As part of the Gerrit migration to a new server, some repositories can
have stalled / outdated changes.  In the Gerrit UI you might find a
change suddenly open or some recent patchsets to no more be present.

Do not panic.

Some (not all) changes are stall in the past to roughly October 1st.  So
for example if the affected change got merged after that date and before
the migration, it can now show as open again, or a change might no more
show patchsets made before the migration.

The reason is some metadata have not been properly transferred to the
new server. The good news is that the changes metadata are still on the
the older server and we have to sync them to the new server.

We already fixed a few trivial use cases.  We are now looking at
checking every repositories and transferring the missing metadata.

Known affected repositories:

- mediawiki/extensions/MachineVision
- mediawiki/extensions/MobileFrontend

Some changes in mediawiki/core

And there are definitely more repositories affected, but we have a
script to find them all.

The task is: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T236114
