Engineering Community Team/Meetings/2011-10-04


  • 1.18 release -- communication TODOs. Planning to deploy to all the wikis TODAY, 4pm SF time, 2300UTC!
   technotice to link to from CentralNotice
       landing page is ready, Guillaume said
   tweet something - Guillaume
   wikitech-ambassadors list mail - Guillaume  &  Rob to coordinate later
   a few bugs are currently listed as blockers for 1.18 and should not be.  Rob to figure out some other way to communicate "keep an eye on this." tablesorting, & a db corruption issue that is probably very minor.
