As promised in my last post about the automation survey results I wanted to come up with a follow-up to clarify our next steps in being more open for our activities, discussions, and also quarterly goals. Sorry, that it has been taken a bit longer but end of the quarter and especially the year is mostly packed with stuff to finish up. Also the all-hands work week in Orlando beginning of December hold me off from doing a lot real work.
So lets get started with the mailing list topic first. As we have seen most people kinda like to get our news via the automation mailing list. But given the low usage of that list in the last months it was a bit surprising. Nearly all the time I sent emails myself (not to count in Travis results). That means we want to implement a change here. From now on we won’t use the mozilla.dev.automation list but instead utilize the mozilla.tools list. Also because this is the recommended list for the Engineering Productivity team we are all part of, and discussions will reach a larger audience. So please subscribe to this list via Google Groups or Email.
For status updates about our current activities we started to use standu.ps last quarter. It seems to work pretty well for us and everyone else is welcome to also post updates to our automation project section. If you are interested in those updates then read through that list or simply subscribe the page in your RSS reader.
Please also note that from now on there will be no Firefox Automation reports anymore. Instead I will reduce the amount of different contents, and only write about projects I worked on. So keep an eye out to not miss those!
