Quaterly Goals for Q1[edit]

Pipeline: Move verify stage from Minikube to CI k8s namespace in production context[edit]

tracking task
  • I think we're close to done
  • helm test failing for CI namespace -- Alex fixed it all
    • we weren't able to hit the mathoid container since we don't run dns in k8s
    • EnvVar that had the IP addr of the mathoid container was available to use
    • New version of the chart was deployed, need to verify that's all we need

Code Health[edit]

  • T199253 - Investigate and propose record of origin (ROO) for deployed code (currently Developers/Maintainers page)
  • Perform existing Stewardship review process for Q1 cycle.
  • T199254 - Add test evaluation to post mortem review process.
  • Review existing e2e test coverage.
  • Define prioritization scheme.
  • Prioritize e2e testing gaps.
  • T199257 - make current unit testing coverage more visible by reporting out to Engineering Management.
  • T199259 - Platform and Search Platform teams are using TDM PoC
  • T199262 - Identify key Tech Debt areas
  • T199263 - Put in place Tech Debt management process for PEP
    • continued review of their existing tech debt.
  • T199261 - Define base Code Health metric set.
    • Starting the formation of the Code Health Metrics Working Group


Developer Productivity[edit]

  • Make a hire to create the capacity needed for this program.
  • Write and share a survey to measure developer satisfaction and areas for investment. - task T197635


Other work[edit]

Selenium[edit]

  • Q1 goals task: T198389 Q1 Selenium framework improvements
    • No progess, worked on train incident reports

Gerrit =[edit]

  • NOTE: Not included in DC switchover
  • Paladox wants to change default UI
    • Greg to verify with paladox
  • User plugin? thcipriani/mukunda: wanna pair

Phabricator =[edit]

  • NOTE: Not included in DC switchover
  • Finished antivandalism notifications (via phabricator notification feed) but not in time for deployment last week. Will deploy on Wednesday this week.
  • That should unblock us turning off the account approval queue and account auto-locking when the vandalism filter is triggered.

Jenkins[edit]

  • Changed workspacesDir with dan last week

QA[edit]

  • Had first of two QA Discussion sessions. Good discussion so far. Driver at this point is the perceived need for more manual testers. But they are willing to approach the QA topic more hollistically.
