  • <ateam> (mdas, jgriffin, ahal) - updated 10/9
    • This week:
      • Working on getting emulator tests running on TBPL on the cedar branch this week; WebAPI tests to be first, followed by reftests and mochitests
      • Mochitests currently broken due to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=798580. We'll probably have to change the way mochitests are run on B2G.
      • Work on mochitest-chrome postponed due to the above.
      • Work on getting xpcshell tests running is progressing; https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=797162, https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=790677.
      • Trying to get WebAPI Telephony tests working again; https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=792647.
      • Work continues to figuring out how to deal with pandas in remote automation, particularly flashing, power cycling, and keeping the same IP address between reboots.
      • Figuring out the process we'll need to use to mirror testing changes to aurora.
      • Unagi nightly builds updated with new boot.img and backup-unagi files from mwu.
      • There is no pending update server work, AFAIK, except to support QA and the other teams as they test changes.
    • Last week:
      • Update server updated with stable channel: http://update.boot2gecko.org/stable/update.xml. Builds are manually promoted from nightly to stable.
      • Marionette fixed from last week's breakage.
      • Continuing to work on getting emulator tests running in TBPL; we intend to have tests running on the 'cedar' branch for testing next week. After we resolve any problems that appear, we'll promote to other branches. You can follow the progress at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=789652.
      • Adding more a-team resources to B2G.
  • <QA team> (Geo, Tony)


Mochitest Dependencies (fixes in progress, need to make their way to aurora)


    • How does the move to Aurora affect:
      • Process for checking in new tests?
      • Lag time on normal framework fixes/improvements
      • Lag time on expedited (blocker) framework fixes/improvements


Updater blockers:

    • Bug 794211 - [OTA update] never receive update notification using nightly builds
    • Bug 791829 - [OTA update] No way of resuming a stopped/partial update
      • dogfooding.. dogfood what?

Crash reporting?:

Blockers to distributing tester phones:

      • Need to provide final instructions & scripts for Desktop to start preparing the bulk of the devices for deploying to individual testers (mwu,lukas)
      • Stable updates process firmed up & making it possible for QA to do testing on the stable update channel end to end update between builds (jgriffin/tchung)
      • QA to finish vetting the Unagi hardware with B2G stable builds and shaking out any blockers (currently there is nothing that we'd block on) (tchung)
      • Updater Bugs (Marshall) http://bugzil.la/798948, http://bugzil.la/794211
      • Dogfooding Unique ID Setup Script testing (lukas)
      • Feedback App testing (lukas)
    • Convergence:
      • We're moving /all/ Gecko development/builds up to FF18 on mozilla-aurora (landing process)
      • All blocking-basecamp+ bugs will soon have a priority, LOE, and an assignee or somebody responsible for finding an assignee
      • Bug priorities: P1/P2/P3, P1 with severity:critical is basically P0 do now
      • Be on the lookout for needs-info?:you
      • Discussing with engineering managers about creation of a GitHub hook for bug # inclusion, r=, a=, etc.
    • Builds/Updates:
      • Still planning to meet with OEMs/Carriers about current proposal of OEM-owned updates
      • Risks to current proposal are basically Security bugs (0-daying ourselves), cadence of updates, and control over updating v1 to v2
    • Last Week:
      • Migration to Bugzilla from GitHub for bugs is now complete
      • Review of landing policies (r+, tests, when to ask for a+)
      • Ehsan's post on b2g-platform about FF18 as Gecko base
      • jgriffin now has OTA update working for Nightly/Stable channels
      • about:crashes needed for QA (bug 791380)
      • Can we combine Gecko/Gaia for human readable B2G version?
      • Still awaiting dogfooding phone shipment (in transit)
  • Developer Documentation (sheppy)
    • This week:
    • Firefox OS architecture overview on MDN: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox_OS/Architecture -- please review and amend as needed
    • Firefox OS security model overview on MDN: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Firefox_OS/Security/Security_model -- please review and amend as needed
    • Please keep me posted as APIs settle down and are ready to be documented
    • Scott Rowe from Google is driving WebAPI documentation; we are also bringing in a contractor to work on WebAPI documentation specifically
    • 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) - Updated on 09oct
   rail/armen/jgriffin working through rollout issues
      • physical panda board setup (for both and nativefennec or b2g)

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

   gonk vs gecko vs moz-gaia vs other-gaia updates
   who can make source changes has consequences on who can generate updates
    • This week:
      • transition details from ateam builds to releng builds
        • wrapping up do people us to focus on 7a or 7b next?
