Change 260431 had a related patch set uploaded (by Dzahn):
add wikimania2017, regular and .m.

Change 260431 merged by Dzahn:

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/260431

added the DNS entry which is needed as the first step

wikimania2017.wikimedia.org exists now and the wiki installation can go ahead

From the puppet side we'll also need to add wikimania2017 to the wikimania ServerAlias in modules/mediawiki/files/apache/sites/wikimania.conf

@coren: I assume you should still be mentioned in https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Add_a_wiki#Start and that you've taken the necessary steps on the ops side?
Also, please see my question above.

Once the above is dealt with, I think I can begin with the MW parts.

@Krenair: I hereby notify myself. :-) More seriously, that doc should probably be amended as I should no longer be a point of contact starting Jan 1.

I would really prefer we remove both people from it and document exactly which steps need to be taken instead.
Previous question still blocks this.

I can tell you what the Labs side of things is: run maintain-replicas after the database exists to create the views. AFAIK, the prod side involves adding the database to the list that should be replicated, something which I think only Jaime currently knows the secret sauce for.

Have clarified with @coren what the status of this is (there should be an announcement out which I can verify this from before we even have a chance to add the MW config for it), and checked that this is okay with @jcrespo. I'll put the apache part up.

It seems to make sense, given the (comparatively) low volume of that Wiki. Yes, please.

Ok, amended and squashed this into one change:

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/260521/

Everything is like wikimania2016 then.

@coren asked me to chime in since holidays and freezing and such. This is fine. {{approved}}

Isn't 2016-01-11 going to be after the freeze? Or are you actually approving it to be done during the freeze?

@Krenair: That's what I asked @demon to okay; we want to be able to do press releases in January so the more time to set the wiki up the better. :-)

Okay, well what day do you think we should do this on then?

We just missed a window, and tomorrow is a "Friday", I think. How does Dec 28 sound to you?
