Train Deploy Conductor[edit]

FYI: I've created a "blockers" task for the upcoming wmf.XX branches, good idea? bad idea? almost good idea?

Team has consensus that the blocker tasks are useful.

Week of ...

  • Feb 1: Antoine with Dan pairing
  • Feb 8: Antoine
  • Feb 15: Antoine
  • Feb 22: Chad
  • Feb 29: Chad
  • Mar 7: Mukunda
  • Mar 14: Mukunda
  • Mar 21: Tyler

Other Team Business[edit]

  • Scrum of Scrums rotation
    • Tyler the next couple/few weeks
  • CI point person rotation?
    • Antoine: maybe first levelup people
    • also complete the nodepool migration to make it easier to understand
    • No hurries for now, reassess next week
  • FTE/time allotment for budget

Project 1: We will maintain and improve our deployment/release process by switching to a long-lived production branching technique and incorporating the feature set of scap3 into our MediaWiki deploys. Project 2: The pain and slowness in setting up new projects within our Continuous Integration (CI) environment is strongly felt by all. We will migrate our CI configuration from a central repository owned by a few people to project-specific repos owned by the project owners themselves.

Q3 goal/project check-in[edit]

Reduce CI Wait time[edit]

KPI: https://grafana.wikimedia.org/dashboard/db/releng-kpis?panelId=2&fullscreen

Kunal patching up to support Zend 5.3 / 5.5 / hhvm in parallel - :) Jan looking at running MediaWiki core support for 'composer test' Antoine migrating services to nodejs 4.2 and then other repos

MediaWiki --testsuite extensions runs test from all extensions. Usually not needed when the patch is made against an extension. No task filled yet.

Zend 5.3 is gone from Wikimedia cluster

    • gotta delete php53 jobs from wmf branch, hhvm is enough
    • should help SWAT merge times

Dan/Zeljko mediawiki_selenium 1.6.5 More repos need to have browser tests on patch proposal?

  • job is mwext-mw-selenium
