2014-03-18[edit]

Yesterday
  • Came up with an alternative suggestion for performance measurement, based on automatically comparing to the file page. Sent by email
  • Fixed the "select all on focus" issue on Share & Embed
  • Got confirmation that the CORS header fix worked, but sampling rate is really making data collection slow at the moment. There was only one hit since yesterday. Interestingly, it was a varnish miss and took 2.5 seconds, as we're used to experiencing. I've filed a changeset to increase the sampling rate, but we should remember to lower it for pilot sites.
  • Found a bug in the SQL used for the performance graph, emailed Mark about it with a suggested fix
Today
  • 1-on-1 with RobLa
  • Team retrospective
  • Keep helping towards Share & Embed merge
  • File an rt request to get access to stat1


2014-03-17[edit]

Yesterday
Today

  • Keep helping towards Share & Embed merge


2014-03-14[edit]

Yesterday
  • Iteration planning meeting
  • Desperately trying to get access to stat1001 so that I can work on the performance dashboard. Analytics team is pointing me to one of their members who only comes back on Monday or to ops, but according to ops that's not necessary.
  • Reviewed and tweaked Pau's CSS animation changeset for the metadata panel
  • Reviewed TonyThomas' revived "click on backdrop to close the lightbox" changeset. Since we've already brought it up during our meetings and purposefully rejected that feature, I directed him to making a gadget that achieves the same functionality for people who like it.
  • Improved the UI of the share & embed dialog to get closer to matching the mockup
Today
  • Performance dashboard

2014-03-04[edit]

Yesterday
  • Did #278 (get rid of global viewer instance) which solved issues experienced by Gergo in #178 (consolidating multilightbox and lightboxinterface)
  • Discussed jenkins gotchas with Antoine, which we'll document when I come back. The latest I ran into is that jenkins runs qunit tests on the changeset automerged to the latest master, which is a different state than you have locally when you "git review -d" the changeset. Thus, you can end up with the tests working locally but failing on jenkins, because the automerge causes changes that are incompatible on an application level. The workaround is rebasing to master when you encounter the situation, which brings you to the same state as jenkins and should make the qunit errors start happening locally.
  • Contributed to this TeamPractices discussion: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Project_management_tools/Review/Options which might determine what tools the foundation uses in the future.
Today
  • I'm off until further notice, I'll let you know ASAP when I know I'll be able to do a work day

  • Wrote a fix for #274 (write a test to check that events are left untrapped)
  • Did #232 (check CORS double-load behavior in all browsers) and wrote a fix for the issues in IE6 and IE11
Today
  • Contribute to #54 and #198 if analytics gives me access
  • Fish for more "must have" cards from the current release like yesterday if the above doesn't happen
