    • [ON TRACK] Aid with B2G changes so that B2G oranges tracked in Orange factor, B2g tests show up in TBPL
      • See Sheriffing/TBPL/War on Orange sections below for progress this week. See Smartsheet for overall progress.
    • [ON TRACK] Make it easier to sheriff and diagnose issues through better notification and automatic suggestions of issues for intermittent failures

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] The top frame of crashes is now shown in TBPL's annotated summary (bug 813650), making it easier to identify crashes without opening the full logs \o/

In-Depth Project Discussion

Pick one project/presenter per week who will give a detail presentation on their project.
