mediawiki-extensions-hhvm should run for all covered extensions (eg. Flow)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


In general, when extension A depends on extension B, and A runs the mediawiki-extensions-hhvm job but B doesn't, B could break something HHVM-specific without noticing, that then causes A's jobs to fail. This is what caused T91967: Flow doesn't run the HHVM tests, but Thanks and VE do.

In general I would argue that this situation shouldn't be allowed to exist: if A depends on B, either both or neither should run the HHVM tests.

I don't think this is actually HHVM-specific. I think the issue is that the HHVM runs a broader suite of tests (more repos). However, the point still holds.

Verified via recheck on

It was basically already set up that way, but Flow got left out somehow when the list was last synchronised.
