Revert in 01/2017: Request creation of wmwcourse labs project
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Project Name: Working with data in Wikimedia and MediaWiki
Purpose: To create mediawiki-vagrant instances where students learn to work with MediaWiki, especially with data imports and exports
Wikitech Username of requestor: Nikerabbit

More info on the course will be at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Working_with_data_in_Wikimedia_and_MediaWiki.

At the moment I am expecting maximum of 20 instances, so it would be nice if the limits would be high enough to allow this (I believe medium size instances are recommended for mediawiki-vagrant). If this is not possible, do let me know. This project is time bound and can be deleted in early 2017.

Small instances work fine for mw-vagrant at low request volume.

Okay, I can use small instances then.

Summation here is:

  • Quota for 20 small instances that will run mediawiki-vagrant
  • Will be removable in January 2017 (seems like it's for a course that runs through Dec)

@Nikerabbit is this right?

Yep. I said early 2017 in case the project work takes more time to finish after the lectures end in December.

Nikerabbit moved this task from Backlog to Needing on the User-Nikerabbit board.

You should be good to go here. Let me know if there are any issues. I'm putting this task in a stall state for later cleanup. Good luck with the course!

I started shutting down instances that are no longer in use. Please don't delete the ones still running just yet.

no worries, we won't circle back on this for a few weeks either way.
