https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/402455/
* Blocking:
* Updates:
** Had originally planned to replace Tidy on an additional 200+ wikis
including 4 large/medium wikis today (Jan 31). (
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T185945,
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T184656 ) But, this has been postponed to
Feb 6 because this week is a no M/W train, no SWAT week.
** Would appreciate DBA input on
https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T173943#3933570 .. Kunal has added the
#DBA phab tag already and so this SoS notification is just an FYI.
** Question to everyone: Every once in a while, Parsoid makes changes that
requires downstream clients to update / approve changes. Longer-term, once
Parsoid HTML is used for everything, we have a formal content-negotiation
process that includes content versioning and version headers, but for now,
when our clients are all internal and the contention negotiation support is
not yet in place in the Parsoid + RESTBase stack, something quicker and
simpler for faster change deployment is what we need. We have followed a
combo of gerrit / phab / irc / email / SoS for this so far, but suggestions
welcome for of how best to get everyone's attention and action in a timely
fashion. Or is our combo process the best way to make this happen?
