Hello! On which section does the centralauth database live? It does not appear to be on any of the db lists at noc.wikimedia.org. Perhaps a view needs to be created for it, too?

Fixed! Thanks for the report.
https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/659440 appears to have broken the hover state for Vector dropdown menus. For example at https://en.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/wiki/Test_indicators I must click on the "More" menu at the top-right for it to show (if you don't see the More menu, try running e.g. mw.util.addPortletLink('p-cactions', '#', 'Foo'); ).

PR merged! Thank you. I'll go ahead and resolve this. Arabic Wikipedia has already confirmed CopyPatrol to be working for them: T271823
Hello! I'd like to point out that this will surely cause widespread breakage. Tool-Pageviews, XTools, and Event Metrics will all break (when requesting a range >1 year), and that's only naming the tools I personally maintain. If possible it would be good to have ample time to fix these.

@alaa Sorry for the long wait. The fix for T273017 appears to have worked :) There is now an Arabic feed: https://copypatrol.toolforge.org/ar (at the time of writing there is only one case that was auto-closed by the bot because the page was deleted).

@eranroz Could I get a sanity check on https://github.com/valhallasw/plagiabot/pull/20 ? I admit it's a bit of guesswork but it seems promising based on my quick research. If there's no opposition, I might go ahead and try this in production to see if it fixes support for Arabic. Thanks for the help.
For PHP/Symfony users, the ToolforgeBundle has been updated to include a replicas connection manager. This goes by the dblists at noc.wikimedia.org to ensure your app has no more connections than it needs to. It also has a simple command (php bin/console toolforge:ssh) to open an SSH tunnel for easier development on local environments. See docs at https://github.com/wikimedia/ToolforgeBundle#replicas-connection-manager
With the Graphiod service undeployed (T242855), is this task still valid?

No errors in the past week, verified on Logstash. We also removed the filter from mediawiki-new-errors dashboard. Closing as resolved, thanks for the help, all!

A quick web search brought me to https://stackoverflow.com/questions/3942888/unicodeencodeerror-latin-1-codec-cant-encode-character#comment34031454_3942888
Okay, I think there is a bug with the bot. Here is a stack trace of a recent error:

Just a note that this has been running for a few days now, there just apparently haven't been any copyvios yet. Once there are, https://copypatrol.toolforge.org/ar should magically start working.
Community-Tech would be happy to participate in early testing. All we need to do to test the new infrastructure is update our code in accordance with https://wikitech.wikimedia.org/wiki/News/Wiki_Replicas_2020_Redesign#What_should_I_do%3F , correct?

PR merged at https://github.com/wsexport/tool/pull/309. I'm assuming this belongs in the sprint?
@Niharika Any chance this could get some attention? Special:Investigate and all its benefits are largely unusable by stewards :( I can still use the Timeline view but I don't get the user agent highlighting feature, for instance.
