Thanks Niklas for the helpful writeup.

One general question I have for you is: Is there anything I should do
from my end for the bugs you reported? Specifically from Platform/Core's
perspective? It looks like Aude responded to the Wikidata action=parse
one, which is good.

Thanks again,

> * While testing TUX on wikidata.org, I found out that the fix for bug
