    • Documentation!
  • Need help getting the new-user registration flow back up on browserid-tests, against and, using BIDPOM.
  • Stalled builds are back, and now we have the backup plugin there's a new side-effect: the plugin prepares Jenkins for shutdown before a backup, but waits for all jobs to complete (and enforces 'quiet node' after waiting 2 hours). If there are stalled jobs then Jenkins is essentially doing nothing until the jobs are aborted. I think we may need to investigate using the pytest-timeout plugin, however it currently clashes with pytest-mozwebqa. For now I have re-enabled abort for and
  • After investigating the above, I noticed that the backups were failing. This was due to the drive they are backed up to not being mounted. I have fixed this, but it should be a buildmaster responsibility to ensure backups are successful.
  • There seems to still be confusion over implicit/explicit timeouts with WebDriver and Selenium Grid timeouts. The former are important to understand when writing tests. How can we improve this situation? implicit & explicit wait
  • We still need (per our Q2 goals) 3 testdays -- what's yours going to be on, and when? :-)
    • Remember, they don't have to be on Friday...
  • Devices update:
    • Softvision should be able to get what they need, per Bob
    • for the rest of us: guideline is "as many devices as the team reasonably needs"
      • for B2G: plan to run on the reference phones, but can use what we have now (Galaxy S II) to get automation in place
      • also a recommendation for native fennec:
        • just run on Samsung Nexus S
  • How are we doing with investigating performance testing/tools/metrics we need to measure?
