TechCom Radar, 2018-01-10

Daniel Kinzler-2
Hello all!

Here are the minutes from this week's meeting:

* Services team experimenting with Minikube for providing a Kubernetes based
development environment.

* RFC approved after last call: Migrate WMF production to PHP 7

* For dropping support for PHP 5.6 with MW 1.31, a few bits of code still need
to be fixed that are not compatible with PHP 7:

* Last Call: TechCom proposes to decline “MediaWiki Action API is a unique API
specification” because it does not offer an actionable solution to discuss and
does not address the issue of migrating existing client code.

* IRC discussion next week: MediaWiki platform architecture topics for the dev
summit. Please let use know what you think the most important topics for the
MediaWiki platform are, with a one to five year horizon. Discussion before the
meeting is encouraged, see <>

* Please also provide input on the other sessions planned for the Developer
Summit: <>.
Keep in mind that this year, the summit is about strategic direction, not about
concrete engineering issues.

* TechCom had a triage session. We went over 20 of about 100 RFCs in the
“backlog” and “under discussion” columns of the RFC board to check on the status.
