Note that there is no consensus in the Wikiquote community for such a development, so any resource invested in such a testing effort would need to be fine with this effort being eventually discarded and/or deleted.
I created this more specific task for Tools as requested, but there is a (more general?) Labs task at T213475

All these services are actively used, although I'm not sure who's taking care of them any more. Some of them are just a collection of scripts which run periodically on OSM data, but others require migrating (or recreating) databases etc., not a mere copying of files.

Magnus, does this still happen to you? I sometimes see reports of persistent 500 errors on other PHP tools with kubernetes backend, like citations.

There was a large discussion on irc spanning wikimedia-mailman and -ops that boils down to no one is comfortable or feels it is good practice to index lists that explicitly historically have not been.

https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_language is the authoritative description of what the extension is supposed to do (the extension was created with the precise purpose to satisfy those requirements) and https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Babel agrees.
There are open patches connected to this task.

How do you know that those bots actually passed the bot parameter in their API requests?
This sounds more like Relying on Anything that isn't Ours is Bad(TM). It seems that the concern here is that communication with non-Prod systems that we don't manage

Ok, I've checked and all I need to preserve is in the home folder. I've also pruned /srv. The VM can be deleted. Sorry for the wait!
It seems I need to update my forwarding to login on those machines, but I manage from the bastion. I'll copy my remaining files now, it shouldn't be much.

I think this is an example of how a failure looks like:

There is no mandatory timeframe, everything depends on the administrator who happens to review the registration. The message is probably harsher than what the person actually means on average.

Without checking what IP addresses are being used, there is no reason to think this would help anything. From the looks of it, they have thousands of IP addresses to use for this.

Adding an SPF record is an easy win. I've seen Gmail also provide other reasons for sending translatewiki.net notifications to spam; the LiquidThreads notifications lack some features we added to MediaWiki core's enotif (like a link to unsubscribe, also in the header) and that might contribute.

For what it's worth, this is typical "interwiki transclusion" territory.

It's fine to broaden the advice of this piece of interface, but the original text is not wrong, it just doesn't address the requirements beyond the attribution to the author. That "manner specified by the author or licensor" is a reference to 3(a)(1)(A)(i) of the 4.0 license.

We got a report from Canada on #wikimedia-tech and I confirm I see the connection closed here in Finland as well, so it doesn't depend on the ISP.

I've not seen this bug again, while I used to see it from time to time, so it might be fixed. I cannot find the original error in the logs so I cannot tell whether it stopped occurring...
I had to manually remove this suggestion yesterday and it still fails now.
I still see only Latin script usernames in https://tools.wmflabs.org/oabot/stats but I've not tested.
A workaround is now to alter the pywikibot generators manually in prefill.py. I'm fine if someone closes this, but I'll do so only after a test run.
The local streaming works pretty well. I've tested many domains yesterday and there are only a couple where it just fails for whatever reason.

There are about a thousand left from previous bot runs:
$ ack-grep -l '"proposed_change": "url=http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/' | wc -l 945
It was just a matter of low memory (I had reduced the parameter in jsub because the grid is overloaded). It needs at least 3 GB.

This is a valid report, thank you: it's very hard to collect such information.
