Preparing the next Lino Welfare Eupen release

I worked on #3034. This time only on their production server. I reviewed their initdb_from_prod.sh and restore2preview.py scripts and ran them.

A strange thing I observed: some media files are not group readable. I have no idea how they do this. Here is an example:

$ go prod
$ cd media
$ find uploads ! -perm /g=w
uploads/2019/03/20190218_112921.jpg
uploads/2019/03/Wentgens_Wohnraum_2.jpg

$ ll uploads/2019/03/*.jpg
-rw-rw-r-- 1 www-data www-data 2230262 Mar 28 15:37 uploads/2019/03/20190218_112908.jpg
-rw------- 1 www-data www-data 3017734 Mar 28 15:38 uploads/2019/03/20190218_112921.jpg
-rw-rw-r-- 1 www-data www-data  596910 Mar  8 14:27 uploads/2019/03/Screenshot_20181024-123607_Samsung_Internet.jpg
-rw-rw-r-- 1 www-data www-data 2206413 Mar 22 11:53 uploads/2019/03/Wentgens.jpg
-rw------- 1 www-data www-data 2800880 Mar 22 11:55 uploads/2019/03/Wentgens_Wohnraum_2.jpg

I can “fix” this by saying:

$ sudo find uploads ! -perm /g=w -exec chmod g+w '{}' +
$ sudo find uploads ! -perm /g=r -exec chmod g+r '{}' +

But of course that does not eliminate the reason of the problem (there will be more such files in the future).

I adapted their settings.py to say lino_weleup.settings instead of lino_welfare.eupen.settings.

TODO: Continue manual migrations in the restore2preview.py script. I stopped because I prefer to not run these processes during their work day.
