Description

Would be nice to bring it back to a working mode.

When I try to edit any article, like:
https://de.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/w/index.php?title=International_Standard_Serial_Number&action=edit

I see (in german) "ACHTUNG: Die Datenbank wurde für Wartungsarbeiten gesperrt, so dass deine Änderungen derzeit nicht gespeichert werden können. Sichere den Text bitte lokal auf deinem Computer und versuche zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt, die Änderungen in die Wikipedia zu übertragen."

Which just means: Read-Only mode.

Exact message:
Warning: The database has been locked for maintenance, so you will not be able to save your edits right now. You may wish to copy and paste your text into a text file and save it for later.

The system administrator who locked it offered this explanation: The database has been automatically locked while the replica database servers catch up to the master.

This is because the DB was corrupted during last week cloud outage. See T216404
