Scrum of Scrums[edit]

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/maniphest/query/iYosD4_9SSPW/#R Chris will emphasize:

Vagrant[edit]

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/627/

  • Writing short survey summary; will send out today/tomorrow
  • Presentation went well (agreed :) )

Browser tests[edit]

https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/630/

  • Refactoring/untangling MobileFrontend browser test repo (updating to RSpec3 along the way)
  • Making rubocop fixes
  • Training Rummana (ongoing)
    • 2x/week pending interruptions
  • Considering a tech talk. http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Project:Calendar/How_to_schedule_an_event/TechTalks (all this refactoring makes me want to do a presentation about "Do's and Dont's for Browser Tests")
  • Finishing up Env Abs Layer
  • Patch to avoid hitting rubygems: https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/176818/
    • We keep hitting rubygems, which suffered from a DDoS on Monday thus causing browser tests to fail early
    • Discussion about providing bundler via Debian package (Dan, Antoine). TLDR: we gave up attempting to backport it
  • VisualEditor could use a few more tests
