Other Work[edit]

  • Move browser test alerts to responsible teams' channels from -releng - https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T89375
    • Could look at sending them emails as well
  • Let's make a schedule for analyzing browser test failures in Jenkins. Chris and Rummana to work on this today in our regular pairing session.
  • Let's keep merging EAL stuff into repos.
  • MultiMedia team has been needing browser test support in recent times, will probably continue to need it for some time.
  • Chris continues to hack on process description while meeting f2f with Arthur/TPG to keep things reasonable. RelEng and TPG have a lot in common, we need to keep exploiting that and not go different directions.
  • Working on voting jobs for mw-vagrant unit and acceptance tests
  • Polishing mw-selenium rubocop config/fixes for 1.0.0 release
  • Working on mockups for browser test dashboard
  • MediaWiki core handling of sqlite is causing stability issues. This is making a singificant number of builds fail. Tim Starling and Aaron getting involved to help out. https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T89180
