Project Status

Desktop Firefox (Juan)

  • Fx4:
    • Beta 10: Code freeze ETA (Friday); Builds on the following Monday.

  • Code freeze was yesterday, 1/18, but several blockers are not in yet.

  • Builds will be created once code freeze has stuck, probably on Thursday afternoon or Friday.
  • Will need people resources on either Friday or Monday, depending on when builds are made.
  • Beta is scheduled for 1/26, next Wednesday. If necessary, that will slip a day.

QA Services (Marcia)

  • Meetups/Events
    • Marcia attending Drumbeat San Diego event. Conference call with event coordinator today to discuss presentation
  • Community Planning
  • Video Work
  • Tomcat
    • Running TopSite Tests and filling bugs (like bug 627015 - Triaging Crash Reports etc
    • Working on CeBIT Stuff
  • Accessibility:
    • Things are continuing to work out with bug 498015 and dependent hard blockers. Not all of it will be in beta 10, but we're continuing to get stuff through reviews. This is the major thing left to do right now.
    • bug 622495, the alerts that weren't spoken by screen readers any more, are fixed and will be working in beta 10.
    • We've made a decision to document in our voluntary product accessibility template for Firefox 4 that Tab Candy/Panorama won't be accessible and that we may get to a better state in either a maintenance release or the next release after FX4. There is a general idea and a good first patch, but no time and some higher priority stuff to do that prevents this from getting properly done right now. But since this is not critical to Firefox usage in general, we can get away with Panorama currently not being accessible to screen reader users.

Test Automation (Henrik)

  • General
  • Mozmill
    • Mozmill 1.5.2 release targeted for beginning of next week
    • After the release Mozmill test results will be re-enabled for Tinderbox
  • Project updates
    • Mozmill Crowd 0.1 has been released (another tiny v0.1.1 release has to be released to make it easier for localizers to work with)
    • Fixes for a couple of test failures (close to zero on default, except for Linux)
