Brown Bag, “Analysing Gaia with Semmle”, Max Schaefer

  • Semmle has recently added support for JavaScript to its analysis platform. As one of our first major JavaScript analysis projects, we have analysed recent and historic versions of Gaia, the UI layer of FirefoxOS. In this talk, I will present some of our findings, and show how Semmle’s toolchain can be used to investigate all aspects of a software system, from high-level code quality trends to detailed static analysis questions.
  • Max works as a Research Engineer at Semmle where he is in charge of the JavaScript analysis platform. Prior to joining Semmle, he did a stint as a postdoc at IBM Research, before briefly trying his luck as an Assistant Professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. He holds a doctorate from Oxford University.

CTO Update

Speaker Location: Luke Wagner, remote

  • asm.js / Microsoft update: Microsoft announced work is underway to add asm.js optimizations to IE.
    • ‘asm.js’ is the name the kind of JavaScript produced by tools like Emscripten. While asm.js code runs pretty well in all browsers (it’s just JavaScript), it runs best with specific optimizations and Microsoft is the second browser (after Firefox) to include these specific optimizations. This is very good news for Mozilla since we pioneered asm.js as a way to reliably get near-native performance across browsers without requiring plugins or other non-standard technologies.

Web Compatibility

Mike Taylor (vidyo)

We held a Web Compatibility Summit in Mountain View on Wednesday, February 18th, 2015.
The videos are available online on AirMozilla.

We had attendance from Google (Paul Irish), Opera (remotely Bruce Lawson), Microsoft (Coleen Williams, Jacob Rossi), QuickLeft (Alex McPherson), (Alexa Roman), W3C (Daniel Davis), Mozilla (a couple of employees). We discussed issues related to Web Compat and how to make progress on them. A summary will be published soon. It was also broadcasted live on Air Mozilla.

Thanks to everyone in Mountain View who made it possible technically and logistically, much appreciated.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per topic. It’s like a lightning talk, but don’t feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation. If you plan on showing a video, you need to contact the Air Mozilla team before the day of the meeting or you will be deferred to the next week.

Two Big Priorities for spring campaign/38:

  • Hello work: sharing tabs/windows/apps
  • Reading list MVP ready desktop/iOS

Another biggie:

  • EME finished in 38 for first providers. (Name withheld out of legal/partner concerns). We want to uplift to 37 beta to give us extra testing time. We are not accelerating L10N at this time.

Marketing, Press & Public Reaction (Arcadio/Winston)

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — Jesper Kristensen @ 12:00 am

Agenda

  • Who’s taking minutes? -> Ratty
  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank:
    • N/A

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.
  • Official SeaMonkey Blog: 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 1057920 SeaMonkey’s CVS dependency really should be removed. (currently used only for Releng Automation, and SeaMonkey Website).
    • This has been spun off into a separate bugs for the website and the rest. For the website it looks like we’ll be going mercurial rather than svn (as that is the way the mozilla people would prefer it too).
    • SeaMonkey RelEng is concentrating on upgrading our Windows build machines to W2008 and Visual Studio 2013.

CLOSED

  • Callek needs to talk to someone about public SeaMonkey dataviz pages not working [FIXED].
  • Callek has been in discussions with MoCo on whether we (SM) can make use of Firefox Accounts.
    • Answer from MoCo: No we can’t.

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • Windows nightly trunk builds arewere running again briefly (thanks to Callek and Ewong) but are down again due to bug 1108970. Migrating our Windows builders to VS2013 would likely solve this and other bustages.
  • VS2010 support was removed from mozilla-central on 15th December (bug 1092468). Our Windows slaves are in the process of being upgraded to Win2008 and VS2013 (bug 1114876). There are also some upcoming changes to L10n build system in Q1 2015 (bug 1107635).
  • 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. Edit: However, only 9 languages are published daily for trunk there, and en-GB is not one of them. For Aurora I didn’t check. — Tonymec (talk) 16:49, 21 January 2015 (PST)
  • 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>
    • [IanN and RSX11M] There was a change in one of the scripts that generates the language pack files (the underlying issue was truncated version numbers introduced by Firefox) so it needs to be adjusted to take SeaMonkey into account.
  • 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.
  • [3rd February 2015]
    • Windows nightly and aurora builds broken. Will be fixed by upgrading to Windows Server 2K8 and Visual Studio 2013 (bug 1114876).
    • [comm-release]
      • Windows builds broken due to infrastructure/network hiccup.
  • 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 2.32.1 was released on 6 February.
  • SeaMonkey 2.33 beta 1 was scheduled for 15 February but didn’t happen. No ETA yet.
    • There was an issue with the removal of the creativecommons search plugin. L10N repacks was falling over due to a reference in list.txt to a non-existent searchplugin. Ewong is handling the issue.
  • Useful Firefox Release Schedule link: Releases Scheduling
    • next merge day is 23 February (1 week left!)

Extensions and Plugins Compatibility Tracking

  • See Basics page. Please only list current changes here.
  • Addon Compatibility Listings
  • AMO and addon-signing. All addons will have to be signed, uploaded to AMO then reviewed by AMO editors including extensions not hosted on AMO. Otherwise they’ll be disabled. TL;DR: SeaMonkey and Thunderbird will not implement mandatory extension signing. Discussion in mozilla.addons.user-experience
    • Tracking bugs: bug 1047239, bug 1070152, bug 1070153; Wiki: AMO/SigningService
    • [Ratty] According to jorgev there will be some sort of build time switch. SeaMonkey users will be disproportionately affected as they use orphaned extensions or modified Firefox/Thunderbird extensions via the xSidebar Project or the Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey. We should disable this check in our releases.
    • Jorge posted a blog article on 10 February, which got 298 comments over the last week and counting! [1]
    • Lemon Juice started a MozillaZine thread in the SeaMonkey Builds forum which by now migrated into the general Extension Dev forum (73 replies). [2]
  • 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.
  • Lightning 3.8b1 builds are available for SeaMonkey 2.33.
  • The Thunderbird team is planning to ship Lightning with Thunderbird. IanN thinks we will want to ship lightning too. We should coordinate with Thunderbird. Related bugs:
    • bug 1130854 Package Lightning with Thunderbird for c-c and c-a builds.
    • bug 1113183 Integrate Lightning Into Thunderbird by Default.
    • bug 1130852 Add opt-in dialog to promote Calendar integration [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.
    • IanN filed bug 1133723 Investigate options for replacing Venkman with the TinyJSDebugger.
  • Our build team needs to automate DOMI branch selection rather than having to tweak the client.py every 6 weeks. bug 763506

    • bug 476108 GetShortPathNameW fails under some NTFS junctions [patchlove].
  • Current breakages:
    • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager needs an owner
    • bug 995737 adapt seamonkey for the address book remote content policy change; use permission manager instead of address book property.
  • Mozilla-central bugs that affect us:
    • Firefox is currently changing styles of several Toolkit pages
      • already affected: config.xul for about:config, bug 1125636
      • meta bug for about:* pages: bug 1097111
      • Modern may need updating as IDs are changing, Default needs forking if we want to roll back to previous styles
      • Fallout thus far: bug 1133380 about:privatebrowsing (Default), bug 1133582 about:config (Modern)
    • Our front end Sync UI needs to be updated as the old backend is going away in Gecko/Firefox 31. See: New Firefox Sync has landed in Firefox Nightly. Tracked in:
      • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager.
      • bug 1003434 Add support for about:sync-progress.
      • Update SeaMonkey won’t be allowed to use the Firefox Sync 1.5 servers. Need to look into the possibility of hosting our own servers on a community machine or VPS.
    • A lot of these bugs are due to mozilla-central switching from synchronous APIs to Asynchronous APIs.
    • bug 566746 (asyncFormHistory) Form history should use asynchronous storage API. Tracked in:
      • bug 912031 Use Asynchronous FormHistory.jsm in place of nsIFormHistory2 in Suite.

      • MailNews bug 791645 Rewrite calls to synchronous nsIProtocolProxyService::DeprecatedBlockingResolve with Async code before DeprecatedBlockingResolve disappears as well.
    • The C++ downloads manager backend nsIDownloadManager is being decommissioned. Firefox has migrated to jsdownloads. Thunderbird is in the process of migrating. We need to decide how we are going to handle this sooner rather than later.
    • bug 825588 Asynchronous JavaScript API for downloads and bug 851471 Decommission nsIDownloadManager. Tracked in:
      • bug 888915 Move SeaMonkey to the new JavaScript API for downloads when nsIDownloadManager is decommissioned.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 31 new, 5 fixed, 14 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.
    • The draft is currently at https://wiki.mozilla.org/User:Tonymec/Triage_HowTo
    • Progress is stalled due to hardware/firmware problems with Tonymec’s current computer. Current ETA for newer computer is after Easter but this is a rough estimate. Anyone with a wikimoz account can edit the page (and is welcome to). — Tonymec (talk) 17:35, 21 January 2015 (PST)

Open reviews/flags:
35 review
5 super-review
4 ui-review
9 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.

Current status and discussions

  • 36.0 beta is out

Critical Issues

Critical bugs. Please leave these here until they’re confirmed fixed.

  • Auto-complete improvements – some of those could go into esr31
  • ldap crasher
  • certificate crasher
  • Lightning integration
  • AB all-acount search bug 170270
  • maildir UI
  • video chat The initial set of patches, with IB UI, may land this week (they’re up for final review). We’re considering also landing a set of matching strings for TB so uplifting a port of the UI becomes possible. I’m not sure the feature will be ready to ship in TB38 as it has not undergone much real world testing yet, but you never know, there may not be any nasty surprises ;)

Release Issues

Upcoming

  • Thunderbird 38 moves to Earlybird ~ February 24, 2015
    • string freeze

Lightning to Thunderbird Integration

See https://calendar.etherpad.mozilla.org/thunderbird-integration

  • As underpass has pointed out repeatedly (thanks for your patience!) , we need to rewrite / heavily modify the lightning articles on support.mozilla.org. let me know irc: rolandtanglao on #tb-support-crew or rtanglao AT mozilla.com OR simply start editing the articles

Round Table

Paenglab

  • I’ve requested for bug 1096006 “Add AccountManager to the prefs in tab” for Tracking_TB38.
    • Is this bug desired for TB 38? It would be needed to enable PrefsInTab.
    • If yes, I have a string only patch to land before string freeze.
  • I’ve also requested for Hiro’s bug 1087233 “Create about:downloads to migrate to Downloads.jsm” for Tracking_TB38.
    • I’ve needinfoed him to ask if he has time to finish, but no answer until now.
    • It has also strings in it. I could make a strings only patch if needed.

sshagarwal

  • Plan to land AB fix bug 170270 for TB 38.
  • Bundled chat desktop notifications bug 1127802 waiting for final review.
  • Discussing schema design and appropriate db backend for next gen address book with mconley. We plan to get an approximate idea of the number of contacts in the users’ address books on an average bug 1132588 as a required minimum performance measure.

  • triage topcrashes
  • working on HWA question bug 1131879 Disable hardware acceleration (HWA)
