Wednesday January 4[edit]

  • AFTv5
    • Deployed yesterday's ClickTracking data format fix
    • Found out logrotate had been truncating the clicktracking log file every morning, destroying AFTv5 clicktracking data

    • Used ClickTracking to track bucketing on the live site for a little while, concluded that the bucketing is distributed correctly

    • Did some preliminary reorganization of the Gerrit hooks needed to make specialized lint checks for MediaWiki commits possible. Only half-finished because I don't know Python well enough (gerrit 1794)
  • ResourceLoader
    • Tested asynchronous script loading from the head in a bunch of browsers and found that all support it
      • But later, Timo discovered a regression in Opera. Will look into fixing that tomorrow
