Get rid of Zend 5.5 tests for wmf branches
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Once there are no more Zend PHP machines running in Wikimedia production there is no need to trigger the Zend-based tests for wmf branches.

With the recent introduction of MySQL the PHPUnit ones went from 6 to more than 10 minutes which is slowing down merges for no reason (T93556).

Um, Wikimedia most certainly still uses Zend PHP, see T84842 for example.

In T118932: RfC: Raise MediaWiki's PHP version requirement to 5.5 and update coding standards it looks like we're considering bumping the MediaWiki PHP version requirement to PHP 5.5, while HHVM currently seems to be aiming at 5.6. In the past it has been useful that unit tests are also run with something like our minimum target version of PHP to help avoid breaking compatibility.

Yep, this task is just about tests on the wmf deployment branches.

Yup this specific task is about removing the Zend based Jenkins jobs whenever the Wikimedia infrastructure has been fully migrated to HHVM. At this point we will no more care about Zend and that will speed up gate-and-submit for wmf branches.

I should show up at the RFC meeting tonight for T118932 .

@ori confirmed on T86081 that Zend 5.3 is gone:

This task is a blocker for getting rid of Zend 5.3 Jenkins jobs for WMF branches and master branches deployed on Wikimedia infra ( T94149 ).

There is still three blockers, but they don't seem to have Zend 5.3 running still:

T98813: Move wikitech (silver) to HHVM
T94277: Convert snapshot hosts to use HHVM and trusty
T86096: Switch HAT appservers to trusty's ICU (or newer)

Can subscribers to this task please confirm the three task above are no more for migrating out of Zend 5.3? If nothing left running Zend 5.3 we will get rid of the related Jenkins jobs.

Yes, confirmed. Wikitech and the snapshot hosts are running 5.5.9, and T86096 is blocked by the migration, not blocking it.

So we can filter out Zend based jobs for wmf branches.

Test must remain until HHVM roll out is complete, not the other way around.

So triggering the PHP5 jobs might cover the corner case of code being run as maintenance script and we have a lot of it: job runners, getting all wikis configuration etc.

Emphasis is on might. Job runners don't run via runJobs anymore, it's a loop to the RPC endpoint now. I think the benefit is very minor. Let's just drop them

So we are going to remove Zend for wmf branches in the interest of lowering load on CI and speed up feedback/merge for wmf branch.

Talked about it again during the release engineering meeting. We believe that although maintenance script are still using Zend php5.5, running tests on every single patch is unlikely to catch any issue and thus have little purpose beside slowing down merges.

Change 344643 abandoned by Hashar:
wmf branches: drop mediawiki-core-phpcs-trusty

Can be done with a generic rule .*php55.* .

Wikitech on silver still runs Zend php 5.5 :(

Stalled, pending completion of Zend -> HHVM migration.

Should this be declined due to T176370?

Yeh, one should be filled for getting rid of the hhvm tests.

That is to remove the Zend 5.5 based jobs. That is pending on Stop forcing php5 in mwscript

It's blocked on more than that - we still use PHP 5.5 for dumps and wikitech (silver).

This should be the last thing to happen in the chain of this tasks' parent (T190547), and should not happen until after Wikimedia no longer runs PHP5 with MediaWiki anywhere in production.
