Stability Brown Bags This Week

The Stability Work Week is ongoing at Mozilla Mountain View, and we have a couple of Brown Bag presentations this week. Both presentations will be streamed live on Air Mozilla and recorded for posterity.

Tuesday, June 12 at 12 noon Pacific
Location: Ten Forward, Mt. View
Mozilla CrashKill Investigation and Analysis
Presenter: Marcia Knous

Description: Stability is an important part of the Mozilla mission. Mozilla uses the Socorro tool to catch, process, and
present crash data for Desktop and Mobile Firefox, as well as other Mozilla products. The CrashKill team then takes that
data, analyzes it, detects trends, and drives the crash bugs to resolution. This presentation will give a general overview
of the crash analysis and investigation process focusing on workflow, as well as some fascinating insight into how the team
uses the Socorro tool to help keep the browser stable.

The Life Cycle of a Firefox Crash
Presenter: Robert Kaiser

Description: Unfortunately, even Firefox crashes sometimes. Everyone knows that, most of us have encountered such a case.
What many people don't know is that Mozilla cares about that and actually acts on crash reports. Take a look behind the
scenes of how that works in this presentation and find out what we are doing every day to improve stability of Firefox
(and other Mozilla products).

Join us live in Mountain View or on Air Mozilla, or watch the recorded sessions afterwards!

Weekly Status Report, W22/2012

Here's a short summary of Mozilla-related work I've done in week 22/2012 (May 28 - June 3, 2012):
  • CSI:Mozilla / CrashKill:
    More discussions on web app runtime, filed some followup bugs for the Socorro work there.
    Did some triage of admin UI bugs as most of its current version is going away, filed a bug for a new "missing entries" view for the future.
    Worked with Naoki on figuring out what exactly to do for some skiplist bugs that affect mobile.
    Worked on some stats around Socorro bugs and crash signatures that I wanted to have around for Stability Work Week.
    Just like every week, watched new/rising crashes, caring that bugs are filed where needed.
  • Various Discussions/Topics:
    Stability work week planning, Android XUL Fennec rendering fix, SeaMonkey infrastructure, switch to MPL2 headers, community event calendar, LGPL and Mozilla code, etc.

I'm writing this update from the Mozilla Space in Mountain View, and it's really good to be here, so many chances to discuss different topics with other Mozillians here and hopefully also move forward some of the topics where we have ongoing discussions.
Also, because I'm here and next week is Stability Work Week, I'm not sure if or when I get to write up a status report on the current week - even less on the week after, esp. with me going on vacation for two weeks following that one.

I'll be back to normal work - and hopefully well-rested - on July 1st! :)
