State of the 1.19 deployment; one (known) blocking bug
Hi everyone,

I just wanted to give an update on where we are with the 1.19 rollout.
We started the rollout yesterday, as planned, and during our
deployment window yesterday, got through about half of the wikis we
intended to.

You can see some of the fixes we needed to make last night and today here:
https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?path=%2Fbranches%2Fwmf%2F1.19wmf1&title=Special%3ACode%2FMediaWiki

A few key revs:

Rename 'blocking' to 'async', and invert the logic in mediawiki.js
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/111597

Live hack for history blobs:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/111602

Remove everything except english from WikimediaLicenseTexts.i18n.php,
to avoid out-of-memory condition:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/111606

Live hack: stop loading a bunch of languages on log view:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/111614

Sam Reed and Antoine Musso finished off the rest of the planned wikis
this morning.

We have a pretty big Javascript loading problem that may stop our
deployment in its tracks. It's described here:
https://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=34450

This is just a hunch, but the Javascript problems seem to be more
pronounced on meta.wikimedia.org than on other places, so if you're
looking to repro, that might be the first place to start.

This is early in breaking in this release. We're keeping a close eye
on Bugzilla and on this page:
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Wikimedia_maintenance_notice

We point people to this page in our maintenance notices, but people
will likely still go to their respective village pumps. Any help
shepherding bug reports our way would be greatly appreciated, so that
we don't deploy this further with major defects we should have known
about.

Thanks
Rob

Siebrand split the file into smaller ones, which might help.

Amir and I are working on a fix for this.

Also found new issues with CR tool (it could be even more widespread though):

Thanks for the update - I was mostly unaware what has been happening.
