How this works

  • Any serious bugs affecting wmf.8 should be added as subtasks beneath this one.
  • Any open subtask(s) block the train from moving forward. This means no further deployments until the blockers are resolved.
  • If something is serious enough to warrant a rollback then you should bring it to the attention of deployers on the #wikimedia-operations IRC channel.
  • If you have a risky change in this week's train add a comment to this task using the Risky patch template
  • For more info about deployment blockers, see Holding the train.

This train is a little odd due to Thanksgiving. It will go to group0 on Tuesday 2019-11-26, group1 on 2019-12-04 (the following Wednesday), and group2/all wikis on 2019-12-05 (the following Thursday).

Cutting branch using:

cd ~/release/make-release
./ --core --core-bundle wmf_core --bundle wmf_branch --branchpoint HEAD --core-version 1.35.0-wmf.8  wmf/1.35.0-wmf.8

An update to this: Saw some odd behavior from, fell back to standard process.

Noting here that wmf.8 is deployed to all wikis. There's still logspam proceeding from T240248, but we've made a decision that keeping wmf.8 in production and hoping for / focusing on a resolution to those issues in wmf.10 is lower risk than rolling back to wmf.5 and proceeding directly from there to wmf.10.
