No more tasks for this script should be created, as it currently untested, and mostly untestable by design.
It is not acceptable to be having students doing tasks which are not tested. The result is low quality work, and a poor educational experience for the students.
We should be increasing test coverage, not decreasing it.

See https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T184033#3870750 . @Xqt is blocking the initial fix for this.

Thanks for your useful opinion @jayvdb , some remarkable work has already been done, and there are no more tasks available on GCI site, all was mark as done, but there are still a few patches to review.
