Video for today's meeting<video controls="controls">
Bear writes in, "given how much trouble/pain tinderbox has been these last days/week, I think the following should become Friends of the Tree:
- nthomas - he pointed us in the direction that it might be old build data causing an issue
- rhelmer - for diving into old crufty tinderbox code to fix load/scaling issues that he found after getting profile data of tinderbox
- justdave - for enabling and being soo helpful in allowing rhelmer to do what he did
And from John O'Duinn,
- jlazaro and henry and jabba in IT for using putty knives to open up mac minis and do RAM upgrades. They upgraded 81 mac minis in a week, doing batches at a time, so no downtime was needed. This need came up recently for OSX10.6 64bit build symbols. Super fast (and very tricky) work, thank you.

Status Updates By Team
- QA Org Highlights
- Browser Technologies
- Weave 1.4.4 tested and shipped to AMO in 2 1/2 hours
- Desktop Firefox
- Testday completed Friday covering Firefox Sync, TabCandy and Mozmill. 34 bugs reported.
- QA Services
- Tomcat sent out request to nightly testers to join a mailing list to better inform testers on the current issues and test focus for Firefox nightly builds.
Automation & Tools
- Almost completed a formal Tools staging area setup which will help us turn around new test frameworks and talos suites more efficiently
- CrossWeave found several good sync bugs last week, working with the Sync team to formalize the interactions they'd like to see from that tool
- We have an early profile management tool completed in alpha. It's currently undergoing very focused usability and UI testing - ping ctalbert or jgriffin if you'd like a link to the tool. We will go to a public alpha once we finalize the UI this week.
- We also released Mozmill 1.4.2 beta 4 last week.
- We did a demo of Bug Hunter - our automatic crash reproduction tool last week. It's currently finding many crashes and we're ensuring bugs are filed against those.
- More notes are here.
- Next Firefox 4 Beta Arrives, Now With Multi-touch
- Firefox 4 Beta 3 Adds Windows 7 Multitouch Support
- Firefox 4: Now With Multitouch
- Firefox 4 hits third beta stage, gets touchy-feely with Windows 7
- Firefox 4 beta 3 brings JS math optimization and multitouch
- Lots of movement on Firefox 4 documentation the past week.
- Please be sure to add the
dev-doc-neededkeyword to any bugs that may impact documentation, even if they're not fixed yet!
- The metrics team is currently collecting logs for our production Hadoop and Hbase cluster inside HIVE. More info at http://bit.ly/hive_flume
- Mozilla properties can now import their logs in near real-time inside HIVE and query using HQL (SQL'ish language)
- HIVE can be used for querying the log data thereby improving our ability to make decisions based on data.
- It's a work in progress, data won't be lost but might not work as intended on first attempt.
- Contact us if you would like to import your data.
- A number of refinements to the Web Console landed on trunk in time for Firefox 4 beta 4.
- Good progress has been made on many aspects of the new Inspector tool. Expect to see a much nicer Inspector in beta 5.
