Each environment is deployed on a different cadence. Production is deployed once per week (every Monday at 9am) and staging is deployed at 9am, 1pm, and 6pm every day (all times Mountain Time). If you need the deployment frequency of either environment turned up temporarily, please let me know. There’s currently not enough activity to justify more frequent deployments, but I’m happy to help if you’re working on documentation.
While the documented projects are typically on a tagged release model, all documentation on this site is on a rolling release: anything that’s in the
main branch of the project repository will get deployed to this site. That can be changed temporarily to accommodate specific work in any project repository: open an issue and let me know what you need.
Functionally, there is no difference between the two environments. They are hosted on the same server with the same configuration. Eventually, I may add some stuff to staging to discourage search engines from indexing the pages, but that’s not a huge priority right now.
