bd808 added a comment to T166170: Can't do git clone from some labs-instances.

url-downloader.wikimedia.org is the HTTP proxy that is used in the production network so that production servers can talk to a tightly controlled set of external hosts. An instance in a Labs project should not be using this proxy at all. Since this is affecting your use of git, is sounds like something has setup the http.proxy or one of the several other git proxy config settings for either the repo, your user, or system wide. This can also be done with a few environment variables such as GIT_PROXY_COMMAND.

@valhallasw and I think we can just move/delete these, but late in the day on a Friday before a 3-day weekend seems like a poor time to do this kind of cleanup.

The wm prefix seems to be redundant and I am not entirely happy about anything that looks a lot like a chapter name (we have WMSE and WMUA already in Phab; while a Czech chapter project would go under WMCZ instead of WMCS the name still confused me)...

@Nuria thanks for the clarification. I think we can handle helping with that. If you don't have hardware budget for deploying the new datastore we'll probably have to scrounge around and see if there is capacity in any of our existing data storage systems. That would be my only concern at this point.

@bd808 Amir and I just tried the tutorial and got telegrambot running on kubernetes, but it required an admin permission change for the .kube directory on /data/project/telegrambot from root:tools.telegrambot to tools.telegrambot:tools.telegrambot. Did you have to do this for stashbot too? If so may be something to investigate with tool creation.
