   Performance bugs :
   Working with SUMO on feedback bugs:
   New Usecases report -
   NH: This report is great.  Having said that, the reason why some of these are blank is because there were some unanswered comments, and looking at the status they are still unanswered.  These use case doesn't satisfy what's in the spec nor what is implemented.  Trying to get buy in from the PMs about this, however I am not having any luck.
   Triaging existing mochitests for inclusion on TBPL. Have found a number of layout tests we can include, a few tests from other areas.
   Working on a semi-automated way to do this test triage, as manual triage is very slow.
   Permissions testing coming together, nearing completion on all three suites as defined at
   Working with A-Team and B2G dev to get permissions handling for functional tests centralized in the framework so we don't get overly derailed by dependency breakage.
   Moztrap Testcases - currently QAnalyst are running testruns against the device and logging review data.   We'll have a pass at fixing these testcases - per review - during this and next week.
   Apps (Jason) 
   Preloaded apps ramp-up and coordination with Karen
   More exploratory testing of the apps flows on device

   Spreading into tests that send SMS and make calls - useful stuff for the team to have and getting closer to using the device in a 'real' scenario. (it's fun too!)
   Adding in about 1/2 dozen more tests every week but that will increase now we have good infrastructure and more contributors coming on board.
