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 c3.labsdb to be shutdown Wednesday 2017-12-13

A tool you maintain is hosting data on labsdb1003.eqiad.wmnet (aka c3.labsdb). This server will be taken out of service on Wednesday 2017-12-13.

Normal usage of the *.labsdb databases should experience only limited interruption as DNS is changed to point to the new Wiki Replica cluster. The c3.labsdb service name will not be updated however, so tools hardcoded to that service name will be interrupted until they are updated to use a new service name.

Tools that are hosting self-created data on c3.labsdb will lose that data if it is not migrated to tools.db.svc.eqiad.wmflabs (also known as tools.labsdb). If you are unsure why your tool is hosting data on c3.labsdb, you can check the database and table names at or phab:P6313.

Please see Wiki Replica c1 and c3 shutdown for more information. --BryanDavis 20:38, 15 November 2017 (UTC)Reply

2 requests

Firstly, please do check whether you can answer my question posted in this page. Secondly, I have posted a tool adoption request in this page for which I have not got any replies yet. I think I am eligible for the adoption from 27 April onwards. Adithyak1997 (talk) 14:03, 5 May 2019 (UTC)Reply

Sorry, I was been way too busy for the last two months. I've emailed the mailing list on how we want to proceed with T220272. As for T221451, I'm honestly not sure what is going on. --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 16:49, 5 May 2019 (UTC)Reply

video2commons server error

Hi Zhuyifei1999, it has been reported to me (see this tweet) that using video2commons produces the following error: "video2commons" tool I get a "An exception occurred: IOError: [Errno 30] Read-only file system". To me, it looks like that the server hosting the tools is having some issues. Can you look into that? Thank you. --CristianCantoro (talk) 16:28, 31 May 2019 (UTC)Reply

Should be fixed now. Could you check? --Zhuyifei1999 (talk) 18:41, 31 May 2019 (UTC)Reply
