    Mardak: we can read them directly from package.json using simple prefs but i thought that since experimentprovider was already using a pref service i would just use that one instead of adding simple prefs
  • ursula
    ok updated the patch and filed the shield ticket. we can find a better place for the default prefs maybe when we do the patch for the shield ticket?
  • dmose
    ursula: sure. the typical way to do it is just creating a flat file.

  • dmose
    can someone forward me the onboarding email?
  • dmose
    i can't seem to find it
  • ursula
    the one from mhoye?
  • dmose
    no, the one from peter d
  • dmose
    about mverdi's new onboarding experience for the brtowser
  • ursula
    hrm can't find it either
  • dmose
    tspurway: can you forward the email with the link to the new onboarding experience stuff?

    ursula: for url bar hiding, is it exact matches or prefix matching? we use #HOME for about:home replacement
  • ursula
    the patch does an exact match and doesn't include the home part
  • ursula
    i can add it to it's a prefix match tho if that makes more sense
  • ursula
    did you see the patch on reviewboard?
  • Mardak
    nod
  • ursula
    should i change it to prefix match?
  • Mardak
    if it's already doing exact matches, simplest might just be adding a second url to check for
  • ursula
    sure thing, will add it
  • ursula
    k88hudson: since this is closed now mozilla/activity-stream #2020 and it was the last 10n ticket, can i close the meta bug for it?
  • dmose
    ursula: about that url bar hiding, i believe we want to make sure that it'll still work for an add-on version of activity stream, since we'll need one of those in order have a dev channel so that we can get enough testing on the appropriate channels of firefox in order to use the go faster approach for quick releases
  • dmose
    ursula: ah, now that i look more closely it mconley's comment, it looks like it should support that
  • dmose
    so never mind, i think :-)
  • ursula
    dmose: yep! i think it'll still work with the addon version
  • ursula
    but eventually we'll want to not do the addon version way
  • dmose
    ursula: what do you mean?
  • dmose
    ursula: delete the current add-on code path and only depend on the codepath that you'll be landing in firefox?
  • ursula
    yeah
  • dmose
    makes sense, as long as we wait for that new codepath to be on the release channel before removing the old one
  • ursula
    yep for sure
  • dmose
    ursula: any luck getting push-to-try working?
  • ursula
    so yeah it built just fine on try but for some reason it's failing waaaaaaay more tests than before :|
  • dmose
    that's odd
  • ursula
  • dmose
    any pattern in the new failures?
  • ursula
    haven't looked too in depth yet
  • dmose
    wow, yeah, that's a lot
  • Mardak
    ursula: at least looking at the Talos failures, it's red from tiles.services telemetry pings
  • ursula
    but the telemetry pref should be off
  • dmose
    newtab sends some tiles.services pings too
  • dmose
    and they may somehow still be live
  • dmose
    either before AS gets activated, or even during
  • dmose
    particularly since on slow machines it seems to take multiple seconds before opening a new tab will trigger AS rather than newtab
  • dmose
  • ursula
    oooh! so it's not just us
  • dmose
    :-)
  • dmose
    heh, good times
  • dmose
    my hg access was turned off because i hadn't used it in several months
