Q2 goal/project check-in[edit]

Future of CI plan[edit]

Determine future composition of the CI infrastructure with a plan on how to get there without disrupting expected services and performance.
  • Meeting scheduled with Mark, Faidon, Chase, Antione, Dan, Tyler, and Greg for December 8th.
  • Tangentially related: CI staging + contint2001 are things
    • Would like to spend some time this week getting CI-Staging project setup -- allows me (tyler) to help with contint2001 more
  • Experimental Docker based instance up and running
    • Need help on figuring out NPM (and other package) caching

Migrate MediaWiki deploys to scap3 (part 1)[edit]

Use a unified git repo for MW deploys[edit]

  • Bug with scap 3.3.1 (old unused feature) found in beta.
  • Will probably land fixes, bump version, and finally get a new version (3.4.0 -- as antoine pointed out)
  • Want to land Flatten MedaWiki deploy into a single git repo this week
    • Watch on beta cluster over the holiday
    • cut new release and push to production after

Assess new directory structure and how it will interplay with MW[edit]

Interplay with MW should be minimal at this point.

When we move to either:

  • git transport
  • rsync of the .git directory

Space becomes a concern; however, git already optimizes for this use-case; it would take a lot of changes before the space impact becomes untenable.

History outweighs the benefits.

Stretch goal: Replace rsync with git syncing[edit]

Nope. not this quarter.

Release MediaWiki 1.28[edit]

  • almost....
