Thanks Pierre-Selim and other. Seems to be becoming a bit of a tradition 
to have a sprint last week of August to get stuff fixed again. I'm quite 
happy Jean-Fred picked up the role of maintainer.

The current status is:
* Update database runs, but some sources (countries) need to be updated 
and fixed 
* Categorization bot seems to work again. I see a lot of files being 
categorized a couple of days ago 
* Unused images bot is still broken, but I found the source of the 
problem and looks easy to fix (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T110829)

I was fixing stuff but toollabs just died. I hope it will be back online 
later this afternoon so I can get some of the bugs fixed.

Every year the categorization bot gets overloaded. Right now it has 
about 30.000 images it can't categorize. That means that every day it 
runs it goes through the same 30.000 images and can't to anything. 
That's quite a waste of resources and time. If you look at 
you'll see the top "offenders":
* About 17.000 images in 

* About 3.700 images in 
* About 2.000 images in 

I know quite a few people from Italy are on this list. Italian folks, 
could you please spend some time on emptying out this category? With the 
current backlog me or Jean-Fred are probably just going to disable the 
bot for Italy because it slows down everything. Italy is also high on 
so I wonder if everything is set up correctly for Italy. Looks like a 
bit of a mess to me.  Why do we even have
