Mobile/Fennec Automation

< Mobile

Fennec Automation

In developing Fennec, we need to leverage all the work done for Firefox. As an initial step, we will be porting all the automation that buildbot runs on Firefox and we will run it on Fennec.

There are a lot of new variables as we have non standard devices to test on, tests and tools which don't exist or are invalid in the mobile environment and code which needs to be updated to support a new product and environment.

Below is a table outlining what is needed and where we are. Below the table is a log of actions which is intended for people to see what has been done and when if they want more details about a specific item.
