  • Redwood Testing Expectations

Feanil Patel

  • BTR will find bugs during a release but what are the expectations of the maintainers?

  • Redwood Release Testing Strategy (Draft)

    • Point 8 in particular

    • Is this different from existing expectations for bugs. Mostly re-iterating for alignment.

    • There is a concern that we can’t respond quickly enough to all tests.

  • What do we do when a release critical bug is found very late in the release process, do we keep the existing triage SLA or can we accelerate it during the late stages of the release.

    • We will codify that around the release process there will be an expectation that maintainers will be available more readily to triage, fix and review bug fixes.

      • If the maintainer is not available, we can seek help from CC but the expectation is for maintainers to communicate their availability or lack thereof.

  • Note For BTR: Bugs from releases should be reported as issues on the relevant repo for maintainers to be able to see them.

Tutor Master Releases

Robert Raposa

Has there been any conversation about a live master release of tutor that we have running to find issues more quickly?

  • PR sandboxes that Axim is testing is gonna be using tutor under the hood and will provide some of this testing.

  • No current known plans to create a persistent tutor deployment off of master.

edx-platform Maintenance Discussion

  • libsass - Kyle to come back with more info next week.

    • libsass is used to compile themes for legacy frontends.

      • We used an outdated version of a deprecated library.

        • It breaks in a trivial way in 3.10

        • Options

          • Update to a newer version of the deprecated library. (Hard, Expensive)

          • For libsass-python and make the one fix for now.

            • Long-lived fork until we deprecate the old frontends or fix forward correctly.


  • Mongo Upgrade Testing - We should update the container for the hosted runner to have both versions of Mongo and then pick a different one during testing. This is the arbi-bom recommendation.

    • Need to do the Mongo 5 upgrade, can’t just skip to 6

      • Docs said this is required so we have to incrementally run through all of this.

      • Upgrade Version Path To upgrade an existing MongoDB deployment to 6.0, you must be running a 5.0-series release. To upgrade from a version earlier than the 5.0-series, you must successively upgrade major releases until you have upgraded to 5.0-series. For example, if you are running a 4.4-series, you must upgrade first to 5.0 before you can upgrade to 6.0.

      • Open question: Can we have Tutor run through all the version upgrades or can we only go to Mongo 5 as a part of redwood.

        • We should be able to do this in Tutor.

      • It might not make sense to do this in terms of capacity since there are a bunch of other things we want to upgrade.

        • If we can’t get to 6 by Redwood, we’d have to go to 6 in Redwood.2 which is not something we have precedent for but may be necessary.

    • Chintan was able to run Mongo 7 with edx-platform and cs_comment_service for a client without any issue.

  • Devstack - Interest in taking over devstack and do 2U specific things.

    • We should re-announce the DEPR as a part of that.
