Landing team 16.01.14



Nice way to end the week again, we promoted an image today. #132 is the latest and greatest since image #121 and now the current trusty Touch image. It contains the changes mostly summed up in the previous emails throughout the week and is normally regression-free.

The test results are equivalent (and were rerun locally), meaning some flaky tests on maguro and mako passing, but some known crashers: the unity8 crasher on stop due to greeter lockup and a keyboard (maliit crasher) with an incoming fix.

Meanwhile, we released noticeable changes  in the incoming image #134:
* nested Mir session mode
* fix for DTMF tones which were not correcly being sent (that was an issue with automatic phone answer recognizing number sounds) * enhancements in messaging-app: when text messages are sent a spinner is shown while sending then a timestamp in the message after success
* mediaplayer-app gains some initial desktop mode support
* update to the latest mediascanner scope API
* new system-settings, using the new release process
* set target on indicator-messages
* a lot of build failure fixes since last trusty rebuild

*notes_app* (Bill):
http://ci.ubuntu.com/smokeng/trusty/touch/mako/112:20140105:20131223.2/5882/notes-app-autopilot/638428/ -> This one seems to need some more information to understand what happens (the toolbar is not closing). The CI team is asked if they can help providing some video for it.

*weather-app* (Nicholas):
http://ci.ubuntu.com/smokeng/trusty/touch/mako/109:20140103.1:20131223.2/5859/ubuntu-weather-app-autopilot/ -> Networking failure. This is changing to TWC api, and yes, there will need to be some mocking. This is WIP by development team. A big rollover to the new API will be landing soon.

*unity-keyboard/maliit crash* (Kevin/Bill):
http://ci.ubuntu.com/smokeng/trusty/touch/maguro/114:20140106:20131223.2/5905/ubuntu-ui-toolkit-autopilot/ Refailed today. A fix is in ubuntu-keyboard but we were asked to hold on on the release for now. So we hold on our breath and will release as soon as possible. We think that this crash on mako on image #133 of webbrowser-app is the same cause.

*clock-app *(Nicholas):
http://ci.ubuntu.com/smokeng/trusty/touch/maguro/114:20140106:20131223.2/5905/ubuntu-clock-app-autopilot/ -> From Nicholas: "No luck in reproducing yet. -- the emulator won't run clock atm, investigating. Xnox, I see you seem to have results (passing), but I've only gotten crashes." -> this one refailed today on mako (on test_run_preset which is calling test_add_preset): http://ci.ubuntu.com/smokeng/trusty/touch/mako/133:20140117:20140115.1/6118/ubuntu-clock-app-autopilot/677464/

Nicholas told: (quoting)
Found several probable causes for these failures. Seems to be a combination of the bug below on MIR, and a potential UITK issue with tab switching.

Probable MIR bug:
Tab switching:
Today's run contains an actual test failure possibility, looking into

*calendar-app* (Nicholas):
-> Sergio is going to release a fix as we speak

*dialer_app* crash (Bill):
http://ci.ubuntu.com/smokeng/trusty/touch/mako/114:20140106:20131223.2/5903/dialer-app-autopilot/ -> The team is looking into it (doesn't seem to happen on the emulator though)

*terminal app* (Nicholas):
We had this regression last month, it's on the list as well for blocking new terminal app release (keyboard not working with it): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu-terminal-app/+bug/1257791 -> The issue was investigated and found that konsole qml plugin is what needs work. Plugin author isn't able to look at the issue until next week, so we're on hold until then.

Possible *Mir* bug on maguro making some apps fail starting (Kevin)
-> a lot of people are looking into it, assign Kevin as tracking that one as it seems to be related to latest Mir. -> affect quite a lot maguro. Will worth seeing if people can reproduce on the emulator?

See you next week for new touch adventures!
