      • [ahal] Got a pretty much stable subset of green reftests
      • [ahal] Several reftest bugs getting picked up by layout team
      • [ahal] Continuing work on Negatus with pandas/emulators and devicemanager cleanup
      • [jgriffin] Marionette now works with out-of-process frames.
    • [ON TRACK] Maintain B2G dog food update server as well as builds for development and QA while working to hand them off to releng
    • [ON TRACK] Ensure all webAPIs testable through the emulator have comprehensive automated tests
    • [ON TRACK] Continue to aid QA in creating automated tests for B2G
  • Expand and stabilize Test Automation on new and existing device platforms for NEON and ARMv6 support.
    • [ON TRACK] Have boards chassis-ready -- rooted, smoketested, and working for ARMv6 testing
    • [ON TRACK] Monitor deployment of large scale android and B2G panda board testing, aid with bug investigations
    • [ON TRACK] Implement a new pool-based approach for device management in automation to increase stability on all device testing
    • [ON TRACK] Deploy Autophone with 40 phones and 70% average phone uptime for 3 weeks
      • Uptime is calculated as number of days a given phone has reported proper results, over a certain date range
  • Create and deploy performance automation for desktop, fennec, and B2G product benchmarks

    • [ON TRACK] Monitor Datazilla webservices and ensure our accuracy in detecting performance regressions on a per-push basis
    • [ON TRACK] Deploy Datazilla per-push UI to make it easier for developers to dig into the causes of performance regressions
