QA Services Team Meeting

  • September 8, 2010
  • Attendees: aakashd, tchung, stephend, juanb, naoki, tomcat, marco, marcia and matt

Discussion Items

Project Status

CrashKill [tomcat/marcia]

  • CrashKill meeting on 9/7 was not held due to the fact that both chofmann and laura could not attend. Mail sent to chofmann to see if we can reschedule as he sent mail about filing bugs that were old crashes that have resurfaced in new releases.
  • Filing bugs for Topcrashers on all supported branches

Accessibility Status Update [marco]

  • FX 4
    • Everything is blocked by bug 591874. We do have two approaches with Khuey and Alex Surkov are pursuing in parallel, but it may still be turning out that these are both too fragile, and that we'll need to do some massive evangelism for FX4 for this change to be dealt with on the AT (and possibly other software) sides.
    • Also work being done on bug 592913 to compensate for some things that bug 591874, if not fixed, may not cover, on an API level.
    • All of this endangers some of the planned HTML5 work, but can't be helped. The new input types work on a basic level, so pressure isn't immensely high, but just moderate.
  • FX3.6
    • 3.6.9 was released with two accessibility fixes, and 3.6.10 already contains 1 fix for crash bug 583952.
