Last Weeks Action Items

  • [DONE] [Cosmin]: Prepare a proposal for the TPS libraries needed from our mozmill-tests repository

Github blockers: Cannot delete workspace problem on Windows:


  • TBD

Goals Overview

Project Updates

Puppet for Mozmill CI (Henrik, Andreea, Andrei)

  • Current goal status:
    • Patch for adding the mozauto user and enabling the X environmnet has been landed for Ubuntu. A kickstart works like a charm and the machine directly boots into our os wide environment. Testing and additions for OS X upcoming.
    • Started work on the Java and Flash player updates.
    • Henrik will also concentrate on other requirements for Jenkins machines (git, virtualenv, pip package mirroring, ...)
  • Notes
    • TBD

TPS continuous integration (Henrik, Cosmin)

Automation of important tests for Desktop QA (Daniel, Mihaela)

  • Current goal status:
    • Geolocation tests are under review
  • Notes
    • TPS tests were reprioritized and scheduled for Q3

Automation Trainings (Andreea, Cosmin)

  • Current goal status:
    • Completed
  • Notes
    • Received feedback, we will try to accommodate the sessions in different week days and to follow up more with the contributors
    • Also we might want to consider live sessions

Mozmill for Marionette (Andrei, Andreea)

  • Current goal status:
    • bug 1023790 - Enhance manifestparser for manifest files to provide a "parent" link
      • There's a problem I'm now facing with inherited DEFAULT values. Since we're passing a path for server-root, the path is relative to the master manifest.ini file... not sure how to solve this.
    • bug 754847 - Replace local httpd.js web server with wptserve
      • There is a functional patch, but we're blocked by bug 1023790. We can skip this dependency and for dev purposes always pass in --server-root=%path% as a cli option.
    • bug 1028856 - Prepare mozmill-tests for the new webserver
      • This will require relative small changes (mostly set the server root on the main manifest file) + small changes in a few tests (where the folder was declared differently).
  • Notes
    • TBD


  • Mozmill (Henrik)
    • No updates
  • WebRTC (Nils)
    • B2G tests are hopefully moving from virtual machines to real hardware machines to improve problems related to the speed of the emulator on the virtual machines
    • We will hopefully soon have support for including loopback in ICE for testing purpose
    • It is confirmed now that IPC/e10s code occasionally hands out ports twice
