##Other## Filed and fixed bug 917706 (browser debugger and associated menuitems should work as soon as the pref is flipped, not require a new window open / restart) Filed bug 918240 about the "restart now" annotations next to the debugger prefs, is now also fixed! :-)

This means you can now enable and use the browser debugger without restarting, including in browser mochitests! See also my (now slightly outdated) blogpost: http://www.gijsk.com/blog/2013/09/debugging-chrome-js-and-mochitests/

Still more Australis stuff! Hoping to have some time to work on bug 895471 (run mochitests with the debugger attached) so that you don't have to manually enable it all the time.

Working on bugs/enhancement requests on the topfails website.

Tried [ unsuccessfully ] to create a backPort tracking application for changeset landings. The idea is to ask for a release branch and check if all the relevant landings on the branch are ported appropriately to all the current & active named-branches. Unfortunately, the logic of deciphering what are current active named branches on a given release is not trivial.
