Quaterly Goals for Q1[edit]

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

tracking task
  • Done

Code Health[edit]

  • T199253 - Investigate and propose record of origin (ROO) for deployed code (currently Developers/Maintainers page)
    • talked to Tyler a bit about this. Also need to hook up with SRE (and other stakeholders). This appears to be tightly coupled with the review queue process.
  • Perform existing Stewardship review process for Q1 cycle.
    • no reviews requested at the moment. Corey requested to meet with me today to discuss finding homes for some the platform code.
  • 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.
    • worked on creating a template for the first montly report. Actually thinking that this will be part of a broader Code Health monthly newsletter.
  • 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
  • T199261 - Define base Code Health metric set.
    • scheduled WG kickoff meeting (tomorrow)


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]

Gerrit[edit]

Phabricator[edit]

  • Nothing significant to note this week.

Jenkins[edit]

  • Statsd publisher -- still going? still needed?
    • Either needs to be expanded to collect more data or ditched
    • Doesn't allow for metadata so it's harder to narrow down stats to particular segments
    • In the end, it was a lot easier to pull stats from the Jenkins JSON API, but Jenkins only keeps 30 days worth of build data around
    • Can we simply extend the Jenkins retention period?

QA[edit]

  • all quiet - no additional discussions have occurred since the initial barrage.
