Roundtable and Q&A

  • Release Pipeline next steps - Laura's proposal from the list:
    • Since we have a) Client support for Go-Faster add-ons landing next

week-ish and b) Hello implemented as an add-on, we can start building and shipping Hello on the regular trains that way. This would be almost exactly how we treat pdf.js and Shumway. This way we have a system add-on, but we're not shipping it any faster than usual, and can rely on the normal build, test, l10n, and update mechanisms. This is a way to stage the approach.

    • During q3, we build some kind of protoype CI pipeline for shipping

Hello more frequently. Take an experimental approach. We don't need to get it working for all channels, or all OSes, or shipped to end users. We try using taskcluster and just doing builds for Linux, as a starting point, since that's probably the easiest.

  • Shipping Hello as an addon in trains - which pieces need to go in which trains?
  • Other topics?
