(liz) Trying out more reporting on post-meeting followup!
- WebGL issues in nightly?
- [marcia] Could not find the particular reference to this from the last meeting
- Did SV get access/a license to websense for testing?
- Making progress
- Testday focused on WebGL last friday https://public.etherpad-mozilla.org/p/testday-20160826
- Testrail Ubuntu deployment (Ioana?)
- 48.0.2 (we throttled these updates quickly as the crash still showed up in very early results)
- We have another workaround / hotfix for the websense startup crash - https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1298404
- Summary (from Jordan)
- all windows users, we are whitelisting the windows users who have explicitly have the hotfix *and* their OS_VERSION includes the 'nowebsense' string. The other windows users: the ones who haven't got the hotfix yet or who do have the hotfix but also have websense, will continue to get the latest 47 release.
- all other platforms are unaffected
- Usual watersheds apply
- (Callek) Assumption of only release channel(s) [not beta] - yes, not ESR
- (Callek) Will wait for explicit GO for both a testing channel for our QA and a seperate GO for the release-user channel
- and their engineering is answering us now; this is fixed in their newest version and they are trying to backport
- Asked for a free license + help with a workaround
- timeline for websense rollout on their side? don't know.
- How many users? do we know?
- Should we wait to publish the sec advisories till the websense users are brought to 49?
- (liz) 49 beta 8 desktop shipped today
- (callek) beta XP (and Vista) downloads point to 49.0b8 now (SHA1 signed) [per :rail]
- (Drop for next meeting, unless new information) OpenH264 v1.6
- Delayed for Android on release (and esr in case someone built it locally) -- pending more complete testing from Maire's team (bug 1296002)
