Monthly reflection on accomplishments - August '19 edition[edit]

Add as you have them!


Incoming/Needs attention[edit]

  • https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T231198 - Wikibase tests are exceptionally slow as of this weekend
  • https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T231200 - SRE unhappy that there aren't enough executors for their code to get tested promptly
    • Do the two above have the same cause ?
      • Ish. The "problem" is "bad tests make the world slow" Let's move Wikibase to its own sad queue ? :) We can't (because MW is a monolith). Boo.
    • TODO thcipriani: create an instance to run puppet tests dedicated
  • https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T231183 - LocalisationCache issues; does this block the train in any way?
    • Scap shells out to maintentance scripts to rebuild l10n cache, internally it rebuilds cdb files from json
      • Added as a train blocker.
