Action Items and notes from the meeting

  • In the middle of the short 5 week release cycle. Next merge end of month march 30th. 39 is on nightly. 38 is our big spring release. 37 is on beta and we are doing a 36.0.1 with a bunch of stuff. 38 is the next ESR
  • V3 design is done. It will be a big initiative. Details to be announced.
  • MWC and GDC ongoing.
  • Announcements: Clint is stepping down. He will pursue other interests. Stephen will run this meeting. Different moderators will take turns leading the meeting.
  • Questions about the re-org? You can ask now or office hours with Clint or Doug. Everyone is welcome, staff and volunteers.
  • Lightning talks are useful!
  • Tea-time signups are ongoing. Check the wiki for schedules. It's a friendly reminder.
  • Testdays: Last week during the Champions meeting Anthony mentioned that we are trying to rebrand testdays into more mentorship and training and less about volunteers doing testing. Everyone, testdays don't need to be day-long events. For example, Gaby is organizing a local event in Spanish. What type of events are engaging and attractive to our audience? If you need help with ideas organizing an event please ping Anthony.
    • Do we have anything going currently with Hello/Loop? Something where we encourage the organization to use it and report problems.
      • Not currently.
      • Keep services in the loop when we do organize a testing event related to Hello.
  • Justin will demo how to use Vagrant. What it is, and how to use it. "A virtual box in a terminal."
    • Are Vagrant and Docker related? Similar. It's a very power and flexible system already used by several teams at Mozilla.
  • New Jenkins is fully operational. It is public facing. It can do LDAP authentication for staff and it can do authentication for volunteers. Dave Hunt, props.
