QA Status/Topics

  • General QA
    • QA/Dev patch heads up discussion [timr]
      • bug 415498 – Some errors not displayed in Error Console when using addEventListener. Landing a patch like this should have given QA a bigger heads up since it improved the error reporting that we havent seen up to this point.
      • A few classes of bugs that might warrant extra heads up to or testing by QA:
        • Changing system level messaging (ex: logging and error messages)
        • Changing major look and feel (ex: adding/changing dialogs, changing themes)
        • Changing how we pass data into or out of FFx (ex: protocol handlers)
        • Changing the security policy. Changing or tightening policy can make unusual things break.
        • Changing a highly exposed area of code that could cause possible regressions.
    • RC1 Testplan is ready [tchung]
