Shipping Celebration

What did we ship this month? Alternatively, what didn't we ship to spare the world the horror?

  • (peterbe) Socorro abandoned HBase (our own cluster) for AWS S3 to store all crashes
    • (note: peterbe had nothing to do with this work but proud of his colleagues)
  • (Osmose) Fundraising snippets on about:home of all kinds, in cooperation with Mofo (thecount, andreawood, gvn, and more!)
  • (craigcook) Recent mozilla.org stuff:
  • (craigcook) Migrated quality.mozilla.org (QMO) to our single shared WordPress instance (formerly a standalone blog) with a new theme. https://quality.mozilla.org (props to pragmatic)
  • (erikrose) peep 2.0 shipped!
  • (peterbe, not on vidyo due to broadband) ALL archived videos on air.mozilla.org have been extracted into 10-20 JPEGs to be used as icons instead of uploaded logos.
  • (erikrose) You can add things to Firefox's context menu.

Open-Source Citizenship

Any updates with our libraries or with libraries we use? Anyone looking for help with a library they maintain?

  • (willkg) (unspoken update) I stepped down as maintainer of ElasticUtils and deprecated the project. If you're using it, consider switching to elasticsearch-dsl (http://elasticsearch-dsl.readthedocs.org/en/latest/). We hang out on #elasticsearch on irc.mozilla.org if you want to drop by and talk about it.
