Mike Conley: The Joy of Coding (Ep. 11): Cleaning up the View Source Patch

Mozilla planet - sn, 25/04/2015 - 23:22

For this episode, Richard Milewski and I figured out the syncing issue I’d been having in Episode 9, so I had my head floating in the bottom right corner while I hacked. Now you can see what I do with my face while hacking, if that’s a thing you had been interested in.

I’ve also started mirroring the episodes to YouTube, if YouTube is your choice platform for video consumption.

So, like last week, I was under a bit of time pressure because of a meeting scheduled for 2:30PM (actually the meeting I was supposed to have the week before – it just got postponed), so that gave me 1.5 hours to move forward with the View Source work we’d started back in Episode 8.

I started the episode by explaining that the cache key stuff we’d figured out in Episode 9 was really important, and that a bug had been filed by the Necko team to get the issue fixed. At the time of the video, there was a patch up for review in that bug, and when we applied it, we were able to retrieve source code out of the network cache after POST requests! Success!

Now that we had verified that our technique was going to work, I spent the rest of the episode cleaning up the patches we’d written. I started by doing a brief self-code-review to smoke out any glaring problems, and then started to fix those problems.

We got a good chunk of the way before I had to cut off the camera.

I know back when I started working on this particular bug, I had said that I wanted to take you through right to the end on camera – but the truth of the matter is, the priority of the bug went up, and I was moving too slowly on it, since I was restricting myself to a few hours on Wednesdays. So unfortunately, after my meeting, I went back to hacking on the bug off-camera, and yesterday I put up a patch for review. Here’s the review request, if you’re interested in seeing where I got to!

I felt good about the continuity experiment, and I think I’ll try it again for the next few episodes – but I think I’ll choose a lower-priority bug; that way, I think it’s more likely that I can keep the work contained within the episodes.

How did you feel about the continuity between episodes? Did it help to engage you, or did it not matter? I’d love to hear your comments!

Jeff Walden: First Amendment forum doctrine

Mozilla planet - sn, 25/04/2015 - 20:17

Yesterday I discussed government speech, and Texas’s arguments that specialty plates are government speech that individuals can’t compel Texas to make. Today I discuss the First Amendment forum doctrine.

A reminder: yesterday’s disclaimer still holds. In fact this post is probably most likely to contain errors of all the posts in this series. Caveat lector!

Forums

The Supreme Court classifies places (physical and metaphorical) where the First Amendment applies, and freedom of speech requirements hold, in a few different ways. These places are called forums.

Modern ruins of the Roman Forum One of the original forums, the Roman Forum: per Wikipedia, the center of public life in ancient Rome, and a venue for many public speeches (Carla Tavares, CC-BY-SA-3.0 Not a forum

Some places aren’t forums. For example, most public television programs aren’t forums. In such places government may exclude particular viewpoints, topics, and content.

If Texas ran its specialty plate program as a contest, picking a few choices from a vast selection according to its own whims as occurs on public TV, it might not be a forum. (That might also make it government speech.) (Or maybe I’m grasping for a plausible example, and I’ve grasped wrongly. Hedge!) But Texas accepts basically anybody, so it’s a forum.

Traditional public forums

Some forums have always been open places of discussion: traditional public forums. These include public sidewalks and parks. Here, no restrictions on content or viewpoint are permitted (except a very small list). Government may impose reasonable content/viewpoint-neutral restrictions as to speech’s time, place, or manner. But in doing so it must further significant government interests, and restrictions must be narrowly written and leave open ample alternative channels for speech. For example: no use outside park hours, potentially you need a permit granted nondiscriminatorily, don’t exceed noise level limits, stay off grass being reseeded.

Specialty plate programs are a modern invention, obviously not a common-law forum historically open for discussion.

Nonpublic forums

Places that are forums that aren’t traditionally open, that government hasn’t opened to public expression, are nonpublic forums. Examples are courthouses and government buildings: generally, government property reserved for some particular use. Government can employ restrictions on content here, to further those particular interests. Otherwise, restrictions match those in traditional public forums (and particularly can’t restrict speech based on its viewpoint).

Texas invited everyone onto its license plates, opening them to public expression. So Texas’s specialty plate program is not a nonpublic forum.

Designated public forums (and limited public forums)

Finally we have locations not traditionally opened, that government has opened to some public expression: designated public forums. The restrictions applicable in traditional public forums are also applicable in designated public forums.

There’s also an additional sort of forum, sometimes viewed as a subset of the designed public forum, where the government limits speech to certain groups or topics: the limited public forum. A limited public forum may place restrictions on content, but it can’t restrict based on viewpoint.

The various forum definitions logically subdivide the set of all possible forums. (Although to be sure, there remains argument as to what subdivision the Court’s cases have actually recognized.) By process of elimination, Texas’s program must be a designated public forum, possibly a limited public forum.

Recap

Let’s check our work. License plate designs are not traditionally open to ideas, but Texas allows anyone to propose a custom plate design espousing practically any idea whatsoever. The ideas are legion: in-state and out-of-state colleges (even bitter rivals), college sports teams, and professional teams; corporations; non-profits; causes; war veteran status; the whimsical (“Rather Be Golfing”); and many others. The individual selects a specialty plate and displays it publicly. Moreover, Wooley v. Maynard indicates that individuals have First Amendment rights in what their license plates say. So Texas’s specialty plates are public expression, at the government’s invitation.

Texas’s specialty-plate program is a designated public forum, possibly a limited public forum. Hold the question as to which one — we’ll return to this later.

Tomorrow, a discussion of offensive speech.

Gervase Markham: Three Forms of Diversity

Mozilla planet - sn, 25/04/2015 - 10:34

I’ve been thinking about the concept of “diversity” recently, and have written some thoughts on the subject, called Three Forms of Diversity. (The title is a play on Three Forms of Unity.)

The piece does include, at the end, a section on the specific applicability of my analysis to the Mozilla community.

Comments, as always, are most welcome. :-)

[4484| 0| 0| 0] 100% ==========================================>|1511.7s
PASSED ALL

Yaaaaaay! It's time to get jiggy with it! First, I'll scrub the changesets to remove PPCBC/JM entirely (except for the PowerPC-specific parallel type guards in Baseline inline caches, which are an important optimization); the only other vestiges that shall remain are a couple code snippets from Ben's original work in the new MacroAssembler and the G3/G4 software square root routine from David, which may be replaced with a call to the C library; I'm going to do some profiling there first. (G5 still uses its hardware square root instruction.) After that we'll sprinkle back in gcc 4.6 compatibility, the last branch we will support with this compiler, mix with IonPower, and then try to get the browser up. If I can get the minimp3 seek routine working, MP3 support will be exposed publicly too. We will also unveil our own bespoke browser front page to avoid issues with Electrolysis, which we don't support currently.

In addition, I have some lofty but possible performance goals for IonPower. For these goals, I've selected V8 as the metric because it's a medium-weight benchmark; SunSpider is probably not representative anymore of the bloatier code many sites (especially ad networks, bleah) now foist upon their users, and it is unlikely many Power Macs are braving the really heavy processing JavaScript apps for time reasons (or support reasons: games using WebGL, for example, won't run on TenFourFox anyway) which makes Kraken and Octane less representative as well. The aim is to get the optimized IonPower faster than PPCBC on V8 in Baseline-only mode, and faster than our old JaegerMonkey backend on V8 in full Baseline/Ion mode, which it now supports. The first is definitely achievable, and the second should come awfully close. That should translate into demonstrable real-world improvements on the vast majority of sites vintage Macs still frequent and will also make pdf.js finally viable on TenFourFox.

I treat every ESR release like it's our last, but by the time 38ESR ends, that will mean Power Macs will have had a fully supported branch of Firefox for 10 years after the last Power Mac rolled out of Cupertino. Now, that's support!

ETA for the first beta is 3-4 weeks, with rollout around 38.0.2 to coincide with the end of support for 31ESR. Localizers, stand by!

Armen Zambrano: What Mozilla CI tools is and what it can do for you (aka mozci)

Mozilla planet - fr, 24/04/2015 - 22:23
Mozci (Mozilla CI tools) is a python library, scripts and package which allows you to trigger jobs on treeherder.mozilla.org.
Not all jobs can be triggered but those that are run on Release Engineering's Buildbot setup. Most (if not all) Firefox desktop and Firefox for Android jobs can be triggered. I believe some B2G jobs can still be triggered.

NOTE: Most B2G jobs are not supported yet since they run on TaskCluster. Support for it will be given on this quarter.

Using itOnce you check out the code:
git clone https://github.com/armenzg/mozilla_ci_tools.git
python setup.py developyou can run scripts like this one (click here for other scripts):
python scripts/trigger.py \
  --buildername "Rev5 MacOSX Yosemite 10.10 fx-team talos dromaeojs" \
  --rev e16054134e12 --times 10which would trigger a specific job 10 times.

NOTE: This is independent if a build job exist to trigger the test job. mozci will trigger everything which is required to get you what you need.
One of the many other options is if you want to trigger the same job for the last X revisions, this would require you to use --back-revisions X.
There are many use cases and options listed in here.
A use case for developersOne use case which could be useful to developers (thanks @mike_conley!) is if you pushed to try and used this try syntax: "try: -b o -p win32 -u mochitests -t none". Unfortunately, you later determine that you really need this one: "try: -b o -p linux64,macosx64,win32 -u reftest,mochitests -t none".
In normal circumstances you would go and push again to the try server, however, with mozci (once someone implements this), we could simply pass the new syntax to a script (or with ./mach) and trigger everything that you need rather than having to push again and waster resources and your time!
If you have other use cases, please file an issue in here.
If you want to read about the definition of the project, vision, use cases or FAQ please visit the documentation.
