Major Topics for This Week

Tree closure

mozilla-inbound is currently closed due to Windows PGO issues. mozilla-central is open to any non-libxul code, which means Mobile JS and Java patches can land on m-c with the a=mobile-only approval.

Blocker Uplift

You need aurora approval for any blockers that need to land on Aurora. With the beta “go to” build coming up on 5/8, we need approved patches landed ASAP.

Front-end Fx15 Work

As time permits, the front-end team has been working on Fx15 work. Some of this started during the work week in Toronto, but it will continue. Blockers take priority and focus on release blockers is the current priority.

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!
