Projects and Teams

  • Content Isolation - Securing child processes and general hardening work.
  • IPC / Child processes - Maintenance and improvements to Mozilla's IPC communication layer and process model. Note similar development takes place under the DOM team. Platform Integration tends to center on platform specific issues.
  • Install and Update - Client side development of stand-alone installs and internal update logic for Firefox and beyond.
  • Widget - Maintenance of the native windowing support layer in Gecko.
  • Legacy Plugins - Maintaining Firefox support for the Flash plugin, which will be removed at the end of 2019.

Development management

Cycle tracking

  • Match up with release cycles, no open ended development
  • The idea is to pick enough bugs to fill a release cycle
  • Limits the amount of work people have on their plate
  • Each cycle has polish bugs mixed in in addition to normal bug work

Priority field as a classification

  • p1 - serious bugs, show stoppers, release blockers
  • p2 - general bugs, really want to fix, easy to reproduce
  • p3 - corner case bugs, low occurrence, hard to reproduce, polish bugs, non-breaking
  • p5 - future, fix optional, community, good first bug
