The minutes from TechCom's triage meeting on 13 January 2020.

Present: Dan A, Daniel K, Tim S., Tim T.

RFC: Introduce PageIdentity [Approved]Edit

RFC: Normalize MediaWiki link tablesEdit

  • https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T222224
  • Amir shows that the enwiki-pagelinks table has surpassed the size of the revisions table.
  • Jaime shows that (post-MCR compression) the revision tables have gotten considerably smaller, and that on Commons the image/oldimage tables are even bigger than pagelinks and pose a bigger operational risk (since link data can be regenerated). He recommends executing the oldimage migration, which was approved in 2017 as part of RFC T28741.

RFC: Drop support for older database upgrades [Last Call]Edit

RFC: Stable interface policy, Nov 2020 amendment [Last Call]Edit
