Standup![edit]

Antoine[edit]

  • What I plan to do this week

    • I wrote the first draft about testing extensions. It is still too rough to be shared, hoping to feel better to enhance it
    • operations/dns repository has a test running on Jessie which no more has the latest version of our DNS server (gdnsd). We would want to migrate to a Docker container.
    • I got DonationInterface tests to pass with Quibble, they need to update the composer merge plugin and their mediawiki/vendor branch. I have piked Ejegg about it but have to push harder.
    • Wikibase, gotta audit tests run with Quibble and the ones run by the old jobs. If that matches, we can drop the old jobs (they run on Nodepool).
