John closed T6935: Let Wiki Creators Manually Respond to Requests as Declined.

Canned Responses are either used or they’re not within the extension, adding an other option defeats the purpose of why they were added. The extension doesn’t force canned responses to be used therefore this is an issue for configuration rather than the extension.

Mar 7 2021, 18:56 · MediaWiki (SRE), MediaWiki
John closed T6006: Migrate to a Kafka Job Queue as Declined.

Considering our resources and facts about the current and new proposed system, I'm not seeing enough of a gain to justify allocating a very significant portion of our remaining resources to creating an entire service cluster which would require at minimum 8GB of memory and several cores, just to run jobs. We moved sessions from Redis to Memcached which provided a good performance boost, keeping in mind JobRunner still uses Redis that could be one step. Alternatively, we could also drop dedicated runners, take our main cluster up to 8 and running jobs on all of them. If we allocate 1 runner per server, that would give us 8 instances, which is double what we have right now.

Mar 7 2021, 17:57 · MediaWiki (SRE), MediaWiki
John closed T5976: Add the EventStreams service as Declined.

Going to mark as declined for now - a quick look into this suggests we'd need around 16GB to be able to process just our RC traffic alone, ignoring jobs as well. The actual gain in deploying this service as well is very small, so I don't feel like I can justify allocating the remaining RAM on a single server to a Kafka deployment.

@John, if I am understanding your and @Universal_Omega's concerns correctly, differentiating the sitenotice for wikis manually closed as opposed to automatically (i.e. by a script) would allow people to easily understand if they can adopt that wiki. This should decrease the number of RfAs that cannot be undertaken and reduce Stewards' workload.

Private wikis vs public wikis is now Done.

What remains to be done is manual closure vs script which is still blocked on community consensus.

Whether it's blocked on community concensus or not, about whether manually closed wikis can be adopted. I personally believe it should still be differentiated and to say that it was manually closed rather then it was closed after time
