End of MozCI QoC term

We recently completed another edition of Quarter of Contribution and I had the privilege to work with MikeLingF3real & xenny.
I want to take a moment to thank all three of you for your hard work and contributions! It was a pleasure to work together with you during this period.

Some of the highlights of this term are:

You can see all other mozci contributions in here.

One of the things I learned from this QoC term:
  • Prepare sets of issues that are related which build towards a goal or a feature.
    • The better you think it through the easier it will be for you and the contributors
    • In GitHub you can create milestones of associated issues
  • Remind them to review their own code.
    • This is something I try to do for my own patches and saves me from my own embarrassment :)
  • Put it on the contributors to test their code before requesting formal review
    • It forces them to test that it does what they expect it to do
  • Set expectations for review turn around.
    • I could not be reviewing code every day since I had my own personal deliverables. I set Monday, Wednesday and Friday as code review days.
It was a good learning experience for me and I hope it was beneficial for them as well.

Mozhginfo/Pushlog client released

Hi,
If you've ever spent time trying to query metadata from hg with regards to revisions, you can now use a Python library we've released to do so.

In bug 1203621 [1], our community contributor @MikeLing has helped us release the pushlog.py module we had written for Mozilla CI tools.

You can find the pushlog_client package in here [3] and you can find the code in here [4]

Thanks MikeLing!

Welcome F3real, xenny and MikeLing!

As described by jmaher, we started this week our first week of mozci's quarter of contribution.

I want to personally welcome Stefan, Vaibhav and Mike to mozci. We hope you get to learn and we thank you for helping Mozilla move forward in this corner of our automation systems.

I also want to give thanks to Alice for committing at mentoring. This could not be possible without her help.
