I don't know what to make of it, but it sounds like an issue with logging in, and the timing matches up with when login sessions were reset yesterday. So my guess is it's related to that. I know some bots keep their sessions alive with cookies, so my thought was to simply delete them. After digging I can't seem to find where that would be, or even the credentials themselves for that matter. We may need @eranroz's help here. (Side note -- I'm currently taking a course on Python, so maybe I'll be of more help in the future :)

Since eranbot is using pywikibot, I would expect the cookies to be in $HOME/.pywikibot/pywikibot.lwp and the password to be in $HOME/.pywikibot/ (or the config to specify a password file).

Based on the trackback, I don't think deleting the cookies file will help. The credentials aren't where I would expect them.

i reinitialize the credentials - should solve that

Same issue -- all sessions were forced to logout recently due to a security issue. I used history to find the command Eran used to reinitialize the credentials, but I need the password to proceed. @eranroz could you create a file with the credentials on Toolforge (and of course run chmod 400 on it :) ?

Appears to be restarted.
