The WP1 tools have 4 parts:
- A gathering tool which pass through all WPEN Wikiproject evaluated pages every day and maintain an internal DB of evaluations
- A bot which update wikiproject statistics pages on WPEN (see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:WP_1.0_bot)
- A custom web solution with specific tools https://tools.wmflabs.org/enwp10/
- Datamining tools which basically extract key values for WP1 selections, see for example this kind of output: https://download.kiwix.org/wp1/
This tools are fundamental for the ENWP community, work together, need relatively robust HW resources to run properly. The openZIM/Kiwix relies also a lot on this tools and maintain them... and is currently actively working on them to improve their overall reliability.
As we want to have them all running together, have remarked that in many cases the Toolforge system seemed to suffer from instability (at least by running our - quite old - solutions), we require to be able to run them all on an adequate box, beside the 5 we already have to scrape Wikimedia projects. The fact that we have to leave the old Ubuntu trusty toolforge immedialy (deadline is next Monday) make us think that this is an opportunity to do that move.
