Update Portals page on Beta to reflect head of master branch
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Because the portals repository is a submodule in mediawiki-config, the submodule is pegged to whatever commit is specified by the parent repository ( and updated by commits like this). This means that https://www.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/ only reflects the change that happens right before a deployment, when mediawiki-config is updated.

It would be more useful if https://www.wikipedia.beta.wmflabs.org/ was a reflection of the head of the portals master branch.

This can be achieved by running git submodule update --remote portals in the wikimedia-config repo.

Hi @hashar - when you have time, can you take a look at this? Thanks!

I have cherry picked https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/394555/ on the puppet master. So tentatively the portals submodule will be updated to the tip of the master branch.
