I am a Wikimedia volunteer helping in various technical ways - e.g. MediaWiki development, software deployments to the Wikimedia cluster, and various other things. In the past I was also an OTRS agent (my old Mobile Apps and OCG-related tickets are usually related to this), and have recently become an OTRS agent again.

I have previously worked with the Wikimedia Foundation on VisualEditor and some other (usually MediaWiki) things. Please see @AlexMonk-WMF

I have opinions on things, which do not necessarily represent those of any organisation I am or have previously been affiliated with.

I prefer your approach to ssh::client. Let's split that and get it reviewed first?
I have ssh::server handling whether to add an IPv6 address as an alias or not, whereas you figure it out in the template. I prefer my solution. (Ultimately I think everything still works if we don't change this, but...)
We need to figure out how to handle role::puppetmaster::standalone properly.
You seem to lack a change to your PuppetDB PostgreSQL tuning.conf - I don't think we want to be creating large instances for this. We obviously need to do this properly with a template + hiera.

I have a commit on -puppetmaster02 that does this, and it seems to mostly work. It seems to only include ECDSA keys (preferred over RSA, ED25519 not possible because prod still has some precise hosts, and trusty's puppet version doesn't allow for them, DSA unused), but it excludes hosts that no longer exist, and it has the FQDN, instance name, IPv4 address, and 'undef' (IPv6 I think, which of course we don't use in labs) on each line.

What Json pages in particular pose security issues?

Krenair added a comment to T155867: Security Issue Access Request for Ejegg.

To apply patches from the security area in frack? I think there's been a previous discussion about this somewhere. In any case I have no objection to this.

Krenair closed T152892: corp DNS servers return SERVFAIL for PTR queries as Resolved.

Okay. It looks like some other reverse records are missing (I checked ns1, ns2, ldap1 and some others that don't seem to be publicly listed - looks like guest-tan1 no longer exists?) but the real issue here (SERVFAIL) is gone.

@wikimedia.org isn't just staff mail, OTRS and probably other systems use that.

Krenair added a comment to T152892: corp DNS servers return SERVFAIL for PTR queries.

Those records used to exist, just for some reason the server started responding with SERVFAIL at some point. The reverse records for tan[2-4] have gone missing though

Krenair added a comment to T155806: Add CAA records to our domains.

payments.wikimedia.org is only a single hostname cert though right? I haven't looked into the details of CAA but hopefully it would be possible to set up such an exception just for that record alone, without having to whitelist it for the whole of wikimedia.org?
Looks like corp uses DigiCert.
