Delete tool speed-patrolling
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I created the speed-patrolling tool because the Toolforge API temporarily reported that speedpatrolling, the name I actually wanted, was unavailable; however, I was later able to create the speedpatrolling tool and migrate everything to it, so now speed-patrolling should be deleted. (Neither tool should have any users yet, I’m still in the process of cleaning this all up, so there should be no disruption.)

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2019-08-23T08:35:29Z] <wm-bot> <lucaswerkmeister> repurposing this defunct tool (T212968) for some ad-hoc CORS testing

@LucasWerkmeister have you re-abandoned this tool or should I avoid deleting it?

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2021-11-16T21:10:11Z] <wm-bot> <lucaswerkmeister> stopped webservice, apparently I left it running but access.log has no requests since 2019-11-03 (CC T212968)

I don’t remember what those tests were but I’m pretty sure they don’t matter anymore. Feel free to delete the tool. (If I want to do some more ad-hoc testing in the future, would it be okay if I create a dedicated tool with a name like lucaswerkmeister-test, or would that be frowned upon?)

Andrew claimed this task.

You're welcome to create tools for testing purposes whenever you need one.

In the meantime, I've deleted speed-patrolling.

Hm, is it intentional that there’s still a trace of the tool left behind, so to speak?

lucaswerkmeister@tools-sgebastion-07:~$ printf '%s\n' $(groups) | grep speed
lucaswerkmeister@tools-sgebastion-07:~$ become speed-patrolling 
This tool is disabled.

Mentioned in SAL (#wikimedia-cloud) [2021-11-18T13:59:43Z] <lucaswerkmeister> added “owner of abandoned tools” to maintainers and removed self (T212968)

(It still shows up in my groups, but maybe that’s just because credentials are cached for a bit.)
