Byron Jones: we’re changing the default search settings for advanced search

Mozilla planet - wo, 17/09/2014 - 17:14

at the end of this week we will change the default search settings on bugzilla.mozilla.org’s advanced search page:

resolution-duplicate

the resolution DUPLICATE will no longer be selected by default – only open bugs will be searched if the resolution field is left unmodified.

this change will not impact any existing saved searches or queries.

 

DUPLICATE has been a part of our default query for as long as i can remember, and was included to accommodate using that form to search for existing bugs.

since the addition of “possible duplicates” to the bug creation workflow, the importance of searching duplicates has lessened, and returning duplicates by default to advanced users is more of a hindrance than a help.  the data reflects this – the logs indicate that over august less than 4% of advanced queries included DUPLICATE as a resolution.

 

this change is being tracked in bug 1068648.

Mozilla Labs Closed And Nobody Noticed

March 2014 was the month in which Brendan Eich become CEO of Mozilla, only to resign within a couple of weeks on account of his personal (but unfortunately very public) views on gay marriage which was seen as counter to Mozilla's ethos of inclusiveness.

Kim Moir: Mozilla Releng: The ice cream

Mozilla planet - wo, 17/09/2014 - 15:43
A week or so ago, I was commenting in IRC that I was really impressed that our interns had such amazing communication and presentation skills.  One of the interns, John Zeller said something like "The cream rises to the top", to which I replied "Releng: the ice cream of CS".  From there, the conversation went on to discuss what would be the best ice cream flavour to make that would capture the spirit of Mozilla releng.  The consensus at the end was was that Irish Coffee (coffee with whisky) with cookie dough chunks was the favourite.  Because a lot of people like on the team like coffee, whisky makes it better and who doesn't like cookie dough?

I made this recipe over the weekend with some modifications.  I used the coffee recipe from the Perfect Scoop.  After it was done churning in the ice cream maker,  instead of whisky, which I didn't have on hand, I added Kahlua for more coffee flavour.  I don't really like cookie dough in ice cream but cooked chocolate chip cookies cut up with a liberal sprinkling of Kahlua are tasty.

Diced cookies sprinkled with Kahlua
Ice cream ready to put in freezer
Finished productI have to say, it's quite delicious :-) If I open source ever stops being fun, I'm going to start a dairy empire.  Not really. Now back to bugzilla...

Daniel Stenberg: Snaxx delivers

Mozilla planet - wo, 17/09/2014 - 09:15

A pint of guinnessLate in the year 1999 I quit my job. I handed over a signed paper where I wrote that I quit and then I started my new job first thing in the year 2000. I had a bunch of friends at the work I left and together with my closest friends (who coincidentally also switched jobs at roughly the same time) we decided we needed a way to keep in touch with friends that isn’t associated with our current employer.

The fix, the “employer independent” social thing to help us keep in touch with friends and colleagues in the industry, started on the last of February 2000. The 29th of February, since it was a leap year and that fact alone is a subject that itself must’ve been discussed at that meetup.

Snaxx was born.

Snaxx is getting a bunch of friends to a pub somewhere in Stockholm. Preferably a pub with lots of great beers and a sensible sound situation. That means as little music as possible and certainly no TVs or anything. We keep doing them at a pace of two or three per year or so.

Bishops Arms logo

Yesterday we had the 31st Snaxx and just under 30 guests showed up (that might actually have been the new all time high). We had many great beers, food and we argued over bug reporting, discussed source code formats, electric car charging, C64 nostalgia, mentioned Linux kernel debugging methods, how to transition from Erlang to javascript development and a whole load of other similarly very important topics. The Bishops Arms just happens to be a brand of pubs here that have a really sensible view on how to run pubs to be suitable for our events so yesterday we once again visited one of their places.

Thanks for a great time yesterday, friends! I’ll be setting up a date for number 32 soon. I figure it’ll be in the January 2015 time frame…If you want to get notified with an email, sign up yourself on the snaxx mailing list.

A few pictures from yesterday can be found on the Snaxx-31 G+ event page.

Ludovic Hirlimann: Gnupg / PGP key signing party in mozilla's San francisco space

Mozilla planet - wo, 17/09/2014 - 02:35

I’m organizing a pgp Keysigning party in the Mozilla san francisco office on September the 26th 2014 from 6PM to 8PM.

For security and assurances reasons I need to count how many people will attend. I’ve setup a eventbrite for that at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gnupg-pgp-key-signing-party-making-the-web-of-trust-stronger-tickets-12867542165 (please take one ticket if you think about attending - If you change you mind cancel so more people can come).

I will use the eventbrite tool to send reminders and I will try to make a list with keys and fingerprint before the event to make things more manageable (but I don’t promise).

For those using lanyrd you will be able to use http://lanyrd.com/ccckzw.(Please tweet the event to get more people in).

Clint Talbert: Getting Ready for Fall

Mozilla planet - wo, 17/09/2014 - 01:43

As leaves begin to turn in some places, the Bay area gets a nice blast of heat in September. It’s like a week of summer that forgot to happen back when we were socked in with fog in July. But, that nice last bit of warmth before our leaves start to turn (yes we have some leaves that turn) is also the harbinger of the fourth quarter at Mozilla. This year, I’m excited to start putting into place some of the changes we identified at the work week. So, to that end, three quick notes.

First, we are starting off with a Quality and Automation Community Call. This is going to be in the style of the WebMaker Community Calls, and the WebMaker folks have been graciously teaching us how they work. Our first one will be next Tuesday at 8AM Pacific/15:00 UTC. Unlike most of our other meetings where we talk in glib Mozilla shorthand, this will be a call that will focus on fully explaining a few specific projects that people can help with Right Now, regardless of their skill level. And, this will also be a forum for folks in the community to tell us about what they are doing. Giving our community a way to easily let us know what they are doing, and giving them a forum to talk to one another is not something we do enough of at Mozilla. So, I’m extremely excited to see where this goes. Additionally, we are going to do this in conjunction with the Automation and Tools team and I’m extremely psyched about starting this process off. Many thanks to Lyre Calliope who helped nudge us in this direction.

Second, we are going to define our efforts in quality around some core principles, which I can talk more about later, but I’ll briefly introduce them here. They are probably best envisioned as a set of overlapping circles in a Venn diagram:

Dependability, Delight, Security & Privacy, Performance underpinned by the web platform

There are likely only two things in there that you weren’t expecting. One is Delight–in this ultra competitive world, it’s not enough for our products to be right and correct. We have to go the extra mile and delight our users with our products. Nothing short of that is good enough.

The other one is the web platform. At Mozilla, our mission to extend, enhance and empower the web platform while ensuring it remains open underpins everything we do. As an odd anachronism, our QA systems and metrics have not historically taken into account how a given feature does or does not help to move the web platform forward. Likewise, we’ve not been very involved in looking at how we are implementing and testing our support for various web standards in any kind of systemic way. While I don’t believe that there are problems in these areas, I do believe that this is a core piece of quality at Mozilla and it is an area we should work to get more involved in and be more cognizant of.

Third, time is unfortunately a zero sum game.  The amount of work doesn’t shrink, especially when attempting to venture into new areas. So in order to make room for our new directions, we are going to experiment with stopping and/or pausing some of our endeavors. That can be scary when you’re changing how things have been done for years, but it’s what we need to do to move Mozilla forward. The world we live in has changed, and there is no going back. There is constant iteration toward our vision of being a more technically astute, more data-driven, more community empowering team that propels quality forward.
