Platform Engineering Team/Platform Operations and Dumps

Mission / Objective


This team is responsible for all maintenance, sustainability and operation of services, infrastructure and products owned by the Platform Engineering team as well as the crucially important Wikimedia Dumps.

Reporting Issues/Requesting Fixes


Work Intake Process


For significant projects, you can follow Platform Engineering teams how to work with us process.



You can open a phabricator task and add the Dumps-Generation tag to your report or request. Someone will respond to your task within one working day, barring leave or illness or ongoing site emergencies.

If the bug you are reporting is urgent, resulting in dumps being generally broken, you can report it in #wikimedia-tech in addition to creating a phabricator task. Someone will look at it as soon as they are available, as long as some other site emergency does not pre-empt it. That can again take up to one business day but a best effort will be made.
