Discovery/Status updates/2017-09-25


This is the weekly update for the week starting 2017-09-25



  • Erik manually speed up the process of moving results (categories) in-between indexes in response to a bug filed for the same search result listed twice in the same query (task T176683), however, while this type of move is underway, because there are tens of millions of changes, there will be duplicates that show up.
  • Erik also fixed a bug where the <span> tags were being 'eaten' in the highlighted search preview output (task T173172)
  • Gehel fixed an issue that was found during the last cluster restart, when the cluster failed to recover properly, by tuning the elasticsearch recovery settings (task T176409)
  • David and Gehel fixed an issue where the api feature logs were not being sent to both eqiad and codfw clusters (task T176430)
  • David finished up the large amount of work needed to be done to release the 1.0 version of the ltr (learn to rank) plugin (task T175896)
