Superprotect statusEdit

Dear Dcirovic, since you are an administrator on a wiki from which no user participated in this discussion, I'd like to make sure you are aware of some recent events which may alter what the Wikimedia Foundation lets you do on your wiki: Superprotect.

Hi. A user recently reminded me that the Wikipedia in Belarussian taraškievica script has been moved to the be-tarask subdomain long ago. Pywikibot warns me about the redirect when I use the script for the List of Wikipedias by sample of articles, but if I change the language code to "be-tarask", it fails to find any article (score=0). I see that you still use "be-x-old" for the expanded sample as well, could you please try to find out what could be the issue? I have wiki matrices up-to-date in my Pywikibot installation. — Yerpo Eh? 07:23, 17 March 2020 (UTC)

@Yerpo: The WikiData in its inter-wiki section uses be_x_old, e.g. see d:Q104183. When one tries to register a new article for be-tarask (e.g. in d:Q103949), the identifier automatically becomes be_x_old. We should defer the script updates until WikiData, as a primary source of information, gets updated. Dcirovic (talk) 02:57, 18 March 2020 (UTC)
You're right, didn't notice that. — Yerpo Eh? 05:33, 18 March 2020 (UTC)

Script for the list of Wikipedias by sample of articlesEdit

Sorry about nagging again, but I have problems with the script for making the List of Wikipedias by sample of articles. I recently installed Python 3.8 to make full use of Pywikibot, and I don't know enough Python to upgrade the script that was written for 2.7. Can you help (at least by running it today/tomorrow, or, ideally, by upgrading)? — Yerpo Eh? 15:11, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

@Yerpo: I did that upgrade a couple of years ago. I will run the script, update tables, and share the script for your future use. This could be done within next day or two. --Dcirovic (talk) 15:32, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Many thanks; I still don't understand how did it even run, being dependent on Pywikibot which is written for 3.x — Yerpo Eh? 18:14, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
