Weekly Status Report, W32/2011
- Mozilla work / crash-stats:
More per-build crash rate calculations for 6.0 betas.
Collected more data for Flash long-time rate calculations, but probably need to do that report a bit differently.
Looked into a sharp rise of Flash hangs, which turned out to be connected to some Zynga game, contacted their people on that.
Had a ton of communication and discussion with the Socorro team to get their new, better beta/release reports and numbers just right, including me testing that work and giving feedback.
Took part in a number of discussions on getting URL information for crashes.
On trunk, I kept track of some fixes for recent parser crashes actually working.
As always, looked into "explosive"/rising crashes with my experimental stats.
- Various Discussions/Topics:
SeaMonkey 2.3 feedback/discussions, shipping "irreversible" changes in the rapid release model, review lags, Mozilla website merge, more on MeeGo and Fennec, etc.
This was a week where I concentrated forces together with the Socorro team to get the crash-stats server updated to support split reports for betas and releases in time before the next Firefox release hits, so we can avoid completely skewed statistics like those we had the last time around. We all knew it was a ton of work and we were cutting it close, but the team worked late hours and on the weekend, and on late Sunday they could make this release live, while the Firefox release is happening early Tuesday (tomorrow), which even gave us some buffer to make sure everything's alright - and it seems to have worked out! A big thanks and congrats to the Socorro team for getting it done!
I will blog tomorrow or so about more details on what's in there and how to deal with the new data that's coming in with this.
