Firefox Core Engineering/Crash machinery roadmap
Crash machinery should be reliable, fast, and informative for both Mozilla and ultimately the user.
This effort began with Get More Data Faster, which is still in progress. The goal is to speed up crash telemetry receipt and provide a basis for near-realtime crash monitoring and trend analysis.
The major milestones overall have been achieved:
introduce client-side stackwalking
create crash ping
land content crash ping
add support for CFI-based stackwalking
Along the way, a variety of related bugs have cropped up. They are this project's backlog and they are tracked here.
