Weekly Status Report, W34/2011
- Mozilla work / crash-stats:
More work with the Socorro team on fallout from their recent release and smaller things they can put into a minor update.
Cared that all currently required versions are displayed on the Socorro front pages.
Wrote up a blog post on why the rapid release process can improve stability once everything is rolling as smoothly as it should.
Created reports on Flash report volume for Firefox 4 and higher, which are more helpful than looking across all versions.
Copied over all my custom report data to a Mozilla server now that infrastructure should be there to also run my reports completely on that system.
Also created a Mercurial repository for my custom report scripts to use that for working locally as well as run things on that server.
As always, ran experimental reports on "explosive"/rising crashes and investigated interesting rising and new issues popping up in those.
- SeaMonkey Build/Admin:
I did all the manual work to put up automated 2.3.1 updates for 64-bit Linux, but the current DigiNotor "oilspill" situation will make it necessary for me to look into 2.3.3 updates soon.
I did some more work on EarlyBlue and LCARStrek and uploaded 2.3 versions to AMO, which have all changes to supports SeaMonkey 2.3 and for LCARStrek Firefox 6 as well as possible (and newer versions reasonably).
- Various Discussions/Topics:
Upcoming all-hands, German community meetup, mobile performance, different views of rapid release cyle, version numbering again, Web APIs, Mozilla website merge fallout, maemo and Nightly, etc.
This report arrives late mostly because I had a lot of read in the last days due to the DigiNotar incident, but also because I have been engaging in too many things outside my core work, which I now realized I cannot hold up that way. I will reduce my engagement in areas that are not essential to not make the list of "things I need to want to do" in my mind end up crushing even my health. I will continue doing those things where I can make a change - and my time allows for doing them.
Citing one of my favorite songs from the Zac Brown Band: "Save your strength for things that you can change, forget the one you can't - you gotta let it go."
