Notices / Schedule

  • Firefox team is at an offsite today

  • Next mozilla-central → mozilla-aurora source migration is August 16th
  • Goals should be getting locked down

Firefox Development

As mentioned above, Firefox team is offsite this week. Some of the things discussed include:

We'll try to vidyo in, but are likely to stay muted



  • We're trying an experiment of just using mozilla-inbound for landings (the benefits: daily regression resolution, rather than weekly; no need for someone to spend time merging). So for the next two weeks, everything JS is landing in mozilla-inbound, and the TraceMonkey repository is temporarily abandoned. When the two weeks are up we'll decide whether to return to TM or just use mozilla-inbound.

Stability Report

  • Bill McCloskey trying to tackle a set of GC related crashes. Instrumentation patch landed on the trunk last week.
