Development Updates

Fx/TB + Fx

Major Update

  • QA found a bug in update history that required a fix on the client side, so we decided to fix it in and push the major update out after the releases.
  • Target release date depends on, but the plan is to do it 1-2 weeks after. Release

  • Code freeze was scheduled for today 1/29, but we still have 3 critical blockers that we need fixed (target: 1/31 - 2/1)
  • Vista changes are scheduled to land on Trunk today, and after some bake time and QA testing, we plan to land them on the branch later this week (target: 1/31 - 2/1)
  • If all goes well, we should have RC builds later this week (target: 2/1 - 2/2)
  • Tentative release date TBD (depends on how soon the remaining blockers land and on QA testing)... but if all goes well, we might be able to hit 2/15.

TB 2.0

  • Thunderbird 2 Beta 2 was released last Wednesday!
  • Over 100,000 folks are using beta 2 since the release
  • Many thanks to Rob, Marcia, Tomcat, mcow, Tim, Tony, Bob and the rest of the QA team for their help.
  • Final looks on track for an early March release. Will sync up with build and QA again to figure out available release windows.

  • QA vmware migrations
  • Justdave in training
  • AUS2 staged in MPT

  • We've moved trunk Mac builds over to the new Intel Xserves (and are enjoying lower cycle times); no problems have been reported, so we'll be turning off the "shadow" PPC Xserves, and re-purposing them.
  • In general, lots of Tinderbox/hardware movement; we're working on getting more Macs available to Community projects, as well as updating the SeaMonkey Tinderboxen, so look for those in the next few weeks. Please feel free to hollar loudly if a Tinderbox is seemingly missing.
  • Stage migration will happen will after
  • As Justin mentioned, we're working through the off-hours Tinderbox support policy with IT; we'll have something concrete to announce next week.
  • labs version control has been setup; ping preed/file a bug to get access/set up an area for your labs project.


  • Test Execution
    • [jay, juan, tchung, most]
      • Tested major update scenarios including partner fallback testing for null updates
      • Bug verification
    • Thunderbird 2
      • Final Testing of Thunderbird 2 Beta 2. The Test Plan has results of testing. Performed Update Testing and Live Testing
    • Planning for Gran Paradiso test development. We are organizing the test plan and mechanisms for assigning people to test areas. [tchung, marcia, timr]
  • Tools and Infrastructure
    • We had a planning meeting in Toronto last week to discuss plans for the buildbot test infrastructure, for reporting results, for automating such things as the JS test suite and the Security regression tests. A couple of students from Seneca College joined us to talk about a litmus testing extension and how Test Days go from the community perspective. This was very insightful. [robcee, coop, bc, alice, tracy, timr]
    • The Buildbot test infrastructure is now working. The first test build ran through on Linux on Friday. The buildbot master is now running which is the key to rolling out tests onto this infrastructure. [robcee]
    • Litmus: Worked on fix reporting, adding test run searching. bug 358817 [coop]
    • Identified and fixed bugs in automation scripts. [bc]
    • Talked with CTuft about plan to test out backup again (previous backups were causing performance issues with processing) [jay]
    • Continued work on QMO setup. Created template pages and started adding content. Need to test the site and add more content over the coming weeks. [jay]
