   need symbols from partner release builds
   checklist of things that we will need to get done now that socorro ui moved to django.  Yay django!
   If you build your own custom builds, gonk/gecko on mac, I recommend not to do a repo sync.  There's some build issues that I ran into, which jlebar has now come across.
   [jsmith] Partner App Customization Round #1 Testing on 6/20 Build Finished for 1.1
   [jsmith & swaroopa] Simple Push Testing - exploratory & planning underway
   [nhirata] Leo Base Build update:
   v08e is where our releng base build is coming from : Bug 885556 
   v08j base build testing
   showing some issues, having said that it was announced so that we don't get too far behind; reported issues to leo
   [nhirata] master/1.2 build device testing:
   unagi showed most stable followed by hamachi.  leo device needs a bug to be back out, having said that we're suppose to get a different device from leo for 1.2 as far as I know.  Inari builds have issues of needing the android base to be upgraded in order to work right.
   Smoketesting continues on Leo and Unagi Devices
   Sanity check is being run on 1.1 Unagi for dogfooders and 1.2
   Usage regression in yesterday's 1.1 build:
   [jammink] leorun4 being co-ordinated; coverage ~60%
   keeping running nominations for critical bugs found during testrun
   [jammink] started testplan for Comms Apps for 1.2
   [jammink] starting testrun & certification (IOT) guides
   Compatibility Test Suite:
   Working on Battery Status/Geolocation exercisers and test cases
   Completing estimates on rest of Compatibility Test Suite areas
   Had discussion w/ A-Team about running Mochitest on-device (sanity-checking device builds, possible use for certification programs). Will explore virtual appliance-based solution to drive mochitests over adb; goal is something simple enough that 3rd party testing houses can run.

   lots of deployments: yahoo alias fix, gmail bigtent, moz ldap support, trains
   b2g yahoo acct fix going live monday (doesn't affect marketplace)

   Heka testing is going really well. V0.3 is almost ready for release to community and our internal customers
   SimplePush load testing starting up

Web (Stephen)

   B2G/Gaia testing:
   latest and greatest GitHub activity here:
   our tests are finding lots of bugs on master branch (about 1-2 a day) and some fairly major but lots of them are being uplifted onto v1-train before devs can fix - we will work on that pressure
   v1-train is stabilising a lot but we still see lots of b2g18 related crashes
   relating to crashes, qDOT is working on getting valgrind hooked up and running tests (including ours -- very slow execution time, though, at least 10x)
   developer and PM interest increasing, especially around on-device-specific test coverage, like Camera
   lots of stabilization work; doubled down on both master-on-device and desktop builds
   Gaia UI Tests are now on Cedar, using a separate manifest (look for Gu):
   we're using this to triage and shake out Marionette and test-stability issues, before greenlighting TBPL proper

Automation Development (Henrik, Dave)


   Fixed SMTP server credentials after recent new server deployment
   Temporarily unable to update testcase-data on due to bug 886621, which will be resolved in bug 889887
   Fixed a few issues preventing landing HTML report and fixes for running desktop tests against Travis CI, hoping to release a new version of the client tomorrow.
   Gaia UI tests are now running on Cedar branch (see Gu) they're failing at the moment, but we have a TBPL manifest with 31 tests we expect to pass consistantly. Hopefully this will be in use very soon.

   [nhirata] B2G reference phone of nexus?  Moz Gonk, Gecko, Gaia, Ril would all work there.   versus having to use partner gonk and flash gecko/gaia/com ril on top.  Would this make more sense in the b2g round table instead?
   Our internal PB has issues - consider checking your entry since there are many people who don't have their manager set correctly [marcia] -
   [bmoss] 1.0.1 vs. 1.1 vs. 1.2 b2g updates and phones
