Past Quarterly Goals - Final status update[edit]

Program 1: Outcome 5: Milestone 1: Develop and migrate to a JavaScript-based browser testing stack[edit]

Due: End of this quarter

Program 1: Outcome 5: Objective 1: Maintain existing shared Continuous Integration infrastructure[edit]

Goals
Draft requirements for a Kubernetes based solution for CI - task T183513
Migrate MediaWiki PHPUnit tests to Shipyard (docker-based CI) (~40% of Nodepool usage) - task T183512
Will be worked on after the long tail task T187797
Unify production and CI docker image build process - task T177276
Yes Done 01/15



Program 3: Outcome 1: Objective 2: Identify and find stewards for high-priority/high use code segment orphans[edit]

Due: End of quarter
task T174091

Made final edits to Stewardship model and update wiki pages.

Program 3: Outcome 2: Objective 2: Define and implement a process to regularly address technical debt across the Foundation[edit]

Due: End of quarter
task T174095

Added:

   *Engagement Model
   *Awareness campaign
   *Tech Debt/Code Reasouces

Program 3: Outcome 2: Objective 3: Promote and surface important technical debt topics at large gatherings of Wikimedia developers (e.g., DevSummit and Hackathon(s))[edit]

Due: End of next quarter

No activitiy

Program 6: Outcome 2: Objective 2: Set up a continuous integration and deployment pipeline[edit]

Due: End of this quarter
Keyword: SSD
phab project: https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/project/view/2453/
Goal:
Verify basic functionality of 'production' deployment and image (initially targeting mathoid):
Functional PoC within integration in the deployment-pipeline
Deploy to isolated k8s
  • Major improvements to Blubber this quarter for more secure permissions/ownership scheme and policies
  • Verified a working PoC of `helm test` against minikube outside of CI but:
  • Still majorly blocked on lack of functional minikube/k8s/helm within CI
  • We are not far off once unblocked
