Queridísimos amigos,
A slightly more digestible update this week. Particularly of note are the
discussions on English and Spanish Wikipedia about enabling the <mapframe>
feature.

==Discussions==

=== Search ===
* Erik manually speed up the process of moving results (categories)
in-between indexes in response to a bug filed for the same search result
listed twice in the same query, however, while this type of move is
underway, because there are tens of millions of changes, there will be
duplicates that show up. [0]
* Erik also fixed a bug where the <span> tags were being 'eaten' in the
highlighted search preview output [1]
* Gehel fixed an issue that was found during the last cluster restart, when
the cluster failed to recover properly, by tuning the elasticsearch
recovery settings [2]
* David and Gehel fixed an issue where the api feature logs were not being
sent to both eqiad and codfw clusters [3]
* David finished up the large amount of work needed to be done to release
the 1.0 version of the ltr (learn to rank) plugin [4]

=== Analysis  ===
* Chelsy wrapped up the initial analysis of some concerns with the mobile
search dashboard data and wrote up next steps [5]

=== Portal ===
* Jan and Deb are planning next steps to kicking off automating the
Wikipedia.org portal updates [6]

=== Maps ===
* Paul has been investigating several issues for switching the
geoline/geoshape to a new schema and if we should remove the old
 kartotherian/render repo [7] [8]
* Discussions are continuing for enabling mapframe on English and Spanish
Wikipedia. [9] [10]
