Goals Progress

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

  • Ensure B2G has all test automation available to prepare for launch
    • [ON TRACK] Deploy B2G Test Automation into TBPL running on Emulator and Panda platforms.
    • [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% up time
  • Create and deploy performance automation for desktop, fennec, and B2G product benchmarks
    • [ON TRACK] Create Eideticker tests for B2G on panda boards and run them once a day
    • [ON TRACK] 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.
    • [ON TRACK] Complete the 'Sandstone' CSS update
    • [ON TRACK] Complete the REST API integration
    • [ON TRACK] Rework browserID <--> BMO integration
    • [ON TRACK] Deliver user and product dashboards
    • [ON TRACK] Deploy tracking flags extension database optimization
  • 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
    • [ON TRACK] Make it easier to sheriff and diagnose issues through better notification and automatic suggestions of issues for intermittent failures
    • [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


  • Had the A*Team work week in Toronto last week. We did a bunch of things....
    • Got a datazilla analysis tool developed to view how well the new datazilla system tracks the old graphserver system
    • Pulled together lots of information from moztrap and bugzilla for B2G
    • Got a preview of the new Bugzilla 4.2 work, and got search changes reviewed
    • Documented mozbase
    • Updated project documentation
    • Debugged panda board kernel issues for B2G
    • Decided how to move ahead with MozTest for Mochitest and Gaia-Integration automation suites
    • Debugged and fixed issues to get board running robocop tests (on an sdcard, but the board has a known issue where it won't mount the sdcard by default)
    • Discussed changes to automation infrastructure that would help developers, reviewed our plans with them as well
    • Created webAPI tests for B2G, got the emulator screen-orientation tests working (up to an AOSP bug anyway)
    • Hammered out final design of MozPool/Lifeguard with the other parties that we depend on (Releng, IT)
    • Unbitrotted and updated code to port mochitest to Mozbase now that we have cedar we can actually land this code.
    • Invited three contributors to join us for hack days and worked with them on several of the above projects.
    • Ahal and Chmanchester got the AMO "JS validator" to run against mochitests in order to identify tests that might cause intermittent oranges
    • Figured out what linux unittests will run on EC2 VMs. Looking really good to run non hardware dependent tests in the cloud.
