One such thread was https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/maps-l/2012-January/001103.html - IIRC there were more, but I'm on my phone right now...

Not so quick with Gpsies please - quite some years back we were in contact with first River and later Nosy to discuss whether/how it was acceptable to use these tiles with heavy caching on Gpsies side. (This is with me not having any further relationship to Klaus Bechtold of Gpsies other than that he liked the map style, and me liking Gpsies, so I cannot speak for Klaus.)
Things were fine since. If that is not the case anymore, there should at least be a grace period - Klaus has very much been a good citizen in this game.

Hi, just a quick note - I am the hikebikemap.org guy.

This seems to be down again, e.g. https://tools.wmflabs.org/geohack/geohack.php?pagename=Berlin&language=de&params=52.518611111111_N_13.408333333333_E_region:DE-BE_type:city%283469849%29 doesn't show tiles.

Thanks very much! That seems to also have triggered the process that is re-rendering the tiles when requesting so (i.e. with /dirty at the end of a single tile's URL).
I'm not sure whether we ever had an automatic tile expiration process set up or if that was just ideas floating around on the mailing list... I'll try to keep an eye on it, but maybe I should rather port over the hikebikemap style to work with the "new setup".

There are services other than Wikis that are using some of these tiles (I can only speak for the hikebike and hillshading tiles), like KDE Marble, and web pages like http://gpsies.com - they were in contact with previous admins and got told it wouldn't be a problem to deliver these tiles through them. Actually, there was even extra work done to accommodate these services during the switchover to wmflabs.
While this probably wasn't a proper service level agreement, I'm kinda surprised to see the toolserver replacement tiles.wmflabs.org go so soon.
