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?
can someone to update list https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/P10500 which
contains repositories which haven't mediawiki/mediawiki-codesniffer.
I found in list that much repositories are empty, and repositories which
aren't available on Gerrit.
So, can someone please update this list of repositories (in
mediawiki/extensions) which haven't mediawiki/mediawiki-codesniffer, but at
least, contains one PHP file. or to provide me command with which I can
update list when I want, so I don't need to request it every time.
P. S.: Happy weekend! :)
I want to notify you that I have, on behalf of the WikiTeq company, made a
task https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T298277 for requesting repository
ownership for the Lingo extension.
In case that you have any kind of questions, please let me know. :)
This is a quick note to highlight that in six weeks' time, the REL1_39
branch will be created for MediaWiki core and each of the extensions and
skins in Wikimedia git, with some (the 'tarball') included as sub-modules
of MediaWiki itself. This is the first step in the release process for
MediaWiki 1.39, which should be out in November 2022, approximately
six months after MediaWiki 1.38.
The branches will reflect the code as of the last 'alpha' branch for the
release, 1.39.0-wmf.28, which will be deployed to Wikimedia wikis in the
week beginning 12 September 2022 for MediaWiki itself and those extensions
and skins available there.
After that point, patches that land in the main development branch of
MediaWiki and its bundled extensions and skins will be slated for the
MediaWiki 1.40 release unless specifically backported.
If you are working on a new feature that you wish to land for the release,
you now have a few days to finish your work and land it in the development
branch; feature changes should not be backported except in an urgent case.
If your work might not be complete in time, and yet should block release
for everyone else, please file a task against the `mw-1.39-release` project
If you have tickets that are already tagged for `mw-1.39-release`, please
finish them, untag them, or reach out to get them resolved in the next few
We hope to issue the first release candidate, 1.39.0-rc.0, two weeks after
the branch point, and if all goes well, to release MediaWiki 1.39.0 a few
weeks after that.

Tomorrow at the HOPE 2022 conference, I'm giving a talk titled, "How to
Run a Top-10 Website, Publicly and Transparently", discussing the impact
of transparency in Wikimedia's technical spaces. A number of people have
expressed interest in watching, including non-technical users, so I'm
advertising it a bit more broadly.
I apologize for the short notice, I didn't realize the stream would be
free to watch until yesterday (thanks Ori!).
Time: 2022-07-23 17:00 UTC (1pm ET) -
If you can't watch it live, a recording will be uploaded later on.
I've documented all of this on-wiki, including the full abstract:
I am of course happy to answer any questions people might have after the

The sixth workshop on the topic of "How to maintain bots" is coming up - it
will take place on Friday, July 29th at 16:00 UTC. You can find more
details on the workshop and a link to join here: <
This session will focus on best practices for maintaining bots and tools in
the Wikimedia ecosystem. It will cover a few practices that can help
developers run a bot or a tool with help from others, such as picking a
license, adding co-maintainers to the project, publishing source code,
writing docs, and much more.
To participate in this workshop, you would need basic familiarity with bots
or tools development. You can add your discussion ideas in the etherpad doc
linked from the workshops page.
We look forward to your participation!
