< B2G‎ | Meeting
Jump to: navigation, search


  • Welcome to Milestone 5: Prompt, pretty and popular. Focus is on bug fixes, performance optimizations and visual completeness.
  • Entering stabilization mode soon: Please nominate all bugs that you think should block the release using the blocking-basecamp? flag in Bugzilla, and the blockingBasecamp? label in Github.
  • We are collecting tasks that we could implement in v2. If you have any ideas, please put them here: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/GaiaUX-V2-IdeaCapture We will take these ideas into consideration when planning v2. Thanks!



  • <ateam> (mdas, jgriffin)
    • This week:
    • CI is completely blocked due to inability to run emulators on machines without a real display; mwu looking into using Xorg to resolve this
    • Still trying to get panda B2G builds compiled and flashed onto boards; mwu helping with this also
    • Going to write SUTAgent in C to assist with B2G device automation
    • Last week:
    • Marshall fixed the most recent emulator crash...thanks!
    • We've landed Mihnea's xpcshell runner for B2G, will get it hooked up to CI soon.
    • Andrew Halberstadt (ahal) continues work on reftest. There are 1300 failing tests (see list at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=773482), will start running them on CI sans failing tests so we can catch regressions, and then determine what to do about the failing tests.
    • Malini is getting some Eideticker training this week; she'll be tackling Eideticker perf tests for B2G.
  • <QA team> (Geo, John)
    • Issues:

Bug 772801 - B2G Wifi: Fix wifi scanning on ICS Bug 773167 - Otoro: 3G Data Call fail on ICS - waiting to land

    • This week:
    • jammink working on Gaia system test plan; also prepping for field test when in Brazil for FISL (July 21-Aug1)
    • mbrandt covering settings app
    • nhirata covering browser, email, clock, calendar, etc. etc. apps.
    • Alarm API work to be finished this week, WebActivities next up.
    • Martijn W. working on Geolocation
    • David C. continuing on Device Storage and media testing
    • Eric Wei working on WebAPI exercises (currently Geolocation)
    • Gathering all existing WebAPI exercises to be stored here: https://github.com/geoelectric/webapi-exercises, want to start weekly+ smoketest cycles while regression tests are being built out.
    • Krupa (Marketplace testing)
    * Waiting on final specs for Dev hub and Payments
    * Waiting on updates about revised Basecamp requirements for Marketplace
  • <product team> (Chris Lee)
    • This week:
    • Last week:
  • <PMO team> (Kevin Hu, Dietrich, Michael)
    • This week:
    • Last week:
    • burndown viz
  • <Release Management> (Alex Keybl, Lukas Blakk)
    • This week:
    • Working on an internal dogfooding program for MV/TO/SF
    • Continued conversations around "atomically" updating Gecko/Gaia without a FOTA update (who are the right people to include here?)
    • Last week:
    • Continued work on release plan
  • Developer Documentation (sheppy)
    • This week:
      • Hoping to actually work on the debugging guide but launching our new Kuma wiki is chewing up a lot of my time. Once I do, expect questions on #devtools and #b2g.
    • Last week:
    • Don't forget to add the dev-doc-needed keyword to any bugs that even might affect developer docs (whether device integration developers, Gecko developers, or web developers). You don't have to wait until the bug is fixed. We have tools to track this, and using it will get things done faster.
  • On Github, use devDocNeeded label (current open issues: http://j.mp/NTBybM )
    • For example, make sure everything API-related you talk about in these meetings have the keyword.
  • <Release Engineering> (Joduinn)
    • This week:

1) focusing on setting up two sets of builds, with updates

      • "tip" (not calling nightly/daily - implication of 24hour cadence)
      • "stable" (not calling weekly - implication of 7 day cadence)
      • both help us figure out update systems

2) confirmed ICS, not Gingerbread.Need specific toolchain info, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=776045 3) skipping, blocked on instructions: "how to build B2G without any codecs" so we can post builds for testing use https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=769315. 4) still working through https://etherpad.mozilla.org/b2g-builds

      • what builds not needed? contradictory?
      • Priority of "now" vs "next"?
    • Last week:

1) l10n for b2g 2) got physical hands on 2 otoro devices 3) ordered first batch of pandas (50) as we now have stabile-enough fennec builds - will be sharing these with b2g

        • Steven is working on headset detection issue and integrate solution for sound of FM radio. Will submit a patch this week.
    • Last week:
    • Bug 749053 - FM radio support
      • Steven figured out all FM radio problems with partners' help!!! Now, Steven is integrating the solution. Another problem is, FM control logic is in Gecko now, and we should move to Gonk in the future. And, the root cause for no sounds is because of incorrect configuration for analog/digital setting. Now, partner configured it as digital. We may need to figure out what type should be used under what conditions. Otherwise, we will have additional efforts after adopting B2G with new OEMs.
      • Steven is also working on headset detection. The headset detection is different in Otoro. The root cause is, Otoro reports different status when the headset is unplugged/plugged. It's not difficult to fix. But, it needs some time to write it in a well designed architecture.
