Review of Firefox desktop automation work – Q1 2016

Today is the last day of Q1 2016 which means time to review what I have done during all those last weeks. When I checked my status reports it’s kinda lot, so I will shorten it a bit and only talk about the really important changes. Build System / Mozharness After I had to dig into mozharness to get support for Firefox UI Tests during last quarter I have seen that more work had to be done to fully support tests which utilize Nightly or Release builds of Firefox. TheContinue readingReview of Firefox desktop automation work – Q1 2016

Firefox Desktop automation goals Q1 2016

As promised in my last blog posts I don’t want to only blog about the goals from last quarters, but also about planned work and what’s currently in progress. So this post will be the first one which will shed some light into my active work. First lets get started with my goals for this quarter. Execute firefox-ui-tests in TaskCluster Now that our tests are located in mozilla-central, mozilla-aurora, and mozilla-beta we want to see them run on a check-in basis including try.

Automation Survey Follow-up

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 topicContinue readingAutomation Survey Follow-up

Results of the Firefox Automation Survey

November 23rd I blogged about the active survey covering the information flow inside our Firefox Automation team. This survey was open until November 30th and I thank everyone of the participants which have taken the time to get it filled out. In the following you can find the results: Most of the contributors who are following our activities are with Mozilla for the last 3 years. Whereby half of them joined less than a year ago. There is also a 1:1 split between volunteers and paid staff members. This isContinue readingResults of the Firefox Automation Survey

Survey about sharing information inside the Firefox Automation team

Within the Firefox Automation team we were suffering a bit in sharing information about our work over the last couple of months. That mainly happened because I was alone and not able to blog more often than once in a quarter. The same applies to our dev-automation mailing list which mostly only received emails from Travis CI with testing results. Given that the team has been increased to 4 people now (beside me this is Maja Frydrychowicz, Syd Polk, and David Burns, we want to be more open again andContinue readingSurvey about sharing information inside the Firefox Automation team

mozdownload 1.18 released

Today we have released mozdownload 1.18 to PyPI. The reason why I think it’s worth a blog post is that with this version we finally added support for a sane API. With it available using the mozdownload code in your own script is getting much easier. So there is no need to instantiate a specific scraper anymore but a factory scraper is doing all the work depending on the options it gets. Here some examples: If you are using mozdownload via its API you can also easily get the remoteContinue readingmozdownload 1.18 released

Firefox Automation report – Q1 2015

As you may have noticed I was not able to come up with status reports of the Firefox Automation team during the whole last quarter. I feel sad about it, but there was simply no time to keep up with those blog posts. Even now I’m not sure how often I will be able to blog. So maybe I will aim to do it at least once a quarter or if possible once a month. You may ask how it comes? The answer is simple. Our team faced some changesContinue readingFirefox Automation report – Q1 2015
