Occasionally, updates to the API module cause all of the API files to need reparsing on api.drupal.org (and on the associated staging site).
As things are now, we have to wait for quite a lot of cron and queue-cron Jenkins jobs to run, in order to see if (a) the parsing succeeded without errors and (b) the site is working correctly after all the files have parsed.
So, what we need is a new Jenkins job that we can launch on demand that will parse larger chunks of the files.
We have a sample script at:
(bottom of the page). It needs to be adapted to work via Jenkins -- something like what the live/kick-views-cache.sh script in the Infra git repo does.
I'm working on it... will attach a patch shortly (hopefully).
