RobLa added a comment to T5993: jobrunner1 temporality was unable to run jobs leading to a critical backlog..

I learned a lot via DM about the not-quite-outage. The most interesting theory I've heard (and I *think* that @RhinosF1 gets credit for this) is that the job for updating global user pages is dying for some reason. However, it could be that something other process (which is trying to be helpful) is killing those processes.

This makes me hopeful:

It's my understanding from chatting with @RhinosF1 that some of the jobs in the job queue are getting backed up. I'm pretty rusty on my MediaWiki skills, so I'm not yet familiar with with which set of jobs, and whether the problem is with something in MediaWiki core or with one of the many Miraheze custom jobs.

RobLa added a comment to T5244: Perform/write postmortem for the RamNode->OVH migration.

FYI, I've moved the template I'm using for these postmortems out to https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/User:RobLa/PostmortemTemplate . One change I'm contemplating making to the template is making it less focused on the people and more focused on the thing, by making it one big pool for the "what went well?" section, and another big poll for the "what should we look into?" section. We may be aggregating these sections before we publish https://staff.miraheze.org/wiki/Postmortem-T5244 .

RobLa placed T5244: Perform/write postmortem for the RamNode->OVH migration up for grabs.

Thanks @John . I started something here: https://staff.miraheze.org/wiki/Postmortem-T5244 . We can move this to the public wiki to a better URL when we're ready to make this public. While I'm in here, I'm going to unassign this task from myself. Feel free to assign this back to me, or to @Southparkfan , or assign it to yourself (@John) if you'd like to lead the postmortem.

I've assigned this to myself as the original assignee, but I'm not sure where/how we want to do this. I'm assuming we should have a wiki page someplace on meta. Should I create a wiki page at https://meta.miraheze.org/wiki/Tech:Postmortem_RN-OVH_migration_2020-02-17 or someplace else? (or give it some other name?)

This is kind of a bummer. @Psephomancy - what do you think we should do about this?

@Psephomancy suggested:

For example, https://electowiki.org/w/index.php?title=BPW&action=history should have clickable links to https://electowiki.org/wiki/User:KVenzke, [...] instead of just showing an unclickable imported>KVenzke.

@AmandaCath - thanks for the clarification. Almost all of the content on electowiki.miraheze.org was copied from wiki.electorama.com by @Psephomancy , which is totally legal provided that the copy is done in accordance with the Electowiki:Terms_of_Use (in short: provided it is done in accordance with CC-by-sa 3.0 for most articles). Do you believe that the attribution provided on the Miraheze copy of Electowiki is sufficient for the articles that are clearly published under CC-by-sa 3.0 by their respective authors?

@AmandaCath , I'm confused. It's my understanding that UserMerge is deployed by Wikimedia (judging from the list of deployed extensions on login.wikimedia.org), and that would imply that UserMerge and CentralAuth are compatible. Moreover, IIRC, UserMerge was pretty important extension for Wikimedia's deployment of Unified login.
