Per this email to maps-l, in order to manage potential costs and traffic spikes, and allow our maps resources to focus on wiki community uses, we need to limit access to our maps.wilkimedia.org/osm-intl/ API to ONLY support requests FROM the Wikimedia cluster.
This means that uses of maps on the Wikimedia wikis, Cloud Services hosted tools, and any internal development or testing tools should NOT be affected.
Requests made from all other domains should be declined. There is an existing patch for this at https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/c/operations/puppet/+/570156
Per the announcement, we will give 45 days for the shutdown to occur, so this ticket should go into effect Monday Oct 12th.
If you have a free knowledge related use case that’s impacted by this announcement, please let us know below, or on the maps-l mailing list.
