An analysis of what happened was circulated a few days
ago and now
It's fairly technical but it's supposed to help improve for the future,
although so far it wasn't acted upon: «TL;DR: Changes in MW core exposed a
bug in TranslationNotifications. The same bug is also present in other
extensions. Many people participated in preventing further damage and fixing
the issue. More work remains to be done.»
Since that report is not on a generally
editable wiki, let me note
here instead that while it gives the impression that the first
duplicate notifications were observed at the end of November, this has
in fact happened at least twice before, in July and August:
Back then, the time between the redundant notifications was much
shorter, so the reason may have been a different one.
We still don't know if the translation notifications should now work or
what's going to happen to the job queue, nor how/if todays' jobqueue
) may impact it.
Thanks to everyone who worked to resolve the present bug! I have
small notification (Portuguese only) to send out soon, which should
make a good test case.
