Bug ID: 62509
           Summary: investigate updating test2 Jenkins builds weekly to
                    pull by branch
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Quality Assurance

I learned today from Rob Lanphier that it has recently become possible to do
this reliably in every extension repo as well as mw core: 

$ git checkout wmf/1.23wmf17

For example: 

/VisualEditor$ git checkout wmf/1.23wmf17
Branch wmf/1.23wmf17 set up to track remote branch wmf/1.23wmf17 from origin.
Switched to a new branch 'wmf/1.23wmf17'

The current branch of each wiki is tracked in

The current branch of core (which should be consistent across all extensions
also) is available on (and
theoretically in the API somewhere)

It would be good if we could change our Jenkins builds with test2 as a target
to pull the current wmf branch instead of master. 

In the short term, we could update the build config manually every Thursday. 

In the slightly longer term it should be possible to read Special:Version or
the wikiversions.json file in order to determine at run time the proper version
of the tests appropriate for test2 (and any other target environment not beta
labs, e.g. enwiki or commons)
