Deployment CabalEdit

Developer Tooling (MW-Vagrant, MW-Selenium, etc.)Edit

- today in browser testing triage meeting we (Antoine, Dan, Željko) have decided that Dan and Željko will continue updating repositories to MW-Selenium 1.x

PhabricatorEdit

Antoine: manually maintained map of repo name / call sign: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Module:Callsigns https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T108864 Update mediawiki.org templates to link to Diffusion, not gitblit https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T101358 Update {{{file}}} to link to diffusion Can we find something less cumbersome than a manually maintained list? Seems end users want to use the repo name but Diffusion only knows about the callsign. Maybe Phabricator could have an entry point that handles the redirect for us?

Chad: Maintaining MW.org templates is a silly thing to do and we shouldn't bother. Yes, we need a redirector and for far more useful things than "we don't want to use callsigns on mw.org" No need to discuss this further as a team, waste of time....
