    • [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
  • [mcote] Put together a solid MozPool design integrated into dustin & ted's BMM work. Coding about 50% done.
    • [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.

      • [edmorley] Unagi builds and marionette tests are now unhidden on all trees :-D
    • [ON TRACK] Make it easier to sheriff and diagnose issues through better notification and automatic suggestions of issues for intermittent failures
      • [edmorley] If a filename can't be found in a log failure line, TBPL now searches for bug suggestions using the whole line - meaning we can now star 20+ more types of failures \o/ (bug 807707).
      • [edmorley] Test harness patches to make more failures on TBPL starable / easier to diagnose:,808419,808410,808417
    • [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] TBPL now supports starring ~20+ more of the common intermittent failures \o/ (bug 807707 & bug 757838).
