Snappy Oct 11, 2012 Status (no meeting this week)


  • Gavin will write down Q4 frontend goal
  • Outreach with Twitter on bug 784920, twitter is causing sync layout which harm the browser when the tab is in the background
  • bug 792527 - bas to add Telemetry
  • CSS animation start jank - jeff/ehsan to ping david baron (bug 753139)
  • wlach to determine what time he has to work on Eideticker for desktop this quarter
    • wlach: still trying to determine this, hopefully will have a better estimate by next week. right now it's looking like eideticker-for-b2g will be consuming most of my attention for at least the next month. most of the base work is done, but it looks like there's still a considerable amount of work still to be done in automating the testing process and writing B2G-appropriate tests.
  • wlach to work with jaws to see if Camtasia Studio can be used a software-only capture solution for eideticker
    • wlach: Camtasia doesn't look like the right thing as it doesn't appear to be scriptable. Fraps ( might be more appropriate, need to look closer (it may only work with 3D accelerated games).
