  1. Help Desk
    • (Mark) Thanked Brian Wolff for his support desk help
  2. This month in MediaWiki (Mark) - Based off Etherpad notes
    • MW Logo Change
      • One week left to comment on the MW Logo change
      • This is just a proposal at this point
    • Deprecation policy discussion
      • Robert Vogel commented on it via email representing Hallo Welt, it's OK with them
    • MW 1.35 release candidate. (VE in core!)
    • Updated pingback statistics visualization using the heartbeat ping
      • A chart is shown
      • The data show how relatively common MediaWiki 1.30 to 1.35 are, and new installations of each
      • Heartbeat/Pingback was updated to fix a bug that showed each implementation continuously adding it's status to the total count
    • Developer Advocacy/Developer Portal
    • PHP 7.2 support is dropped for MW 1.35
    • Discussion about unsupporting single-step upgrades over lots of versions is still ongoing
    • Consultation about switching from Gerrit to Gitlab
    • MediaWiki user survey
    • Discussion for the Wikimedia Universal Code of Conduct is coming up. I imagine it will replace the CoC for technical spaces (although no one explicitly stated that) so somewhat relevant for non-#* Wikimedians as well.
    • (Mark) What happened with MagicNumberedHeadings (MNH) and why you should keep mw.org up-to-date
      • MNH initially stored code in the page on mw.org
      • When I went to update it, I learned Umherirrender had imported MagicNumberedHeadings from my github repo into gerrit but neither he nor I updated MW.org to point to the repo(s) instead of having code on the page, so @kghbln looked at the page and said, hmm, not updated for MagicWords and MWServices (but I did this on my github repo and @legoktm did it on gerrit)
      • So, @kghbln marked the extension archived and, as a result, Archive the MagicNumberedHeadings extension archived the gerrit repo.
      • I was upgrading and noticed all this. Asked for a gerrit repo re-creation.
  3. New Flex Diagrams extension
