Wmopbot has a auto restart function, sometimes it delays up to 30 minutes to auto restart, if that doesn't happen it can be restart manually by a maintainer or an user with root access in toolforge.

To restart the bot delete the kubernetes pod and start a new one with the commands below:

kubectl delete pod wmopbot
kubectl apply -f pod.yaml

Obs: wmopbot does not use a deployment because it has a stop command in case it has some annoying bug, deployments do not have an easy way to be stopped.
