Notes

  • We should avoid generating language packs on Wednesdays, which are Launchpad rollout days
  • If language pack generation on Tuesdays take longer than usual (say 10h), we might even hit our early Wednesday rollouts and language packs might not be generated.
  • The timing is chosen so we hit the times when we usually expect the lowest load. Most of the translation work happens in Europe, South America and Asia, and 22:00 UTC should mean less load on LP due to translation activity. With DB slaves, though, this is probably not something we should worry about.
  • Launchpad crontabs live in a branch on devpad:/code/pqm/crontabs/launchpad-production/ (look at the loganberry-launchpad file).
