I have pushed 1.28.0-wmf.19 on thursday at 19:10 UTC. It quickly got
noticed that Wikidata was no more able to dispatch updates to the wikis
which is tracked in:

This Friday, I was busy debugging the issue and did not notice a task
about account creation being broken:

As soon as I seen that, I have reverted to 1.28.0-wmf.18 at 12:50 UTC.

Account creation has been impossible from Thursday 19:10 UTC until
Friday 12:50 UTC.   Please pass the word around as needed.

My deep apologizes for not having found out earlier the impact was so

I will write an incident report this afternoon with actionables.
