- Landed bug 719459, ontitlechange for <iframe mozbrowser>. So we now have onloadstart, onloadend, onlocationchange, and ontitlechange. Is anything else critical for the demo? If so, please add to bug 715782. - Working on bug 714861, <iframe mozbrowser> as a separate process. - Tools for using git: https://github.com/jlebar/moz-git-tools (push from git to hg with no conflicts, attach patches to bugzilla, etc.)

- Continuous integration is running; test results at http://brasstacks.mozilla.com/autolog/?tree=b2g&source=autolog. "Mn" are marionette tests, "Mg" are marionette-gaia browser-chrome tests. - We only have 1 WebAPI test, for the battery API. Will add more soon, working with jhammink. Most WebAPI's are not working well on the emulator atm. - Existing docs are pretty basic (https://wiki.mozilla.org/Auto-tools/Projects/Marionette#Writing_Tests), will add more robust docs on MDN soon. - The gaia tests are mostly failing due to timeout problems. They watch for the app being loaded using something like:

   return 'Timer' in clockWindow;

where 'Timer' is added by a <script> element. However, it appears this can be loaded without the DOM being fully loaded, and this usually causes tests to fail; gaia apps on the emulator are very slow. I'll make a pull request with modifications to the tests that enable them to pass with Marionette. - We've added code to report previously uncaught JS exceptions that occur during tests. - We've added the Marionette testrunner as a submodule to the B2G repo, so we can implement a 'make test' command.

  • jhammink

-Some working SMS/Telephony scripts/Application Launch scripts - not yet available in tree. Focus is on actual device (not QEMU) --telephony API - or my script - has some issues, specifically, I can't get navigator.mozTelephony.dial() to work from marionette script; needs looking at -Use-Cases in the works, based on https://etherpad.mozilla.org/gaiademo - exploratory/manual testing (mostly SMS and Telephony) --list of open (and recently closed )bugs based/affecting exploratory testing: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/B2G-Bug-Triage-1-31 -need to move - Part 1: Setting up Boot-to-Gecko build environment - to MDN -need to add - Part 2: Integrating B2G with Marionette - to MDN

  • tchung

- gonna talk Marionette testing with jhammink, jgriffin, cjones and faramarz tomorrow - looking for more devices so we can get more testing - Q: how do you guys get contributors to join without hardware and phones?

  • qDot

- Found workable LGPL C++ DBus API for B2G (means we don't have to use glib) - Implementation started on DBus objects for bluetooth. Have adapter object accessible and changable, need to add events now, then things should come together quickly - Still haven't tested on a phone yet, mostly working on linux desktop at this point in hopes that it will "just work" on phone. Planning on trying maguro first to avoid sgs2 firmware issues

  • gwagner

- Change contacts from Callback to request based functionality. -Working with Jonas on DOMRequest. Alphatester. Got it to run with basic functions today. - Constructors defined in IDL and implemented in JS can't take arguments.

 right now: x = new Contact(); x.init()....
