SeaMonkey: 2015-02-17

Filed under: Posts — Tags: — Jesper Kristensen @ 12:00 am

Agenda

  • Who’s taking minutes? -> Ratty
  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank:
    • N/A

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn’t been recorded in a bug)
We should assign people to the open items.

NEW

OPEN

  • bug 1081726 Donation link on website needs to be change to point to SeaMonkey Paypal donation page. Blocked on mcsmurf getting a new CVS website account, looks like his old one has expired.
  • Official SeaMonkey Blog: Some progress with the SSL certificate issue. With the certificate, things would work easier as mcsmurf wants to sync the blog with Facebook entries.
  • bug 1057920 SeaMonkey’s CVS dependency really should be removed. (currently used only for Releng Automation, and SeaMonkey Website).
    • This has been spun off into a separate bugs for the website and the rest. For the website it looks like we’ll be going mercurial rather than svn (as that is the way the mozilla people would prefer it too).
    • SeaMonkey RelEng is concentrating on upgrading our Windows build machines to W2008 and Visual Studio 2013.

CLOSED

  • Callek needs to talk to someone about public SeaMonkey dataviz pages not working [FIXED].
  • Callek has been in discussions with MoCo on whether we (SM) can make use of Firefox Accounts.
    • Answer from MoCo: No we can’t.

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • Windows nightly trunk builds arewere running again briefly (thanks to Callek and Ewong) but are down again due to bug 1108970. Migrating our Windows builders to VS2013 would likely solve this and other bustages.
  • VS2010 support was removed from mozilla-central on 15th December (bug 1092468). Our Windows slaves are in the process of being upgraded to Win2008 and VS2013 (bug 1114876). There are also some upcoming changes to L10n build system in Q1 2015 (bug 1107635).
  • Buildmaster is up and running, and produces en-US builds, see 9/16 meeting’s Friends of the Fish Tank. Builds and langpacks in 18 languages including en-US are available unofficially thanks to A.Kalla. Edit: However, only 9 languages are published daily for trunk there, and en-GB is not one of them. For Aurora I didn’t check. — Tonymec (talk) 16:49, 21 January 2015 (PST)
  • bug 1083689 Langpacks aren’t updated when auto-updating SeaMonkey. The langpacks need strict versioning e.g. min 2.30 max 2.30.* which makes sense since you don’t want 2.29 strings with 2.30. This is possibly a build config problem so we should check with Callek, ewong, or KaiRo.
    • The de and en-GB langpacks for 2.30 have:
      <em:minVersion>2.30</em:minVersion><em:maxVersion>2.*</em:maxVersion>
      2.22 had:
      <em:minVersion>2.22</em:minVersion><em:maxVersion>2.22.*</em:maxVersion>
    • [IanN and RSX11M] There was a change in one of the scripts that generates the language pack files (the underlying issue was truncated version numbers introduced by Firefox) so it needs to be adjusted to take SeaMonkey into account.
  • Due to the master having some mysql issues, Callek has put a halt on the mysql updates, which affects the tbpl. So nothing is showing in TBPL atm.
  • [3rd February 2015]
    • Windows nightly and aurora builds broken. Will be fixed by upgrading to Windows Server 2K8 and Visual Studio 2013 (bug 1114876).
    • [comm-release]
      • Windows builds broken due to infrastructure/network hiccup.
  • See RelEng page for the RelEng status history.
  • In Bug 902876 Comment 12 Mcsmurf is waiting for feedback from the build team on how to proceed.

Release Train

  • SeaMonkey 2.32.1 was released on 6 February.
  • SeaMonkey 2.33 beta 1 was scheduled for 15 February but didn’t happen. No ETA yet.
    • There was an issue with the removal of the creativecommons search plugin. L10N repacks was falling over due to a reference in list.txt to a non-existent searchplugin. Ewong is handling the issue.
  • Useful Firefox Release Schedule link: Releases Scheduling
    • next merge day is 23 February (1 week left!)

Extensions and Plugins Compatibility Tracking

  • See Basics page. Please only list current changes here.
  • Addon Compatibility Listings
  • AMO and addon-signing. All addons will have to be signed, uploaded to AMO then reviewed by AMO editors including extensions not hosted on AMO. Otherwise they’ll be disabled. TL;DR: SeaMonkey and Thunderbird will not implement mandatory extension signing. Discussion in mozilla.addons.user-experience
    • Tracking bugs: bug 1047239, bug 1070152, bug 1070153; Wiki: AMO/SigningService
    • [Ratty] According to jorgev there will be some sort of build time switch. SeaMonkey users will be disproportionately affected as they use orphaned extensions or modified Firefox/Thunderbird extensions via the xSidebar Project or the Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey. We should disable this check in our releases.
    • Jorge posted a blog article on 10 February, which got 298 comments over the last week and counting! [1]
    • Lemon Juice started a MozillaZine thread in the SeaMonkey Builds forum which by now migrated into the general Extension Dev forum (73 replies). [2]
  • Firefox & Thunderbird Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey http://addonconverter.fotokraina.com/
    This tool goes a little further beyond simply modifying install.rdf – it also identifies a few more other things in the code that are Firefox or Thunderbird specific and attempts to change them. Of course, not all extensions can be ported so easily to SeaMonkey since there’s only so much an automated tool like that can do.
  • Lightning 3.8b1 builds are available for SeaMonkey 2.33.
  • The Thunderbird team is planning to ship Lightning with Thunderbird. IanN thinks we will want to ship lightning too. We should coordinate with Thunderbird. Related bugs:
    • bug 1130854 Package Lightning with Thunderbird for c-c and c-a builds.
    • bug 1113183 Integrate Lightning Into Thunderbird by Default.
    • bug 1130852 Add opt-in dialog to promote Calendar integration [Thunderbird].
  • Proposed replacement for Venkman for shipping with SeaMonkey: Tiny JavaScript Debugger. TinyJSD is a JavaScript debugger for privileged code running Mozilla products like Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey. It serves to debug the application as well as extensions written in JavaScript.
    • IanN filed bug 1133723 Investigate options for replacing Venkman with the TinyJSDebugger.
  • Our build team needs to automate DOMI branch selection rather than having to tweak the client.py every 6 weeks. bug 763506

2.Next

  • Stalled. Needs a kick.
    • bug 815954 Click-to-Play: Port bug 812562 (click-to-play blocklisted plugins: reshow urlbar notification as with normal click-to-play).
    • bug 476108 GetShortPathNameW fails under some NTFS junctions [patchlove].
  • Current breakages:
    • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager needs an owner
    • bug 995737 adapt seamonkey for the address book remote content policy change; use permission manager instead of address book property.
  • Mozilla-central bugs that affect us:
    • Firefox is currently changing styles of several Toolkit pages
      • already affected: config.xul for about:config, bug 1125636
      • meta bug for about:* pages: bug 1097111
      • Modern may need updating as IDs are changing, Default needs forking if we want to roll back to previous styles
      • Fallout thus far: bug 1133380 about:privatebrowsing (Default), bug 1133582 about:config (Modern)
    • Our front end Sync UI needs to be updated as the old backend is going away in Gecko/Firefox 31. See: New Firefox Sync has landed in Firefox Nightly. Tracked in:
      • bug 998807 Sync account creation or device pairing fails with exception in BrowserIDManager.
      • bug 1003434 Add support for about:sync-progress.
      • Update SeaMonkey won’t be allowed to use the Firefox Sync 1.5 servers. Need to look into the possibility of hosting our own servers on a community machine or VPS.
    • A lot of these bugs are due to mozilla-central switching from synchronous APIs to Asynchronous APIs.
    • bug 566746 (asyncFormHistory) Form history should use asynchronous storage API. Tracked in:
      • bug 912031 Use Asynchronous FormHistory.jsm in place of nsIFormHistory2 in Suite.
    • bug 769764 move proxy resolution to separate thread and remove sync api. Tracked in:
      • MailNews bug 791645 Rewrite calls to synchronous nsIProtocolProxyService::DeprecatedBlockingResolve with Async code before DeprecatedBlockingResolve disappears as well.
    • The C++ downloads manager backend nsIDownloadManager is being decommissioned. Firefox has migrated to jsdownloads. Thunderbird is in the process of migrating. We need to decide how we are going to handle this sooner rather than later.
    • bug 825588 Asynchronous JavaScript API for downloads and bug 851471 Decommission nsIDownloadManager. Tracked in:
      • bug 888915 Move SeaMonkey to the new JavaScript API for downloads when nsIDownloadManager is decommissioned.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 31 new, 5 fixed, 14 triaged.

  • Medium triaging effort, average number of new bugs filed.
  • IanN thinks it would be useful to remind people on the newsgroups / forums that they can contribute by triaging. Tonymec will post a reminder to newsgroups / forums. See bug 1092632 (Sm_tri_HowTo) Document how to triage SeaMonkey bugs.
    • The draft is currently at https://wiki.mozilla.org/User:Tonymec/Triage_HowTo
    • Progress is stalled due to hardware/firmware problems with Tonymec’s current computer. Current ETA for newer computer is after Easter but this is a rough estimate. Anyone with a wikimoz account can edit the page (and is welcome to). — Tonymec (talk) 17:35, 21 January 2015 (PST)

Open reviews/flags:
35 review
5 super-review
4 ui-review
9 feedback

  • See Feature List page for major wanted/needed features.
  • TODO: We will need to update our Sync UI code due to the new Sync API. Also we need to check if we are allowed to create FX accounts from our UI Since the new Sync accounts are FX accounts.[IanN] I’m sure I saw a question about FX accounts and branding. Callek was going to ask about being able to use Firefox accounts.

Round Table

Paenglab

  • I’ve requested for bug 1096006 “Add AccountManager to the prefs in tab” for Tracking_TB38.
    • Is this bug desired for TB 38? It would be needed to enable PrefsInTab.

Thunderbird meeting notes 2015-02-10. Previous meetings: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Thunderbird/StatusMeetings#Meeting_Notes

Attendees

aceman, cloep, florian, jcranmer, Jorg K, mkmelin, Paneglab, rkent, Roland, sshagarwal, wsmwk, MakeMyDay

Action items from last meetings

  • wsmwk to get in touch with Standard8 re: beta.
    • done – bkerensa and sylvestre are on it
  • rkent to work with Standard8 (and Fallen) on issues of 1.management of tracking flags and 2. pushing into aurora and beta for TB 38. (meeting generally agreed that mkmelin and rkent would be appropriate to manage pushing patches forward into aurora and beta).

Critical Issues

Critical bugs. Please leave these here until they’re confirmed fixed.

  • Auto-complete improvements – some of those could go into esr31

Release Issues

  • Current beta blocked due to Windows XP failures. rkent has try server configuration that can test a beta build, and will try Standard8’s suggestions.

Upcoming

  • Thunderbird 38 moves to Earlybird ~ February 24, 2015

We need people to commit to being mentors.

Lightning to Thunderbird Integration

See https://calendar.etherpad.mozilla.org/thunderbird-integration

  • As underpass has pointed out repeatedly (thanks for your patience!) , we need to rewrite / heavily modify the lightning articles on support.mozilla.org. let me know irc: rolandtanglao on #tb-support-crew or rtanglao AT mozilla.com OR simply start editing the articles

Round Table

JosiahOne

  • So I started a new job recently, but because of that plus school, my time for TB stuff is very, very low. I will continue doing ui-reviews and reviews, but implementing anything has pretty much come to an end until summer break.

wsmwk

  • release management https://etherpad.mozilla.org/XxBwrpMHKz
  • disable HWA for 38? it has been suggested by someone in support to disable because “3d acceleration … does little or nothing for Thunderbird but messes menus, font and causes crashes (the kind with no crash reporter reports).” bug 1131879

rkent

  • Hot bugs
    • bug 1125577 – startup crash in NSSCryptoContext_FindCertificateByEncodedCertificate (and similar bug 1128614)
    • bug 1124015 – Add UI to select maildir for storage when creating accounts
    • bug 1119529 – Sending message succeeds but Error “error while running message filters on it.”
  • Unfortunately a long review queue that I will be looking at for the next few days.
  • I now have access to Thunderbird ADI data. Our ADI reached a new peak last month (in spite of SlashDot assuming “Thunderbird usage is dropping”) and Japan has now surpassed US as #2 country (after Germany).

jcranmer

  • Hopefully going to work down my review queue by this weekend
  • Main jsmime perf regression fixes are r? rkent
  • I have a non-promisified version of OAuth2, but still no UI hookup
  • Mozharness-based mozmill tests: I’ve updated the runner, need to make updates to three or four repositories to make it work
    • Trying to get this in progress for Thunderbird 38, so we don’t need to maintain the old mozmill buildbot stuff for ESR
  • I’ve been doing some work with the emailjs team to add functionality to their SMTP libraries (specifically with regards to SASL) that we could share between TB/Whiteout.io/Gaia email teams.

TheOne

Jorg K

I have an XP machine (32 bit), I could run (not build) and debug (with WinDbg) the beta, if that’s of any help. I’d need to know where do download it … and the mentioned suggestions to try. (Contact via e-mail to start off).

mkmelin

  • autocomplete:
    • the critical regressions fixed
    • 3 prominent complaints still not done: the “tab too quickly doesn’t complete”, “show as red even if found”, “insert link missing paste url in context menu”
    • ordering: now landed on esr, some complaints still, need to investigate

Question Time

I’d like to know what happened to the “Thunderbird Discussions with Mozilla”, ie. the letter that was meant to be sent to the Mozilla management, re. funding, donations, staffing, etc. There was a lively discussion on the tb-planning mailing list in early January 2015.

  • won’t happen before 38 branching

Support team

  • As underpass has pointed out, we need to rewrite all the Lightning articles, they are out of date whether or not we finish the integration for TB 38. email me or irc roland or just edit the articles (see above under “Lightning to Thunderbird integration”. Tonnes do you have time to write some of these Lightning articles in English?

Other

  • Note – meeting notes must be copied from etherpad to wiki before 5AM CET next day so that they will go public in the meeting notes blog.

(Extra) Meeting next Tuesday, Feb 17.

Need To Know

(Release and system issues that may impact engineering this week.)

Notices/Schedule (lmandel)

Next Merge: February 23, 2015 Next Release: February 24, 2015
Trains
Central: 38 Aurora: 37 Beta: 36 Release: 35
  • Desktop 36 Beta 7
    • shipped on Saturday – thanks to the teams that helped ship on the weekend
    • disabled MSE
    • did not ship on Windows because we were waiting for a fix for YouTube
    • we will likely ship a Desktop Beta 10 as a result
  • Desktop and Mobile Beta 8 should ship today
  • Reminder that the next merge is < 2 weeks away. 38 is the next major Firefox release and the next ESR release. Get yer fixes in!
  • Aurora 37 is still not in good shape stability wise

Build Changes (gps)

(Build changes of which engineers should be aware.)

RelEng (catlee)

(Repo, test, and other information for engineers from the release engineering team.)

Upcoming Outages/Upgrades

(System outages/upgrades and tree closures that impact engineering.)

Quality Programs

(An opportunity to hear about status with the various quality programs that do not have a formal team structure.)

MemShrink (njn)

<Read Only>

PLDHashTable (and nsTHashtable and friends) now do not allocate any entry storage until the first element has been added. This makes empty tables more space-efficient and there’s no longer any need to lazily initialize such tables.

Stability (kairo)

<Read Only>

  • Overall numbers are still bad for everything else than release.
    • With 35.0.1 released, Firefox for Android looks fine on release now.
    • Desktop Beta should improve with MSE disabled in today’s beta. D2D 1.1 will also be disabled before we ship 36. We’ll try again next cycle.
    • Developer Edition sees a real lot of graphics crashes, we’ll need to see that cleaned up, hopefully a big part of that before we go to beta.

Team Stand-ups

(In <2 mins, what did your team accomplish last week, on what is your team working on this week, and on what, if anything, is your team blocked? No questions during the stand-ups. All questions should be asked during the roundtable.)

Desktop Platform (bsmedberg)

  • Reminder: FHR and telemetry are being unified, hopefully for 38 cycle. All new measurements should be added to telemetry, no matter whether you want them for only prerelease or release populations.

Electrolysis (e10s) (blassey)

GFX (milan)

<Read Only>

  • Planned “final” push for Lollipop, Silk in progress. More so for Silk than Lollipop, there are things outside our hands for Android L.
  • Chasing down those Windows OOMs.
  • Still a few unresolved Windows 7 issues on Beta 36.

Media (mreavy)

<Read Only>

1. What has your team done since last week that might impact others?

  • OpenH264 v1.3 now being pushed to release-channel users

2. What will your team do this week that might impact others?

  • Fixing some OpenH264 vs WebRTC 40 update issues (packetization)
  • Working on some regressions for getUserMedia (camera access) on specific Android devices
  • Loop/Hello will be updating the server and unthrottling soon
  • Preparing to land webrtc renegotiation (windows timer limits, etc)

Performance (vladan)

What has your team done since last week that might impact others?

1. You can now do custom Telemetry analyses using a Spark cluster consisting of multiple nodes! Analyses of large volumes of data should be significantly faster.

2. FHR & Telemetry are being unified and some of the patches have caused a couple of Telemetry outages on Nightly 38. Make sure to check for expected # of submissions when looking at Telemetry dashboards or doing a custom Telemetry analysis.
3. David Teller (Yoric) has been on sick leave for the last few weeks

What will your team do this week that might impact others?

  • bug 1128768: Develop a mechanism for reporting on the behavior of categories of Flash content (e.g. Facebook video, banner ads, YouTube player, etc) in a privacy-sensitive way. No URLs or domains are ever collected
    • This will be used to evaluate performance benefits of switching certain types of Flash content to Shumway

Roundtable

(Comments and questions that arise during the course of the meeting or otherwise do not have a section.)

Mailing List Threads

(Threads that are likely to be of interest to engineering from various mailing lists.)

Good Reads

(Links to blog posts, books, videos, etc. that you think will be of interest to others.)
