          • the signature differing causes issues in updating because the cert fails.

        • dependencies on Taskcluster bugs
        • need to talk about long term signature keys and updating the builds.
    • Aries :
      • whitelisting has at least 4 dependencies that we have to figure out between taskcluster team and releng.
      • currently blocked due to needing to figure out location of builds. TBD in next meeting
  • Announcement
    • Please thank Alexandre Lissy for his work on getting build scripts for automating FOTA builds for both aries and flame
      • it's not within his realm, but because we do not have a b2g build engineer; he has unblocked QA and moved these parts forward.


(Alphabetical order)

Gaia Architecture Work

  • Telemetry library
   -We are closing in on feature complete.  
   -Few more review items outstanding + 1 blocker with app startup time we are working on.
   -Contacts team is trying out the custom metrics.
  • Web app bridge
  • Service workers
  • SMS app conversion
  • Music app conversion
   - Working on performance optimizations and functional bug fixes. (see more below)
  • Contacts app conversion
   - No new updates, working on blockers, we got ride of the performance regressions, but still we can see how contacts 2.2 in current mozilla central performs works than in gecko 2.2
   - Patch on the way, start using custom metrics to check how features are being used.
  • Sync
   Landed, now bugfixing. Next week work week in Taipei to be sure 2.5 sync on tv will run smoothly.
