 * 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.

Notes

  • The old timing (was 22:00 UTC) used to be 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.
  • The new timing (9:00 UTC) was chosen to be after the new fastnodowntime window at 8:30 - 8:35 UTC during which the database will shortly be unavailable. This would break the export run and has to be avoided (bug 849829).

  • Currently full language exports take much longer than expected, approaching 24h (bug 684664)

  • Launchpad crontabs live in a branch at lp:lp-production-crontabs (look at the loganberry-launchpad file). If the crontab entries need changing, do the updates yourself in a branch and propose a merge.
