Unit-Testing Update

Unit testing of the Mozilla toolkit has been making some great progress behind the scenes, as developers look at how their current bugs are going to be tested. I spent the morning looking through toolkit checkins since my original announcement, and only a couple bugs landed without proper testcases. I think we are ready to start the triage process for older bugs, and I so I have created a status page with bugzilla queries. If you are interested in volunteering, I would love help with triaging bugs that do and don’t need testcases (this is also a great way to learn about our codebase). The current stats are:

Needs triage


Needs testcase (in-testsuite?)






The stats aren’t really accurate, since most of the feed parser bugs are filed in the Firefox product, even though they are fixed (and tested!) in toolkit code.
