Testwiki2 is now moved from group0 to group1

test2wiki [0] used to be a group0 wiki, meaning it used to get new
deployments at Tuesday of every week, at the same time that other test
wikis get deployments.

Recently, a major bug in Wikibase was introduced by yours truly [1]. It
happened when changes in Wikibase repo (aka Wikidata) transmitted to a
Wikibase client (aka all other wikis) while repo has the newer version of
mediawiki than the client. Any changes to the way repo transmits changes to
client must stay backward compatible for at least a minor release (=one
week). As you might guess, sometimes it's hard to test these cases.

The decision to prevent such problems in the future was to have one of our
test client wikis (that is connected to test.wikidata.org) kept back for
deployments for one day so we can have a test repo-client connection with
different mediawiki versions. You can read more in about reasoning in the
phabricator task: [2]

So starting from his week, test2wiki will get new releases a day later (in
