Danny_B added a comment to T11474: Incorrect rendering of links with adjanced text.

The example is pretty descriptive, I'd say. Because of linking to the description of that exact part of the word.

Danny_B added a comment to T11405: Need to watch the project programmatically.

How about this: we'll play the "5 whys" game described in Describing Root Problems to get to bottom of this problem. After we figure it out, you tell me why you didn't provide that information in the first place and how to improve the documentation so that it's clear what we're after. Sound good?

Fair enough. I'm totally willing to sprinkle my head with ashes after I'll find out what exactly is causing the misunderstanding of what "root cause" is. ;-) But not knowing it is obviously not helpful and leads to the same situation again.

Danny_B added a comment to T11312: Watch / Subscribe project Herald action needed.

A small (partially off-topic) note about feed - in such a high traffic Phabricator instance like ours (WMF), it is nearly unusable. Fortiori if there is no (preferably customizable) real feed (Atom, RSS). Lack of feed support in Phabricator is one of its biggest disadvantages. I know there was some task here about it but I can't find it now.

Danny_B added a comment to T11368: Allow to watch only single column of the workboard.

I don't have any idea where further/deeper to go than to what I already described in the description:
User is not interested in being notified about all tasks of the given tag, but only on those which are in particular column.
If you ask "why", I can imagine perhaps "I don't want to be spammed by things I am not interested at".
Perhaps might yet be worth to note, that it obviously applies to boards sorted by categories/area, not progress-wise (Kanban).
I can also assume it is related to discouraging of "tracking tasks" (ie. due to many issues with task graphs) which are typically exactly equal to such workboard column - they "monitor" certain area of the project, so user is subscribed to them, but not watching the entire project.
I don't know what to add more. Better if you ask.

Also, before that is done, rather than showing "Task graph too large to display ..." message, have fallback to the old plain list of tasks. Therefore the information will still be available, but just simply not provided as fancy...

I found a workaround in the meantime: Press ` and then space (or any other key). The issue obviously is that ` is being sent like dead (combining) key on en-US keyboard layout.

I mean even having just a "Revert" button for each change would be easier
Even if you had 50 to click, it's better than manually undoing :)

Danny_B added a comment to T10989: Moving task in the same column of the workboard causes its update.

These are third-party extensions, not other upstream applications, right?

Yes.

Why do you consider this to be a bug in Phabricator rather than in those extensions? Does the documentation say "this field is updated only when a 'meaningful' update is made to an object, and you can and should rely on it to have this behavior when extracting data from Phabricator" somewhere?

It's logical - you can not build reasonably working application on wrong dataset. One would assume, that maybe in future, Phabricator (either directly or via an extension) will have support for such stats too (as it currently already has some stats such as burnout charts or so...)
Inability to do such stats due to unreasonable dataset below makes Phabricator (otherwise good application) useless for teams which are trying to improve (read: shorten in this particular case) the task life-cycle - and that's pretty much every team since noone wants to have long time untouched tasks without any action taken... ;-)
