RyanLane added a comment to T133735: Formalize procedures for doing security releases of MediaWiki extensions.

That's also an acceptable solution, but if that's the case then Wikimedia Foundation should update the wiki page for their extensions saying that they aren't fit for third party use.

RyanLane reopened T104552: Change GeoData's license away from non-OSI approved WTFPL as "Open".

Max, I think you need to involve WMF legal in this. WTFPL isn't a valid license (it can't be enforced in some countries). If you're against copy-left software licenses, that's fine, but at least choose a recognized and approved open source license (your contract actually requires you to do so, you know...).

As for Ansible itself, see my quite extensive blog post on this:

There's a team that's working on deployment right? Are you a member of that team @GWicke? Proposing an alternative outside of that team means you're actively fighting them, making their job harder and wasting everyone's time.

RyanLane added a comment to T92826: Ready-to-use Docker package for MediaWiki.

Run + commit -> private/public registry also works really well for just letting people download pre-made versions of the images.

RyanLane added a comment to T92826: Ready-to-use Docker package for MediaWiki.

Interesting, @bd808, how one would orchestrate that in order to get one consistent MW up and running. We should give that a thought.

My (limited) understanding of the "Docker Way™" is that you use container linking to tell the wiki container how to find the db, cache, parsoid and other containers that would be needed to build a full app stack. The latest versions of Docker also have a tool called docker-compose that helps automate all of this.

@brion, a lot of people outside WMF are leaning towards SaltStack instead of Puppet.

{{citation needed}}

I was wondering whether we should use the chance an take a stab at salt here, as we have a fresh start.

If you are building a truly "native" Docker system I'm not even sure what you will need Puppet/Chef/Salt/Ansible for. A Docker file describes how to provision the container it describes. When you are only sticking a single service in the container then the configuration will probably generally come down to "install these packages from apt and then put these config files in place."
