I was chatting with some people on -discovery about what various different servers do, and I realised that beta has no terbium equivalent... And nothing is running the maintenance scripts automatically. Is this something that should be being tested?

There are a variety of maintenance scripts in mediawiki::maintenance::* in operations/puppet that do not look to be running in the beta cluster. These are enabled in prod by applying the mediawiki::maintenance role to a specific host in manifests/site.pp. I'm not sure the right way to go about applying this. I could add an appropriate node clause to site.pp but we are not using that for any other deployment-prep machines.
This is needed because one of the new features in Discovery rebuilds the autocomplete indices from a cronjob and without it the indices will grow stale.
