- Helped get MediaInfo deployed on Commons
- Reduced load on the query service from the constraint checks (
phabricator:T204469 <https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T204469>)
- Worked on getting constraints checks run regularly in the background
so their results are complete in the query service (phabricator:T204714
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T204714>)
- Enabled access to arbitrary items and properties for Wiktionaries
- Working on infrastructure parts of the new termbox (the one showing
labels, descriptions and aliases) on mobile
