Might need a migration or something; our automation [1]  is now hitting this [2]:

Thanks Stephen. I did a deploy to staging today and something went wrong. I'm trying to get someone to help me figure out how to debug it. I hope to have it resolved by tomorrow.

How did you get that stack trace?

Through www.newrelic.com - your LDAP (email address/username) should already have access (I've verified you have a pre-existing account), but not sure of your password.
I had no idea that was available. That will be very useful when I try to fix this tomorrow. Thanks!
I have fixed this error, but now a couple of tests are failing because of changes to the staging site. :bitgeeky, can you take a look and fix the failing tests? It's probably just a locator change.

I suspect that there are going to be a number of changes, when we push the new features later this week to the staging site.
So I will fix them all together when we release the next version.

Also Bob after this release we must push the development changes to development website and try to keep staging in sync with production.

Bitgeeky, that is not how we address failing tests. Even if we expect changes to happen in a few days, we still need to address the failures now. We can do that either by updating the tests (which should realistically only take a few minutes to do, if it's just a locator change), or by xfailing the tests. We always endeavour to keep our test runs green by either fixing or xfailing tests. That is why I asked you to do it in the bug above.

In my opinion it's worth fixing the tests now, as it will take very little time and it's also possible that future changes will not break the tests, but xfailing is also an option.
