Qgil added a comment to T180854: Create discourse-mediawiki.wmflabs.org (pilot instance).

Re maintenance, I also wonder what is the role of the official way to update the software, which is pressing a button from the Administration UI (à la Wordpress). Backend upgrades through the command line are left for dependencies (i.e. Docker server requiring an upgrade) and when things go wrong via the UI (as it happened last time, when an almost 2-year jump of releases didn't go through by just pressing a button). In regular circumstances, administrators would receive emails for every consequent update available, and release notes (and probably the own UI) would explain when dependencies must be upgraded or when other deeper changes need to be made.
