Below the cut
CI+release for Apps (iOS and Android)
Staging (resurrect?)
  • goal: make a staging cluster that is "easily" reproducible
Chad +1
Browser Test dashboard / per team test history (resurrect?)
  • This is pretty much done
  • It could use incremental improvements (link to create new phab task, scenario 'pulse') but these don't need team-wide priority
Dan
Encourage developers to increase code coverage
  • in conjunction with TPG, this was a call out from the previous Team Health Check surveys
  • (I might have the wrong task for this, but it has the right name ;) )
  • Not sure this should be about increasing coverage specifically but about improving tooling and practices
Dan +1
Organizing release branches and SWAT requests in Phabricator / releeph..
The new faster deployment cadence
  • I (Mukunda) guess the goal here is to continue releasing fast without breaking everything constantly and catastrophically. So essentially more testing and streamlining the deployments. (See releeph)
