Mozmill status and goals for 2009

As a couple of you already know Mozilla QA runs its own set of automated functional tests which are separated from the tests in the automated test suite. The main goal for us is to shorten the test duration for manual functional tests so those tests will be run more often. There are Smoketests, BFT’s (basic functional tests), and FFT (full functional tests) available on Litmus which get partly run by QA during release testing or at any time by contributors. Given the fact that all those tests need aContinue readingMozmill status and goals for 2009

“Mozmill meets L10n” slides available

Over the last weekend Mozilla Camp Europe 2009 has been taken place in Prague. About 150 people from l10n, qa, dev, and advocacy were invited to join this conference which Mozilla Europe is organizing each year.

For now I’m based in Karlsruhe which is located atContinue readingGetting hired by Mozilla

Getting the list of fixes between two Firefox versions

If you are using a beta version of Firefox or even a nightly build, to help in testing brand-new features and verifying fixed bugs, it’s sometimes necessary to identify a regression. Normally you will start in narrowing down the regression range by dividing the possible time frame in smaller chunks. It will take some time but finally you will end-up with two identified builds. One build with the feature working and another one with the regression starts happening. The next step will be to get the list of patches, whichContinue readingGetting the list of fixes between two Firefox versions
