[This bug post is partially inspired by MZMcbride's post to wikitech-l - https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2018-March/089640.html ]
https://status.wikimedia.org is a status monitor site hosted by CA App Synthetic Monitor (I think prviously they were called watchmouse).
The page does include things such as google analytics (See T115945). This is deemed ok because it is an "external" site.
And also of interest
I also have no idea what our relationship is with CA App Synthetic Monitor, but if we could convince them not to have google analytics on that page, that would be cool :)
