Spent most of my time this week on overlays stuff.
Tweaked frontend to match UX's new pretty pictures (a 'la)
Spent most time on backend stuff: developing a nice extensible API for methods of sharing things. This turned out to have far, far more edgecases than one might assume... Proper support for "Send to Firefox Sync" now mostly working (with devices appearing inline in the dialog instead of just launching the old handler): much nicer. Main obstacle reading list support (an unknown quantity at this point as it has yet to receive any real attention).
Largeish patch hopefully to be in review before Richard returns...
Plus the usual complement of little things:
- Reported bug 1054623,
- Spent some time investigating bug 977161, for it's complicating my overlays testing. Dropped for now, since it turned out to be nontrivial.
- Further investigations into free text indexing (bug 808872). Currently, it seems that limitations of SQLite will mandate duplication of url/title data on platforms with API < 11. This is because the virtual table providing free text indexing mandates copying the data on such platforms, and it is impossible to create a conventional index on a virtual table. As a result, you cannot have both free text indexing and a conventional index for a given column without duplication. More study needed...
- Complained about sync some more: bug 1054566
- Optimised the nine-patches: bug 1048683, broke the nine-patches: bug 1055598. Still no idea why that happened (anyone who feels they understand nine-patches is welcome to read the bug and tell me where I went wrong!)
- Android Eclipse support for Search Activity and Google Play Services:
- Working on Remote Tabs home panel bug 1014994, first patches coming today
- More progress on the tab list although progress slowed a bit whilst transitioning from temp repo to Larch repo (https://github.com/mozilla/gecko-projects)
- Requested L3 commit access
- Trying hand at micro commits
- Spent some time working on CLI tools to automate some common tasks
- Carry on hacking tabs
- Learning hg - urgh (hginit.com)
- Back from PTO
- Pulling together second screen work
- Fixing some stuff:
- Last week
- This week
- bug 1035999 - Multiple prompts (notifications) about available app updates - landed
- bug 1026263 - Error writing default prefs during packaged web app installation - landed
- The runtime engineering team is hiring a Senior Web Runtime Engineer!

- Next up, MLS contribution opt-in: new UX, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1027078
- MozStumbler is getting close to a play store release, with the same codebase as fennec stumbler.
