    1. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/E89 (robla, 22:01:16)
    2. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T114640 (DanielK_WMDE, 22:02:24)
    3. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/E89 / https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T114640 (ori, 22:03:44)
    4. $wgContLang and ParserOptions::getUserLangObj() would be pretty much unused (DanielK_WMDE, 22:13:27)
    5. for variants + Ex:Translate + Ex:Wikibase: instead of getting the desired output language from global state, it should be possible to get it from Parser and/or ParserOptions (DanielK_WMDE, 22:15:52)
    6. <aude> afaik, there is inconsistency when {{int}} is used in how the cache is split vs. getTargetLanguage (DanielK_WMDE, 22:15:53)
    7. use page language for localized parser function names, etc (DanielK_WMDE, 22:17:12)
    8. IDEA: need to decide whether to deprecate $wgContLang and ParserOptions::getUserLangObj() (robla, 22:18:37)
    9. https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2015-November/083932.html (DanielK_WMDE, 22:18:38)
    10. <TimStarling> link trails and prefixes fall into the same category (DanielK_WMDE, 22:18:57)
    11. transcluding pages into pages with a different page language could cause confusion wrt parser function names, etc (DanielK_WMDE, 22:24:07)
    12. IDEA: distingiush between requested and effective target language. use *effective* target language when calling parser functions. (DanielK_WMDE, 22:25:56)
    13. for Ex:Translate, Foo would be user language, but Foo/de would be page language, which would not be content language, but overwritten by the suffix. (DanielK_WMDE, 22:35:14)
    14. A request lile https://zh.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=%E7%A7%91%E5%AD%A6&variant=zh-tw&uselang=fr should result in the effective target language being zh-tw (for content language zh). It should not be come fr, and not default to zh. (DanielK_WMDE, 22:39:48)

  2. PageRecord | RFC meeting | Wikimedia meetings channel | Please note: Channel is logged and publicly posted (DO NOT REMOVE THIS NOTE) | Logs: http://bots.wmflabs.org/~wm-bot/logs/%23wikimedia-office/ (Meeting topic: RFC meeting) (TimStarling, 22:43:19)
    1. https://zh.wikipedia.org/zh-cn/%E7%A7%91%E5%AD%A6 is another way of writing an explicit 'variant=zh-cn' parameter, and should also be supported on zhwiki (cscott, 22:48:13)
    2. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/244586/ did not break back-compat, did not introduce new classes (it replaced an interface with a class) (ori, 22:58:36)
