Wikimedia Release Engineering Team/MediaWiki on Kubernetes/Meeting notes/2021-03-24




TODOs from last time[edit]

  • Start thinking about deployment strategy for m8s, both for legacy deployments and the eventual k8s-only deployments
    • Not quite ready for a proposal but we'll be there soon
  • Dan: I'll be out on paternity leave in early May for a few weeks. Who wants to take over as lead for this meeting? Dancy will lead.


Giuseppe out the next two weeks. Dancy out next week.


Question from Giuseppe:

  • Does the pipelinelib build process ensure that the latest "latest" base images are used (i.e., always pull).?
    • Dan checked. Looks like docker build --pull is used.


  • We have an initial chart for MediaWiki to use in production - still amply to test
    • Would be nice to progressively add pieces to allow running a local dev wiki with that chart
  • All k8s clusters are now reinitialized and upgraded.
  • shellbox chart under review
