mconley@mozilla.com 10 months ago

Done:

  • Bigass holiday + work week!
  • Finished up the majority of UITelemetry probes - handed off the UITour probes to Unfocused (thanks Blair!)
  • Started attacking the customize mode transition smoothness bug (bug 873060). * Have filed a number of blocking bugs with approaches to make the transition smoother. * Bug 962677 is an important bug in this plan, and will hopefully be reviewable soon.
  • Have a patch cooking to fix bug 930094 (Browser windows sometimes have the nav-bar drawn in the titlebar)

Next:

  • Put the patch for bug 930094 up for review, and file follow-ups for lightweight theme support
  • Get patch for bug 962677 into a reviewable state, reviewed and landed
  • A healthy mix of finding more ways of speeding up the customize mode transition, filing bugs for them, and fixing those bugs.

Coordination:

  • bwinton and I are meeting with Alina Hua and (maybe) Alex Fowler to make sure the BrowserUITelemetry stuff isn't somehow violating our privacy policy.

  • Discussed bsmedberg's proposal to revamp hang reporting.
  • Kept a closer eye on mobile stability while Naoki is away.
  • Did some preliminary testing of a staged version of Socorro with rapid beta / by-build reporting support.
  • Also there, tested additional fields appearing in UI for single crash reports.
  • Replaced clunky handling of throttling in my explosiveness reports.
  • Made some of the data gathering for my reports automatically know about new versions by just querying Socorro data and made crashes per build recognize ESR.
  • As usual, watched new/rising crashes, caring that bugs are filed where needed, and made sure my custom reports keep working well.
  • Reviewed some comm-central ports of build system improvements (bug 727406, bug 781446).
  • Reviewed some German L10n work on Mozilla-16-cycle builds of Thunderbird, Firefox for Android and Firefox for desktop.
  • More work on the 2.12 versions of EarlyBlue and LCARStrek, matching the Mozilla 15 train.

Next:

  • Find out a good way to do our MozCamp session.
  • Keep track of progress on B2G crash reporting.
  • More work on statistics for Flash 11.3/11.4 stability and general tracking of their stability status.
  • Try to find time to get Data Manager web storage panel into shape (bug 588415).
  • Figure out where the problem with search bar "fields" patch lies (bug 643172).
  • Maybe find some time or a volunteer to make Lantea Maps more solid.

sagarwal@mozilla.com

Done:

  • Getting Pymake working on Windows build slaves. To that end, fixed a large number of issues (too many to list; see bug 593585 and its deps). Pymake cuts down clobber build times on the slaves by 50-60 minutes.
  • Borrowed a Windows build slave to test Pymake out.
  • Landed patches to invoke cl.py as a native command when run under Pymake: bug 585011, bug 780508, bug 780612).
  • Misc fixes: bug 600522, bug 781431 + a couple of other small ones.

Next:

  • Work with releng to get Pymake deployed on Firefox build slaves, and then fix up whatever issues we see with Thunderbird.
