Feature Focus

  • Android Status & Roadmap Trello Board
    • Question – with the front end RL stuff landed/uplifted, are we good to go for L10N for 38? Is there anything else outstanding from a UI/String perspective? rnewman/nalexander – anything for fxaccounts that would still change strings?
  • iOS Roadmap in Aha!
  • New iOS Trello Board
  • iOS Weekly Status Report Commentary welcome on this report and format of it, as it’s brand spanking new!
    • Triaged the remaining/not started scope yesterday. Awaiting response/feeback from Karen on the proposed list of features to drop from the May 12th must-have list.
    • Once we confirm the final scope, we need to figure out a realistic string freeze. I’d like to have this date figured out by next Wednesday (next campaign status meeting).
    • L10N Risk Note’ – on the dashboard now the existing strings are at 100% for DE, but we do NOT have committed resources to continue with DE translation on the final/outstanding strings. There is nobody confirmed for JA yet, and no translation completed. Not a ‘stop ship’ grade risk, but still notable.

Round Table

  • Meeting improvements [mcomella]
    • What is the purpose of this meeting & what do you get from it?
      • imo: Identifying the larger picture – what direction are fennec & iOS taking, and what steps are the individuals in this meeting taking to get there). Perhaps we can make a connection to quarterly goals?
      • imo: Usually a lot of details that get in the way of the larger picture
    • Proposal: (incremental improvement) Skip the bug lists and have a summary of what you’ve worked on and intend to work on
    • Thoughts?
