[tools] again needles could not be pushed from osd to gitlab.suse.de due to "account has been blocked" and apparently no monitoring alert about this was observed
dheidler was asking me about needles he created on osd but could not see in the needles gitlab repo.
Checking logfiles on osd in /var/log/openqa
[2018-04-20T14:05:09.0636 CEST] [warn] GitLab: Your account has been blocked. fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.

nsinger and me gave up to monitor the logfiles with logwarn_openqa as recent contributions to openQA over the past year have introduced the noise in the logfiles so that the alerting was seen as unfeasible for us even more considering that we are not "tools"-team members and became frustrated and I assume no one else is doing that monitoring so that problem is not found easily. Potential outcome is loss of data as needle commits are never pushed.

FYI, On 2018-03-13 I have sent the email that I removed the cronjob from osd and AFAIK have not received any answer or objection. Funny enough, on o3 everything is still in place but seems to have never worked. I guess email sending from o3 is broken.
SHELL=/bin/bash MAILfirstname.lastname@example.org MAILTOemail@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org REPORTTOemail@example.com,firstname.lastname@example.org,email@example.com PATH=/suse/bin:/usr/lib/ccache:/opt/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/bin 10 * * * * root /opt/openqa-logwarn/pretty_logwarn /var/log/openqa 2>&1
/opt/openqa-logwarn/ is the git working copy of https://github.com/os-autoinst/openqa-logwarn.git
If anyone wants to try that again then one can just apply the same again on osd and fix the email sending from o3.

I created a new mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org . So far I can handle the load for o3 on the mailing and excluded some known warnings. Should we do the same for osd?
EDIT: We have a mailing list email@example.com now which is used for example for grafana monitoring messages. Also o3:/etc/openqa/openqa.ini was changed to not write log messages to /var/log/openqa anymore but all to the journal, meaning that openqa_logwarn does not work anymore as in before. Will create follow-up ticket.
