Hey folks,

We (The Revision Scoring Team[1]) are happy to announce the deployment of
the ORES service[2] in production at a new address:
https://ores.wikimedia.org. This will replace the old Wikimedia Labs
address soon: https://ores.wmflabs.org. Along with this new location, we
are running on more predictable infrastructure that will allow us to
increase our uptime and to make the service available to MediaWiki and
extensions directly.

We've also begun deploying the ORES review tool[3] as a beta feature on
Wikidata and Persian Wikipedia in order trial the fully integrated
extension. Once enabled, the ORES review tool highlights edits that are
likely to be damaging in Special:RecentChanges to help you prioritize your
patrolling work. ORES is an experimental technology. We encourage you to
take advantage of it but also to be skeptical of the predictions made.
Please reach out to us with your questions and concerns.

We'll soon begin to deploy the ORES review tool to more wikis. Next up are
English, Portuguese, Russian, Dutch and Turkish Wikipedias. We can deploy
to these wikis because those communities have completed Wiki labels[4]
campaigns that help train ORES' classifiers to differentiate good-faith
mistakes from vandalism. If you'd like to get the ORES review tool
deployed in your wiki, please reach out to us for help setting up or
completing a Wiki labels campaign on your local wiki. Wikimania
participants can also attend our workshop[5] during the hackathon to get
setting up ORES for your local wiki.
