Firefox 33.0b3 (nthomas)

100% unicorns and rainbows, not a single failure.

Firefox 32.0.1

Firefox 33.0b4 (bhearsum)

  • b-linux64-hp-0032 failed in the linux build - asked for 12G, got 13.4G, failed in make package. Lots of fallout in linux64 repacks, eventually rescued itself. Repacks rebuilt where necessary (1,2,4,7,8,9/10 linux64).

Action items

  • Hal to update standing agenda to include "Most Wanted Bugs"

Most Wanted bugs


  • Build a short list of "most wanted" release bugs to be fixed, and track in the section above
    • take as input to sprint planning meeting
  • timezones proposals: mgerva is never around for the manual part of the releases (and owes the rest of the group too many beers). What about we have a release duty based on tz. Some ideas:
    • timezone based release duty, Europe takes care of all the issue happening during European morning hours and hands it over to east coast, east cost => pacific coast => New Zealand => Europe, => ... ?
    • europe to follow european relman schedule for important releases ?
    • any other ideas?
  • (nthomas) bumping staging configs in release runner, so they stay in sync with templates ?
  • (catlee) updated release timeline & bottlenecks
  • (catlee) promoting existing builds vs. building separate release builds
