  • Welcome to Milestone 5: Prompt, pretty and popular. Focus is on bug fixes, performance optimizations and visual completeness.
  • Daily Smoketests: Using the "smoketest" keyword. If you own a bug with that keyword, should relocate to a bunker and work on nothing else until it's fixed.



  • <ateam> (mdas, jgriffin, ahal, wlach) - updated 10/30
    • This week:
      • Overview: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/b2gstatus-ateam
      • Have converted update.xml generation on dogfood update server to a web app; will make it much more flexible in dealing with future changes
      • Mochitests are running reliably green on TBPL on cedar (https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Cedar ); working on moving this over to m-c and other trunk trees. ETA end-of-week.
      • WebAPI tests are running with oranges on TBPL on cedar; working on fixing up some problems; will target moving to m-c next week.
      • Work is progressing on getting reftests running on cedar; will work on getting them into m-c after that, likely next week.
      • Work to get XPCShell tests in TPBL will lag the other unit tests, likely ETA week of Nov 12
      • Work to adapt mochitest-plain so it can handle browserChrome events (bug 798580) was much more complicated than anticipated, but work is progressing and there a couple of patches for review.
      • Working on getting Gaia integration tests running daily on a panda and reporting to autolog; ETA next week. Will look at gaia unit tests after.
      • Assisting WebQA with their automation of smoke tests and configuration of a Jenkins instance for running them on an unagi
      • Working on getting Eideticker running in a "manual" mode on a daily basis on a panda.
    • Last week:
      • Shaking out bugs in the update process with marshall_law and tchung which arose after the switch to aurora.
      • WebAPI tests just got turned on for cedar in buildbot; we're waiting for them to appear on TBPL and then will resolve any problems that show up. I hope to be able to promote them to trunk branches by end of week. Reftests and mochitests to follow.
      • We have telephony tests running again.
      • Work on mochitest-chrome is slower than anticipated, since it has never run remotely (i.e., with Fennec).
      • Need a decision on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=798580; so we can alter the way that mochitests are run on B2G in order to support tests for security checks (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=780955).
    • Investigating ways to get Gaia tests in CI.
  • <Release Engineering> (Joduinn) - Updated on 30oct
  • <QA team> (Geo, Jason, Tony)


      • 'smoketest' keyworded now
      • Bug 805967 - [OTA update] much of my user data blown away in today's update (fixed tomorrow's build?)
      • Bluetooth transfer work
      • video recording on gaia work
      • Signing of packaged apps - really concerned about progress here


      • reminder for devs that test on device, to pull from mozilla-aurora branch
      • Methodology being used to get around permissions on mochitest (e.g., https://github.com/geoelectric/webapi-smoke-sprint/blob/master/settings/test_launcher.html) broken by recent (valid) platform changes. Need a new way to launch these, will be working to nail a supported best practice this week.
      • Separating out API permissions testing from dependencies on app install, mochitest-chrome, etc, so we can get some substantial testing sooner. Working on a revised project plan.
      • Unblocked on apps testing, can go back to testing hosted and packaged apps
    • Last week:

BLOCKERS: [Smoketests]

    • Bug 800625 - [unagi][video] video does not show preview
    • Bug 803049 - [Gallery] Previews appear and disappear
    • Please fix assign someone to fix the two above. We'll push a update to stable today, but would like to get to green smoketests


    • Bug 803790 - Installing of packaged apps with the mini-manifest is broken
    • Use cases still not completed for payments and identity, not sure if apps cases are entirely complete
    • use 'qawanted' keyword if you need help with bug regressions and reproducibility


    • Unblocked on the mochitest sanity test suite. Currently vetting it against current codebase, putting up for review ETA tonight.
    • Perms testing on B2G still dependent on mochitest-chrome. Discussions with dougt happening about how we can move forward testing perms manager on desktop while waiting for dependencies to unblock.
    • More alarm, device storage, power management, contacts mochitests tests being finished up and due in this week.
    • Apps - Test cases defined for payments on the API side have an initial minddump. Holding off on apps testing on device until some of the rework is completed on the platform + front-end.
  • <product team> (Chris Lee)
    • This week:
      • on the way to London
    • Last week:
      • User story audits happening this week.
      • We are meeting with TEF next week to review the overall program (Product, Engineering, UX, Marketing, Apps, BD, etc.)
      • Working with release management to prioritize all dogfood blockers to kick off the program asap
      • Coordinating with OEM partners on software updates
      • Working with the team on prioritizing remaining feature work
  • <PMO team> (Kevin Hu, Dietrich, Michael)
    • This week:
      • User-story audits - both dev and scoping
      • Absolute scope representation
      • Convergence scheduling & workflow
      • Scheduling and coordination for workweek
    • Last week:
      • in London
      • in MV for PM offsite
  • <Release Management> (Alex Keybl, Lukas Blakk, Bhavana Bajaj)
    • This week:
    • Dogfooding:
      • Nailing down the bug filing pipeline for feedback
      • We've asked that users who know how to file actionable bugs help us skip the feedback collation step (taking some pressure off of SUMO/QA)
    • Convergence:
      • Working with the security team to come up with a final update proposal that keeps our users as safe as possible given OEM/Carrier requirements
      • Finalizing a convergence milestone plan
      • Crash symbols -> Socorro sounds like they're close to being done (jgriffin said bug 807005)
      • Focusing on FOTA update testing to take:
        • 802214 – Unagi phones are using an unrepresentative amount of memory, affecting testing
        • 803733 – Remove the hack around otoro orientation issue when capturing still images
    • Last Week:
    • Dogfooding:
      • Feedback coming in like crazy - over 200 entries, see them here https://b2gtestdrivers.allizom.org/comments_table
      • Bugs filed by dogfooders (60+) - will be putting a new template up removing Jonas from cc list and adding blocking-basecamp? by default -- any other requests?
      • Don't ask dogfooders "can you check in recent nightly?" - they can't - expect a certain amount of delay between when a fix is landed, uplifted to mozilla-aurora, and then gets into a stable update.
      • Stable Updates - kind of a big deal, we need 'em - focus on bugs that are reported in smoketest failures, these are blockers to getting users onto most recent stable update
      • Right now we are planning to force at least one update per week (Wednesdays, best-of-the-week) but ideally we'll get smoketests passing more often and smooth out to update every 24 hrs
    • Convergence:
      • nothing to report this week
  • Developer Documentation (sheppy)
    • This week:
      • not in attendence

User Documentation & Support

(Michelle has a conflict today, just read the wiki)

  • Dogfooding and sending feedback summaries
  • Mobile redeisgn is landing and looking good
  • Action on the in-product links to support from Settings, thanks for the help there
  • Eveything.me will contribute help articles and forum support to SUMO per verbal agreement last week
  • TEF cancelled our meeting this week, so no new SLA progress
  • Starting training documentation outlines and scheduling
  • Based on 'second freeze' features coming in, I'd like to plan on conducting doc reviews during the last weeks of November, so we can incorporate all changes in early Dec.

  • Camera (Mike Habicher) - Updated on 10/30
    • This Week:
      • bug 799586: camera app crashes starting video mode after taking a picture
        • looks like a race condition: camera driver is still servicing takePicture() when the mode switch comes in
      • bug 800203: major graphical glitch after taking a picture on unagi
      • bug 801693: need to plumb in support for reporting recorder status/error updates
      • bug 806582 - LANDED: photos taken with camera have incorrect orientation data
        • fix landed on unagi, still needs PR acceptance on otoro
      • bug 804741 - LANDED: need to call close() after passing video file handle to setOutputFile()
      • bug 800627 - LANDED: video recording not working on unagi
        • unagi was missing libOmxVidEnc.so and proper media_profiles.xml
      • bug 806055 - PATCH READY, BUT: camera saves huge (384x512) thumbnails
        • tried to make camera default to smallest non-0x0 thumbnail size, but
        • the camera driver is ignoring the settings
        • I can shrink the thumbnail sizes by reducing the quality (1% = 4.5KiB at 384x512) but the thumbnails look like something out of an Atari 2600
      • bug 807058 - PATCH READY: expose CameraCapabilities.thumbnailSizes and CameraControl.thumbnailSize
    • Last Week:
      • bug 795379 - LANDED: expose recorder profiles to JS (currently only records at 352x288)
      • bug 804359: need to expose runtime-detected recorder profiles without relying on constants defined in media/MediaProfiles.h
        • vendor implementations can and have diverged from the AOSP headers we build against
        • conflicting profiles are currently disabled
        • lower priority, since v1 doesn't need to record at high resolutions
      • bug 804802: recording in 800x480 mode can cause the camera to hang
        • if an 800x480 recording is started on a fresh camera app start, recorder works fine
        • if an 800x480 recording is starting after any other recording, the DSP fails to allocate memory and the recorder and camera hang
        • high-res recording not required for v1
      • bug 795090: limit maximum size of recorded file (else video recorder will fill your uSD card)
        • blocked on bug 801693
        • this can probably be done more intelligently in the JS layer
    • In The Queue:
      • bug 795332: "record-size" option may be deprecated in favour of "video-size"
        • not a big issue for Otoro, since the camera hw only supports one video stream, and its properties come from "preview-size"
      • bug 789067: clean up extraneous abstract ICameraControl class
        • patch posted to bug, still waiting on (increasingly obselete :) review
      • bug 786756: exposing more camera frobs
  • RIL: Cell broadcast (Vicamo) - Updated on 10/30
