   EL: events that are too long are not being sent as varnish (not varnishncsa) cannot process them:
   Issues with ganglia setup in labs and puppet are resolved, they were preventing us from running puppet in our instances.
   Webrequest tables in hadoop /hive now include processed user agents and parsed x-nalytics fields for easy querying
   Working on usage of scala/spark on the cluster
   VE data coming in for analysis, still gathering data

Will do:

   More spark/scala setup on cluster
   VE analysis of incoming Eventlogging data
   Working on getting metrics for mobile sessions for apps
   waiting on CR of the last-access-cookie changes on varnish:


  • What has your team done since we last met?
    • rolled out new header design (not finished yet)
    • further work towards getting usage tracking in shape for rollout


  • Android app update went live, iOS update coming soon

Mobile Web[edit]

Added documentation for client-side HTML templating in core (mustache) - Gather (user article lists) will be turned on on English Wikipedia today
