[critical bug] MediaWiki:Withoutinterwiki-legend/fr : translation mixups: updates are going to the wrong page
Translartions are sent to the wrong page. Trying to set them correctly, the submission is accepted, but when we refresh the page, we see an unrelated resource.
And if we look deeper, we see that what was submitted has in fact changed another page, creating a mixup.
Very probably problem of index corruption (page or version ID's) in the database (I think there are duplicate ID's in some tables that should be unique).
A maintenance should be performed to check the database integrity (notably check all table indexes).
I just opened the page MediaWiki:Withoutinterwiki-legend/fr and it really shows the unrelated text, but clicking on "Edit" shows the text correctly.
This was a real bug (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T235188) and is what is referenced by the site notice at top. It was affecting transwlatewiki.net stince the beginning of month. The bug was a caching bug on the server. Still it affects some resources displaying incorrect "fuzzy" state (yellow icon) which seem to reoccur again. The issue was real and very strange. Its resolution is partial, as some other glitches are still occuring; the resolution seems to be non definitive because the impact is still not well understood. That's why the site notice at top remains.
Quite certain that these issues started appearing since our deployment last Wednesday (8th Oct, 2019). We should not be seeing this issue on twn any more, but if you do, please ping on the Phab ticket or here.
