Hi!

Have you considered hosting it on tools.wmflabs.org instead?

Also @Halfak might already have a project for this?

@yuvipanda, I don't have a specific project in mind for WikiBrain. The services will need to hold onto a lot of of ram (~16GB) long term, so it seemed to me that a shared environment wouldn't work well.

As Aaron said, this software will push the limits of your largest VM (16GB). I'd feel much safer if I knew our system was sandboxed and had no possibility of affecting other software running on tools.wmflabs.org.

Hello! I believe I listed the wrong Wikitech username. It should be "Shilad Sen" instead of just "Shilad". Are you able to change this? Sorry for the mistake!

I've removed user 'Shilad' and added 'Shilad Sen.' Hope that helps!

Perfect. Thanks!
