bd808 added a comment to T175086: Create and announce timeline for shutting down labsdb100[13].

https://github.com/bd808/wikimedia-cloud-vps-hostgroup-generator provides an out-of-the-box solution for using clush from any computer to target commands to any Cloud VPS project. Patches to https://github.com/bd808/wikimedia-cloud-vps-hostgroup-generator/blob/master/conf/classifiers.yaml are welcome to provide better targeting for projects that want to use this tool.

@Yashasingh I removed the tool from being a maintainer of itself. That is not needed for any operations. Please try to create a diffusion repo again and report back here if that works or not.

One thing I see at https://toolsadmin.wikimedia.org/tools/id/devyasha is that the tool is a maintainer of itself. I'm not sure if this is the root cause of the problem or not. That's probably a code path that has not been well tested in Striker.

bd808 added a comment to T175846: Request creation of Zppix-Wiki-AI VPS project.

Broadly speaking, having a Cloud VPS project that is 'owned' a Foundation team (or a single person) is something that has happened in the past but that we try to avoid on a policy basis going forward. This biggest reason for this is that it can become very difficult to keep track of why a VM exists and if it is being used or not in such a project. We have seen this happen multiple times in the past.

bd808 added a comment to T167155: Create cloud-admin and archive labs-admin mailing list.
  • Do NOT rename, as it requires downtime of the list server. It could also lead to re-indexing of the mbox file.
  • Create new cloud-admin mailing list, copy the settings and admin/list members from labs-admin.
  • Disable the old labs-admin mailing list so it no longer delivers mail, but leave its archives in place and untouched.
  • Merge change to operations/puppet:/modules/profile/files/exim/listserver_aliases to add in labs-admin: cloud-admin line.
  • test email to old labs-admin@lists.wikimedia.org to ensure it delivers to cloud-admin@lists.wikimedia.org.

    This should accomplish what you want on cloud-admin, as well as hopefully what is needed for the conversion of the old labs-l list as well. (It seems best to try it out on this lower traffic list first!)

    @bd808: Does this seem reasonable to you?
