  • Meetups
    • Mountain View WebQA Meetup in the works for September - stay tuned.

    • Tomcat and Marcia got bugs filed for new crashes introduced in B3 thanks to chofmann's helpful report which will eventually become part of crash-stats.
  • Community Planning
    • QMO 3 Meetings planned for the QA Work Week in September
    • Please add your blog link to if you have not already done so. File a bug under QMO to get this done.
  • Video Work
    • Parts of International Promo video will be reshot during work week with the soccer ball and integrated into the main video.
      • Any remote folks that want to work on team videos while they are here will need to coordinate time with Rainer. Rainer indicated he would like to have a set time in the afternoon to work on these. More info to come after work week schedule is flushed out.

    • FX4
      • Beta4 will most likely contain bug 587938 which renders pages like Facebook unusable. We have a reviewed and approved fix which will land on nightlies hopefully as soon as the tree clears from the recent downtime, but unless there's a build3 of beta4 which will then take this one as a ride-along, this will only be in beta 5.
