Scrum of scrums/2014-06-25
W0 + Partners
- #2 ESI / GIFification - blocked on W0 team itself, as nested W0 configuration support is being built
- #57 Firefox OS Exploration - card can probably be closed; Ajax page loading is going away in MobileFrontend as we understand; the Partnerships/Partners team will be looking at Firefox OS work for the upcoming FY - possibly a search widget, possibly finding a way to sandbox wildcarded domain patterns to just use the mobile website
- #121 Nested W0 Configuratons - new card created for in-progress work on supporting nexted configurations
- #122 Thumbnail Downsampling - new card created for in-progress work on downsampling thumbnails to reduce bandwidth usage
- Now that we have browser tests in /mediawiki/core, I want to retire the /qa/browsertest repo, as it no longer serves a purpose.
- I have three orphan tests for extensions in /qa/browsertests, for AFTv5, PageTriage, and Math.
- I ported them all to their extension repos, but I am uncomfortable creating whole new directories without a least a +1 on the patches. I could use some help getting +1 or +2 on these:
- Math: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/141472/
- PageTriage: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/141578/
- AFTv5: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/141476/
(Actually I am OK with merging the one for AFTv5 as that is only for historical/documentation purposes, but a +1 or +2 there would still be nice)
