Example Alison Merge review phab:tag/Documentation Early stages of development. Yes Done --Admin user 09:56, 14 February 2012 (UTC)
mediawiki/skins/Cavendish Jack Phoenix Merge review phab:tag/Other-skins Please import this from GitHub, as per this conversation. (If it's not too much of a hassle to rewrite the author of commits made by "root" since 1 November 2020 to me, that'd be great, but definitely just a bonus rather than anything else. :-) Thanks in advance! --Jack Phoenix (Contact) 21:46, 30 December 2021 (UTC) LGTM. But since the repo is in DaSchTour's GitHub, I've reached out to DaSchTour if DaSchTour is ok with the import. --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 11:11, 31 December 2021 (UTC)
I did not hear from DaSchTour, so I imported the repo and rewrote the recent commits by root to your name. Note though that there is a 2.5.0 tag on one of the commits from root. I did not want to move/rewrite that. If you want that moved as well let me know. --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 09:41, 13 January 2022 (UTC)

mediawiki/extensions/VueTest Eric Gardner Merge review Requesting a new Gerrit repo for the "VueTest" MW extension that the Design System Team has been using to test Vue and Codex features inside of a MediaWiki environment. This will be used for testing and QA purposes, but will never be deployed to production on a real wiki. Currently code lives here [[1]]; moving this into Gerrit will make it easier to accept patches from other developers, run tests in MW CI, etc. --EGardner (WMF) (talk) 21:21, 28 February 2022 (UTC) Yes Done Created as mediawiki/extensions/VueTest

operations/debs/istio elukey Merge review (preferred) - We don't have a specific Phabricator tag, Istio is a core k8s component that will be maintained by SRE. We are trying to consolidate istio-related packages (like operations/deb/istioctl) in one place, like it was done for a similar component (operations/debs/calico). Thanks in advance!

operations/software/mediabackups Jcrespo Merge review #media-backups Initially we wanted to deploy all code related to WMF backups on the operations/software/wmfbackups repo, but because of limitations of how packaging works and how WMF ci works, it is easier to not mix self-contained projects. This will be used to hold the multimedia (swift, user-uploaded) backups code. It can be created empty and has to inherit the usual ldap ops permissions from that subranch. Thank you! --JCrespo (WMF) (talk) 09:58, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

Incomplete Partially done Created fully empty as operations/software/mediabackups

GitHub mirror is still missing, as GitHub is facing a partial outage right now and does not allow to create repos. I'll create the GitHub repo in the next days once the outage is over. --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 15:02, 17 March 2022 (UTC)

generated-data-platform/datasets/image-suggestions eevans Merge review Phabricator ticket: A data access service for Image Suggestions; Initial code can be imported from --EEvans (WMF) (talk) 20:48, 29 March 2022 (UTC) @EEvans (WMF): I'm thinking about where to best put this in our Gerrit hierarchy. Since you wrote that it will be a data access service ... It's not a service directly used by MediaWiki (and weuld hence fit under mediawiki/services or is it? I see that there is a whole generated-data-platform hierarchy in our GitLab. Will the other repos there migrate over to Gerrit as well and we should prepare for that by using the full generated-data-platform/datasets/image-suggestions? I could not find any comparable repo in our Gerrit, are you aware of any? Or should we just use the full name from GitLab and not care because we're migrating to GitLab at some point anyways? --QChrisNonWMF (talk) 13:35, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
Correct @QChrisNonWMF: , it's not a service used by MediaWiki (read: shouldn't exist under mediawiki/services). As for the other repos in Gitlab, anything that requires a Docker image be built will need to be moved over, unfortunately. The reason we used the datasets namespacing there, was that naming clashes might exist with other repos directly under generated-data-platform. Image matching is a good example, there exists a generated-data-platform/image-suggestions repository that contains AirFlow collateral, and corresponds with the dataset (the code for which is generated-data-platform/datasets/image-suggestions). N=1 one right now, but the theory is that many such examples will exist in the future. EEvans (WMF) (talk) 14:56, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

operations/software/pampinus Jcrespo (but this should inherit LDAP permissions from its parents, as with other operations repos) Merge review This is for #dbbackups-dashboard, part of the larger #database-backups and #Data-persistence-backups We requested a year ago a repository called operations/software/bernard for the database backups dashboard that a GSOC student was going to work on. Sadly, work on that didn't achieve fully its goals and wasn't ready for production deployment, development stopped. We have done some simple Django dashboard to replace the (still existing) need for a #dbbackups-dashboard and bring the functionality to production, but I don't want to overwrite the student's work, so we will use a separate repo for the production-ready code. --JCrespo (WMF) (talk) 16:29, 25 May 2022 (UTC) Yes Done Created as operations/software/pampinus
