since a few months a weekly report  about events in the german-speaking
Wikipedia and the Wikimedia-organizations is send to a few mailing-lists; I
think that this is a very good idea and so I will try to establish something
similar for the TS too (on monthly base). For the soon-ending April I wrote a
short report below and I think we can all together write a report for May on a
= Report for April 2012 =
== s2 and s6 corrupt ==
It was discovered this month that the databases of s6 [A] and s2 [B] are
defect and will need a re-import. A dump of s6 was already requested at 2.
April at the WMF, but no response yet. A dump for s2 will be requested soon.
== s1 is back to normal ==
Both server for s1 (enwiki) are back to normal [A].
==Interwiki-Bot-MMP-rule is in charge ==
On 2. April the new "No interwiki-bos outside the interwiki-bot-MMP"-rule
became relevant [A]. Because no MMP was created to that timestamp yet, the
date was moved to 15. Mai [B]. Toto Azéro started a thread about planing the
MMP short time ago [C].
== SGE-Update not successful ==
A second try to update the SGE to version 6.2u5p2 was not successful [A]. The
import of the old config into the new system aborts every time. We need the
update to include the new Linux-boxes.
==Reminder of hackathon ==
Sumana Harihareswara reminded us about the Berlin hackathon which will take
place in Berlin (Germany) in the beginning of June [A].
==Wikidata started ==
The working on Wikidata started on 1. April [A]. This is not a real topic for
the TS at the moment, but I am sure that plenty of tools will be created as
soon as the project is alive.
==DaB. added as TS-Announce-ML-admin ==
The WMF-techs added me as a admin for the Toolserver-announce-mailinglist so
that I can add and remove people myself (before only River could do that).
More people should be able to send important mails to that mailinglist in near
Until next month,
