We discussed this in our meeting earlier this week, but I just wanted to
send a written reminder:

For compat/tech evangelism bugs opened against Firefox OS (either in
bugzilla or webcompat.com), we should check if the same issue is present
in Fennec and if so, update the title to reflect and leave a comment to
that effect. At that point it's business as usual.

For bugs that don't reproduce in Fennec, we'll leave these open and add
a comment that it doesn't reproduce in Fennec. Contributors are of
course welcome to work on these bugs. No need to close them.

thanks,

Current list of Tech Evangelism/Mobile/Firefox OS OPEN bugs
http://mzl.la/23wUvtj

As of now: 438 bugs found.

Maybe we could lower their priority in Bugzilla. P5?

A concrete example for trying to have an idea of a process for ex-Firefox OS bugs.


Bug 959137 - bendi.m.taobao.com coupon site never finishes loading, assumes global event variable in event handler
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=959137

The issue is happening in Firefox Android.
This bug is categorized as Firefox OS.

Two options:

A. Change the platform information (and eventually title) to be Android.
B. Or Duplicate the bug to make a specific one for Firefox Android.

I would prefer the option A:

1. to avoid duplications of bugs
2. to avoid old Firefox OS bugs being there for nothing
3. Fixing for Firefox Android will have the chance to make it work for Firefox OS

PS: Firefox OS only bugs stays as-is

Thoughts one.

Same. Let's do that.

I don't pay attention to priority numbers, but I guess P5 makes sense.
