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] 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.
    • [DEFER] Have (ARMv6)boards smoketest ready - rooted, working, plugged into Autophone
    • [DONE] 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 mobile device testing
    • [ON TRACK] Deploy Autophone (Noah's Ark) mochitest and robocop test abilities.
  • 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] 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.
    • [DEFER] Deploy 4.2 version of Bugzilla
      • Deferred due to conflict with B2G.
    • [ON TRACK] Ensure that bug migration tools are in place for B2G so that we can share bugs with outside services and partners.
    • [ON TRACK] Complete the 'Sandstone' CSS update
    • [DEFER] Rework browserID <--> BMO integration
      • Deferred due to B2G-related distractions.
    • [ON TRACK] Deliver user and product dashboards
    • [DEFER] Deploy tracking flags extension database optimization
      • Deferred due to conflict with B2G.
  • Make the process of sheriffing easier by updating TBPL and helping make it easier to handle the intermittent test problem
    • [DONE] Aid with B2G changes so that B2G oranges tracked in Orange factor, B2G tests show up in TBPL
      • [DONE] Add TBPL support for B2G emulator/Panda/Unagi/Otoro
      • [DONE] Make TBPL's log parser compatible with mozharness-style output
      • [DONE] File/track B2G intermittent failures, report issues with mozharness' error detection/reporting & unhide builds/testsuites on TBPL once they pass consistently
      • [DONE] Add the new B2G18 tree to OrangeFactor
    • [DONE] Make it easier to sheriff and diagnose issues through better notification and automatic suggestions of issues for intermittent failures
      • [DONE] Add support for more types of failures to TBPL's log parser
      • [DONE] Improve test harness & buildbot output for failures & make the output more compatible with TBPL's parser
      • [DONE] Improve TBPL's bug suggestions for failures
      • [DONE] Make TBPL's tree open/closed status update more frequently
      • [DONE] Resolve timeouts during TBPL log parsing/summary generation
      • [DONE] Simplify the 'TBPL job -> recent history for that machine' workflow
      • [DONE] Obtain BuildVPN access & investigate BuildVPN-only tools and their use to sheriffs
      • [DONE] Simplify the TBPL -> 'viewing job on the buildbot master' workflow
    • [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
    • [AT RISK] Assist with getting Datazilla's UI integrated with TBPL, phase 1
    • [DONE] Reduce regression windows for tree bustage by switching off unused builds/tests to reduce coalescing
    • [DONE] Reduce TBPL & OrangeFactor load on BzAPI/b.m.o, by updating use of BzAPI & transitioning to keywords rather than whiteboard annotations
    • [DONE] Fix our test-harness detection of crashes on Android
    • [DONE] Make it easier to differentiate open/resolved/test-disabled bugs on OrangeFactor, to improve prioritisation as well as finding potential backport candidates
    • [DONE] Track down intermittent-failures missing from OrangeFactor
    • [DONE] Make the tree-closure hook fail closed if treestatus is down
    • [DONE] Increase the SnR of dev.tree-management regression emails by suppressing small percentage changes & cleaning up the subject lines
  • 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] Re-organize and improve the automated testing documentation at MDN
    • [ON TRACK] Develop first round of unit tests for WebRTC
    • [ON TRACK] Ensure all B2G device WebAPIs testable through emulators have comprehensive low level test coverage


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.

In-Depth Project Discussion

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

The Overview

Progress, notes, problems, and other statuses about current projects. Add any new projects to this template!

AutoPhone/Noah's Ark




  • [wlach] Working through various panda issues with tzimmerman and others.
  • [wlach] Refactoring test manifests to use manifestdestiny so dashboard views can be more variable per device

Firebug Testing



Mobile Automation


Mobile Evangelism Site-Scraping Tool





  • [camd] Pinned filters nearly done. One last part to implement and then I can push this week. Hopefully by Wednesday.

New Graphserver (Datazilla)

Open Web Apps




Signal From Noise




Sheriffing & Trees

  • [edmorley] Day-to-day sheriffing of the trees.
  • [edmorley] Have now switched to using sheriffing-P1, sheriffing-P2 etc keywords to instead of [sheriff-want]. Bug transition in progress.
  • [edmorley] Several different cases of frustrating tree breakage (combination of coalescing plus very frequent, but yet not 100% broken failure modes) eating up multiple days combined. Eg bug 821685 and bug 821701.



War on Orange

  • [edmorley] Another big push this week to persuade devs to look at oranges and disabled a bunch of tests where they have shown they aren't interested :-(

Web QA

Automation Development

  • [rwood] Working on test for Screen Orientation modes bug 813777
  • [rwood] Added tests for multipart SMS (10 incoming/outgoing segments) bug 806811
  • [rwood] Updated Mobile Connection Data tests bug 811580
  • [rwood] Updated SMS number filter tests to reflect dev changes to SMS number format bug 819213
