Automation Development report – week 40 2013

Given that most people of our team were out for the Mozilla Summit over the last weekend, we weren’t able to get a lot of tasks accomplished. But compared to the awesome time and more a dozen of discussions about automation with people during the event, we will most likely see some new faces soon.

Hightlights

As of Wednesday last week we updated our Mozmill CI instance to make use of Mozmill 2.0. Sadly we had to roll back this change, given that our restart tests were failing all over the place for Firefox Nightly and Aurora. An early investigation has been shown that a change in Firefox has caused this misbehavior of Mozmill. Hopefully we can get this fully investigated and fixed soon.

For Gaia related work Dave has released a couple of interesting software updates, which are gaiatest 0.16, b2gpopulate 0.10, and b2gperf 0.10.

Beside that you might also want to have a look at Dave’s blog post about the new command line interface tool for Gaia, which let you run commands directly via the command line.
