  • 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] Create Eideticker tests for B2G on panda boards and run them once a day
    • [SKIPPED] Port Eideticker to win32 and run tests there once a day to measure win32 snappiness for desktop
    • [ON TRACK] Create pageload benchmark with networking shaper tests so that we can adequately track user-perceived performance across all devices and network types
    • [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
  • Update our bugzilla instance to 4.2 providing many benefits from UI to helping people keep track of bugs/projects from within Bugzilla.

  • Make the process of sheriffing easier by updating TBPL and helping make it easier to handle the intermittent test problem
    • [ON TRACK] Aid with B2G changes so that B2G oranges tracked in Orange factor, B2g tests show up in TBPL
      • TBPL support for B2G Panda builds now in production (bug 794715).
    • [ON TRACK] Make it easier to sheriff and diagnose issues through better notification and automatic suggestions of issues for intermittent failures
      • Several improvements now in production or have patches complete - see Tinderboxpushlog section.
    • [DONE] Split mochitest browser-chrome from mochitest-other to improve parallelism and overall turnaround time.
    • [ON TRACK] Make orange factor update more than once a day to help make it easier to see changes over time
    • [ON TRACK] Assist with getting Datazilla's UI integrated with TBPL, phase 1
  • Expand and Modernize the QA Automation framework as well as make it easier and more clear how to write automated tests for QA.
    • [ON TRACK] Finish and deploy mozmill 2.0 changes to frameworks and existing QA tests
    • [ON TRACK] Update selenium grid to use ESX on-demand to improve web QA capacity
    • [ON TRACK] Re-organize and improve the automated testing documentation at MDN
    • [ON TRACK] Develop tests for WebRTC, B2G and other high profile projects


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.

  • [edmorley] mochitest-browser-chrome has been split from mochitest-other helping to reduce end-to-end times (bug 791389, dev.platform post).
  • [edmorley] B2G Panda Image builds are now supported by TBPL (bug 794715) - and can be seen on Try & all trunk trees, so breaking them will now be cause for backout. The existing 'Armv7a ICS' builds have been renamed to 'B2G Arm' & moved alongside the rest of the mobile platforms.
  • Eideticker-on-win32 dropped for this quarter ([wlach] needs to work on eideticker-for-B2G, and it looks like there's quite a bit to do)
