Source Code group 12.5 planning (Nov 22)
Release planning for the Source Code group
In 12.3 we began investigating performance and scalability improvements to the merge request. The result being to implement progressively loading merge request diffs. The core of this should be completed in 12.4, but by themselves the performance is unlikely to be improved for most situations.
Also, building on the discovery done in 12.3 and we have been investigating streamlining the merge request diff view, so that it not only loads faster, but feels visually lighters and more focussed.
Given this, in the upcoming development cycle (18 Oct - 17 Nov 2019), we should:
1️⃣Improve the performance of progressive diff loading &1816 by optimizing:
2️⃣Improve the experience of using the merge request interface &1406 (closed)
In support of SLAs, SLOs and OKRs:
A shortlist of other issues we might consider include:
- Improving forking workflows beginning with fast forking gitlab#24523
