  • T157050 selenium-Wikibase Jenkins job fails with MediawikiApi::ApiError for 7 days in a row

    • Done, but waiting for T139740.
  • T152963 Increase in failures caused by Saucelabs
    • Looks like the way to go is to rerun failed tests.
  • T152432 Make it possible to execute tests as a specific (new) MediaWiki user on beta cluster
    • Done.
  • T158074 Update Ruby tests to Selenium 3
    • The gem is updated, waiting for review. Running tests in repositories to check if anything is broken.
  • T139740 Port Selenium tests from Ruby to Node.js
    • Looks like webdriverio is the way to go. Working on timeline of replacing ruby tests with node.
