Meeting Details

Please see our public calendar for all upcoming events and meetings.

Our regular team meeting occurs every Thursday @ 9am Pacific

Action Items / Takeaways from Last Week

  • Takeways:
    • Work week ideas
  • Action Items:
    • Adi: having trouble getting our new qa-sel hooked up - will find a person from IT to assist
    • Zac: will update the documentation for mozwebqa-test-templates to point to pytest-mozwebqa 1.0
    • Matt: schedule a meeting about our Contributor on-boarding process [done]
    • Entire team - update the workweek etherpad -

Discussion Items / Updates

  • How are we doing with investigating performance testing/tools/metrics we need to measure?
  • Recent regression in Jenkins caused multi-configuration jobs to disappear - should we consider using LTS?
    • Stephen switched us to LTS but we're seeing issues, probably due to our jobs being adjusted for running on latest. I believe Stephen is currently switching back to 1.472. Still worth discussing if LTS is suitable.
      • Not yet; might do it later today, but still pondering.
  • Jenkins migration to new server is ready. Let's schedule it!
    • This was (almost) done today. It turned out that we don't have anywhere to put the current Jenkins box on the network. Stephen is raising a bug for this. The new Jenkins box is probably spinning around trying to replace the current one, so may need someone to revert the DHCP changes for now.
  • Build retention for Jenkins is now 100 builds (should be more than enough, but drastically less than before)
  • Update on known Selenium issues (focus and permission)
    • Focus issue is being investigated. Setting focusmanager.testmode solves some of our issues but disables native events. I believe the ultimate strategy is to replace native events with hooking directly into Firefox to simulate native events. This is probably a few months away at best.
    • Permission issue may be fixed in Firefox 16 (current Nightly) as it could not be replicated. Investigation is ongoing.
    • The workaround described here works for AMO/Paypal. Just add the following to the command line: --firefoxpref='{"capability.policy.default.HTMLDocument.compatMode":"allAccess", "capability.policy.default.Window.pageXOffset":"allAccess", "capability.policy.default.Window.pageYOffset":"allAccess", "capability.policy.default.Window.frameElement":"allAccess", "capability.policy.default.Window.mozInnerScreenY":"allAccess", "capability.policy.default.Window.mozInnerScreenX":"allAccess"}'
  • Brief B2G update - request for help
  • Blog is up at, and has tweeted the 3 posts
    • Thanks so much, Zac!
  • We're now clearing workspaces (again), which we think helps with the git stuck-lock issue:
  • We should also look into
  • On Q3 goals: take Bob's advice to heart: 3 or 4 goals, max (survival/deep-focus mode)
    • And on joint goals: let's make sure we make them truly shared (other owner accountable)
