the Toolserver, but
apparently that's how WMDE is taking it, and it sounds like that's going to
be the inevitable result. To say otherwise is rather naive at this point,
given the size of the threads talking about this.
I'll be honest, I don't really care about the politics behind any of
this, and I'm going to ignore anything more related to that. WMDE
dropping Toolserver is their decision and it doesn't affect how Labs
will operate in the future.
Labs is adding infrastructure needed to support Toolserver users. If
there's anything the Toolserver community needs that isn't in our
current roadmap, I'm more than happy to work those issues with the
community. The environment isn't going to be exactly the same, so
tools and bots may need to be modified. We can provide the necessary
resources, access, and training to integrate into the new environment.
WMDE will be providing resources to help with migrations.
Overall the environment provided by Labs has the ability to be much
more flexible and much more powerful than Toolserver. I hope everyone
migrates over, but I'll understand if anyone feels like it's too much
