Starting a new jobBy Kunal Mehta
Last week I officially joined the Site Reliability Engineering team at the Wikimedia Foundation. I'll be working with the Service Operations team, which "...takes care of public and “user-visible” services."
I'm glad to be back at the WMF; I had originally started working there in 2013 but recently took a break to finish school. SRE will be my ninth distinct team at the WMF, and I'm looking forward to even more adventures.
As part of transitioning into my new role, I have unsubscribed myself from most MediaWiki bug mail and Gerrit notifications. Once I get more situated I'll put out a more detailed request for new maintainers for the components that need them. I'll continue taking care of maintenance as needed until then.
P.S.: I created a new userbox about Rust on mediawiki.org.
