Product Status Updates (voice updates)

Firefox Desktop

Speaker Location: toronto (johnath)

  • Stub Installer work progressing. UI interaction build made available on 8/6. Functional build this week. We'll QA and release, possibly with a funnelcake study, when it's ready (doesn't ride trains.)
  • HiDPI work for retina Macs well underway. Try server build at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=674373 that makes text really pretty.
  • These notes shamelessly cribbed from the Wednesday product coordination call, maybe you should attend!

Firefox OS

Speaker Location: Dietrich

The team is focused on P1 priorities and has started daily B2G and Gaia triage sessions to close bugs and reduce scope to essential v1 requirements. Follow along on Lawrence's blocker dashboard.

  • Gaia: New UI pieces: overlays for Scanning, No Photos, No SD Card messages, the date/time picker landed, some Email visual design implementation, carrier name shows in utility tray, image picker in Contacts. Lots of localization work and updates to new permissions system landing. Flux in requirements for consumption control and first-run experience is ongoing risk.
  • Platform: Most of cell broadcast is finished. More work in permissions, camera, headset, and automatic updates continue to land.
  • Security: Existing permission whitelist is being replaced with proper permission checks and prompts. Need to lock down permissions and app data jars. App signing for privileged apps - at risk.
  • Release Coordinators: Blocked on device availability for dogfooding as well as FOTA updates that don't wipe user data
  • Release Engineering: Repo layouts for developers on github. Resolved some contract and security access questions which impact release mechanics. Need information from agal on contractual details of how updates are to be served.
  • L10n: AMO & Marketplace: es 100%, pt-BR 71%; Persona: es 100%, pt-BR 100%.
  • QA: Test coverage metrics on daily smoke tests available, working with A-team to publish daily manifests so TEF can test daily builds. Smoke test metrics are still averaging about 26% failures and Blocking-Basecamp+ count is high.
  • Tools and Automation: Mochitests and WebAPI tests running per-commit to m-c and getting triaged 3x week.

Grow Mozilla

Speaker Location: San Francisco

  • Kicking off a weekly Grow Mozilla update! As a reminder, Grow Mozilla helps us achieve our ambitious goals by bringing new people into the project, increasing skills of community members and expanding our culture as we grow larger.
  • MozCamp EU: We are currently in the process of sending out attendance and session acceptance notifications to paid staff and booking volunteer travel. Note: We are still evaluating some proposals and everyone should be notified of their status by end of week.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation.
