Snappy July 26 Minutes


  • lmandel to speak with clint about scheduling work to setup Eideticker on desktop
    • Spoke with clint and this seems like a possibility, at the very least of a cart solution that is Windows only
    • If we are to proceed, we need a concrete test case for Eideticker and someone to own it and work with the A-Team to provide feedback and write the test
      • taras and benwa will take point from engineering
      • initial focus on tests like start-up, tab switching
      • initial tests to run on Windows, machines can live in Toronto

Fix cache - hurley, bbondy

Results from the past week
  • bbondy Devised plan and got feedback from various parties including the Necko team on bug 105843 - Cache lost if Mozilla crashes.
  • Starting work on bug 105843, first step is to add telemetry data to see how much the cache corruption reduction plan would help (bug 777328).
  • In bug 774146 landed and it gathered more telemetry data for the reason cache corruption happens, mostly it is as expected with the header being dirty. There are 3 other errors codes that happen < 1% of the time though that should be investigated more in the future.
