git pull
cd submodules/wikilabels
git pull
cd ../..

A new labeling campaign

You need to first introduce a new campaign:

$ ssh wikilabels-02.eqiad.wmflabs
ladsgroup@wikilabels-02$ cd /srv/wikilabels/config
ladsgroup@wikilabels-02:/srv/wikilabels/config$ sudo -u www-data /srv/wikilabels/venv/bin/wikilabels new_campaign wikidatawiki "Edit quality (5k, 2018)" damaging_and_goodfaith DiffToPrevious 1 50
{'form': 'damaging_and_goodfaith', 'id': 38, 'view': 'DiffToPrevious', 'active': True, 'name': 'Edit quality (5k, 2018)', 'tasks_per_assignment': 50, 'labels_per_task': 1, 'wiki': 'wikidatawiki', 'info_url': None, 'created': datetime.datetime(2018, 7, 11, 13, 39, 54, 282569)}

Note the id (38 in this case). And now you need to load the data into the campaign. Download the file in the home directory:

ladsgroup@wikilabels-02:/srv/wikilabels/config$ less ~/ | sudo -u www-data ../venv/bin/wikilabels task_inserts 38
