    • https://secure.phabricator.com/D17384
    • Learned a lot and got a lot of great feedback from Evan as usual.
    • Will be able to handle elasticsearch failover across data centers as well as load balancing between multiple search services.
  • Also making repositories searchable: https://secure.phabricator.com/D17300

    • This isn't new this week but I think I forgot to mention it previously
