Week 39Edit

Hello, i have three time the newsletter--Woelle ffm (talk) 06:02, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

@Woelle ffm:, A patch to solve this problem has been merged. It will be deployed on production this week. So hopefully you'll not receive double or triple copies when next issue is out. – Ammarpad (talk) 06:34, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Tech News published three times within ten minutes (Week 37, 38, 39)Edit

Johan Johan Jönsson Hi, on phab:T232379 you asked me to come to you here. If you are the maintainer of Tech/News or of its publishing, so please read the sections above. It's the third week now, that MassMessage delivers the Tech News three times within 10 minutes onto all the discussion pages that subscribed to. I mentioned it in the phab task too. I don't really know why the problem has to be forked onto this talk page too, because of this problem seems to be a result of the problem mentioned in the phab task. Johan, please name me someone, who has to be assigned solving the problem. Thank you very much, Doc Taxon (talk) 11:28, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Doc Taxon: Ah, as explained in the Phab ticket, that issue has been addressed and there should be no more than one delivery next week. The reason we asked for comments here was because it had been stated in the ticket that this is being fixed this week (phab:T232379#5508822, phab:T232379#5519095) but you seemed to want more explanations, so I thought you also had other concerns. (: Does that answer your question, or am I missing something? /Johan (WMF) (talk) 11:46, 24 September 2019 (UTC)
To be clear, the regular train goes out Tuesday to Thursday and Tech News is delivered on Mondays, so Tech News this week was still affected but shouldn't be for issue 2019/40. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 11:47, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Johan ah, okay thank you very much and good hope! Doc Taxon (talk) 11:56, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Hopefully this means less annoyance in the future!
(Also, to avoid future confusion: Johan Jönsson isn't me, we just share two common names. My normal, non-WMF account is Julle.) /Johan (WMF) (talk) 12:16, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

  Comment I've backported the fix into current production version, it should work fine now. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 11:58, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Thank you! /Johan (WMF) (talk) 12:16, 24 September 2019 (UTC)

Week 42Edit

Hello, I got two copies again.--Woelle ffm (talk) 05:57, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Johan Johan Jönsson Week 41 all has been okay, but week 42 the Tech News have been delivered twice. Something is running wrong again ... Doc Taxon (talk) 08:37, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

Woelle ffm, Doc Taxon: This is human error. What happened was this: using the main target list, only a small number of targets actually got Tech News (possibly due to phab:T232392). My script to list exactly who failed for unknown reasons, so I ended up trying to figure it out manually before sending Tech News out again in smaller batches. Apparently not well enough. My apologies. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 09:37, 15 October 2019 (UTC)

If anyone wants to learnEdit

A few weeks back we posted Talk:Tech/News/Archives/2019#No issue next week – unless you want to write it but ended up having no newsletter that week, which is perfectly fine that week, of course. But if anyone would like to get more involved in writing Tech News, in a less forced manner, please let us know. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 10:09, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
