webservice seems down, but that might be an indicator of other issues such as no migration from Trusty to Stretch or other maintenance issues.

Now it's 404 Not Found.

@MarcoAurelio the best thing I can recommend to resurrect the tool is the Abandoned tool policy and the Toolforge-standards-committee

The access.log and error.log for this tool have not changed since mid-March which lines up with the shutdown of the Trusty job grid. There does not seem to be any public version control or license associated with the tool. This could make adoption more difficult.

As it appears this tool has been offline for more than 90 days before this ticket was filed, it seems unlikely to me that this is a tool so critical to the Wikimedia movement that the Cloud Services team should step in to bring it back online.

@bd808 At least you've provided some context/data that I hadn't before filing the task. Thanks!

Hello. Indeed the tool died when Labs made some annoying switch of the server or whatever. I asked SPQRobin to resurrect the tool, but he doesn't have the time. Myself I have no idea how to do this. I'd be glad to add someone knowledgable as a maintainer, if I can do that.

@MF-Warburg If you'd like, I can try to bring it back. I'd be able only if basic stuff is needed to do it, which I'd be able to see looking at the logs. Feel free to add me via If I fail to do so, you may happily remove me later. Regards.

Tried it several times now today.

Thank you! I'll take a look.

I've successfully restarted the web service for the tool. It's running on the legacy PHP 5.6 with k8s backend. Some tools do not display though. I guess they need fixes/rewrites for which I'm not qualified enough; but at least some tools are back up again.
