    • maja_zf working on mozharness script(s) to run firefox_media_tests in buildbot + preliminary work to move the tests into m-c
    • maja_zf improved ad detection on YouTube for firefox-media-tests, which fixes our top intermittent failure for long-running playback tests. Still need to tweak how video stalls are detected

Channel Status

Release (Fx 40)(Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Ioana/Kevin)

  • 40.0.3 release coming tomorrow (there probably will be another build), mostly for two security bugs and some ride-alongs.

Beta (Fx41) (Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Ioana/Kevin)

  • Once again, stability looks really good
  • We need to investigate if we fix async plugin init or need to turn it off - if the latter, we run into the issue that e10s disables it in nightly and dev edition.

Aurora (Fx 42) (Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Ioana/Kevin)

Nightly (Fx 43) (Desktop - KaiRo Mobile - Ioana/Kevin)

ESR (Fx 38.2.0)


Automation (whimboo)

  • Last week we had to release Mozmill because of add-on breakage due to add-on signing. All works fine again for Firefox 40.
  • Our publishing of test results to Treeherder works great with nearly no emails to the mozmill-ci mailing list anymore. It also makes retriggereing of builds easy enough. See the results of the release builds from today:
  • Funsize (new update generation process) broke our update tests about 1.5 weeks ago. A fix has been landed and staging is already running update tests. production will follow tomorrow after all releases have been tested.
  • Work is ongoing to make test execution and reporting to treeherder more stable. Means we convert our custom runner scripts to mozharness, which should hopefully not take that long
  • We are planning to reduce our infrastructure by utilizing TaskCluster for our tests. It looks like that we should first land our tests in m-c first, which will make things way easier due to already existent scripts and configs
