This is a summary of this week's deployment of the 1.37.0-wmf.1 branch
of MediaWiki and its extensions (also known as "the train"). The
primary person in charge this week is Jeena Huneidi, with Dan Duvall
as backup, both from the Release Engineering team.
The summary task for this week is
This was the first week of the 1.37.0 series. The 1.36.0 release is
being made separately, and our sites are moving on to run weekly
releases of the new series. It's not a momentous change. We start a
series couple of times a year. The version number changes, but
otherwise the changes this week are fairly mundane and usual.
(There's no train deployment next week, due to a holiday on Thursday.)
The new version is running all sites. There were a total of three
blocker reported and resolved:
- T279008 - mw-parser-output now clears after block, which is a
noticeable change for Category pages where infoboxes used to render
floated alongside the automatic content
- T279113 - Unable to parse title at new Title in Special:MediaSearch
- T280082 - Wikimedia\Rdbms\DBQueryError: Error 1146: Table
'mediawikiwiki.discussiontools_subscription' doesn't exist
As usual, a whole bunch of people helped to find, triage, analyze,
fix, or work around problems this. Release Engineering thanks
everyone, without help we wouldn't be able to deploy MediaWiki.

Have a good weekend. Be well. Be safe.
