിഡാറ്റ പോലുള്ള പദ്ധതികലും വരുന്നതോടെ അഞ്ചുപത്തുകൊല്ലത്തിനുള്ളിൽ എന്നാണു് എനിക്കു തോന്നുന്നതു്.
 
അതുവരേയ്ക്കും വേറെ ഒന്നും ചെയ്യാനില്ലേ?
::ഉവ്വുവ്വ്. ടൈപ്പ് ചെയ്തുകൊണ്ടിരിക്കുന്നതു് തുടരാം. പ്രൂഫ് റീഡിങ്ങ് പല ഘട്ടങ്ങളായും നിർവചിച്ച് അവയിലെ പ്രാഥമികഘട്ടങ്ങൾ തുടങ്ങിവെക്കാം. ഓപ്പൺ ഡോക്യുമെന്റ് പോലുള്ള സ്റ്റാൻഡാർഡ് ഫോർമാറ്റുകളിലും CSSലും സ്റ്റൈൽ ഷീറ്റുകളുടെ ഒരു ലൈബ്രറിയുണ്ടാക്കിവെക്കാം. Math, SVG ഘടനകളിൽ ജോലി തുടങ്ങാം. പർവ്വങ്ങളുടേയും അദ്ധ്യായങ്ങളുടേയും (ലഭ്യമായാൽ പേജുകളുടെ അടക്കം) മറ്റും ഘടനകൾ ശരിയാക്കിവെക്കാം. പകർപ്പവകാശം കഴിഞ്ഞ ടൈപ്പുകൾ പുതിയ ഫോണ്ടുകളാക്കി (പുറത്തു്) സംഭരിച്ചുവെക്കാം. ഇതുപോലുള്ള ഒരു പാടുജോലികൾ ഇപ്പോഴേ തുടങ്ങാവുന്നവയാണു്.
 
: ആശ്വാസകരമായ ഒരു കാര്യം സ്റ്റൈൽ ഷീറ്റുകളാണു്. പഴയ പുസ്തകങ്ങളിൽ മൊത്തമായി ഉപയോഗിച്ചിട്ടുള്ള സ്റ്റൈലുകളും ടൈപ്പ് ഫേസുകളും ഏതാനും നൂറുകണക്കിനേ വരൂ. ഇവയെല്ലാം ഒരിക്കൽ സജ്ജമാക്കിവെച്ചാൽ ഏതു പുസ്തകത്തിന്റെ ഏതു മൂലരൂപം വേണമെങ്കിലും നമുക്കു് പുനർനിർമ്മിക്കാവുന്നതേയുള്ളൂ.
അപ്പോൾ നിഘണ്ടുവിന്റെ കാര്യം?
::നിഘണ്ടു ആയാലും വിക്കി ഗ്രന്ഥശാലയെ സംബന്ധിച്ചിടത്തോളം അടിസ്ഥാനാശയങ്ങളിൽ വ്യത്യാസമൊന്നുമില്ല. അതിൽനിന്നും ടെക്സ്റ്റിന്റെ പുനരുപയോഗം വിക്കിനിഘണ്ടുവിലേക്കു വേണ്ടി നടത്താമെന്ന വ്യത്യസ്ഥതയേ ഉള്ളൂ. ഒരു ഉദാഹരണത്തിനു് ഒരു നിഘണ്ടുവിന്റെ മൂലഗ്രന്ഥത്തിൽ ഒരക്ഷരത്തെറ്റ് (വ്യക്തമായും അച്ചടിപ്പിശാച്) ഉണ്ടായിരുന്നു എന്നിരിക്കട്ടെ. വിക്കിഗ്രന്ഥശാലയിൽ ആ അച്ചടിപ്പിശാച് അതേ പോലെത്തന്നെ ഉണ്ടായിരിക്കണം. എന്നാൽ വിക്കിനിഘണ്ടുവിൽ അതു തിരുത്തിയ രൂപമായിരിക്കണം കാണേണ്ടതു്.
അതിനാൽ പൊതുവായ മാനദണ്ഡങ്ങൾ എന്താണോഅതുതന്നെയാണു് നിഘണ്ടുവിനും ബാധകമാവുക.

== IMPORTANT: Admin activity review ==
 
Hello. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was recently adopted by [[:m:Requests for comment/Activity levels of advanced administrative rights holders|global community consensus]] (your community received a notice about the discussion). According to this policy, the [[:m:stewards|stewards]] are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the new [[:m:Admin activity review|admin activity review]] here.
 
We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):
#Peringz (bureaucrat)
 
These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.
 
However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the [[:m:Stewards' noticeboard|stewards on Meta-Wiki]] so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki. Thanks, '''[[User:Rschen7754|Rs]][[User talk:Rschen7754|chen]][[Special:Contributions/Rschen7754|7754]]''' 19:04, 16 ഓഗസ്റ്റ് 2014 (UTC)

A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was adopted by [[:m:Requests for comment/Activity levels of advanced administrative rights holders|global community consensus]] in 2013. According to this policy, the [[:m:stewards|stewards]] are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the [[:m:Admin activity review|admin activity review]].
 
We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):
#Sadik Khalid (administrator)
 
These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.
 
However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the [[:m:Stewards' noticeboard|stewards on Meta-Wiki]] so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki. Thanks, '''[[User:Rschen7754|Rs]][[User talk:Rschen7754|chen]][[Special:Contributions/Rschen7754|7754]]''' 06:14, 15 ജനുവരി 2015 (UTC)

'''Recent changes'''
* The [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Skin:MonoBook|MonoBook skin]] has been optimised for mobile devices. It now looks different. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195625]
* [[m:Planet Wikimedia|Planet Wikimedia]] collects blogs about Wikimedia. It will now use the [https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Rawdog Rawdog] [[w:en:News aggregator|feed aggregator]] to do this instead of [[w:en:Planet (software)|Planet]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T180498][https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2018-May/090036.html]
* Redirect links in [[Special:WhatLinksHere|Special:WhatLinksHere]] now link to the original page and not the target page. This was done earlier and changed the used messages on some pages. This was a problem for wikis that customized the message. A new change fixed this by using the old messages with one more parameter for customization. Wikis that already changed their customized messages will have to move the customization back again. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T189860]
 
'''Problems'''
* You will not be able to edit some wikis between 06:00 and 06:30 UTC on 13 June. You can see if [[phab:T195487|your wiki is one of them]].
* [[m:Special:MyLanguage/MassMessage|MassMessage]] did not work 24–28 May. This is also why last week's Tech News was late. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195500]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.32/wmf.7|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 5 June.

The meeting will be on [https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20180605T1830 5 June at 18:30 (UTC)]. See [[mw:Editing team/Weekly triage meetings|how to join]].
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] You can join the technical advice meeting on IRC.

'''Future changes'''
* Some old web browsers will not be able to read the Wikimedia wikis. This is because they use an insecure way to connect to them. This means that we get less security for everyone else too. This affects about 0.08% of all traffic to the Wikimedia wikis. This affects for example those who read Wikipedia on a [[w:en:PlayStation 3|PlayStation 3]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T147202][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T196371]
* The [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Edit Review Improvements/New filters for edit review|new filters for edit review]] tools and interface for watchlists will leave [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Beta|beta]]. Because there is no new MediaWiki version this week it will happen on 25 June for most wikis. For the rest it will happen in early July. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T181193][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T195993]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] All wikis that have not already done so will switch to use the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/RemexHtml|Remex parsing library]] on 5 July.

* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] All wikis now use the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/RemexHtml|Remex parsing library]] instead of [[mw:Parsing/Replacing Tidy|Tidy]].

* Rollbacks from autopatrolled users were not marked as patrolled. This has been fixed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T198449]

* When you edit a discussion on the mobile version you sometimes get your signature automatically added. This will now not happen if you have already added a signature manually. This is to avoid double signatures. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T192725]

This is also true for developers. This is to make it easier to understand what is happening. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T196812]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.32/wmf.12|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 10 July.

'''Future changes'''
* Today all administrators can edit [[w:en:CSS|CSS]] and [[w:en:JavaScript|JavaScript]] for the entire wiki. There will be a new user group for editing CSS and JavaScript. Administrators will no longer automatically be able to do this. This is because it is a security risk when all administrator accounts can edit JavaScript even if they never plan to or do not know how it works.

== IMPORTANT: Admin activity review ==
Hello. A new policy regarding the removal of "advanced rights" (administrator, bureaucrat, etc) was adopted by [[:m:Requests for comment/Activity levels of advanced administrative rights holders|global community consensus]] in 2013. According to this policy, the [[:m:stewards|stewards]] are reviewing administrators' activity on smaller wikis. To the best of our knowledge, your wiki does not have a formal process for removing "advanced rights" from inactive accounts. This means that the stewards will take care of this according to the [[:m:Admin activity review|admin activity review]].
 
We have determined that the following users meet the inactivity criteria (no edits and no log actions for more than 2 years):
#Thachan.makan (administrator)
 
These users will receive a notification soon, asking them to start a community discussion if they want to retain some or all of their rights. If the users do not respond, then their advanced rights will be removed by the stewards.
 
However, if you as a community would like to create your own activity review process superseding the global one, want to make another decision about these inactive rights holders, or already have a policy that we missed, then please notify the [[:m:Stewards' noticeboard|stewards on Meta-Wiki]] so that we know not to proceed with the rights review on your wiki. Thanks, '''[[User:Rschen7754|Rs]][[User talk:Rschen7754|chen]][[Special:Contributions/Rschen7754|7754]]''' 05:15, 10 ഓഗസ്റ്റ് 2018 (UTC)

'''Problems'''
* Some diffs showed lines in the wrong order. This was fixed last week. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T197157]

* <code><nowiki>{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}</nowiki></code> is used by some templates. For a period edits saved with <code><nowiki>{{subst:REVISIONUSER}}</nowiki></code> would save the previous user's name and not your username. This is now fixed. Edits made before the bug was fixed will still be wrong and need to be corrected. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T203583]

'''Changes later this week'''

* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.33/wmf.8|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 11 December. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 12 December. It will be on all wikis from 13 December ([[mw:MediaWiki 1.33/Roadmap|calendar]]).
 
'''Meetings'''
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] You can join the technical advice meeting on IRC. During the meeting, volunteer developers can ask for advice. The meeting will be on [https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?iso=20181212T16 12 December at 16:00 (UTC)]. See [[mw:Technical Advice IRC Meeting|how to join]].
 
'''Future changes'''
* New accounts will need passwords that are at least 8 characters long. Admins, interface admins, bureaucrats, oversighters, CentralNotice admins, global renamers, check users, stewards and some other user groups will need passwords that are at least 10 characters long. This is because an attacker could cause damage to the wikis if they took over these accounts. [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Security_Team/Password_strengthening_2019][https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Password_policy]
* When you hover over a footnote it will show you the reference as a pop-up. This is so you don't have to jump down to the bottom of the page to see a reference. This will happen in 2019. Some wikis already have gadgets that do this. You will be able to turn it off. [https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/WMDE_Technical_Wishes/ReferencePreviews]

'''Tech News'''
* Because of the [[w:en:Christmas and holiday season|holidays]] the next issue of Tech News will be sent out on 7 January 2019.
 
'''Recent changes'''
* Some templates that show notices about the content of the page will now be shown on the mobile website. In many cases they were hidden before. [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Reading/Web/Projects/Mobile_Page_Issues][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T210553]
* Admins can no longer unblock themselves, except for self-blocks. A blocked admin can block the user who blocked them but no one else. This is so no one can block all admins on a wiki without being stopped. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T150826]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] The [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Extension:ParserMigration|ParserMigration extension]] has been removed. It compared the result of two versions of the MediaWiki wikitext parsing pipeline. It was used when we moved to the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/RemexHtml|Remex parsing library]] instead of [[mw:Parsing/Replacing Tidy|Tidy]].
 
'''Problems'''
* <code><nowiki><ref></nowiki></code> tags can use parameters such as "name" or "group". For example <code><nowiki><ref name="adams" group="books"></nowiki></code>. If a <code><nowiki><ref></nowiki></code> tag has more than two parameters all parameters are ignored. You don't get a warning that they don't work. This will soon be fixed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T211576]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.33/wmf.9|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 18 December. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 19 December. It will be on all wikis from 20 December ([[mw:MediaWiki 1.33/Roadmap|calendar]]).

'''Future changes'''
* The Wikimedia Foundation [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Wikimedia Apps|Android app team]] are working on making it easier to edit on mobile phones. You can [[mw:Android editing features|read more]] about these plans. If you have an Android phone and speak at least two languages you can help testing in English. Tell [[:m:User:Dchen (WMF)|Dchen (WMF)]] you want to be part of the testing by writing on her talk page or email her.
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] <code>tiles.wmflabs.org</code> and <code>wma.wmflabs.org</code> will stop working. They have no maintainers and run an old operating system. Tools which use it could stop working. This includes [[:w:en:Mapnik|the mapnik gadget]], hill shading, and hike and bike layers. New maintainers could help out and keep it going.

'''Recent changes'''
* RelatedSites extension has been undeployed. It was used to create interwiki links on Wikivoyage, now handled by Wikidata. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T128326]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] MediaWiki logstash logging is moving to a new infrastructure. This is an ongoing deployment. [https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Logging_infrastructure_design_document.pdf]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] [https://codesearch.wmflabs.org codesearch.wmflabs.org] has been updated, with new and updated repositories and a new search options for code. [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-ambassadors/2019-January/002045.html]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] On several wikis, an account named "{{int:abusefilter-blocker}}" has been created on December 17 to perform some technical maintenance on AbuseFilter. This account has sysop rights but it's a system user and no human can use it. The account already existed on wikis where AbuseFilter can perform blocks, which are issued using this account. See [[:phabricator:T212268|T212268]] for more information and future plans.
 
'''Problems'''
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] In [[:mw:Special:MyLanguage/Extension:AbuseFilter|AbuseFilter]], the "{{int:abusefilter-action-throttle}}" action takes three parameters: count, period and groups. They must now strictly respect the requirements listed [[:mw:Extension:AbuseFilter/Actions#Throttling|on mediawiki.org]]. A list of broken filters is [[:phabricator:P7956|on Phabricator]]. If you're familiar with AbuseFilter, please take a look and fix them. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T209565]

'''Recent changes'''
* You can now use [[:w:en:Google Translate|Google Translate]] in the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Content translation|content translation tool]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T90208][https://wikimediafoundation.org/2019/01/09/you-can-now-use-google-translate-to-translate-articles-on-wikipedia/]
* You can now add [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:File captions|captions]] to files on Commons. Captions are short descriptions of the file. They can be translated to all languages we use. They can't use wikitext markup.
* Earlier a [[:w:en:Attribute (computing)|quoted HTML attribute]] had to be followed by a space. Now it doesn't. This means that some pages could look different when you save them even if you didn't edit that part of the text. [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Uqhg1it7nojfnjfg][https://github.com/wikimedia/mediawiki/commit/59bb8864a23f3df120789c7619ef07acefa27b9c]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] Templates with [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:TemplateStyles|<nowiki><templatestyles></nowiki>]] could not show the difference between the live template and the [[w:en:Sandbox (software development)|sandbox]] version when they were tested. This has now been fixed. <nowiki><templatestyles></nowiki> has a new <code>wrapper</code> parameter now. You can use it for selectors like <code dir="ltr">.mw-parser-output <nowiki><wrapper parameter value> <selector from CSS page></nowiki></code>. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T200441]
 
'''Problems'''
* When you see an edit in the recent changes feed or in the history of a page some of them have [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:Tags|tags]]. Some tags are added automatically. You can also add tags manually. Tags for edits that have been added manually can be edited. This didn't work for a little while. This has now been fixed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T212703]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
*You can move files from your wiki to Wikimedia Commons and keep the file history with the new [[m:WMDE Technical Wishes/Move files to Commons|FileExporter]]. It will be a [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Beta Features|beta feature]] on all wikis from 16 January. If you want to test it you [[Special:Preferences#mw-prefsection-betafeatures|activate it]] and check [[m:WMDE Technical Wishes/Move files to Commons/Configuration file documentation|your wiki's configuration file]].
* Users who could cause more damage to the wikis if someone took over their account have to have more secure passwords. This includes administrators and other user groups. They can't use passwords that are in a list of common passwords. Accounts with common passwords are easy to take over. The list of common passwords was made longer a few weeks ago and has a different error message. Some user groups have been added to those who can't use common passwords. This is to protect all accounts with user rights that could cause damage. [https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/operations/mediawiki-config/+/481115/]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] The [[:mw:Special:MyLanguage/Extension:AbuseFilter|AbuseFilter]] variable <code>minor_edit</code> has been removed. It was deprecated in 2016. Now you can't use it. You can fix the filters using it. You can find them if you use the search bar on [[Special:AbuseFilter|Special:AbuseFilter]].
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.33/wmf.13|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from January 15 <section end="technews-2019-W03"/> 17:54, 14 ജനുവരി 2019 (UTC)

'''Tech News'''
* Some people did not get last week's issue of Tech News. This was because of a problem with [[m:Special:MyLanguage/MassMessage|MassMessage]]. If you did not get last week's issue, you can [[m:Special:MyLanguage/Tech/News/2019/03|read it on Meta]]. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T213942]
 
'''Recent changes'''
* The [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Content translation|content translation tool]] can now use [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Content translation/V2|version 2]] as the default version for users who turned on the [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Beta Features|beta feature]]. For example it adds the tracking category <code>{{int:cx-unreviewed-translation-category}}</code> to translations that might have used machine translations without fixing the problems. This is so others can find them. You can find this category in <code>Special:TrackingCategories</code> on Wikipedias.
* [https://mediawiki2latex-large.wmflabs.org https://mediawiki2latex-large.wmflabs.org] can now convert collects of up to 800 pages to [[:w:en:PDF|PDF]], [[:w:en:EPUB|EPUB]] or [[:w:en:OpenDocument|ODT]]. Previously this was 200 pages.
 
'''Problems'''
* When a template was edited with the visual editor, it would sometimes put all information on one line. This makes it difficult to read for editors who use the wikitext editor. It also makes it more difficult to see what happened in a diff. This problem affected edits made between 8 and 17 January and is now fixed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T213922]
* [[m:Special:MyLanguage/MassMessage|MassMessage]] is used to post a message to many pages. It has not been working reliably. Some messages have not been posted to everyone. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T213942][https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T139380]
* Because of a database problem that had to be fixed immediately you could not edit most wikis for a couple of minutes on 17 January (UTC). This has now been fixed. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T213858]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* You will be able to use [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Help:TemplateStyles|template styles]] in the <code>Module</code> namespace. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T200914]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.33/wmf.14|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 22 January.

* You will be able to preview references. This means that when you hover over the link you will get a popup that shows you a preview of the reference.

* When you create a PDF from a page on the wiki this is now done by [[mw:Proton|Proton]]. Before this we used [[mw:Electron|Electron]]. It should look the same but work better. Both use Chromium.

== Indic Wikimedia Campaigns/Contests Survey ==
 
Hello fellow Wikimedians,
 
Apologies for writing in English. Please help me in translating this message to your language.
 
I am delighted to share a survey that will help us in the building a comprehensive list of campaigns and contests organized by the Indic communities on various Wikimedia projects like Wikimedia Commons, Wikisource, Wikipedia, Wikidata etc. We also want to learn what's working in them and what are the areas that needs more support.
 
If you have organized or participated in any campaign or contest (such as Wiki Loves Monuments type Commons contest, Wikisource Proofreading Contest, Wikidata labelathons, 1lib1ref campaigns etc.), we would like to hear from you.
 
You can read the Privacy Policy for the Survey [https://foundation.wikimedia.org/wiki/Indic_Wikimedia_Campaigns_and_Contests_Survey_Privacy_Statement here]
 
Please find the link to the Survey at:
'''https://forms.gle/eDWQN5UxTBC9TYB1A'''
 
P.S. If you have been involved in multiple campaigns/contests, feel free to submit the form multiple times.
 
Looking forward to hearing and learning from you.

'''Tech News'''
* There will be no Tech News issue next week. The next issue of Tech News will be sent out on 2 September 2019.
 
'''Problems'''
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] Some abuse filters stopped working because of a code change. Only variables for the current action will work. Variables defined inside a branch may not work outside of that branch. You can [[phab:T230256|read more]] to see how to fix the filters.
* Only six accounts can be created from one [[:w:en:IP address|IP address]] per day. Between 12 August and August 15 this was two accounts per day. This was because of a security issue. It is now six accounts per day again. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T230521]
 
'''Changes later this week'''
* Only a limited number of accounts can be created from one [[:w:en:IP address|IP address]]. An IP address can be [[:w:en:Whitelisting |whitelisted]] so that it can create as many accounts as needed. This is useful at events where many new persons learn to edit. IP addresses that are whitelisted for this reason will also not show [[w:en:CAPTCHA|CAPTCHAs]] when you create accounts. This will happen on Wednesday. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T227487]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.34/wmf.19|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 20 August. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 21 August. It will be on all wikis from 22 August ([[mw:MediaWiki 1.34/Roadmap|calendar]]).

'''Future changes'''
* There is an [[:w:en: Request for Comments|RFC]] about creating a new global user group with the right to edit [[:mw:Extension:AbuseFilter|abuse filters]]. This will be used to fix broken filters and make sure all filters will still work when software changes happen. You can [[:m:Requests for comment/Creating abusefilter-manager global group|read more and comment]].
* <code>Special:Contributions/newbies</code> will no longer be working. This is because of performance reasons. It showed edits by new accounts. You can see this in the recent changes feed instead. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T220447]

<div lang="en" dir="ltr" class="mw-content-ltr">
Hey everyone,
 
The Wikimedia Foundation wants to work on two things that affect how we patrol changes and handle vandalism and harassment. We want to make the tools that are used to handle bad edits better. We also want to get better privacy for unregistered users so their IP addresses are no longer shown to everyone in the world. We would not hide IP addresses until we have better tools for patrolling.
 
We have an idea of what tools ''could'' be working better and how a more limited access to IP addresses would change things, but we need to hear from more wikis. You can read more about the project [[m:IP Editing: Privacy Enhancement and Abuse Mitigation|on Meta]] and [[m:Talk:IP Editing: Privacy Enhancement and Abuse Mitigation|post comments and feedback]]. Now is when we need to hear from you to be able to give you better tools to handle vandalism, spam and harassment.
 
You can post in your language if you can't write in English.

* You can use the new [[wikidata:Wikidata:Development/Termbox|termbox]] interface if you edit Wikidata on a mobile device. This is to edit labels, descriptions and aliases easier on the mobile pages. [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikidata/2019-August/013355.html]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.34/wmf.20|new version]] of MediaWiki has been deployed during the last week.
* The previously announced change of positions of the "Wikidata item" link on all wikis has been rollbacked due to unexpected cache issues. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T66315#5431632]
* The limit for rollbacks has been increased from 10 to 100 rollbacks per minute. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T228708]
* The advanced version of the edit review pages (Recent Changes, Watchlist, and Related Changes) now include two new filters. These filters are for "All contents" and "All discussions". They will filter the view to just those namespaces. However the "All discussions" filter does not include pseudo talk pages, like discussions that are in the ''Project:'' or ''Wikipedia:'' namespaces. But it will include changes happening on ''Project talk:'' or the ''Wikipedia talk:''. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T201520]

* When you log in, the software checks your password to see if it follows the [[Special:MyLanguage/Password policy|Password policy]]. From this week, it will also complain if your password is one of the most common passwords in the world.

<div class="plainlinks">
Hello,
 
In a [[:en:Wikipedia:Community_response_to_the_Wikimedia_Foundation%27s_ban_of_Fram/Official_statements#Board_statement|recent statement]], the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees [[:en:Wikipedia:Community_response_to_the_Wikimedia_Foundation%27s_ban_of_Fram/Official_statements#Board_statement|requested that staff hold a consultation]] to "re-evaluat[e] or add community input to the two new office action policy tools (temporary and partial Foundation bans)".
 
Accordingly, the Foundation's Trust & Safety team invites all Wikimedians [[:m:Office actions/Community consultation on partial and temporary office actions/09 2019|to join this consultation and give their feedback]] from 30 September to 30 October.
 
How can you help?
 
* Suggest how partial and temporary Foundation bans should be used, if they should (eg: On all projects, or only on a subset);
 
* Give ideas about how partial and temporary Foundation bans should ideally implemented, if they should be; and/or
 
* Propose changes to the existing Office Actions policy on partial and temporary bans.
 
We offer our thanks in advance for your contributions, and we hope to get as much input as possible from community members during this consultation!

== Feedback wanted on Desktop Improvements project ==
 
<div class="plainlinks mw-content-ltr" lang="en" dir="ltr">
{{Int:Please-translate}}
 
{{int:Hello}}. The Readers Web team at the WMF will work on some [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements|improvements to the desktop interface]] over the next couple of years. The goal is to increase usability without removing any functionality. We have been inspired by changes made by volunteers, but that currently only exist as local gadgets and user scripts, prototypes, and volunteer-led skins. We would like to begin the process of bringing some of these changes into the default experience on all Wikimedia projects.
 
We are currently in the research stage of this project and are looking for ideas for improvements, as well as feedback on our current ideas and mockups. So far, we have performed interviews with community members at Wikimania. We have gathered lists of previous volunteer and WMF work in this area. We are examining possible technical approaches for such changes.
 
We would like individual feedback on the following:
 
* Identifying focus areas for the project we have not yet discovered
* Expanding the list of existing gadgets and user scripts that are related to providing a better desktop experience. If you can think of some of these from your wiki, please let us know
* Feedback on the ideas and mockups we have collected so far
 
We would also like to gather a list of wikis that would be interested in being test wikis for this project - these wikis would be the first to receive the updates once we’re ready to start building.
 
When giving feedback, please consider the following goals of the project:
 
* Make it easier for readers to focus on the content
* Provide easier access to everyday actions (e.g. search, language switching, editing)
* Put things in logical and useful places
* Increase consistency in the interface with other platforms - mobile web and the apps
* Eliminate clutter
* Plan for future growth
 
As well as the following constraints:
 
* Not touching the content - no work will be done in terms of styling templates or to the structure of page contents themselves
* Not removing any functionality - things might move around, but all navigational items and other functionality currently available by default will remain
* No drastic changes to the layout - we're taking an evolutionary approach to the changes and want the site to continue feeling familiar to readers and editors
 
Please give all feedback (in any language) at [[mw:Talk:Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements|mw:Talk:Reading/Web/Desktop Improvements]]
 
After this round of feedback, we plan on building a prototype of suggested changes based on the feedback we receive. You’ll hear from us again asking for feedback on this prototype.

'''Problems'''
* There is a [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Extension:Translate|translation tool]] we use on wikis with more than one language.

== Wikimedia Movement Strategy: 2020 Community Conversations ==
 
Dear Wikimedians, <br>
 
Greetings! Wishing you a very happy new year! <br>
 
We have an update for the next steps of the [[:m:Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2018-20| Movement Strategy]]! We're preparing for a final round of community conversations with Wikimedia affiliates and online communities around a synthesized set of draft recommendations to start around late/mid January. In the meantime, recommendations’ writers and strategy team has been working on integrating community ideas and feedback into these recommendations. Thank you, for all of your contributions!<br>
 
===What's New?===
The recommendations writers have been working to consolidate the 89 recommendations produced by the working groups. They met in Berlin a few weeks back for an in-person session to produce a synthesized recommendations document which will be shared for public comment around late/mid January. A number of common areas for change were reflected in the recommendations, and the writers assessed and clustered them around these areas. The goal was to outline the overall direction of the change and present one set that is clearly understood, implementable and demonstrates the reasoning behind each.<br>
 
===What's Next?===
We will be reaching out to you to help engage your affiliate in discussing this new synthesized version. Your input in helping us refine and advance key ideas will be invaluable, and we are looking forward to engaging with you for a period of thirty days from late/mid January. Our final consultation round is to give communities a chance to "review and discuss" the draft recommendations, highlighting areas of support and concern as well as indicating how your community would be affected. <br>
 
Please share ideas on how you would like to meet and discuss the final draft recommendations when they are released near Mid January whether through your strategy salons, joining us at global and regional events, joining online conversations, or sending in notes from affiliate discussions. We couldn't do this without you, and hope that you will enjoy seeing your input reflected in the next draft and final recommendations. This will be an opportunity for the movement to review and respond to the recommendations before they are finalized. <br>
 
If possible, we'd love if you could feature a discussion of the draft recommendations at the next in-person meeting of your affiliate, ideally between the last week of January and the first week of February. If not, please let us know how we can help support you with online conversations and discussing how the draft recommendations fit with the ideas shared at your strategy salon (when applicable).<br>
 
The input communities have shared so far has been carefully documented, analyzed, and folded into the synthesized draft recommendations. Communities will be able to see footnotes referencing community ideas. What they share again in January/February will be given the same care, seriousness, and transparency. <br>
 
This final round of community feedback will be presented to the Board of Trustees alongside the final recommendations that will be shared at the Wikimedia Summit.<br>

*[[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] Wikis can protect pages so that only some users can edit them. The standard protection levels are {{int:protect-level-autoconfirmed}} and {{int:Protect-level-sysop}}. If your wiki use more protection levels the technical name might be renamed for standardisation. This doesn't affect what users see. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T230103]
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.35/wmf.15|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 14 January. It will be on non-Wikipedia wikis and some Wikipedias from 15 January. It will be on all wikis from 16 January ([[mw:MediaWiki 1.35/Roadmap|calendar]]).
 
'''Future changes'''
* [[:wikitech:Nova Resource:Catgraph/Deepcat|Deepcat]] and [[:wikitech:Nova Resource:Catgraph|Catgraph]] will stop working. This will happen at the end of January. This is because you can now use the normal search function instead. [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2020-January/092936.html]
* You can use <code><nowiki><ref follow="…"></nowiki></code> to merge footnotes that follow each other. It is meant to be used for digitised books on Wikisource. If the order of the footnotes is wrong no error was shown but the bad <nowiki><ref></nowiki> was shown outside the <nowiki><references /></nowiki> list. This will change and you will see an error message instead. [https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T240858]

'''Changes later this week'''
* [[File:Octicons-sync.svg|12px|link=|Recurrent item]] The [[mw:MediaWiki 1.35/wmf.16|new version]] of MediaWiki will be on test wikis and MediaWiki.org from 21 January.

'''Future changes'''
* There is a [[:m:Special:MyLanguage/IP Editing: Privacy Enhancement and Abuse Mitigation/Improving tools|new suggestion]] for what to show when someone edits without registering an account. This is to give unregistered editors better privacy and make some anti-vandalism work go faster. You can [[:m:Talk:IP Editing: Privacy Enhancement and Abuse Mitigation/Improving tools|give feedback]].
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] [[:mw:Special:MyLanguage/Manual:Pywikibot|Pywikibot]] is a Python [[:w:en:Library (computing)|library]] to automate work on wikis. It will no longer support [[:w:en:Python (programming language)|Python 2]]. Use the <code>python2</code> tag if you need to continue running Python 2 scripts. The Pywikibot team strongly recommends to migrate to Python 3. You can [[:phab:T242120|get help]] to do so. [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/pywikibot/2020-January/009976.html]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] The weekly MediaWiki branch cut will soon become automated. The timing for this cut may change. You can discuss [[phab:T242446|in Phabricator]] if this affects you. [https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2020-January/092939.html]
* [[File:Octicons-tools.svg|15px|link=|Advanced item]] You can [[mw:Special:MyLanguage/Technical Community Newsletter/2020/January|read about]] coming technical events and mentoring interns.
