Approved to join the Tool Labs standards committee

Congratulations! The WMF would like to appoint you to join the Tool Labs standards committee as a founding member. The initial policies state that the Wikimedia Foundation's Volunteer NDA must be signed by a nominee before being appointed. We have created task T154625 to track the process of making sure that everyone has signed the NDA agreement. If you know that you have not yet signed the Volunteer NDA, please create the initial request to start the process. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me on my talk page, by email, or on irc as appropriate. I look forward to working with you to make Tool Labs better. --BryanDavis (talk) 23:32, 4 January 2017 (UTC)Reply

Wiki Replica c1.labsdb to be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 14:30 UTC

A tool you maintain is hosting data on labsdb1001.eqiad.wmnet (aka c1.labsdb). This server will be rebooted Monday 2017-10-30 at 14:30 UTC.

Normal usage of the *.labsdb databases should experience only limited interruption as DNS is changed to point to the labsdb1003.eqiad.wmnet (aka c3.labsdb). The c1.labsdb service name will not be updated however, so tools hardcoded to that service name will be interrupted until the reboot is complete.

There is a possibility of catastrophic hardware failure in this reboot. There will be no way to recover the server or the data it currently hosts if that happens. Tools that are hosting self-created data on c1.labsdb will lose that data if there is hardware failure. If you are unsure why your tool is hosting data on c1.labsdb, you can check the database and table names at

This reboot is an intermediate step before the complete shutdown of the server on Wednesday 2017-12-13. See Wiki Replica c1 and c3 shutdown for more information. --BryanDavis 00:20, 28 October 2017 (UTC)Reply

project-fa review

Hi, we're doing a review to make sure as many tools meet a minimum standard. I noticed project-fa tool doesn't have a description on toolsadmin, licence or a published repo. Could you add these information to this tool? Thanks! Komla Sapaty (talk) 05:04, 7 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

@Komla Sapaty Hi, I honestly don't remember what this tool is or does :/ I guess we need to ask other maintainers. Ladsgroup (talk) 20:18, 11 April 2023 (UTC)Reply
Yes. I've reached out the other maintainers too. Thanks. Komla Sapaty (talk) 15:27, 13 April 2023 (UTC)Reply

Please, rename me to MBH

Like on my SUL. Maxbiohazard (talk) 00:54, 17 March 2024 (UTC)Reply

@Maxbiohazard Hi, it's a bit complicated. Give me a bit. Ladsgroup (talk) 10:41, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Maxbiohazard Do you have an account in gerrit? Ladsgroup (talk) 10:43, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
If gerrit account is the different thing than LDAP account, than probably not. I have a Toolforge account mbh, a Phab account MBH, an LDAP account I don't remember name now (some sort of "MBH"). Maxbiohazard (talk) 10:47, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Maxbiohazard I am really sorry but for security reasons we have to postpone this until wikitech is out of picture for LDAP authentication. It has caused really major issues in the past :( My rough estimate is that it will be done in a couple of weeks at most. I will keep you posted and I'm really sorry about this :( Ladsgroup (talk) 11:01, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's not a problem, I can wait, but can you explain what's the issue? I should have of not to have LDAP account (or gerrit account) so you can did it now? I don't use Wikimedia gerrit, but I don't know, if I have a gerrit account (if it's the same than LDAP account, than I have it). Maxbiohazard (talk) 11:17, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
I can't explain it in public :( sorry, it's a security issue. Ladsgroup (talk) 12:08, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's OK. Maybe you could explain why this wiki isn't connected to SUL? Maxbiohazard (talk) 14:32, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
It used to be used for LDAP account management. Thankfully that will go away ( is handling that) and this wiki will join SUL soon. Ladsgroup (talk) 14:45, 18 March 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's not done yet? Maxbiohazard (talk) 06:55, 8 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
@Maxbiohazard nope, it's not as easy as flipping a switch, it'll take some time but soon Ladsgroup (talk) 16:44, 11 April 2024 (UTC)Reply
User:Maxbiohazard. We are making progress but not there yet. Give it a month or so. Ladsgroup (talk) 12:26, 13 May 2024 (UTC)Reply
