SCL2 work

  • Kickstarting is working well for RHEL 6.0
    • Side distraction of trying to "switch back" to RHEL 5.5 (based on concerns of puppet configs)
      • This was a big time sink -- RHEL 5.5 has issues doing what I want it to do (does not like the PXE/local combo boot with RAID)
      • Will work on puppet conversion today with petef

Upcoming production work

  • Key exchange server update
    • Improves credentials exchange over flaky network connections
    • Implements CEF logging changes required by infrasec
  • Sreg server update
    • Implements "password reset code" function required by account portal
    • Pending staging tests to confirm that everything works right
  • Account portal beta deploy
    • Doing this in parallel with staging tests and security review
    • Required to verify production network ACLs
    • Hidden from end-users until dev/qa/ops/sec signoff


Account Management Portal (Toby)

  • Now staged and undergoing security review.
  • Because of API mismatch between python and php server and ops availablility, now going to stage directly to production. Since it's not public, that shouldn't be a problem.
  • Have worked with Ragavan on strings

Next-gen Reg/Sync Server (Tarek)

  • auth refactoring in progress for reg/sreg
  • core cleanups (heartbeat, debug pages, etc)
  • documentation + application template

PAKE server (Tarek)

  • Need to sync the wiki page about the new server API
  • Will add documentation on CEF log names
  • Need to hook a functional test that runs on dev/stage

Identity Server (JR)

  • Established milestone dates for ID serve
  • fixed unauth'd login process (for access without widget)


  • Test cases for unauth login flow, Hudson redis, etc.
  • Site ID generator (with tests)
  • Work w/ rnewman RE: javascript library?
  • wait for the DayQuil to kick in.

Firefox Home 2.0 (Stefan)

Working on some basic infrastructure & code for our first demo/prototype.

Firefox Home 1.1.1 (Stefan)

Final testing by QA. Set goal to submit to app store this thursday.

App performance issues due to Places (philikon)

  • landed in 2011-01-30 nightlies
  • Fennec
    • noticeable improvement in UI responsiveness during history sync
    • not noticeable when logging is enabled, investigate making logging write to disk async
  • Firefox
    • >~25% speed improvement for history sync

Fx4 Sync Blockers (philipp/rnewman)

  • down to 1.5 blockers

Notifications (Shane/Alex)


  • Smoketests against jpake staging server changes last week
  • Focusing on nightly testing, places work landing
  • Release testing on FF Home 1.1.1. Focus testing around flaky wifi patch (bug 618969




  • 3rd party testing complete - all bugs filed
  • J-PAKE Security testing nearing completion. Remaining focus is finishing verification of CEF logging for security monitoring and ensuring blacklisting cannot be used to blacklist other IP addresses
  • Account portal security testing has been delayed due to non-functioning application. Account portal will be moved to internal-only-access prod deployment to enable testing.

Issues blocking security

  • Account Portal Non-functionality - Now fixed.
  • SSL deployment of Account-portal
