Major Topics for This Week


Maple appears healthy enough to land on m-c. Work is not finished thoughhas landed on m-c. Ongoing work should happen on m-c.

Aurora uplift

We will start the normal process of requesting approval for patches we’d like to see uplifted from m-c to m-a. This will not be the “any and all patches” process we were using previously. We have crash fixes and blockers that will likely move to Aurora.

Stand ups

Suggested format:

  • What did you do last week?
  • What are working on this week?
  • Anything blocking you?

Please keep your update to under 2 minutes!

James W. (snorp)


Last week:

  • lots of work on bug 732564 (new viewport code) and follow-up bugs (735180, 735248)
  • with wesj, worked through linker errors I kept running into (732069, 735344)
  • addressed review comments on bug 725095 and landed maple this morning

Next week:

  • deal with fallout from the new viewport code. there are some bugs filed, pretty sure I understand why all of them are happening (except for 732016), it’s just a matter of fixing bugs in implementation edge cases.
  • get back to viewport prediction so we have less checkerboarding during panning


Last week:

  • Bug 728263 – Errors occur when Fennec is closed
  • Bug 726393 – crash [@ java.lang.NullPointerException: at org.mozilla.gecko.GeckoInputConnection.processKeyDown( ]
  • Bug 727496 – Large url crashes [@ malloc_print_stats | @0x0 | getanswer ] Fennec
  • Bug 734456 – Reftest/Crashtest suites C1, R2, R3 hidden
  • Bug 735461 – Robocop: Fennec is not using remote profile
  • Robocop reviews continue. There are 17 tests now and more on the way.

Next week:

  • Will likely concentrate on reftests
