The Boulders

  • Supporting Releng with Android Automation Rollout - ctalbert, bmoss, jmaher
    • Theory that what's going on with the crashtest -- stale webserver running around causing flakiness
    • Bear and Joel working on a solution to track pids so that we can ensure the webserver is down before we start up
    • Philor is filing bugs trying to help things get green, so that should help get us closer to green
    • Things are generally looking more stable, possibly getting the automation to report to mozilla-central this week.
  • War on Orange/Auto-log - jgriffin, mcote, jmaher, harth
    • ES outage on Friday - lost a lot of data -- all of it.
    • IT backups were not being done properly. But by the end of the day we should have the most recent 2 months of data recovered.
    • The metrics guys have learned how to avoid this problem.
    • Have updated the log parser to work with multiple branches
    • Also now storing relevant information on orange bugs in ES and so now we can more quickly query ES rather than the BZ API.
  • Bugzilla Improvements - dkl, glob
    • Postponed the release one week - to this Saturday around 8 or 9 EST.
    • All security reviews are completed.
    • Working now on pulling the BZ API into bugzilla itself, ensuring all the methods on BZAPI exist on the new API inside bugzilla
  • User Responsiveness Measurement - ted, ahal
    • See notes about ctypes native events under mozmill.
  • Abstraction Interface for Buildbot - ted, jhammel
    • Meeting with mozharness - Joel's wiki page link in here.

The Gravel

  • Firebug Test Automation - ahal
    • LSBlakk from RelEng started poking the firebug bugs, so we may get some traction on getting the slaves upgraded.
  • Bug Hunter - bc
    • Buildworkers and crashworkers running under mysql pretty well.
    • Today will make the changes to the unit test worker, and apart from the UI it will be equivalent to the Couchdb version
  • Mozmill 2.0/1.5.x - harth, jhammel, ahal, ctalbert
    • Ctypes native events working for linux with key events/modifiers and mouse clicks
    • Released 1.5.3
    • Clint taking Jeff's reviews.
  • Manifest for the manifest-less - jmaher, jhammel
  • AutoLog - jgriffin, mcote, jmaher
    • no news
  • Talos/Addon Testing Service - ctalbert, anode
    • Planning for the on-demand addon testing release
    • Addons developers are filing a ton of bugs and we need a way to keep up with the deluge of them
  • SpeedTestsJS - mcote
    • Trying out different types of reporting
    • Framework seems stable, running four times a day now.
    • But the results are coinciding and reporting oddly. Numbers are jumping around.
    • Plan to start rebooting it between runs.
    • Some of the updates may be the root cause of the variance in the numbers.
    • Might need people to poke it in the office to see what's happening.
  • Talos Improvements - anode, jmaher
    • bug 612190 Tpaint is officially landed.
    • bug 609111 Xperf waiting on feedback from Alice and waiting on sdwilsh to figure out how to use the xperf tools to parse the data outputted from the xperf software.
  • SpecialPowers - ted, ctalbert, jmaher
    • Mobile guys have been working on extending the API to help get rid of enablePrivilege, so making progress.
    • Dougt worked on getting enable privilege out of eventutils API.
  • Crossweave 2 - jgriffin
    • Decided to move the tests into mozilla-central and leave the harness itself into a separate repo.
    • We can use this model to see how this system might work for other harnesses.


  • Profile Manager - jgriffin
    • Checking with Jonathan Nightingale about whether or not we will bundle with firefox 6.


  • (Anode) Meeting with Josh and Nick last week about network latency test within talos
    • They are going to have to do most of the development on their plate
    • But this will end up on our plate for rollout and staging
  • Lukass and Alice worked last week about rolling out talos updates
    • When we file bugs in RelEng for talos they tend to sit and get lost (assigned to no one)
    • So, releng may file a new deployment category for us. But at the moment we need to ping people to ensure that they get addressed.
    • At the moment you want to get the attention of whoever is on buildduty each week.
    • Overall we need to be more aggressive about tracking them on our side.
  • Bmoss is on vacation on Wednesday -- out for two weeks
  • Ctalbert out Wed-Fri
