Summary

  • WebAPI: Big push for the platform API deadline. Some big pieces still not landed, and lots of patches in review, but not landed. Expect another two weeks of heavy development of platform APIs. Major bug cleanup in all platform areas related to final phone requirements, and application of the new blocking-basecamp flag. Porting work is ongoing to support the device that'll ship.
  • Gaia Apps: Tabs and Awesomescreen landed in the browser. Can import contacts from sim card. More music player functionality. Communication apps coming together with TF designs and devs. Movement to re-orient everyone to final screen size and resolution (desktop options, default theme change). Gaia try-server set up via pull-request on Github, for easy testing of UI patches.
  • UX/Design: Final wireframes are in for most core apps. A draft of system design patterns is now available (PDF).

Other Updates

  • Builds: Automated builds chugging along for all supported phones/platforms. Focus now on b2g-desktop builds for easy desktop dev and testing.
  • Testing: Gaia try-server via Github pull requests. Work ongoing to get xpcshell testing available.
  • QA: Weekly build certification process is now in place, and reports being sent to both dev lists.
  • L10n: UX spec incoming. Gaia devs and L10n group working together on system/API that meets Gaia needs while leveraging the existing processes/teams in L10n.
  • Security/Privacy: Security reviews ongoing. Completed: Settings, sensors, web activities, browser, usb, tcpsocket.
  • Software Updates: Nothing new.
  • Crash reporting: Nothing new.
  • Support: User support draft from Michelle, they're working with TF now.
  • PM: Triage is now weekly. Both status meetings re-oriented around projects instead of people, to better highlight progress and gaps.

Speakers

The limit is 3 minutes per speaker. It's like a lightning talk, but don't feel that you have to have slides in order to make a presentation.
