  • Releng tasks
    • binaries signed automatically

  1. Has any testing been done with invalid certificates?
    Brian: I haven't started yet.
    Chris: Releng would like to turn testing of invalid certificates on for one of Brian's branches.
    Brian: You can use the elm branch.
  2. How can we build and run the tests locally?
    Brian: We can update the service to generate the keys. May need a special build option (mozconfig) to auto insert registry info from service (for try builds for ex)
