Blocker Report

Since 1.9.1 branch ... 2009-03-24-blocker-report.png

Past 2 weeks ... 2009-03-24-blocker-report-detail.png

[ Platform Blocker Queries | Front End Blocker Queries ]


  • blocker rate still not decreasing, despite confidence
  • take rate seems to be dropping (this is good!)
  • feels like there's a growing number of unmanaged blockers that we're not addressing (outside of front-end, graphics, layout, content, and JS; think NSS, Core:General, etc)

The Breakdown

Browser / Front End

  • Polish update: Firefox is 49% shiny (+2% over last week)
    • Thanks go to: ehsan, rstrong, mstange, Ori Avtalion, Atsushi Sakai, and Dao (3)

Layout 1.9.1 Update

  • Layout
    • 6 blockers

Security Reviews

Still outstanding / to be scheduled

  • native JSON
  • DNS prefetching

Booked but not yet completed

  • localStorage (today)

Tree Management

  • Crash stacks for tests:
  • Run unit tests on packaged builds bug 421611, bug 383136
    • Build config bits are done
  • Started pulling together results from the Rando-Orange effort last night. It's going to be prettier but a preview is here: User:Ctalbert:Rando-Orange
    • Should I start filing bugs for items without bugs (I tend to think no)
    • Should I start adding the [orange] whiteboard flag to existing bugs that I encountered and that were encountered on tinderbox, but don't happen to have the flag? (I tend to think yes).


  • Consider localStorage feature land on 1.9.1, bug 422526
  • Nick Nethercote will be doing a Valgrind brown bag presentation today
  • Platform planning is ongoing. If there are items that you'd like to work on and want to communicate, please make sure to coordinate with the module owners and leads. Also, watch for dev.planning threads (such as this one ) as dev.planning is where features/work items will be discussed.
  • XULRunner nightlies for 1.9.1 and/or mozilla-central? bug 445191
    • Needed for binary extension development
    • Can we get an eta?
  • Planning worksheets thoughts (bsmedberg):
    • Some big-ticket items: XBL2, compositor, OOP plugins
    • But not process-per-tab...
    • How far out is 1.9.2? The planning worksheets make it hard to know when any particular item might be done.
    • Other than frameGC/refcounting and XBL2, is there other large/architectural work that should be focused on? Additional wrapper/xpconnect sanity?
  • Tryserver overload every afternoon: is there a plan to get more slaves (especially Windows) and/or combine the slave pool with the main tree?
