I'm not familiar with bluejeans and maybe have missed a transition
because I wasn't paying enough attention. is this some kind of
experiment? have all meetings transitioned to this service?
anyway, my immediate question at the moment is how do you join without
sharing your microphone and camera?
am I correct thinking that this is an entirely proprietary stack
that's neither gratis nor libre and has no on-premise (not cloud)
hosting option? are we paying for this?
In order to improve browser testing tools, release engineering team has
created browser testing user satisfaction survey:
It should take you up to 5 minutes. Most of the questions have simple 5
level linear scale. There are 5 sections, and the last question in each
section will be free form text field, so you can leave comments on anything
we forgot to ask.
For details about the survey, feel free to take a look at phabricator task:
I would like to draw your attention to ticket
This ticket highlights some issues with the way sections, headers and the
TOC are handled in the parser in combination with tag extensions and parser
Basically the problem is that the TOC is created before strip markers are
substituted, which prevents some sections from showing up in the TOC.
This issue is limiting the usefulness of such constructs, so I am very
interested to spend some time on it with people well-versed in the parser
code and in particular the formatHeadings function.
Of course, there are plenty more details I could give but before flooding
wikitech-l with those I thought I'd poll for the interest in addressing
this. Maybe the next step could be some chat over IRC or another medium?
Thanks in advance,
This is an inquiry from my friend in academia, researching about Wikipedia.
He would like to know whether there's a way to acquire a list of templates
including external links. Here are some examples including external links.
Such links are stored in externallinks.sql.gz, in an expanded form.
When you want to check increase/decrease of linked domains in chronological
order through edit history, you have to check pages-meta-history1.xml etc.
In a such case, traditional links and links by templates are mixed,
Therefore, the latter ones (links by templates) should be expanded to
traditional link forms.
Sorry if what I am saying does not make sense.
Thanks in advance,
