== Wednesday train overlap ==
== Would it be useful to mark SWAT patches to be self-deployed by the author? ==


I've noticed that the Wednesday Services window overlaps with the MediaWiki train, so I always avoid deploying during this time. Shall we move or remove this Services window? [[User:Awight|Awight]] ([[User talk:Awight|talk]]) 19:05, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
I've noticed that most patch authors with deployment privileges prefer to scap their own changes.  However, it's not clear who plans to do this unless the reader has memorized the list of deployer names.  When all patches will be self-deployed, there's no need to have any single person managing the SWAT process (AIUI) so tagging oneself might be useful?  For discussion...
 
This would be possible to automate if Template:ircnick included some code to check against the list of deployers, and perhaps add a colored dot or icon next to the name if the author has permissions to scap.

== Outdated infobox? ==
 
The notes in the infobox currently put the first SWAT of the day at 6:00 Pacific, but the current calendar entries start at 4:00 PDT (which I assume is the same as Pacific). The infobox also claims that on Wednesday, the second SWAT of the day is at 10:00 Pacific, but in the current calendar it’s at 11:00 PDT just like on Monday and Thursday. Is the infobox wrong/outdated, or is the calendar being created incorrectly? --[[User:Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE)|Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE)]] ([[User talk:Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE)|talk]]) 11:17, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

Latest revision as of 15:28, 30 August 2021

The schedule says things like "phase 1, phase 2, phase 3" and this page says "group0, group1, group2". Further, I don't think loginwiki is phase 1 or group0 anymore. --marktraceur (talk) 20:31, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Would it be useful to mark SWAT patches to be self-deployed by the author?

I've noticed that most patch authors with deployment privileges prefer to scap their own changes. However, it's not clear who plans to do this unless the reader has memorized the list of deployer names. When all patches will be self-deployed, there's no need to have any single person managing the SWAT process (AIUI) so tagging oneself might be useful? For discussion...

This would be possible to automate if Template:ircnick included some code to check against the list of deployers, and perhaps add a colored dot or icon next to the name if the author has permissions to scap. Awight (talk) 08:40, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Personally, when I'm intending to deploy something myself I don't put it in the SWAT window so as to leave more spaces for people without deployment rights. There's usually good times still open on the calendar outside of the windows. Anomie (talk) 14:04, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Outdated infobox?

The notes in the infobox currently put the first SWAT of the day at 6:00 Pacific, but the current calendar entries start at 4:00 PDT (which I assume is the same as Pacific). The infobox also claims that on Wednesday, the second SWAT of the day is at 10:00 Pacific, but in the current calendar it’s at 11:00 PDT just like on Monday and Thursday. Is the infobox wrong/outdated, or is the calendar being created incorrectly? --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 11:17, 9 March 2020 (UTC)

@Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE): Good spot, updated. Jforrester (talk) 18:54, 12 March 2020 (UTC)
Great, thanks! --Lucas Werkmeister (WMDE) (talk) 10:58, 13 March 2020 (UTC)

No deployments next week?

@Greg Grossmeier: We see on Deployments/Yearly calendar that there will be no deployments or backports next week, but the detailed Deployments calendar still includes regular backport windows. Please advise! —Awight (talk) 07:43, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Sorry about that, calendarbot saw there was not train and posted the new schedule. The yearly calendar is correct: no deploys except emergencies next week Thcipriani (talk) 22:44, 7 June 2021 (UTC)

Deployment schedule for weeks of August 30 weeks is missing!

I notice that deployment schedule for weeks of August 30 is missing. Any plans to add them? --Agusbou2015 (talk) 20:46, 28 August 2021 (UTC)

They were fixed by @Thcipriani in this edit, thanks for spotting! Jforrester (talk) 15:28, 30 August 2021 (UTC)
