Need To Know
(Release and system issues that may impact engineering this week.)
|Next Merge: January 25, 2021||Next Release: January 26, 2021|
|Central: 86||Aurora: 54||Beta: 85||Release: 84.0|
- 31b6 build 2 built on both Desktop & Mobile (build 1 canceled because of some tests failing)
- Both should be live today
- OMTC disabled in aurora but 3-30% regressions! Bug 1032831
Build Changes (gps)
(Build changes of which engineers should be aware.)
(Repo, test, and other information for engineers from the release engineering team.)
(System outages/upgrades and tree closures that impact engineering.)
(An opportunity to hear about status with the various quality programs that do not have a formal team structure.)
- No update.
- Overall numbers are still off mostly due to 3rd-party issues on desktop (bug 1023239, bug 988549, bug 883134).
- Aurora had a huge crash spike (bug 1031697) over the weekend: bug 1013587 was uplifted without its prerequisite bug 1013638. Another Sunday nightly build for Aurora was triggered after the backout to get people off the crashy builds as fast as possible.
(In <2 mins, what did your team accomplish last week, on what is your team working on this week, and on what, if anything, is your team blocked? No questions during the stand-ups. All questions should be asked during the roundtable.)
App Tools (prouget)
B2G Services (dougt)
Cloud Services (mmayo)
Developer Tools (robcee)
- WebIDL bindings infrastructure now largely done. 2 1/2 years in the making, lots of details to get right in lots of corners. Big shout out to the team who worked on this, including peterv, bz, khuey, bholley, mccr8, and efaust. Also a big shout out to the numerous people who helped convert code from using XPConnect to WebIDL, including dz, Ms2ger, ehsan, baku, bjacob, tbsaunde, and many many more (too many to name here).
- Old XPIDL based event generator is dead (bug 1031051). Everything is migrated to WebIDL.
- ServiceWorkers! Lots abuzz here, a few hackers met to hack on ServiceWorkers in SF last week. See  for details.

irc #planning Log From This Meeting
dveditz: blassey: why "janus"? blassey: roman god of time, space and safe passage blassey: why the change? apparently Speedy Gonzales is not considered to be culturally sensitive ... Mossop: Some webapps use [HTTP requests waiting longer than 5 minutes] as a push notification. Make an XHR request to your server, when it wants to tell the client something it responds
