A recent wiki edit on en.wikipedia changed the license version in the footer.
A long time ago legal had requested from Operations (before it was SRE) to add a monitoring check to make sure the legal footer does NOT change.
So now it is alerting.
Questions here for legal are:
- does it matter to you that the version changed to 3.0?
- do you still want this kind of monitoring and should we contact you if it happens again?
- should we just adjust the monitoring so that from now on the new version is the expected one?
- is it good or bad that it alerts on every version change in the future?
23:05 <+icinga-wm> PROBLEM - Ensure legal html en.wp on en.wikipedia.org is CRITICAL: Text\sis\savailable\sunder\sthe\sa\srel=license\s+href=(https:)?\/\/en.wikipedia.org\/wiki\/Wikipedia:Text_of_Creative_Commons_Attribution-ShareAlike_3.0_Unported_LicenseCreative\sCommons\sAttribution-ShareAlike\sLicense/aa\srel=license\shref=\/\/creativecommons.org\/licenses\/by-sa\/3\.0/ html not found https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/members/28/ 23:05 < mutante> ^ duh.. those are content checks on wiki 23:05 < mutante> somebody edited a footer maybe
23:10 < AntiComposite> yup, this is what cause the legal html alert https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=MediaWiki:Wikimedia-copyright&diff=1072378717&oldid=861624479&diffmode=source
23:11 < RhinosF1> AntiComposite: should it be reverted? 23:11 < AntiComposite> probably not 23:11 < AntiComposite> CC license statements are supposed to have the version in them 23:12 < mutante> ah, Thanks for that AntiComposite 23:12 < mutante> then the monitoring needs to be adjusted 23:13 < mutante> hardcoding a version isn't ideal for a check like that (later comment: or IT IS exactly what is supposed to happen for a legal check)
