Team Business[edit]

Team Workboard[edit]

Scrum of Scrums[edit]

  • Triage existing tasks
    • Create workboard?
  • Bigger goal of establishing unit-test coverage

Browser tests[edit]

  • Finalizing environment abstraction layer
    • Further testing by refactoring some advanced scenarios (in Flow, CentralAuth, Echo)
    • Team review tomorrow
    • Merging later this week
  • all VE tests are broken. I'll walk Rummana through fixing them later today.
  • Writing a new test for vFlow since they marked the ticket High and haven't done it themselves. It'll be fast.
  • Refactoring MMV and UW tests as their UIs get the OOJS treatment, working mostly with Gilles and a little with Mark. Trying to get rid of the sleeps and I'm finding some issues with how Chrome treats the z-axis in our UIs. I want to pair with Zeljko on this later.

Continuous Integration[edit]

  • Antoine getting HHVM job
    • manual run of them all, assess status of the builds, if only a few broken, enable it everywhere
  • Gearman/Zuul/Jenkins still deadlocking from time to time for random reasons :-\ We have new labs servers! If you collect a rough count of how many new instances you need, I'll lift the quotas.
