QA

Current Status - Desktop

  • 17b6 pending update sign-off, targeting ship by EOD today
  • Targeting sign-off of 17rc, 10.0.11esr, and 17.0esr by early morning Tuesday (1 night of testing each)

Outstanding Issues/Concerns - Desktop

  • Slightly concerned that doing 3 releases in one day might be a bit tight, does not give much room for error. Can we have a contingency in our back pocket that it's "okay" to ship 17esr on Wednesday if necessary?

Outstanding Issues/Concerns - Mobile

  • bug 793053 Android product announcements have not been tested. This was a feature that was expected to ship in Fx 17. The UI is present the staging/live server to create and deliver the announcements has not been spun up. QA has a concern that this will get enabled without testing. <=== this is a non issue for Fx17. We have the HW we need for testing for Fx18 Beta. Status meeting scheduled for today @ 11:30AM Pacific: https://etherpad.mozilla.org/productannouncements
  • ARMv6 builds are functionally complete. QA notes that the trunk has much better performance than on Fx 17.

We'd like to see some data around the effectiveness of CTP. Anecdotal evidence showed that users just continuously clicked to play rather than updating. We'd like to see if we are indeed getting better uptake of secure versions.
