Hi Dirkjan and Bruno,

"New strategy" was too strong a phrase for me to use. New organization of
how we track bugs for Android applications is better.

GeckoView is becoming the "common core" for Android applications. Mobile
applications like Focus, Klar, and Rocket have their specific code managed
in GitHub.

I'll late Dave Bolter answer your questions about what we are doing with
Firefox for Android going forward. He can speak better to our Android
roadmap.

But think of it like the Core/Firefox distinction on Desktop Firefox. If
it's in the browser window, it's GeckoView. If its in the browser
chrome/menus, it'll be in Firefox for Android, Klar, Focus, or Rocket.

Sincerely,

Emma Humphries
EPM/Bugmaster, Firefox
Mozilla

Hello,

I want to update you on discussions between Barbara Bermes, Andreas Bovens,
David Bolter, Susheel Daswani, Kevin Brosan and myself on unresolved and
untriaged bugs in Firefox for Android and the actions we're taking on the
bug backlog.

Since our strategy for mobile is changing, Susheel's team is focusing on a
small number of bugs in Firefox for Android which aren't in the GeckoView
component.

Non-GeckoView bugs which are not being worked on and have been modified in
the past 18 months (~580 days) will be re-prioritized as P5.

Unconfirmed, non-GeckoView bugs will be closed as incomplete.

Non-GeckoView and non-JimDb bugs unmodified in the past 18 months will be
closed as incomplete.

Bugs which are enhancement requests will be reviewed, and ones which won't
be taken up as features/enhancements will be resolved as wontfix.

To summarize:

*Bugs to close*

- Non-GeckoView, Non-JimDB bugs more than 560 days since last modified
https://mzl.la/2Jg2Co4 (~3,500)
- Unconfirmed bugs to close https://mzl.la/2L65rgk (~300)


*Bugs to re-prioritize*

- Bugs to move to P5: https://mzl.la/2L6SpMA (~2,000)


*Bugs to review or move*

- GeckoView bugs to move to new product (https://mzl.la/2N5M98s) (~120)
- Enhancements to be reviewed (https://mzl.la/2JfF6aB) (~190)


This work is detailed in
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1473195.

The BMO team will move the GeckoView bugs to a new product
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1460337.

I plan to do these moves on Wednesday the 25th of July.

If there is a non-GeckoView, non-enhancement, bug in Firefox for Android
which you know ought to be addressed, please needinfo Barbara Bermes and
Susheel Daswani on the bug so they can determine if it will be prioritized.
