I noticed in deployment-charts/helmfile.d/services/README.md this line:
- if you need external traffic, serviceops also needs to configure LVS and DNS to enable you to receive traffic from outside or from other WMF services.
I was under the impression that we couldn't allow external traffic to the new link recommendation service. But if we could, it would be really nice for:
- local devs not having to set up their own service
- QA and Product Managers can query the service directly to assess quality of results
- Community members can build gadgets that integrate with the service outside of Growth Team's planned way to present this tool's output to users
So, if we could allow external traffic, that would be quite nice. But it should not block initial deployment.
