The session which interested me the most was discussing bugzilla.mozilla.org (bmo) and the relation to upstream Bugzilla development (especially getting more great stuff from bmo into upstream so other Bugzilla instances could use it). I try to follow bmo development (glob’s “push day” posts and the planning page are the most useful resources) and especially the recent bmo experiments with product dashboards, user dashboards and user pages, but getting an overview of all plans “in a nutshell” is always helpful, especially as there aren’t many upstream meetings.
FYI, further plans for the bmo instance include
- Native REST API
- moving the code repository from bzr to git
- UI improvements, more AJAX
- upstreaming the new bmo skin
- moving flags to its own database table for performance reasons (flags are heavily used for release management and hence frequently added in bmo)
- Investigating the use of memcached
- Integration with ReviewBoard to replace Splinter
Having spent a few years with Maemo and MeeGo, I also loved the discussion and analysis of the mobile market and its players (competitors and potential allies of Firefox OS).
Know more, do more, do better.
I would like to express my gratitude to Mozilla for inviting me to this event.
