Did you know?[edit]


  • Wrote performance tests so we can track performance improvements better
  • Did a code review of all gadgets that are enabled by default in Wikidata. Found and fixed a performance bottleneck.
  • Work on making the interface more responsive, e. g. live preview when editing labels and updating the watchlist star when saving.
  • Started refactoring and fixing issues with automatically created summaries that are, for example, created by bots via API calls.
  • Fixed an issue with OAuth on Wikidata because of permissions
  • Started code review of the code the student team is working on for suggestions
  • Discussed updates to the data model document to be able to update it to the actual implementation
  • Did a technical debt analysis and design review of Wikibase.git, with initial focus on WikibaseLib
  • Got (backend) EntityStore on the way, so we can test API modules without touching the database
  • Further work on TimeParsers move to the backend

See current sprint items for what we’re working on next.
