Refactor phabricator module in puppet to remove git tag pinning behavior https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T125851
(resolved) scap::target should use scap's debian package instead of trebuchet https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T127215

Q3 goal/project check-in[edit]

Reduce CI Wait time[edit]

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

Migrate services CI jobs to node 4.3 -> https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T126991

Which is to run npm jobs for services on Nodepool instances.

3 out of 6 migrated mathoid/deploy fails for unknown reason => Math folks graphoid blocked on puppet work => ops || services parsoid have to refined the jobs that are run => Me


I will start migrating npm jobs to Nodepool this week in a cowboy way (ie during European mornings).

  • AQS is very close to moving to Scap3
  • Decided on first steps
    • Depool proxies
    • Fanout git deploys
  • Probably need to touch binary deployment

Other Work[edit]

Beta cluster / ORES[edit]

wikitech-l has an announcement about ORES (revision scoring) to be pushed to production. I have asked about the beta cluster and we have a task to which I have made a sale speech:

 https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T127661

I can't reasonably support them. It is a nice project half volunteer driven and with Aaron Halfaker involved for which I have a huge respect.

It is probably a nice project to step in and help, specially if you are

looking to interact with volunteers.
