Tuesday

Each Tuesday a Release Engineering team member cuts a new branch of all 198 repositories in a Wikimedia Production deployment. The branch is always prefixed with wmf/ and then a version number. For example: wmf/1.37.0-wmf.1.

The train conductor deploys that to Group0 wikis (see dblists/group0.dblist). This group includes:

Group1 is non-Wikipedias, see dblists/group1.dblist.

Group1 includes:

Thursday

If no blockers are found, the train conductor pushes code to all other Wikipedias, see dblists/group2.dblist.
