Last Weeks Action Items

  • [DONE] [davehunt] Follow up with Henrik about what test/data we want to report to tbpl[2]
  • [NEW] Joel will talk to Tony and will look into what robocop tests we could add for performance/stress - currently covering more of the basic functionality is more important
  • [NEW] Adrian will get access to the tryserver - Jeol will need to log a bug for that
  • [DONE] [davehunt] - Fix the exception that occurs in mozdownload
  • [DONE] [davehunt] - Revisit the automatic retry of downloads in mozdownload


  • New blockers, any updates?
    • bug 838786 - Gaia UI tests suffering from socket timeouts and Marionette status=500 errors
    • bug 840929 - B2G performance tests are failing and unable to recover from failure
  • You can find all blockers here:


Add here any issues or topics you want to discuss with the team

  • [Andreea] - bug 831686 - Create Mozmill test for proxy.pac file served via a file:// protocol
    • needs system settings for proxy, but have not found any API we can use to do that through mozmill
  • What do we think of the new meeting format? Any other suggestions?
  • 'Ask an Expert' is a success! Should we make it twice a week?
  • [Andreea] - AutomationBot from #automation to announce when a bug has been fixed
    • We do get this info on emails updates from Bugzilla, but for my email account at least, when I'm connected to the VPN I don't get any emails until I switch back. IRC on the other hand works (after restart).
  • Mozmill styleguide - Clarify trailing new lines, and how strongly should we enforce this?
    • [davehunt] I suggest specify a single newline at the end of each file in the style guide, but as long as there's at least one new line (and not excessive new lines) we shouldn't block a patch on just this infraction.
