    • We need to run our media tests on Windows 32 bit hardware, and we need to run Windows 64 binaries on 64-bit hardware. Right now, we only run 32-bit windows on 64-bit hardware.

Automation (whimboo)

  • Update tests were not run due to RelEng changes without informing us (see )
  • Push of mozharness changes is blocked by Releng (missing revision id in pulse messages) - we will have a meeting later today and hopefully can get this fixed soon - if that is not possible we might not be able to test localized builds anymore
  • We most likely want to replace ondemand update tests with Marionette driven tests to finally get rid of Mozmill - talking with Robert and Florin at the moment)
