Hi there - speaking to one thing I'm familiar with, with respect to image
selection, we believe https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T124225 should

Hi there, just wanted to touch on the autoredirection stuff. The thing
mentioned on autoredirection is an enhancement for accesses to
m.wikipedia.org/ webroot (not articles) for Wikipedia Zero users. As

After examining this, it looks like EventLogging is more suited to the

Anyone on the list know if there's a way to make the debug log facilities
do the MMDD timestamp instead of the longer one?
If not, I suppose we could work to update the core MediaWiki code.

Thanks for starting this thread.
Sorry if I've overlooked this, but who/what will have access to this data?
