'webarchivebot' tool's custom webarchivebot-backend crashing because of code that expects /usr/sbin/sendmail
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Found while working on T246559: Investigate CrashLoopBackoff Pods on 2020 Kubernetes cluster.

$ kubectl logs webarchivebot-backend-784564bb-7n8hl

2020-03-01 07:52:36
sh: 1: /usr/sbin/sendmail: not found
Archiving... Connection to the DB failed: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user ''@'' (using password: NO)

The Kubernetes environment does not include sendmail or a sendmail alternative binary. Instead Kubernetes tools should use SMTP directly via the gateway.
