Framework and Tools (Henrik)

Convert first sets of Mozmill tests to Marionette (bug 1119715)

  • Our plan is to convert tests for awesome bar and tabbed browsing - as stretched goal we also want to work on search tests
  • Finished prefs module and added Travis support
  • Discussion about how to name the repository - my proposal would be 'Firefox UI Tests"
  • Waiting for next marionette-client release to continue with window and tab handling patches

Run Marionette tests in Mozmill CI (bug 1119725)

  • No updates
    • We will not use the repository, will create a new one, but we want to continue with the environments
    • We'll get started with the update tests, will be written first in marionette
    • Maybe after update tests work fine we'll stop writing tests in mozmill and do it in marionette

Create Pulse notifications for update channel activities (bug 735184)

  • No updates from last week
  • Will have to create script to listen to all notifications and extract those for update channel activations
    • Do we have properties that are not included now in the notifications? will need to find
    • We want to allow multiple updates in a row and just verify in the end if we have the required version.
    • Right now at the update from beta 6 to beta 10 for example, we need to go through beta 8 (do the update from beta 6 to 8 and then from 8 to 10) and mozmill is failling at doing that.

  • In Progress:
    • bug 1088534 - Add a test to verify that basic Firefox operations work ok with the enabled complete theme or persona
