Verification Process - in test suite check..

  1. Check the landed changeset if a test for an in-tree test suite is included

    1. [YES] Make sure that the flag is set to in-testsuite+ when the test gets landed
    2. [NO] Ensure that the flag is set to in-testsuite-
  3. Is an automated test under a QA driven test framework necessary?
    1. [YES] Set the in-qa-testsuite? flag for e.g. Henrik Skupin, and ask if it is possible to add this as a test to e.g. Mozmill for Firefox Desktop / Robocop for Firefox Mobile
    2. [No] Leave this flag alone.
  4. QA automation folks accept the creation of an automated test?
    1. [YES] Make sure that the flag is set to in-qa-testsuite+ when the test gets landed

Q3 Goals


Channel Status

== Release (Fx30) (Desktop Tracy Mobile Kevin)

Beta (Fx 31) ( Desktop -Anthony/Liz Mobile - Aaron/Kevin )

  • GGC is crashing too much and will be deactivated in b9
  • GFX blocklist (bug 988549)
  • Fixes in b8 make PushClipsToDT crashes vanish! Probably big win on desktop and Android.
    • This is probably between bug 1028491and bug 1034584

Aurora (Fx 32) (Desktop Juan/Kamil Mobile - Aaron/Kevin)

  • Nyet

=== Nightly (Fx 33)(Tracy/Kevin)

  • Nothing to mention

ESR (Fx 24.7 + Fx 31)

  • [Florin] Does the Smoke suite for 31 ESR branch need updating (compared to 24)? (mwobensmith: Yes)


  • Ongoing pkix testing
  • Fixed bug verification


  • Puppet:
    • Remaining issues with proxies for puppet agent have finally been fixed
    • Java installation is also done for CI slaves
    • Working on Flash now
  • TPS
    • About to land the patch for fxa-python-client which enables us to run concurrent jobs
    • Figuring out how to supply the tps environment to slaves (maybe we also create pre-configured ones)
  • Mozmill


  • Did lots of poking and analysis around stability issues on 31 beta
    • 3 areas of issues: GGC, GFX blocklist, experiments
