QA Updates

  • working on poptarts this week
  • last week
    • participated in MoCo onsite
      • very productive sessions, esp. module owners && new UX keywords
      • unstuck a few things; recruited a few volunteers to look at tb3 blockers
    • worked on slimming down daily triage tasks
    • driving work
  • goals for this week
    • close out compact message header discussion
    • security review planning
    • calendar organizational work
    • get back on the 1-hour-a-day code review track
  • Lots of bug triaging, JS assertions in mail.
  • Reviews & Triage
  • Few days holiday.
  • Attended the test day. Fixed crash bug 489779 that was found during the day (send in background/later combination).
  • Activity Manager
    • bug 489588 Hooked up activity manager events and processes to the status bar.
  • Send in background bug 440794
    • Did a couple of patches reworking the notification system, so that hopefully will have something sane to be able to hook up automatic retry etc. Still needs some work to refine it.
    • Almost have shutdown protection working for the case where we don't get quit-application-requested.
  • Content Policy
    • bug 480674 Formulate content policy for Audio/Video tags
      • Existing policy is adequate, except need to reword "Remote Images" to "Remote Content" - supplied patch for the rewording.
    • What's new page/non-message pane content display: bug 374578/bug 466527 Revised the patch for review.
  • Leaks
    • We're still not (quite) in a position to tidy up our leak output in mailnews (due to bug 384339, then bug 438922 can be checked in).
    • However, took a brief look at leaks in xpcshell unit tests - Fixed some leaks due to the tests themselves bug 490468, and fixed one in address book import bug 490602.
    • Remaining leaks look minor or possible problems with how the tests tidy themselves up (or don't). Probably will schedule 1 day post b3 to take another look at resolving these.
  • Old patch submission (these had been sitting in my mq for a while):
    • bug 490972 Change "string" attributes to "ACString" in nsIImapUrl which should save on copies/allocations (hence help perf).
    • bug 490969 Some random header include tidy up to reduce size of rebuilds when idl/headers change.

I return from my trip to Azerbaijan on Thursday night, but with 12 hours of jet lag and life to catch up with, it may be awhile before I return to normal. I've been working on adding a post-bayes filter context under bug 198100, which will allow filtering on junk characteristics. At the same time I'm hoping to provide a body filter capability to locally-stored IMAP in the same patch. This is the last major feature that I hope to land before b3. As I look at my assign list, I still have a number of minor non-blocking bugs in areas that I work in that I want to try to land in TB3. But I will also want to mix in some b3 blockers. Anyone who is familiar with my capabilities should feel free to suggest specific blockers for me to investigate.
