Thanks Kaldari & Joaquin! Tomorrow, I'm planning on making a shell script that compares head to whatever branch and then makes it pretty with links.  Ideally, copy / paste format into a wiki page.

Thanks for the info Rob!

I recommend you have a pass at the mobile frontend release changelog, there's cool info there on generating changelogs. I just added a couple of new comments:

You can create prettier log lists with something like:
git log --pretty=format:'%Cblue%h %Cgreen%cd %Cred%cr %Creset%s' --date=short -20

(hat tip to Joaquin for telling me this trick originally)

Here is a crude list of the changes that went out today when rolled out to 1.26wmf3.  I've manually created this list from the difference in what was previously deployed on and what is live now.   There must be an easier way to create this list as I know one similar to it is created during the deployment branch cuts.   In the future I would like to send out a prettier version with links to bug tasks and change ids.

Hello Gatherlings and other folks who may or may not be interested,

Today Gather's 1.26wmf3 deployment branch was updated to master and deployed to wikis running 1.26wmf3.   Tomorrow is riding the deployment train and all wikis will be updated to wmf3 [1]  So our latest changes will be reflected then.

The reason we cannot deploy master to wmf2 today is because of the API change [2].  This change is not backwards compatible, therefore cherry-picking it to wmf2 would in no doubt have had unforeseen complications with other extensions / core components on wmf2 deployment branch.

Core changes like this with massive deprecations / non-backwards compatibility while rare, is a battle we face when doing weekly updates.
