  • Updates:
    • Additional work on issues
    • Upgraded express library in production (longstanding)
    • Parsoid Batching API extension now live in production -- preliminary tests using it to batch parsoid's api requests to the m/w api shows latency improvements; expect it to also lower load on the parsoid and mediawiki API cluster
    • Work in progress to deprecate parsoid's v1 API.
    • Work in progress to bring parsoid's API (v3) closer to restbase's api (to reduce the work needed in VRS in core to transform client requests to Parsoid or RESTBase urls). Once this is done, both v1 and v2 APIs will be deprecated and removed. Scott working with Alex (Krenair) and services teams to make this happen.
