fr-tech's detailed Roadmap
Rhythm and code freeze
We have a special yearly window of not deploying major changes to some critical systems starting in the fall, in preparation for the Big English drive. Game on again in mid-January, assuming we haven't emitted a puff of smoke in early December.
This code freeze gives our development an annual cadence, with each season seeing similar types and intensities of work, year-over-year. Any long-running FR-tech project should take this into account.

Installing the software stack
Much of our toolchain is provided by MediaWiki-Vagrant, here's how to provision and enjoy a new installation. Be aware that this requires about 2GB of memory and lots of processor. Please follow setup instructions at the main MediaWiki-Vagrant page above, but enable the following role before provisioning for the first time:
vagrant enable-role fundraising
Also note that the fundraising role assumes that the vagrant repo is in /vagrant and that drush is in /usr/local/bin/drush.
Assuming your box builds without error, visit http://payments.wiki.local.wmftest.net:8080/ and the wiki's main page will have links to help you get started. Please note that the wmftests.net subdomain is actually a wildcard DNS that resolves to 127.0.0.1, so if you are running vagrant on a different host than you're browsing from, or if you're offline, you'll need to add hosts entries yourself.
If you wish to forsake Vagrant and try to do it all the hard way, see Fundraising Tech/Donation Pipeline Setup
Running PHPUnit tests under vagrant
The fundraising role checks out a separate branch of mediawiki core into /vagrant/mediawiki-fr. Some slight of hand is required to run the tests from that directory and not the primary wiki. From the vagrant directory, do:
FIXME: not working.
vagrant ssh cd /vagrant/mediawiki-fr/tests/phpunit export MW_INSTALL_PATH=/vagrant/mediawiki-fr php phpunit.php --wiki paymentswiki --group DonationInterface
Testing queue operations under vagrant
Please see Fundraising tech/Queue testing.
You can find our engineering team on the #wikimedia-fundraising irc channel. Include "fr-tech" in your message to make sure we see it.
