  • Major blocker on mozilla-central, all web permissions except full screen are broken. No permission prompt for e.g. geolocation and camera access. bug 1291466

  • Will need a new unit testing system
  • Need to try to keep code test friendly in the meantime

Round Table

Cyanogenmod base https://github.com/cm-b2g is broken, locales.xml no more needed & sync issues need to be fixed. Starting with the master branch

  • Need to update to CM 13 ? No, whole manifest needs a fix, sync fails.
  • Ask Alexandre Lissy what needs doing

Luca Working on documentation Trying to B2G OS compile for ZTE Open C Curious about localisation pipeline, does it still work?

  • Relied on Gaia build system which has seen a lot of changes
  • l10n should still work

krz37 Getting a better computer so hopefully building will be easier Then would like to help on apps Could we switch to a WebRTC based solution for meetings?

  • proposal: Jitsi Meet (www.meet.jit.si)

Open C - some contributors added an option to build directly for Open C without hacking a manifest
