This looks like a "must have" in T155601: Stabilizing Interactive Products to me.

@Deskana : I agree. I'll leave it to you to add it there, and to set the priority of this task.

There is some documentation that exists for deploying Node 6 services which @MaxSem and @EBjune as shown, which is nice. There are some problems with dependencies here that will need to be resolved; a repo was forked and not upstreamed. We're hoping that we can get that cleaned up. Erika will investigate further.

Deskana moved this task from To-do to In progress on the Maps-Sprint board.Feb 13 2017, 7:51 PM
Deskana added a subscriber: Pnorman.

Work that @Pnorman is doing will also feed in to this documentation.

@EBjune Has there been any movement on this yet?

A deployment page has been started by @MaxSem on

Great! The acceptance criteria here would be something like "The page is detailed enough that anyone new to maps, but experienced with Wikimedia tech, could deploy the maps service". I'm not an engineer so I have no way of determining when we've met that. I'll rely on you all to tell me. :-)
