EddieGP added a comment to T182733: Address proximity of service deployments to train deployments problem.

From the Deployments page right now ( https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Deployments&oldid=1780713 ), I can't really see how the proximity was removed for Wednesdays. According to that table the train is planned for 12:00–14:00 PST, and service deploys happen at 13:00–14:00 PST - not only that this is still proximal, it's even overlapping now?!

For folks from the future: we should not drop the Wiki Replica views until after the databases are placed in deleted.dblist. It makes everything easier.

EddieGP added a comment to T184433: Deletion of als and mo wikis causes halting errors in https://tools.wmflabs.org/meta/userpages.

Bryan ran maintain-meta_p --all-databases --purge command (as documented on https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/Delete_a_wiki) during the deletion process (sf T181925#3879345), which didn't work, because the deletion of wiki replica views predates the deletion in prod, which means the patch which removed the wikis from various dblists and added it to deleted.dblists wasn't applied yet at the time Bryan ran the command, but maintain-meta_p relies on the dblists files to build the table.

This is now live. I've verified it working by opening https://test.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3AEmailUser&target=<user name of some autocreated but never used account>. Before swat, it loaded the form to mail the user, now it says "This user has chosen not to receive email from other users." I can't test whether this still works for the bureaucrat, steward, wmf-supportsafety and global-renamer groups though, that has to be checked by a member of these groups.

Hey @TBolliger - unfortunately not, as there is a deployment freeze for this and next week because of the holidays (so that errors during christmas/new year are less likely and thus the probability that ops have to work on fixing said errors during their holidays shrinks).
Normal deployments resume Jan 2nd. I've already scheduled the patch for Jan 4th, because I know I'll be around that day; if I manage to be online on the 2nd, we might as well push it out then, but I can't guarantee that.

EddieGP added a comment to T182927: various .beta.wmflabs.org domains use an invalid ssl certificate.

Right now the plan is to leave everything as-is until it is possible to get a certificate that covers all subdomains (without anyone paying anything). I don't want to play whack-a-mole with missing redirect subdomains on the certs, and Let's Encrypt are expected to roll out support next month anyway.

EddieGP added a comment to T182927: various .beta.wmflabs.org domains use an invalid ssl certificate.

Actually to mirror prod we'd need a wildcart certificate, which isn't available to us right now.

That wasn't my point. "To mirror prod" was meant to say "we want those domains to exist, because we also have them as subdomains under the real wikipedia.org/wiktionary.org/... domains". Basically my question is whether we should kill those domains completely or get an LE certificate for them.

So I suggest redirecting user pages and Wiktionary without change of tiltle, and redirect other pages through the search tool in Romanian.

EddieGP added a comment to T169450: Redirect several wikis.

Afaiui nobody cares about the database still existing but nothing pointing to it. I read it as all the worries expressed being about different places in mediawiki (!= database) linking to a site that doesn't exist. For example we wouldn't want the site matrix to link to mowiki, and clicking that link taking me to a page that just redirects to rowiki, which is an example for what a was called a 'phantom wiki'. So as Reedy said there is some cleanup needed here and it's more work than just creating a link in the apache config. But I don't think someone actually said that it'd be necessary to delete the database from the mysql servers.

JFTR, I answered marostegui on irc yesterday: That patch isn't merged yet, it especially needs review by DBA (likely @jcrespo as you already reviewed it once before?) to continue. I've got the impression that it's on their backlog (albeit low-priority, as mentioned above) and I'll just have to wait for that. Once it has been merged I'll let it ride the train and find someone to run it manually for all wikis, so that the first run is not done by an unattended cron. If that goes fine, we'll deploy the cron.

Looks fixed to me!

EddieGP added a comment to T154026: On mobile, http://wikipedia.org/wiki/Foo redirects to https://www.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foo which does not exist.
  1. https://wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergdietikon -> MediaWiki (or its apache frontend?) gives a 301 to https://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bergdietikon

It's apache: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/source/operations-puppet/browse/production/modules/mediawiki/templates/apache/sites/wwwportals.conf.erb;fa98849bd4fb653be126d0e56b65f99ba3a48c6d$16

EddieGP added a comment to T27000: Deploy ThrottleOverride extension to Wikimedia wikis.

Should we have T174895: Convert ThrottleOverride to use a wiki page for storage as a blocker for the deployment? I image a migration afterwards will be much harder (and create meaningless effort for different parties, such as DBAs creating and dropping those tables) than sorting that one out beforehand. It'd also solve T147367: Special page actions should have API equivalents, which should probably be a blocker here anyways.
