Round Table

  • Unit tests won't run in B2G Desktop
  • 1.5 planning
  • [djf] We're dealing with 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 at this point. How do we stay sane? How do Gecko and Firefox engineers deal with this rapid release cycle? Can we really be working on 1.4 features while still having 1.2 blockers?
  • Anthony: War on intermittents. What should we do?
    • Instructions to have more console logs
    • Developers education/best practices, specially with timing issues, asynchronous.
    • Look at Firefox desktop of course cause they have years of experience
    • Run tests slowly locally, maybe emulator
