Tree Management

  • pooling of talos slaves started last week, continuing this week
    • machines will no longer be tied to one branch; let us know if you see any problems on dev dashboard, graphserver, etc. As talos machines become pooled, Tinderbox columns will be consolidated, not have machine name.
    • converted firefox3.0 talos last Thursday
    • will need to migrate the other existing talos slaves to the pool at some point. when's the best time?
    • we expect this will reduce talos wait times significantly
  • more slaves coming online for tryserver
  • mobile tryserver work progressing
  • signing machine and mobile infrastructure going offline 5th June for office move.


  • How many people are running Windows 7?
    • you can get the RC for free
    • it runs in VMWare & Parallels as if it were Windows Vista, and VirtualBox as if it were Linux
  • QA will concentrate testing in the following areas during RC1 testing:
    • Video performance and Controls, Geolocation, Session Restore, Tabbed Browsing, Drag and drop functionality, Clear history/ private browsing/ forget this site, topsites layout and performance, windows 7 adhoc testing. Please suggest any other broad regression areas here.
    • Looks like session store is cut for 3.5?
  • Focused test day for everyone on RC1? There has been some talk about having everyone (dev, mktg?, QA, etc) take some time out to really beat on RC1. I am happy to help organize. Thoughts? [timr]
