Is this task done now?

If we want to set a default locale for images built by Blubber, we can set LC_ALL or LC_CTYPE. The former overrides all other locale environment variables, the latter only for character sets. The former is simpler, the latter is a smaller change to status quo. I don't know which is better.
C.UTF8 does not exist. In every other locale I try, a UTF8 suffix is an alias to the UTF-8 suffix (with the dash).
This does report the C.UTF-8 locale as being available:
Hm, this is strange now. This works on my host:

19:21 exolobe4:~/uni $ docker run unitest env LC_ALL=en_US.UTF8 python3 -c "print('étoile')"
I confirm that generating the locales in the image, or installing locales-all (which has all locales generated) will make the étoile test work. I agree that it might be good for Blubber to automatically add one of those, but at least there's a workaround without Blubber changing. locales-all adds about 125 MB to the size of the image, so generating a UTF8 locale is probably better.

I'd fine the timestamp part of the tag much easier to read if it used a delimiter between date and time:

I've linked my new meta.wikimedia.org and mediawiki.org account to Phabricator now. @chasemp OK?
I've emailed techsupport@ to get an account on mediawiki.org. (I have one of the office wiki, but it seems not on medaiwiki.org):
I already have 2FA enabled on Phabricator.
I don't seem to be able to create an account with a "(WMF)" suffix on mediawiki.org.

@chasemp is that better?
