Topics for This Week

Crash Tracking
Soccorro is not correctly tracking Fx38.0a1 and Fx37.0a2 so we are not able to see Top Crashers for Nightly and Aurora. For details, see bug 1122145.
There is a meetup on Jan 22nd in SF for Passwords Dev group. There is a meetup (Jan 26th) in SF to discuss progress and planning for Passwords, Task Continuity and iOS Q1 projects. There is a meetup (Feb 16th) in SF to critique and tweak Fx on iOS.

Projects for this cycle:

  • Push migrate legacy Sync 1.1 devices across the finish line
    • Migration bits all landed, tracked by bug migratesyncandroid
