Announcements & Notices


  • None today.




  • Can we make Gaia completely hosted? Use cases, secure model, etc.
    • Low-level details of updating; chances to provide more opportunities to develop Gaia in new way
    • ServiceWorker: how it works when it links to a DIV(?) (need more details)
    • Persistent: Gecko would forcibly update it when it changed, so client code may encounter troubles
  • High-level Risks of moving to hosted apps:
  • Store data in cloud
    • data will be encrypted
      • how (FxA federated keys etc)?
  • (about the partially shutdown)
    • (from Performance team)
      • Binding to 'visibility' may leave the system in unstable state
      • How about other survivors? If they're waiting the dead worker we may have lots of trouble.
  • What about the current apps?
    • We're not going to force all apps use the new architecture
    • It's not going to break how the current things works
    • third-party devs don't have to use it
    • It's better to know that, but it's not a requirement.



  • No updates
