    • Other spotchecks with l10n builds and update follow as usual
    • All other Tests were completed last week before build 5.
    • So far for Beta Feedback, we have so far no other regression report
  • Firefox 3.1 (tchung)
    • Ongoing testplan and testcases work
    • Dogfooding with JIT enabled. Crashes found but having issues with socorro reporting
    • Working on fleshing out tests for new CSS attributes in platform (background images, border radius, transforms, font-face, svg clip path etc)

Release Engineering

  • TB2.0.0.17 handed to QA earlier this week
  • slow progress on release automation on hg
  • slow progress on mobile automation



  • need timings on release dates as soon as you can
  • start thinking about what the Firefox 3.1 package will look like


  • it would be good to have a set of known issues and workarounds ready for when we ship Firefox 3.1
