Last Weeks Action Items


  • [henrik] Automation Development report – week 38 2013
  • [henrik] Due to constant crashes, we disabled Windows 8.1 tests until we get the final version of 8.1

  • [dave] Released gaiatest 0.14 & 0.15
  • [dave] New blog post - Building a harness for Eideticker... with LEGO
  • [henrik] Disabling Windows Defender on all Windows nodes stopped the critical performance issues (see bug 918676)
  • [henrik] Windows Error Reporting has been disabled for all of our Windows nodes to stop hanging processes (see bug 920964)

    • bug 921194 - TypeError: stack is undefined from trusted_ui.js, line 303
  • You can find all blockers here:


  • [Andreea] Bug Priorities - it appears that the new way we organized priorities is making us have way too many P1 bugs
    • We think it would be best to use all 5 priority flags from Bugzilla to cover all cases:
      • P1 - critical, constant failures
      • P2 - new tests - the ones with [qa-needed] whiteboard entry are handled first
      • P3 - intermittent Failures, enhancements
      • P4 - Rare failures (once a month)
      • P5 - refactoring, small enhancements
  • [SV] Metro proposal
    • We need to have the structure discussed on the work week inside the repository, so maybe would be good to have a first test: bug 879382
      • mozmill-tests
      • > firefox > libs, tests
      • > metro > libs, tests
    • UI lib will be ready in a couple of days
    • Firefox Nightly should be set as the default browser on Win 8 machines in order to open it in metro mode
    • We need to add the metro testrun to mozmill-automation
    • Have Jenkins configured for metro runs
    • Have the dashboard updated with a metro tab for results
