The schedule says things like "phase 1, phase 2, phase 3" and this page says "group0, group1, group2". Further, I don't think loginwiki is phase 1 or group0 anymore. --marktraceur (talk) 20:31, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Yeah...... so, I think I'mma gonna kill mw:Roadmap#Schedule_for_the_deployments (just that section, leave the rest) and replace it with a description of our WMF-specific release cycle (where when, generaly) and point to Deployments for the canonical list of what's coming when for specific wmfXXs.

Would it be useful to mark SWAT patches to be self-deployed by the author?

I've noticed that most patch authors with deployment privileges prefer to scap their own changes. However, it's not clear who plans to do this unless the reader has memorized the list of deployer names. When all patches will be self-deployed, there's no need to have any single person managing the SWAT process (AIUI) so tagging oneself might be useful? For discussion...

This would be possible to automate if Template:ircnick included some code to check against the list of deployers, and perhaps add a colored dot or icon next to the name if the author has permissions to scap. Awight (talk) 08:40, 18 November 2019 (UTC)

Personally, when I'm intending to deploy something myself I don't put it in the SWAT window so as to leave more spaces for people without deployment rights. There's usually good times still open on the calendar outside of the windows. Anomie (talk) 14:04, 18 November 2019 (UTC)
