Other Noteworthy StuffEdit

Did you know?Edit


  • Significantly (on average to 1/4th) reduced the number of changes from Wikidata showing up on the watchlists and recent changes on Wikipedias and the other sister projects. This way changes that do not affect an article should no longer show up. We're still holding off roll-out to Commons, Cebuano, Waray-Waray and Armenian Wikipedia because of scalability concerns.
  • Working on optimizing one of the largest database tables (wb_terms) (phab:T188279)
  • Fixing a bug on how Wikidata changes are shown on Wikipedia (phab:T189320)
  • Continued addressing security review issues for Wikibase-Lexeme extension (phab:T186726)
