Landing team 16.06.14


Hi everyone!

After some discussion among our landing team, we decided to whitelist
the filemanager autopilot failures and unblock image promotion. The
problem is really hard to debug especially because the main upstream
developers have no hardware to test it on. Problems with this test suite
were visible from the very beginning of the utopic series as well, so it
was no particular landing that could have caused the flakyness to start.

We will keep this issue on our radar though and try getting rid of it as
soon as possible.

With this being said we decided to promote a new image to the stable
channel today! Image #83 passed both our dogfooding and smoketesting
criteria. It includes the revert of the split greeter, moving the
feature back to Unity8's territory. This should decrease the memory-load
of your Ubuntu Touch back to the previous footprint. #83 also includes
the new platform-api v2 and upgrades to some of our core apps - enjoy!

We also built image #84 today which includes the new, touch-only
language packs instead of the desktop ones. It seems we gained around 40
MB of disk space this way \o/

In the meantime: upstreams, please mind the list! The counters are ticking!

* Some useful documentation:
(Still under development)

* Known issues:

** Wrong WWAN value in saved-states
 -> We had notice that this problem is still around... not a promotion
blocker as it is with us already since some time

* Issues not impacting user experience
(will become blockers if not fixed after a while):

** File manager test problems
[Whitelisted for now]
 -> Work in progress... cause still unknown.

** Address-book-app autopilot failures (Bill)
[Time counter: 6/7]
 -> Test failures non-reproducible locally so it seems to be an
autopilot problem. Still no movement here - can we get someone looking
at this? The address-book-app landing that's prepared might fix the
issue though...

** Autopilot failures in webbrowser-app during smoketesting runs since
image #72 (Olivier)
[Time counter 5/7]
 -> Test failures non-reproducible locally so it seems to be an
autopilot problem. With each image a different test is failing...
Happened again, a different test failure. Correlation: wrong input in
input field?

** test_add_recurring_type_alarm_must_add_to_alarm_list(weekday) failed
on mako, utopic#75 (Leo, QA)
[Time counter 5/7]
 -> Leo has this on his radar - not reproducible locally. Did not happen
recently... might be removed from the list.

** test_fake_home_fixture_must_copy_xauthority fails to create file on
mako (Leo, QA)
[Time counter 3/7]
 -> Fix commited, waiting for release in a silo. The silo still requires
some love regarding other things inside. Counting time on this one as
the silo is hanging for too long... Leo will try to get it released today.

** Network indicator crash during dialer-app and messaging-app
smoketesting (Antti)
[Time counter 5/7]
 -> As updated by Antti, this is a troublesome crash - but being worked
on. Still no update here... sometimes we get even 3-4 crashes per-image.

** qmlscene crashed while running test_can_launch_multiple_applications
[Time counter 2/7]
 -> Bug incomplete, waiting for crash file to include more info

Best regards,
