Top Level Goals

A list of high priority goals we're committed to achieving in Q2.


FxOS Certification Suite [owner: jgriffin]

Support Mozilla's goal of expanding the uptake of FirefoxOS by OEM's by delivering the next version of the FxOS Certification Suite, which will contain the following:

  • [DONE] A guided (semi-auto) WebAPI test suite (to verify WebAPI functionality)
  • [DONE] The web-platform-tests (to cover HTML and DOM verification)
  • [DONE] Static analysis tools (to verify changes to WebAPI IDL's and omni.ja)
  • [DONE] A suite of tests to verify implementation of the permissions model
  • [DONE] Related documentation

Tracking bug: bug 970615, etherpad:

MarionetteJS tests [owner: ahal]

Increase the impact and usefulness of the Gaia developer's integration tests, by working with them to enable these tests to run on devices and emulators.

  • [MISSED] Build a common harness that can run both Python and MarionetteJS tests.
  • [MISSED] Enable the harness to run on emulators and in on-device automation.
    • On track for delivery in early Q3


Talos Regression Dashboard [owner: jmaher]

Improve our ability to make Talos test results more actionable by deploying a Talos Regression Dashboard. This dashboard will consume Talos alerts currently sent to dev.tree-management, identify regressions in the data, consolidate those regressions, and allow them to be "starred". In this quarter, we will:

  • [DONE] Deploy the dashboard to allow talos results to be "sheriffed"
  • [MISSED] Configure it to work additionally with regression alerts from datazilla (e.g., B2G alerts)

Eideticker [owner: wlach]

Get more value out of Eideticker, one of our more successful out-of-tree performance tools, by increasing its ability to scale:

  • [DONE] Make it easier to add new device types in B2G
  • [DONE] Add test runs against the Tarako device
  • [DONE] Add test runs against the Flame devices
  • [DROPPED] Investigate ways to make it more cost efficient to scale for Android tests, by looking into external DeckLink boxes for HDMI capture
  • [DONE] Run tests more frequently

Datazilla [owner: jmaher]

Improve our ability to monitor our products for performance regressions.

  • [DONE] Minimal alerts for Talos regressions.
  • [DONE] Minimal alerts for mobile Eideticker regressions.
    • More complicated than originally thought, and Kyle's time being shared with charts.


Android [owner: mcote]

Continue efforts to move our Android 2.3 testing to VM's and remove our reliance on tegras.

  • [DONE] Run reftests on Android 2.3 emulators on trunk.
  • [DONE] Designate Eideticker and/or Autophone as the official perf testing system for Android 2.3.


Bugzilla [owner: mcote]

Continue work on performance improvements; move off old systems to allow them to be decommissioned.

  • [DONE] Migrate BMO and upstream Bugzilla CI from Tinderbox to travis-ci.
  • [DONE] Continue and deepen analysis of BMO perf data.
  • [DONE] Improve the slowest MySQL queries or include them in memcache.
  • [DONE] Investigate and, if appropriate, implement improvements to page-load times, including CSS concatenation/minification and delayed loading of bug link tooltips.
    • Delayed-loading of bug-link tooltips was too complicated for the gains; going with a different solution (next quarter) that should give comparable benefits (bug 1028795)

See BMO#Current_Projects for status.

Treeherder [owner: jeads]

Increase our ability to leverage existing and upcoming tools by deploying Treeherder, a TBPL successor. Treeherder will eventually allow us to have a single source of truth for test status, including on-device and extra-buildbot tests. In Q2:

  • [DONE] Deploy a production version of Treeherder in coordination with Laura's team
    • Carryover a using a different virtual host - that will be done in Q3
  • [MISSED] Define and implement a sheriff transition plan to move from TBPL to Treeherder
    • Treeeherder writes failure classifications to tbpl, and treeherder reports data to orange factor were what were needed to do this, but the transition plan was not implemented. Sheriffing transition will happen in early Q3.
  • [DONE] Have Treeherder report data to OrangeFactor
  • [DONE] Start planning on work needed to get performance data into Treeherder; this work will likely be fully delivered in Q3
    • Will go into Q3, but ahead of where we thought we'd be


Good First Bugs [owner: David Burns :automatedtester]

Improve our ability to connect with contributors by making better use of the existing good first bugs list:

  • [DONE] Refresh this list on a monthly basis
  • [DONE] Review good first bugs and make sure they have adequate information for contributors to start with
  • [DONE] Keep the numbers of open good first bugs steady or increasing

Supporting and Ongoing Tasks

A list of ongoing and supporting tasks that the A*Team is actively engaged in. The delivery date for these will vary depending on the resource requirements of our Top Level goals, as well as the amount of support requests that come in during the quarter, and their respective priorities.
