Weekly Status Report, W34/2008
- Build System Work:
Now that we have our own build system in comm-central, I worked on keeping up with build system changes.
It's easy to lose track of the files we're packaging into our installers, zips and tarballs, so I added a package-compare build target that does a diff of files listed in the package manifest and the dist/bin directory. I also did a first set of packaging fixes based on the findings of those diffs.
- Build/Test Machines:
I added the setting to correct tinderbox parsing of unit test logs, tried to get leak thresholds to work for the mochitests and added a build step to builders to report the package diffs.
- xpfe Cleanup:
The huge patch for cleaning up xpfe/ could land, all but one file of xpfe/global and xpfe/communicator are gone from from mozilla-central. I have one more patch to complete what can be cleaned up there now and filed bugs for killing both MOZILLA_LOCALE_VERSION and MOZ_XUL_APP - the former is old and now unneeded, the latter is the default with nothing else supported any more, so we can remove all code only used when it's unset and then remove the flag itself.
Even though we don't have localized builds for trunk yet, I added lt and pt-BR to all-locales. They'll get included once we get L10n builds from comm-central.
- Various Discussions:
client.py improvements, compare-locales, comm-central build system ownership, shell service UI, release schedules, more bmo reorg, etc.
The bugzilla.mozilla.org reorganization has been done during the Mozilla Summit, we now have a "SeaMonkey" product there, and I posted about new queries for SeaMonkey bug triage - please help us to get those sorted out, especially the UNCONFIRMED bugs and the ones in the "General" component need immediate work, in the longer term it would be nice to also clean out the huge list of really old bugs.
Every bugs the gets resorted to the right component or resolved counts, as it makes the real issues easier to find for the developers - thanks for your help on that work!
