General notes regarding updating repositories

  • Creating PRs


    You can use a tool called hub ("brew install hub" on Mac) to open the PRs.

    • Expect 0.5-1.5 hours to set up all PRs for upgrades/changes.
      • Longer if all repositories and not just IDAs.
    • Some repos have "make upgrade" available, and some don't.  Handling dependency updates is hit or miss, and can sometimes eat up a lot of extra time.
    • Some speed up when you already have all repos locally and tools to commit across repos (e.g. PyCharm).
  • Deploying IDAs
    • Expect 0.5-1 hour for IDA deployments.
      • Longer if you run into weird deployment issues.
    • All IDAs are deployed from GoCD, except as noted below.
    • Most IDAs have a "you merge it, you deploy it" rule, so deployments should go out as soon as you merge.
    • Some repositories must be rebased before you can merge (ecommerce, course-discovery).
      • Be ready to merge as soon as your rebase passes tests so someone else doesn't merge first.  I had to rebase some PRs several times, even while waiting to merge asap.
    • Some IDAs have unique channels for communicating deployments.  It would be better if this were automated.
    • edx/edx-analytics-dashboard (IDA)
      • Master branch is currently RED.
      • ARCH‌-252 has list of pending PRs to be merged and link to EDUCATOR ticket for fix.  EDUCATOR ticket is actively being worked on.
    • edx/edx-analytics-data-api (IDA)
      • Has no e2e tests.  Use portal to test, and review NewRelic (or Splunk) for errors in stage and prod.
    • edx/edx-notes-api (IDA)
      • Has no e2e tests.  Create a note (in stage) to test and review NewRelic (or splunk) for errors in stage and prod.
    • edx/edx-platform
      • Deployment handled by devops for now.
    • edx/edx-video-pipeline
      • Deployment is handled manually by Educator team.  Schedule with Simon or Scott.
    • edx/journals
      • Deployment handled by White Label for now.  You can let them know after you merge if you want.
