Hi ,

I spoke to Antonie last week and came to know that he had created a new
wiki in localhost, and run browser tests on it. He had done it for
CirrusSearch[1](I know it is failing, but I think I can fix it). I looked
into the job (2-3). I think we can do similar thing, only thing we need to
change would be LocalSettings.php for a new language, which can be done by
removing it and generating it from maintenance/install.php.

As I am changing environment variable LANGUAGE_SCREENSHOT_CODE, I can
create the LocalSettings.php with respect to new language and then run
browser tests. Let me know what you think about it.

I tried implementing it in my cloudbees, but I am not sure if I can run
services in jenkins of cloudbees. But I think it would be easy to do it in
Wikimedia CI[4], as most of it is already implemented. But I cannot see
option to create new job, as I can see in cloudbees. Am I missing anything?
