Seeking clarification re meta NPOVEdit

Can someone with a meta perspective and knowledge of the history of meta NPOV kindly respond to my q posted here? tia, Humanengr (talk) 04:32, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

At a meta level, all of the content on Wikimedia sites should be written from a neutral point of view. There's some debate whether that applies to the Foundation taking political action, with some arguing that it violates NPOV if we as an organization take a side, while others argue that we need to ensure our own survival. As to why only specific projects are listed on the page, it's only projects with a formal NPOV policy. Not all have/need one. (And the page is somewhat confusing in that it says Wikibooks etc as if all language versions have the same policy, and some don't). – Ajraddatz (talk) 05:14, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
Thx. What’s also confusing is that for those projects that “have a strict NPOV policy”, does that mean they essentially adhere to the ‘original formulation’? Any insight would help. Humanengr (talk) 05:58, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
Not sure, and it's not really important to break down the wording here. The NPOV page isn't a policy page. If it isn't clear, you can edit it to make it more clear. – Ajraddatz (talk) 00:27, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

RemexHTML replacing TidyEdit

RemexHTML will probably be enabled on Meta 2 May. mw:RemexHtml is a parsing library. It replaces Tidy. You can read more, but if this doesn't say you anything at all, you can probably ignore this. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 12:26, 18 April 2018 (UTC)

Hello Johan (WMF). According to Special:LintErrors we have ~500,000 high priority errors. While it is certainly not okay on our part, can't we just wait until we have them fixed in order not to break a so high number of pages? @all: if somebody knows how to handle this stuff and could lend a hand (ie: a bot, a script, etc.) it'd be appreciated. Thanks, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 16:08, 18 April 2018 (UTC)
