Status Updates

[doliver] (read-only)

Landed patch to move most of the apps out of the core apps/ directory and into dead_apps/. This will reduce the surface area for tests and let us focus on the committed apps for the transition

Work continues on the app:// to chrome:// transition New bugs:

  • Bug 1263308 - [fxos-transition] Gaia Debug Profiles don't work


  • On hold whilst I work on other projects/bugs (Was waiting for a more stable build)
  • Can't make the call as Vidyo is playing up - have a tablet on order


  • Settings app is now launchable via UtilityTray
  • Fixed Wifi panel
  • Working on fixing Date Time panel (does anybody know if window.navigator.mozTime has been removed?) 1263855
  • Should we remove all the panels that are not valid anymore? Who is the right person to choose which ones?


issues with cron not building correctly even though the manual run of scripts is working fine. Not sure why... Guess I'm going to have to run my script manually to kick off builds in the morning... I will have more consistent results here : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13JUnmRHzXq55uoVh-A1yJVPefEkmHVVS9tRRUgwU6Fw/edit?pli=1#gid=184385983 to do :

  • daily testing : (currently making a build)
  • make a flame build as a one off just to make sure there's no build issues.

Round Table

  • alberto asked which panels we should remove from Settings out of those that aren't working
    • Keep them for now and see if community can help fix things
    • Open question as to which services (Accounts, Sync etc.) Mozilla will continue to support
  • fabrice asked what he can work on in Gecko to unblock front end work
    • bug with remote attribute causing white layer when keyboard used
    • replacing system messages with chrome events
    • (estimating API removals)
    • Would like to do as much as possible on mozilla-central after TV branch rather than pine to reduce the amount we have to merge back in
  • Valentin asked where community can get builds
    • We can't distribute full aries and flame builds but you can download a blob-free build using the B2G installer addon
    • Naoki points out there's a current blocker on all builds on taskcluster due to GCC version mismatch
  • Thanks to alberto for merging master into kanikani every Friday
  • Gregor will merge mozilla-central into pine when Alex's patch lands
