Hi, what would you like to see in gerrit or improved? I've been working been working on developing a plugin that pull's in zuul's status into PolyGerrit. See the running demo at https://imgur.com/a/uBk2oxQ . Im also planning on adding "recheck" and "check experimental" as buttons to PolyGerrit's ui to improve CI. This will help new users who can recheck (and existing users that either forgot they can type this or haven't learned yet).
Note that i cannot promise that anything suggested in this thread will be worked on, but i can try my best.
See tasks https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T214068 and https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T214631 .
This is just another small reminder that, because the servers which host
tiles.wmflabs.org and wma.wmflabs.org (wikiminiatlas) and overpass-wiki
run on a version of the OS (Ubuntu Trusty) that is no longer supported (and
hasn't been available for new instances since november 2017).
These services need maintainers and support by community members in order
to keep them alive after dec 18th (after which wmflabs will phase out those
versions) and before the EOL of early 2019 of the OS. Unfortunately it
seems no one is stepping up so far to convert these machines.
This issue is tracked at https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T204506
As I was curious, I looked around on the tile server a bit and used what I
could find to update
This is all the information that I could gather, but i'm FAR from sure if
that is complete information and if I would break anything with a rebuild
basing myself on that info, so any information on missing elements etc.
would be appreciated. I've not gotten around to looking at wikiminiatlas.
If the services are not rebuild then likely they will just disappear at
some point for all layer variants. This includes the mapnik, black and
white, hill shading, hike bike layers. As I have no idea how many users of
these services there are, it is hard to say what the effect of that would
Currently, there's a patch under review  to enable a PHP sniff which
would detect so called "Pointless conditionals". These are conditionals
(if...else or ternary) where both branches only assign or return a boolean
value, and which could potentially one-lined using the if condition. T

It's Thursday :)
I wanted to say thank you this week to Zoranzoki21 and Matěj Suchánek
for jumping on the phan migration and helping with upgrading
extensions to take advantage of newer static analysis tools.

The Release Engineering team has started a working group to discuss
and consider our future continuous integration tooling. Please help!
The RelEng team is working with SRE to build a continuous delivery and
deployment pipeline, as well as changing production to run things in
containers under Kubernetes. We aim to improve the process of making
changes to software behind our various sites by making it take less
effort, happen faster, be less risky, and as automated as possible.
The developers will have a better development experience, be more
empowered, and more productive.
Wikimedia has had a CI system for many years now, but is based on
versions of tools that are reaching the end of their useful life.
Those tools need to be upgraded, and this will probably require
further changes due to how the new versions function. This is a good
point to consider what tools and functionality we need and want.
The working group is tasked to consider the needs and wants, and
evaluate the available options, and make a recommendation of what to
use in the future. The deadline is March 25. The work is being
documented at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Release_Engineering_Team/CI_Future…
and we're currently collecting requirements and candidates to
We would welcome any feedback on those! Via IRC (#wikimedia-pipeline),
on the talk page of the working group's wiki page above, or as a
comment to the blog post below. Or as a reply to this email.
1.33.0-wmf.19 has been deployed to group0. Tonight when promoting group1
I encountered Wikibase exceptions on commonswiki for requests reaching
the File: namespace:
Postcondition failed: Namespace for entity type property must be defined!
I promptly rolled back group1.
The task is https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T217285 I will reach out
to Wikibase developers on Thursday European morning.
