irc #planning Log From This Meeting

10:52 AM <KaiRo> lmandel: looks like I found the issue behind the gfx issues on beta, see https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1097321#c26
10:53 AM <KaiRo> and lsblakk ^^^
10:55 AM <lmandel> KaiRo: Good sleuthing.
10:56 AM <KaiRo> lmandel: luckily I just stumbled over bugmail of SoftVision verifying that bug that seems to have caused the issue ;-)
10:57 AM <KaiRo> and that got me thinking "hey, we did just land unblocking something that includes Intel stuff? wait a minute..." ;-)
11:00 AM <KaiRo> lsblakk: actually, 1) sheriffs/RyanVM can do a straight backout right away if we are sure enough, that doesn't even need Jeff, and 2) I'm actually reluctant to sign off 35.0b4 with this huge startup crash issue continued
11:00 AM <•lsblakk> ah, didn't see that it was a startup crash anywhere until now
11:00 AM <•lsblakk> in that case, i'm happy to take a backout and do a build 2
11:03 AM <overholt> cpeterson, did milan_ and I get disconnected?
11:03 AM <KaiRo> lsblakk: yes, took me a bit to realize as well, I'm definitely in favor of a build2 there.
11:04 AM <cpeterson> overholt: i don't see you guys on screen
11:04 AM <overholt> cpeterson, thanks. looks like a Vidyo crash. we're back.
11:04 AM <Pike> not just that the calendars are all upset, my head thinks it's wednesday, too
11:07 AM <RyanVM|sheriffduty> KaiRo: lsblakk: backing out now
11:07 AM <KaiRo> RyanVM|sheriffduty: thanks
11:10 AM <RyanVM|sheriffduty> jduell: CC me to that bug when you file it?
11:10 AM — RyanVM|sheriffduty wonders if that's the same underlying issue we have with other emulator test stability issues
11:11 AM <jduell> RyanVM|sheriffduty: will do
11:11 AM <RyanVM|sheriffduty> thanks
11:11 AM <jesup> jduell: sorry, we don't detect it directly: #if defined(MOZ_WIDGET_GONK) && defined(DEBUG) // B2G emulator debug is very, very slow and has problems dealing with realtime audio inputs
11:11 AM <jduell> jesup: ah. Ok, thanks
11:13 AM <jduell> jesup: hmm, this looks interesting... http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/gfx/thebes/gfxAndroidPlatform.cpp#117

Agenda

  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank:
    • TBD

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn’t been recorded in a bug)
We should assign people to the open items.

NEW

OPEN

  • bug 1081726 Donation link on website needs to be change to point to SeaMonkey Paypal donation page. Blocked on mcsmurf getting a new CVS website account, looks like his old one has expired.
  • (bug 956561); move blog to https://blog.seamonkey-project.org. [DONE]
    • Now live with new design and branding.
    • Some progress with the SSL certificate issue. With the certificate, things would work easier as mcsmurf wants to sync the blog with Facebook entries.
  • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager
    • mcsmurf says he has a short term workaround for this.
  • bug 1057920 SeaMonkey’s CVS dependency really should be removed. (currently used only for Releng Automation, and SeaMonkey Website).
    • IanN has had zero time in the last 2 weeks, preparing/having job interviews so no progress on this.

CLOSED

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • Windows nightly trunk builds are running again, a big thanks to Callek/ewong!
  • Buildmaster is up and running, and produces en-US builds, see 9/16 meeting’s Friends of the Fish Tank. Builds and langpacks in 18 languages including en-US are available unofficially thanks to A.Kalla.
  • [IanN] We’re going to have a task coming soon for moving from Win2003 to Win2008. There is also some upcoming changes to L10n build system in Q1 2015 (bug 1107635). [Ratty] Callek says we have a good chance of getting our builders upgraded to Win2008.
  • bug 1083689 Langpacks aren’t updated when auto-updating SeaMonkey. The langpacks need strict versioning e.g. min 2.30 max 2.30.* which makes sense since you don’t want 2.29 strings with 2.30. This is possibly a build config problem so we should check with Callek, ewong, or KaiRo.
    • The de and en-GB langpacks for 2.30 have:
      <em:minVersion>2.30</em:minVersion><em:maxVersion>2.*</em:maxVersion>
      2.22 had:
      <em:minVersion>2.22</em:minVersion><em:maxVersion>2.22.*</em:maxVersion>
  • Due to the master having some mysql issues, Callek has put a halt on the mysql updates, which affects the tbpl. So nothing is showing in tbpl atm.
  • [9th December 2014]
    • Infrastructure issues
      • linux64 systems are still plagued by bug 1058385. Regular AWOLing. Currently 6 slaves are up.(-2, -3, -4, -6, -7, -13)
        • Callek says that he’ll poke Mozilla IT about this.
      • NB: Currently the miscellaneous patches to fix the RelEng infra (tooltool et.al) are all applied to the master directly. Once reviewed, the patches will be pushed to their corresponding repositories and the master will be updated properly.
      • NB2: None of the test bustages are listed. Priority is currently set to get the builds running properly.
      • NB3: Build oranges are not mentioned. Read NB2.
      • On mozilla-central a win64 change has landed recently and switching to VS2013. SeaMonkey Windows builders are running Vista and VS 2013 has a minimum requirement of Windows 7.
    • [comm-central]
      • WinNT (debug/normal) busted : bug 1108970 – gfx/layers/d3d11/CompositorD3D11.cpp : Cannot open include file ‘DXGI1_2.h': No such file or directory
      • l10n nightly/dep builds busted : bug 1073327 Fix waiting review.
      • blocklist update bustage : bug 1074572 Fix waiting review.
    • [comm-aurora]
      • blocklist update bustage : bug 1074572 Fix waiting review.
      • OSX64 l10n nightly/dep bustage : related to bug 902876
      • OSX64 bustage: atm, unsure what’s busting this. tracked in bug 1090136
  • See RelEng page for the RelEng status history.
  • In Bug 902876 Comment 12 Mcsmurf is waiting for feedback from the build team on how to proceed.

Release Train

  • SeaMonkey 2.31 was released December 4.
  • Useful Firefox Release Schedule link: Releases Scheduling

Extensions and Plugins Compatibility Tracking

  • Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/
    This tool goes a little further beyond simply modifying install.rdf – it also identifies a few more other things in the code that are Firefox or Thunderbird specific and attempts to change them. Of course, not all extensions can be ported so easily to SeaMonkey since there’s only so much an automated tool like that can do.
    •  !This item should be moved to somewhere more permanent and discoverable!
  • Flashblock is broken on Firefox and SeaMonkey (for 2.31, bug 1052480), regression from bug 1050049.
  • Current Lightning 3.6b1 builds offered on AMO don’t work with the 2.31 release (bug 1081534, bug 1106034, bug 1107865)
  • The Thunderbird team is planning to ship Lightning with Thunderbird. IanN thinks we will want to ship lightning too. We should coordinate with Thunderbird.
  • Proposed replacement for Venkman for shipping with SeaMonkey: Tiny JavaScript Debugger. TinyJSD is a JavaScript debugger for privileged code running Mozilla products like Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey. It serves to debug the application as well as extensions written in JavaScript.
    • Consensus is that we should ship TJSD as a replacement for Venkman. The next step is to contact the author.
  • Addon SDK: Mostly fixed. The largest remaining stumbling block is the hard dependency on (the Firefox) CustomizableUI.jsm which is used by SDK UI modules like button and toolbar. But see also Replace deprecated sdk/widget, without using toolbar from Australis
    You can fork the widget module and publish it on npm and try to support it. Just copy and paste it to a new module, remove the deprecation warnings, and publish that on npm, and start using it with jpm

  • See Basics page. Please only list current changes here.
  • Addon Compatibility Listings
  • Ratty filed bug 957149 to push an updated version of DOMi to addons.mozilla.org to pick up the latest fixes. Depends on:
  • Our build team needs to automate DOMI branch selection rather than having to tweak the client.py every 6 weeks. bug 763506

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 29 new, 6 fixed, 15 triaged.

  • Medium triaging effort, average number of new bugs filed.
  • IanN thinks it would be useful to remind people on the newsgroups / forums that they can contribute by triaging. Tonymec will post a reminder to newsgroups / forums. See bug 1092632 (Sm_tri_HowTo) Document how to triage SeaMonkey bugs.

Open reviews/flags:
30 review
5 super-review
3 ui-review
6 feedback

  • See Feature List page for major wanted/needed features.
  • TODO: We will need to update our Sync UI code due to the new Sync API. Also we need to check if we are allowed to create FX accounts from our UI Since the new Sync accounts are FX accounts.[IanN] I’m sure I saw a question about FX accounts and branding. Callek was going to ask about being able to use Firefox accounts.

Build Changes (gps)

(Build changes of which engineers should be aware.)

RelEng (catlee)

(Repo, test, and other information for engineers from the release engineering team.)

Upcoming Outages/Upgrades

(System outages/upgrades and tree closures that impact engineering.)

Quality Programs

(An opportunity to hear about status with the various quality programs that do not have a formal team structure.)

MemShrink (njn)

<Read Only>
No update.

Team Stand-ups

(In <2 mins, what did your team accomplish last week, on what is your team working on this week, and on what, if anything, is your team blocked? No questions during the stand-ups. All questions should be asked during the roundtable.)

Electrolysis (e10s) (blassey)

GFX (milan)

  • B2G: the follow up to 2.1 (“2.X”) looks to be based on Gecko 37…
    • Graphics plans are unchanged from 2.2 to 2.X
    • Graphics plans were based on Gecko 38
    • So… will likely keep the 38 time frame and uplift to B2G 37 branch past the trunk. Will figure it out by mid January when this becomes relevant.

JS (naveed)

  • Work Week
    • Shumway load time is highest priority
    • 2015 Planning (more on this to come)

Layout (jet/dbaron)

<Read Only>

  • Investigating bug 1107378 to fix webkit-dependent sites in China added to a mobile (fennec) fix-list.
  • Landed bug 1089417 – restyling fixes for CSS media queries

Media (mreavy)

<Read Only>

  • 1. What has your team done since last week that might impact others?
    • Hello is in Release/34! Early reviews are generally good (and recognize the differences for privacy compared to say Skype).
    • Landed sdparta! bug 1091242 – (rewrite of the majority of webrtc signaling, other than the parsing).
      • Known regression bug 1109130 breaks < MSVC 2013 compiles; fix shortly
    • Lots of great discussions at #mozlandia
    • FoxEye presentation (echoes of roc’s older MediaStream Processing proposal)
    • Work moving forward towards multiple streams of a type and renegotiation
  • 2. What will your team do this week that might impact others?
    • Starting work towards a webrtc.org update
    • More sdparta work

Performance (vladan)

1. What has your team done since last week that might impact others?

  • bug 1107779, bug 1107782: Avi found that the “activeTicks” FHR measurement significantly over-reports Firefox usage time, because Firefox fires “user-interaction-active” notifications while the mouse cursor is positioned over the browser even when the user is away from the computer
    • Should we just land the fix, or is it important to maintain continuity with the current measurement (for monitoring for relative changes)?
    • The above bugs are unrelated to the big drop in activeTicks reported in bug 1096498
  • Talos numbers for most E10s tests are available
    • we’re still converting some tests, e.g. tresize
    • there are serious regressions from E10S, e.g. WebGL is 4x worse on Windows
    • Joel Maher said he’ll write a blog post summarizing Talos regressions/improvements from E10S
  • Spark is the new, much faster way of analyzing large amounts of Telemetry data:

2. What will your team do this week that might impact others?

  • bug 998863: Almost ready to land asynchronous initialization of out-of-process plugins

3. Is anything slowing your team down or getting in their way?

  • bug 998863: Need one more review for asynchronous initialization of out-of-process plugins

Shumway (tschneidereit)

Roundtable

(Comments and questions that arise during the course of the meeting or otherwise do not have a section.)

Touch input standardization update (mbrubeck)

  • W3C Pointer Events going to Proposed Rec. Shipping in IE, portions shipping in Chrome, partially implemented in Gecko.
    • Chrome and Safari have no plans to ship full Pointer Events implementation.
  • Touch Events CG is actively discussing errata and extensions, about to start a weekly-ish telecon. Let me know if you want to get involved.
  • Gecko/Touch has a breakdown of our implementation status and various missing pieces.

Mailing List Threads

(Threads that are likely to be of interest to engineering from various mailing lists.)

Good Reads

(Links to blog posts, books, videos, etc. that you think will be of interest to others.)

Topics for This Week

Work Week
Next week we are meeting up in Portland with the rest of Mozilla. Lots of opportunities to chat with your own team, but also with other teams. Go to meetings to learn about 2015 Initiatives. Hack on amazing, cool stuff – not on normal bug work. Leverage the opportunity.
Passwords
We have had a few meetings about new password-related work in Mobile & Desktop & Cloud Services. We are landing some “parity” features in Fennec soon. We are also looking ahead to new features too, including: Password generation, password strength, LoginManager form heuristics and more.
Reading List
In addition to working on client-side features, Mozilla has also started working on a Reading List service that would sync data across platforms – Mobile and Desktop.
