Analytics needs to know which reports at stats.wikimedia.org people are
using. They will be decommissioning it around the end of the year, but
plan to re-implement/port the most important reports. Please comment at
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T107175 if you use any in particular.
Aggregate User Agent information (which I think is the one I've used the
most) is already listed.
Starting Monday August 3rd, 2015 (a little over a week from now), we will
start publicly logging the #wikimedia-collaboration IRC channel. Anything
that anyone says in this channel will be visible publicly and forever(*) at
A number of people have requested this, but because IRC logging is a
controversial subject for some people, Matt and I decided to announce it
well in advance. We will also announce this in the channel topic, and once
logging is live a link to the log will appear in the channel topic as well.
As your inbox might have noticed, I spent some time triaging the Echo
board <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/echo/>. I didn't really
change priorities, mainly focused on the columns.
The board now has 5 columns:
* Backlog - default, untriaged. Should be empty most of the time, it
isn't right now because I didn't finish.
* Needs plan - still under discussion, doesn't have a clear direction or
obvious reproduction steps.
* Needs code - Ready for someone to pick up and write code! May not
always be code related though (ex: "some images need to be reversed for
* In progress - in progress, should always have an assignee.
* External - Things related to Echo we should be aware of, but not
necessarily something we need to work on.
This is based off of the board we've been using for the MediaWiki-API
project, which I've found generally works well. If I mis-triaged stuff,
please re-triage as necessary :)
