Weekly Status Report, W16/2011
- Mozilla work / crash-stats:
Only some rough looks into crash analysis this week, and my experimental explosive crash analysis started to choke in some ways, all cause by instrumentation. From all I've seen, things stay pretty calm, though.
Some catch-up on things I had left lying around in the last weeks (not too much work-related was in that stage, though).
Met with CrashKill and Socorro team members to walk through our Q2 priority requests and see what they can meet.
- SeaMonkey Administrative Stuff:
Worked some TODOs I had lying around and posted to a few people to forward some items to the team.
Also filed bugs on improving the "Mozilla Trademark list" web page for SeaMonkey.
- SeaMonkey Search:
Created a patch on linking Engine Manager in sidebar and prefs and put it up for review. Might need a bit more work, but shouldn't be too hard to still get onto the rolling 2.1 train.
- German L10n:
I unfortunately had missed out on updating the German SeaMonkey website for 2.1 Beta 3 while I was in the US, so made that happen now.
- Various Discussions/Topics:
Aurora, user notification project, SeaMonkey on 64bit Macs, unprompted updates for users of EOLed Firefox releases, extensions and performance, Firefox version numbers getting obsolete, MeeGo N900 DE Alpha, etc.
Most of this week was getting back home, catching up with backlogs from things I left behind when being in the US and then dealing with a cold that hit me in the latter part of the week. Thankfully, it was also a rather quiet week at Mozilla, probably because it was shortly after all-hands and Easter week as well, which some people seem to have user for getting off work for a bit. It's nice to see though that the recent week were also pretty calm in terms of crashes and Firefox 4.0.1 seems to be even a good improvement from 4.0 in that point as well, so I'm looking forward to many happy people on this really stable update. This would be even nicer if we didn't have malware and "security" software both crashing us in strange ways at times, but we're working with vendors of the latter at least to improve the situation (it's harder to work on the malware situation, though, and I keep thinking about it).
All in all, I seem to have mostly recovered from both my backlogs and the cold now, though, so I'm eager to get to more work!
That said, a talk of mine at the "Linuxwochen Wien" FLOSS conference in Vienna has been approved, on Saturday, May 7th, at 5pm, I will give a presentation on "What Happens When Firefox Crashes?" (Actually "Was passiert, wenn Firefox abstürzt?" as it will be in German) in their main track, just before the closing event. I hope I'll be able to give the audience some insights into how their crash report submissions get treated and analyzed by us and how they enable us to make their browser more stable.
