Notices, Highlights, Roundtable

  • US will be out next week (the 27th) -- it's up to the non-US folk if y'all want to have a meeting
  • We did our hat drawing. It duplicated everyone so we all get two 1/2 hour meetings with someone on the team just to go over what they do and what you do. It's a way to help cross train the team. We'll see if this proves useful or not. So, this week, it's up to you to schedule a 30min sync-up with the person you're paired with, the left side of the list below are the folks responsible for scheduling. So I (ctalbert) have to schedule something with glob.

It's up to you whether you want to do irc/phone/vidyo etc. It's just for your own mutual benefit.

Process (4th Monday)

Sheriffing & Trees

  • [edmorley] 4-day week, was on PTO Thurs.
  • [edmorley] Android mochitest-gl has been moved out of the default TBPL view due to high failure rate. As a bonus, this will reduce the occurrences of bug 663657, since it turns out they were mainly due to webgl (now that we can tell it apart from the rest of the mochitest-1 chunk).
  • m-cMerge has been moved to from its non-Mozilla server home, so that the static assets are served over HTTPS (bug 871231). Links have been updated on TBPL for now (bug 873099) - but longer term we will integrate with TBPL.


  • [edmorley] Patches:
    • Add more tree-closure reason tags to Tree Status, to aid stats generation (bug 871588).
    • Prevent the treestatus vendor submodule repo from appearing modified when testing treestatus locally (bug 872009).


Holidays and Trips

  • Today is a public holiday for Canada & Germany.
