EddieGP added a comment to T203899: Undeploy EUCopyright related extensions and delete fixcopyrightwiki.

First of all, I agree with MarcoAurelio. I don't have any context here, but if the plan was to create a new wikis for a one-off campaign and delete it after said campaign is over, then you've probably found one of the most effective ways of burning wmf resources that could easily be circumvented. I'm not sure whether it's easy to create a wiki these days, but deleting it is definitely not, it requires a lot of manual work from different wmf teams, none of which are usually short on work.

EddieGP added a comment to T192532: Figure out a way to enable volunteers to use the puppet compiler.

As I understand it T97580 was about those volunteers who are already entrusted with root access to toolforge, and the solution seems to have been to add a user to the nda ldap group. Membership in the nda group and especially toolforge root access require far more trust than access just to the puppet compiler.

EddieGP added a comment to T191182: Stop using Differential for code review.

I explained in T191182#4103647 why I think this is wrong. So I am reopening this task. If Differential has no future in Wikimedia development then projects should get migrated and it should be turned off. Leaving yet another lingering system around just adds to technical debt, confusion, fragmentation.

Would turning off Differential loose the content it already has and break links to it?

EddieGP added a comment to T196466: Review (and remove?) use of 'shell user' right on wikitech.

AFAIK this used be a way to disable abusive accounts (by removing this right they could no longer log in, which normal blocking on wikitech didn't do iirc). Did keystone roles take that functionality over? Even if rarely used, there should be a easy way to disable abusive accounts on wmcs.

EddieGP added a comment to T191165: Special:Version shows wrong commit link if remote ends in '.git'.

At a short look: GitInfo::getRemoteUrl is used to determine the remote url, which just reads the git config file. The config file will have a different value for the remote (with or without .git) based on whether mediawiki/core.git or mediawiki/core was checked out, although there's no functionally difference in that as far as I know.

EddieGP added a comment to T188367: Use cron instead of Jenkins for beta deployments.

I wonder how this relates to T73305, which is about migrating away from a cron to jenkins for the puppet repo. Although these repositories are independent, it seems to me that the upsides/downsides on that other task still apply here. As I understand it the gist of these two tasks is that

  • crons work well, unless they break, in which case they suck at alerting and making it easy to find an offending commit
  • jenkins nice at alerting and helps to find the offending commit, unless it breaks for some reason we can't figure out (as described in this task description)

en_rtl is in the table of projects. Under "other projects" there's en-rtl. Probably all that's needed is to swap the underscore with a dash in the langlist-labs file at the top of the mediawiki/config repo. Thus tagging as goodfirstbug.

Each column in the "user" table is a row in the "describe user" view. The column "Null" in the "describe user" view above describes whether the respective column in the "user" table is allowed to have NULL as a value. It says nothing about whether we're nulling it on the cloud replicas for privacy reasons. You cannot see that from the "describe user" view at all.

I'm not sure what that sentence means ("the Null field" is a bit ambiguous). If you're refering to the integer "0" for user_id, yes, it works the same way (if no user id is specified, 0 will be used).

What's the correct closed status for "Whoever fixed this did so inadvertently or did not know about this task."?

EddieGP updated subscribers of T192473: deployment-prep has jobqueue issues.

The Kafka queue works correctly overall as far as I can tell.

EddieGP assigned T192206: Remove wildcard vhost for *.wikimedia.org to Joe.

Assigning to joe - it seems you're the one most comfortable (or only one comfortable?) on apache changes. Also per the previous -2 on the patch, so it's blocked on you anyway.

EddieGP added a comment to T151466: Performance Q2 2017/18 goal: Install and use mcrouter in deployment-prep.

both debian versions, though the stretch server isn't there anymore afaik

To the opposite, all app servers in deployment-prep have been replaced with stretch via T192071 (although you're right that the specific instance that made problems is gone). jfyi

EddieGP added a comment to T110115: Possible to run writes (e.g. UPDATE) on Beta Cluster replica.

Just judging from the task title, this and T183245: Ensure replica DB in labs is read-only look like being duplicates?

EddieGP added a comment to T192473: deployment-prep has jobqueue issues.

Once upon a time, appservers would insert jobs into a database table and jobrunner servers would read 'em from there.

Can we not look into using the core's Config interfaces instead?
