Subject: NO_PROXY setting for interactive shells
To: Operations Engineers <ops(a)lists.wikimedia.org>
As part of an ongoing effort to tighten the policies on the web proxy
servers, I would like to deploy a change that would inject a sane
no_proxy environment variable into login sessions via systemd. This means
traffic towards our own websites will not risk going through the proxy
servers when a user manually sets the http(s)_proxy environment
variable(s). It will improve resiliency, latency and load on the proxies,
while reducing user overhead (as it’s a required manual action so far ).
No impact is expected.
I plan to deploy this Change next Monday 13th Feb at 12:00 UTC, if you have
any concerns or questions please let me know either via email or on the
