The conclusion of T121279: Figure out a way to keep MerlBot running when the HTTP POST loophole is closed was that the bot could not be updated to use HTTPS for all POST requests to the Wikimedia production Action API. Fixing this requires source code changes to the Java applications that the merlbot tool runs.
Per T121279#2480749 the job entries for the merlbot tool have been commented out in the tool's crontab file. A backup was made as crontab-201607201730.txt and the entries commented out were marked with ## bd808 disabled for T121279 # to make finding them easier in the file.
These jobs are only disabled to keep them from consuming resources on the job grid while being ineffective in updating wikis due to the HTTPS-only server restriction. Any and all of them can and should be re-enabled as soon as the applications themselves are fixed.
