Speaker Location: Mountain View (Dietrich)

  • Feature-complete deadline was on Friday, 7/20. Many UI features and fixes landed, as well as large system parts of Gaia such as Web Activities.
  • Platform team landed large pieces of the new permissions model, voicemail APIs, major pan/zoom improvements, and out-of-process support across a bunch of components.
  • Members of the Security, Privacy and WebAPI teams met last week in Mountain View to sprint on implementing the permissions and packaging model.
  • Members of the Gaia team are in Mountain View from 7/23 – 7/27 to finish some front-end work and sprint on UI polish.


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.

  • Deployment of Bugzilla 4.2 to BMO being delayed because of issues with search functionality–the magic in some of the advanced searches was removed in 4.2, which actually means that some searches are no longer possible.
    • The BMO team is fixing the 4.2 search to allow all the old functionality and make it explicit rather than with some implicit magic.
    • HTML mail and a limit on search results are being backported to 4.0 in the mean time.
  • xpcshell tests on otoro.
  • Three Eideticker machines set up in Toronto for B2G and Fennec testing.
  • Try/infra load has been exceptionally high the last few weeks – please cancel unwanted/busted test runs to reduce the load (dev.platform post).
  • Discussions ongoing about switching off QT & RPM builds. If you have a reason why they shouldn’t be – please comment in bug 772419 or dev.planning asap.
  • The DB for TBPL has been trimmed by a massive 76GB \o/ (bug 703967).
  • More notes here.
