Notes from mw22 during Test Automation meeting

jmaher: hang in
jemalloc jimm chen
josh matthews

  • going through mochitests. Patches for Content/ done, now going through dom/. A lot of stuff needs to be converted to


  • if the tests are hanging, not going quick enough, they are

disabled for now

  • last day 2 september
  • who is going to take over? someone from A-team?


  • xpcshell landed
  • SpecialPowers want to land, related to Josh stuff. set Prefs synchrounously
  • Refactoring specialpowers to get it working in Chrome. Getting leaks fixed
  • talos crash, workaround it? getinfo failure?
  • WaitForFocus patch works great, bug 670897
  • devicemanager adb, xpcshell, integrated into talos. Easier to

run talos on device without sutagent. Need to turn all the releng
tools, devicemanager

  • create remote talos option. To look into after talos has adb

device manager into it. Might want to get the sut tools deployed first

Triage list, 12 bugs:

  • 676137 Something fixed it on trunk, mbrubeck
  • 678381 Intermittent OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory:

‘browser_output.txt’ in Android remote-ts


  • Building out 200 tegras, only support 2.2.
  • Ordering boards, that support 2.3, panda boards.
  • Tegra 2.2 is a dead end, I think
