2017-11-08[edit]

Callouts[edit]

  • No MW Train the week of the 20th due to Thanksgiving, SWATs will be open on Mon and Tuesday (Wednesday is “Friday” that week).
  • RelEng: Please port your browser tests to the nodejs framework. 7 repositories have not started yet (still in ruby, which is no longer maintained). task
  • Tidy replacement: if you are an editor on some wiki, please get the word out to your wikis to fix the high-priority linter issues. We want to get Tidy removed from the cluster sooner than later.A bunch of wikis (including mediawiki) no longer have Tidy, and a few 100 small wikis can get Tidy replaced based on stats about linter issues ( https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Parsing/Replacing_Tidy/Linter/Stats/2017-11-06#Wikis_with_zero_high-priority_errors ). But would be good to get some largish wikis moved over so we can identify any lingering problems sooner than later.
