Event Timeline

My apologies if this ticket comes as a surprise to you. In order to ensure WMCS can provide a stable, secure and supported platform, it’s important we migrate away from GridEngine. I want to assure you that while it is WMCS’s intention to shutdown GridEngine as outlined in the blog post, a shutdown date for GridEngine has not yet been set. The goal of the migration is to migrate as many tools as possible onto kubernetes and ensure as smooth a transition as possible for everyone. Once the majority of tools have migrated, discussion on a shutdown date is more appropriate. See T314664: Toolforge: Decomission the Grid Engine infrastructure.

As noted in some use cases are already supported by kubernetes and should be migrated. If your tool can migrate, please do plan a migration. Reach out if you need help or find you are blocked by missing features. Most of all, WMCS is here to support you.

However, it’s possible your tool needs a mixed runtime environment or some other features that aren't yet present in We’d love to hear of this or any other blocking issues so we can work with you once a migration path is ready. Thanks for your hard work as volunteers and help in this migration!

Sorry I completely missed this ticket.

I tried following the instructions, but I can't seem to find the shared folder for pywikibot inside Kubernetes:
python3: can't open file '/shared/pywikibot/stable/': [Errno 2] No such file or directory

My problem seems related to T249787.

I tried the toolforge-python39-sssd-pwb image but it doesn't work:

tools.robokobot@tools-sgebastion-10:~$ toolforge-jobs run virgule --command /data/project/robokobot/scripts/ --image toolforge-python39-sssd-pwb
ERROR: unable to create job: "HTTP 400: invalid container image"

In the meantime, I'm forced to use the Grid.
Please note that I use Toolforge not because it's free but because I don't have to worry about updating Pywikibot.
