Goals Progress

Below are our top level goals. Beneath each goal, note any progress made towards that goal this week.

  • [DONE] Extend Mobile Platform Automation for B2G and Fennec Native to extend our automation systems to work with specific phone hardware and new development boards for both products.
  • [DONE] Datazilla: Provide generic interfaces/web app plugability for new harnesses to reuse the same infrastructure backend
    • We now have error-tracking in place that will make it easier to track down issues with data we are getting from test harnesses.
  • [DONE] Datazilla: Ensure that new UI is based on extensible statistics package that can be used both by developers and the graphserver UI.
    • NOTE: Revised deliverable in light of developer feedback and changed course mid-quarter to deliver a system that would turn TBPL orange/green based on per-patch regression detection, this means we won't deliver the UI by end of quarter, but we'll still land datazilla on production hardware in end of Q2/early Q3 (waiting on hardware to arrive)
      • Hardware has arrived, IT is working on setting everything up, security review meeting will be this week.
  • [DONE] Signal From Noise Phase II - Make the same noise-reduction changes we made on Tp5 on all the other page-load tests and ensure all performance tests are sending raw observations to Datazilla.
  • [DONE] Refactor how rapid-release tracking flags are implemented for improved performance and maintainability
    • Code complete, just needs testing (and lots of it).
    • May schedule for after 4.2 so that we don't have to retest with 4.2.
  • [AT RISK] Upgrade to Bugzilla version 4.2
    • [glob+dkl] Testing of BMO 4.2 code and debugging and fixing of several issues such as HTML email, SecureMail, etc.
    • SecureMail raising more issues than expected.
    • Expect test systems to be sanitised and open early this week.
    • Hopefully aiming for release around July 23.
  • [DONE] Reduce android test automation instability and make it easier for the web QA and desktop QA teams to write and run automated tests.


This is a place for people to put announcements or to describe activities that they'd like to highlight. It's not the responsibility of the MC to find things to put here.

  • [henrik] MozInstall 1.1 has been released (no assert in is_installer() anymore)


  • [henrik] A couple more of refactoring patches for Mozmill have been landed (PEP8, --restart)
  • [henrik] We now use pprint-color as default logging format (Mutt takes that too)
  • [henrik] Transformed our mozmill-automation scripts to a real Python package
  • [henrik] Added support for functional, remote, and l10n testruns to mozmill-automation for Mozmill 2


  • [camd] completed the results API feature and tests
  • [carljm] figured out broken result-api test and reviewed and merged result-api branch to master
  • [camd] created a 1.1.X branch and requested it be pulled to staging (

New Graphserver (Datazilla)

  • [jeads] Putting the finishing touches on a two legged Oauth implementation in datazilla. This is in preparation for the datazilla security review this week.
  • [carljm] implemented error-tracking for data ingestion, so when data is missing we have a record of exactly why it failed to ingest
  • [carljm] increased test coverage of core data model code from 30% to 85% (full coverage of data ingestion code, missing coverage of UI-support code)
  • [samliu] completed implementation of objectstore branch, separating acceptance of data via REST endpoint from actual data ingestion
