  • Client integration (Mossop/rhelmer)
    • Hello has landed as a system add-on in Nightly. Congrats!
  • Build pipeline (JP/rhelmer/phrawzty)
    • Laura will set up follow up meeting (probably Thursday).
  • IdeaTown (nchapman)
    • Wrapping up first release to demo in Orlando.
    • Working through some privacy (read: legal) issues before we release to internal/vouched Mozillians.
    • Technically complete is best complete.
  • Updates (tarek)
  • We have a server-side (file storage) v1 ready for syncing the files catalog (==Kinto with file storage API).
  • Fennec (rnewman)
    • Looking into on-demand add-on installation.
    • Thinking about what we accomplish by importing back into mozilla-central.
    • Seemed to have settled on web localization.
    • Localization: we have 13 "key" locales, we're not sure what to do about updating for people outside those locales.
    • QA may be kind of ad hoc?

Roundtable and Q&A

  • (bsmedberg) replacing hotfixes with gofaster addons
    • "I'd like to propose that we use gofaster addons for all future "hotfixing" work, and rip out the current hotfix mechanism." (see email to gofaster ML) +1
  • (Axel) Should hello and pocket do the same thing? seems to diverge.
    • rhelmer says that file locations are good. Many stakeholders have interest following up on the code move in terms of ownership (back to pocket?) and APIs (over to webextensions?).
