Description

Project for the Wikimedia Commons community.

The intention behind this project is:

  • Better organization for specific communities. Commons has specific needs and a well-organized community which is expected to be actively involved in this Phabricator project and this project's tasks.
  • A potential bridge between non-technical users and developers: Not many users will know that a problem is related to some specific MediaWiki extension, but most users will be able to tell that their problem is happening in Commons. The Commons Phabricator project can be watched by tech ambassadors and other users who know the community and its technical links well and can help those users and triage those tasks.

See also Commons:Bugs
IRC: #wikimedia-commons-tech

Please do not report tasks under this project if the task is not actually specific to Commons but only because you found this problem on Commons. Also see How to report a bug.

(For the records: The creation of this project was discussed in T39883 and T802.)

Lwangaman added a comment to T291131: InstantCommons doesn't work for all-caps file extensions by default.

I think it's more of an issue on the server side setup, not so much with InstantCommons itself. I fixed the issue in my nginx setup. But it would probably be better for all image files to have lower case extensions, for greater compatibility.

akosiaris added a comment to T40010: RFC: Re-evaluate librsvg as SVG renderer on Wikimedia wikis.

Mathoid uses it though. I presumed that's what this task was about.

Indeed. Please file a different task though tagged Mathoid and Platform Engineering and subscribe @Physikerwelt as well. If a dependency is abandoned, a replacement needs to be found/written. Otherwise we 'll eventually need to disable that functionality

T247697: Rethink mathoids SVG to PNG conversion already exists as a subtask of this one, which may have been the cause of the confusion.

Urbanecm added a comment to T290292: Add *.staticflickr.com to the wgCopyUploadsDomains allowlist of Wikimedia Commons.

This looks to be a timeout error. It's not related to allowlisting the domain. It might be worth a bug report though -- not sure.

AntiCompositeNumber added a comment to T290462: Certain TIFF files get no thumbnail and misidentified dimensions ("0 × 0 pixels") and number of pages (0 pages).

I tested by doing the following:
My test setup is mediawiki-docker, with a mariadb database. PagedTiffHandler is installed, with the following configuration:

$wgDBprefix = "mw_";
wfLoadExtension( 'PagedTiffHandler' );
$wgTiffUseTiffinfo = true;
$wgTiffMaxMetaSize = 1048576;

I uploaded https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Hacienda_Azucarera_La_Concepcion,_Sugar_Mill_Ruins,_.3_Mi._W._of_Junction_of_Rts._418_and_111,_Victoria,_Aguadilla_Municipio,_PR_HAER_PR,11-VICT,1A-_(sheet_4_of_5).tiff and, as expected, the metadata was read fine by tiffinfo. I also uploaded another non-broken TIFF and a PNG.
