  • Welcome to Milestone 5: Prompt, pretty and popular. Focus is on bug fixes, performance optimizations and visual completeness.
  • Meetings: Split Gaia into two parts? Converge Gaia and Platform now that closing major v1 work? Thoughts?
  • Daily Smoketests: The most important thing you should ever look at ever: http://bit.ly/Nbpp5C
  • ESTIMATION: Please finish estimating your blockers with format: [LOE:SIZE]. Please fill this in whiteboard field in Bugzilla, and the labels in Github, where SIZE is:
      • S - small. task is 1 week or less.
      • M - medium. task is up to 3 weeks.
      • L - large. task will take more than 3 weeks.
  • Dashboard updates:



  • <ateam> (mdas, jgriffin, ahal) - updated 9/4
  • <QA team> (Geo, John)
    • Gaia QA updates at: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/gaia-meeting-notes
    • BLOCKED: Nightly build failing, https://github.com/mozilla-b2g/gaia/issues/4314
    • When and where do we expect to see LG builds? And how much of a priority should QA treat these for testing at this point?
    • BLOCKED: Payments landed, but apparently not testable to not having Mt View IPs whitelisted for BlueVia dev servers, certificate creation script not working.
    • This week:
      • John back from BZ work week. Currently updating the smoketest and running/vetting new smoketest.
      • Tony back from Paternity. That's my girl! http://tinypic.com/view.php?pic=qy9s7l&s=6
      • Met with Release Management to go over dogfooding plan and identify next steps
      • Have prototype geolocation test for handling permissions testing w/ prompt (thanks, David Chan!). Met today with dchan and ptheriault to figure out next steps. Starting with ten high-priority APIs and doing following: working on content-based tests, getting webapp/trusted app fixtures in place, and fully identifying which functions/globals will be covered.
      • Two week sprint starting today to get a WebAPI smoketest suite into CI.
      • Working with WebAPI team to vet existing mochitests for inclusion in CI
      • Drafting a web payments test plan for mozPay and finishing ramp up
      • Began getting synced up current implementation of Web Activities
      • Created a landing page for apps-related stuff on Firefox OS for testing - https://wiki.mozilla.org/B2G/QA/Apps
    • Last week:
      • Geo taking QA PoC in Tony's absence. If it's specific to Apps/Marketplace, go to jsmith; specific to Gaia, go to jhammink; either Gecko/WebAPI or whole-team, go to geo.
      • Met today re: security/perms. Gecko/WebAPI testing will start with basic allow/deny testing of all APIs in all app contexts. Piloting with geolocation, will scope and estimate rest from there.
      • Contacts test development in progress
      • As of yesterday, still blocked on dev input re: Camera API; working on media playback test plan and test media in meantime.
      • Moving on-device API smoketest exercise into certified app so APIs have full permissions. Will use as an example to build other on-device exercise apps.
      • Digging into packaged app and FF OS specific properties (testing)
  • <product team> (Chris Lee)
    • This week:
      • MMS is out for v1
      • Multiple SMS recipients is also out for v1
      • Tethering is only specific to WiFi Hotspot, we will not support USB and Bluetooth for v1
      • FM radio toggle is out for v1
    • Last week:
  • <PMO team> (Kevin Hu, Dietrich, Michael)
  • <Release Management> (Alex Keybl, Lukas Blakk, Bhavana Bajaj)
  • Developer Documentation (sheppy)
    • This week:
      • Have been asked by the partner relations folks to write docs about overall architecture, security, and performance, so that's what I'm working on.
    • As always:
      • 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.
    • Feel free to ping me on IRC (sheppy) or by email (eshepherd@mozilla.com) with questions, requests, or suggestions.
      • 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) contractual details of how-to-do-updates

    • Last week:

1) progress on contractual details of how-to-do-updates

    • gonk vs gecko vs moz-gaia vs other-gaia updates (and who changes source)
