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.

  • OrangeFactor on trunk trees for last 7 days is now a whopping 10.35 !! :-( (See dev.platform thread).


Any issues that need discussing with the entire team go here

  • New Meeting format

In-Depth Project Discussion

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

Upcoming Events

  • Bugzilla downtime & the long awaited upgrade is Tuesday night (i.e. tomorrow) in north america, 17:30PST - 11PST. If you know a bugzilla developer, send them snacks and coffee. But seriously, if any tools go down as a result, be prepared to be on point to fix them. However, we don't expect any issues.

Round Table

  • Who can help out diving into the Android automation failures in the top 10 highest on orange factor?
  • We need to land FPS measurements by end of week for b2g. We are close. What does it take to get there?
  • There has been a recent surge in bug 710942 and bug 844648. Do we know what's causing these disconnects?

Take notes here and copy and paste them to this section afterwards.

  • [edmorley] Reviewed bug 766546, bug 634747.
  • [RyanVM] Regression finding & backouts of recent oranges.
  • [RyanVM] Developer outreach on some of the unowned top oranges (bug 749894, bug 833769, bug 754860, bug 689256)
  • [RyanVM, edmorley] Discussions with Clint about bringing OrangeFactor up in tomorrow's platform meeting and possibly offering once or twice monthly updates on an ongoing basis.

Performance (3rd Monday)

New Graphserver (Datazilla)

  • [jeads] Released a few bug fixes and features for
    • Adjusted database query and the graph displaying replicates in the UI to address the issue described in bug 845864
    • Added "7 Days" to the list of time range filters to address bug 845364
    • Application names that do not have data available for the selected test and branch are automatically hidden. This addresses bug 844756
    • Added a select/unselect all checkbox in the top of the Applications container. Thought this would be useful as we approach double digit application lists.
    • Added a permalink feature that captures the UI state and provides a handful of filter params in the url. This addresses bug 845936. Will be replacing this with a url based history this week, see bug 847174 for details

Signal From Noise



  • [wlach] - used eideticker's startup test to evaluate pgo builds (found no difference, as with talos)
  • [wlach] - evaluation continues for pointgrey cameras. have capture working with flea3 test model, though only in black & white for some reason


General Framework Support (4th Monday)


WebRTC Test Development

Process (4th Monday)

Sheriffing & Trees

  • [edmorley] WIP policy draft (destined for wiki.m.o) on "criteria for having a new platform/testsuite shown by default on TBPL". (In response to the same questions having arisen multiple times over the last few months).
  • [edmorley] Several discussions over the tree.m.o aliases and tinderbox depreciation.
  • [edmorley, RyanVM] Multiple debates over the need to close the trees for the Bugzilla 4.2 rollouts. The resistance received (and having to restate our case to multiple parties, when the sheriffs IMO ultimately have the final say) was pretty frustrating.
  • [RyanVM] Day to day sheriffing of trees, including multiple tree closures for various infrastructure problems and bustage landing during peak checkin periods. As noted above, last week's OrangeFactor made regression hunting and backouts extremely difficult.
  • [RyanVM] Initial triage and filing of mochitest-assertion-as-failures bugs.
  • [RyanVM] Daily release branch uplifts. Weighed in on B2G developer request to consider tracking+ sufficient for uplift approval through 3/15.



Holidays and Trips

  • [edmorley] PTO next week Mon+Tues (11th-12th March).
