    • DONE
  • [MAX] Create sprint boards through end of quarter (86)
    • [DMITRY] Populate (roughly)
      • 85 is populated; 86 created but not yet populated

Significant EventsEdit

  • iOS srcset bug

LovedEdit

LackedEdit

  • Knowing what to do (if anything) about bugs created by templates. (see. e.g., https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T126331 )
    • Maybe go to the talk page for that template and explain the problem
    • 1/3 of main page articles image leads to file page
    • Maybe ask James F

LearnedEdit

  • Double-check your schema version before querying event logging!
  • Using queries to determine which pages to re-generate takes longer than doing all pages. -> Need for versioned content format
    • Regeneration has happened (at least on enwiki jellyfish); should check
  • Alcohol laws in Pennsylvania

Longed forEdit

  • Faster re-generation of MCS content
  • Design research availability

Action ItemsEdit

  • [DMITRY] Populate (roughly) sprint 86
  • [MICHAEL] Ask James F about misbehaving templates
