Thank you Thomas,†
I will copy and paste this message on the Italian Scriptorium.

I perfectly know that the maintenance work of the (beloved) Proofreadpage extension falls almost on you and other brave heroes,†
and I would like to thank you for that.

My question in fact is:
how could we help you? I'm not very skilled with bugzilla and I do not code,†
but I am an admin on it.source and I can put a big red message on the sitenotice everytime there is a deployment.

I suggest that, one two days in advance, you developers use this list to announce a deployment,†
so the community is ready to tackle problems and issues.†
It is frustrating for everyone if we have issues and we do not know why,†
and it is frustrating for you as well to run and fix the issues and also try to explain why and how.†

This mailing list is here for these kind of things:
please use it, and let us help you when we can.†

Hi everyone!

Iím really sorry for all the issues affecting Wikisources. A fix for most of them have just been deployed (it have been an hard work) and Iíll try to fix all the remaining ones for the next Tuesday deployment.

Here is a list of the fixed issues:
* The image didnít appear for Page: pages that are member of a multipage file but that havenít as Index: page a page called Index:NAME_OF_THE_DJVU (it have affected mostly pl.wikisource)
* A part of some Page: pages body content appeared as part of their footer in edit mode when those pages contains a <noinclude> tag
* The color of the link to a Page: page was red in the Index: page when its level category name contained a whitespace (to fix this issue a purge of each Page: page affected is required)
* The creation of a Page: page using the API caused a fatal error
* An indentation was displayed on the first paragraph of a Page: page

Here is the remaining known issues (thanks to report ones that havenít been listed here):
* The Page: pages edit summary contains twice the proofreading level change tag. A fix for it is on review that will let the software adds the tag on Page: page saving (the tag wonít be visible during the editing process.
* The addition of default header and footer content adds a strange string instead of tags like <references />. A fix for it is on review
* The body textarea on Page: pages editing is too big. Iím working on a fix that would use the size defined in User preferences instead.
* Fatal error on submit for a very few pages (a fix is on review)
* It isnít possible anymore to zoom in with a mouse. Iím working on a fix
* the issue with gadget that Aubrey have reported here (I think that the solution is more on the gadget side that on the extension one)
* Itís not possible to edit only the body of a page throw the API

Iím going to work on automatized tests in the next weeks in order to avoid a so major number of bugs the next times.

Sorry again,


PS: For people that ignore it, the maintenance work of the ProofreadPage extension is mostly done by volunteers like you. So, please be kind
