Create a new form for making subtasks of T76375: [DO NOT USE] New Labs project requests (tracking) [superseded by #cloud-vps-project-requests]. Having a custom form should make the instructions more visible:
Before you request a project
Remember that you do not need a labs project to use Tool Labs (which has a lot of capabilities/features). You can request access to toollabs using a form on wikitech. With toollabs, underlying infrastructure will be taken care of for you, and you can focus on writing your tool / bot / researchy-thing. Only request a labs project if you want root on the VM for a specific purpose (or need testing VMs for MediaWiki changes, etc). Remember that if you have root you have responsibilities too! :)
Requesting a new project
To request a new project, create a subtask, with the following information:
Project Name: <projectname> Purpose: <reason for project request> Wikitech Username of requestor: <username>
Note that <projectname> should be alphanumeric with dashes - no spaces or special characters other than -.
