I have a change to the auth mechanism for forums.amo that I need to try. We had a preview box for this at one point, but it was on rackspace and I think it might have expired. Is the box still around?
Wil, No, we don't have that box online, it was decommissioned long back IIRC.
Hmm, is there a way for me to test this patch ahead of pushing it live?
This is important
I'm pretty swamped till Wednesday, so I can't get a new box/instance going for forums before then for sure. If there's an easy way to back out the patch, we could risk it on prod, else I'll try and get something going on preview before whatever deadline you might have?
This is in production on Thursday (9/2). The patch is easy to back out, but it's dependent on the AMO push, and once the AMO push is out, there is no going back (db modifications). So, testing in prod doesn't leave us any room if it doesn't work.
Ping me on IRC when you get online in the morning, we'll discuss.
Actually, I fail. There is a box, sm-amo-forums01, and it's still online and kicking. Access it via the VPN. Your keys are still on it...and so I'm closing this out. /me undoes all the setup changes he was going to make to preview...
