# A. Replace Claws Mail with Icedove
-## A.n. description of subsection
+- A.1.3. Integrate Icedove into Tails
-- A.n.m. description of deliverable: ticket numbers
+ We amended the strategy we had in mind initially and made it more
+ incremental. If time allows, a first stage will be to include
+ Icedove in Tails 1.7 (2015-11-03), but without the Icedove account
+ setup wizard. During this first stage, Torbirdy's own account setup
+ wizard will be used. And the second stage will be about securing
+ Icedove's wizard (#6154). If this works out as we hope, Tails users
+ will be able to start using Icedove two months earlier than what we
+ planned initially, and the transition period from Claws Mail will be
+ longer, (and thus smoother) for users.
- status summary:
+ We started implementing this plan (#10285), set up team coordination tools,
+ and triaged what is a blocker for the first stage, from what is not.
- * what was done
- * what is the outcome (how it makes Tails better)
- * what was not done, and why
+ Then we worked on the "Torbirdy uses Arabic as a default locale"
+ bug, submitted a pull request upstream, that was accepted (#9821).
+
+- A.1.4. Provide a migration path for our users from Claws Mail to Icedove
+
+ We decided how long to keep Claws Mails once we have Icedove
+ (#10010), and initiated work on the migration for users of Tails
+ persistence feature (#9498).
# B. Improve our quality assurance process
+## B.2. Continuously run our entire test suite on all those ISO images once they are built
+
+- B.2.1. Adjust our infrastructure to run tests in parallel
+
+ Great progress was made on this front, and more specifically on the
+ last remaining chunk of it: firing up a clean test runner virtual
+ machine before each test suite run. It was tricky to implement this
+ in a non-racy way, but we now have a working prototype that we are
+ confident fixes the issues we have seen earlier (#9486, #10215).
+ Along the way we encouraged a few Debian developers to take care of
+ a package we rely on (`jenkins-job-builder`), and one of them
+ promptly took it over and updated it to the version we need (#9646).
+
+- B.2.2. Decide what kind of ISO images qualify for testing and when,
+ how to process, advertise, and store the results (#8667)
+
+ Early in September, we reached an agreement on all discussion topics
+ that were left pending in August, such as how to archive videos from
+ test suite runs. As can be seen in the "Help Jenkins integration"
+ section below, our test suite team promptly started adjusting their
+ code to match what we will need on the Jenkins deployment.
+
+ <https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/automated_builds_and_tests/automated_tests_specs/>
+
+- B.2.3. Research and design a solution to generate a set of Jenkins ISO test jobs
+
+ Some research and experiments were done for sending ISO images that
+ shall be tested to the test suite runner virtual machines (#9597),
+ and major blockers were removed in the underlying infrastructure.
+ Some of our Puppet code saw a nice refactoring in this process.
+ On the same topic, we reached a consensus regarding what "old" ISO image
+ to use for tests that require two images, such as upgrade tests
+ (#10117). And here as well, test suite developers promptly
+ implemented what we needed (#10147).
+
+ <https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/automated_builds_and_tests/jenkins/>
+
+## B.3 Extend the coverage of our test suite
+
+### General improvements
+
+- Filesystem shares are incompatible with QEMU snapshots: #5571
+
+ We have come up with a short-term strategy that will work well with
+ our current workflow. In addition we have our eyes on a long-term
+ technical solution that will require adding a small feature into
+ upstream QEMU. This is, however, out of the scope of this
+ deliverable.
+
+### Help Jenkins integration
+
+These changes, on the test suite side, were prompted by the ongoing
+work on "B.2. Continuously run our entire test suite on all those ISO
+images once they are built".
+
+It should be noted that many of the things mentioned here also greatly
+assist developers when debugging the automated test suite.
+
+- Leverage Cucumber's formatter system for debug logging: #9491
+
+ This makes it easier to have clean console logging while still
+ keeping the full debug log in a separate file. Consequently it will
+ be easier to get an overview of how a test is currently running.
+
+- Capture individual videos for failed scenarios only: #10148
+
+ This will both make these video artifacts more manageble and useful
+ for the developers (more focused, better granularity), and will save
+ a lot of disk space on our servers by excluding videos of tests that
+ succeeded and hence isn't very interesting.
+
+- Make the old Tails ISO default to the "new" ISO: #10147
+
+ This compromise will test 90% of what we want to test, and simplify
+ the Jenkins setup by eliminating the need to share multiple ISO
+ artifacts to the test suite context.
+
+### B.3.6. Fix newly identified issues to make our test suite more robust and faster
+
+#### Performance improvements
+
+- Snapshot improvements: #6094, #8008
+
+ The proof-on-concept that was written as part of B.3.4 has matured
+ into a reliable implementation and
+ it is basically done; only fine-tuning and style improvements
+ remain. It is expected to be ready for the Jenkins deployment in
+ Milestone III, and will allow us to run 33% more tests. It will add
+ less overhead for new tests using persistence in the future, and
+ thus complete "B.3.9. Optimize tests that need a persistent volume"
+ three months in advance.
+
+- Use the more efficient x264 encoding when capturing videos: #10001
+
+ This will reduce the CPU load on the host running the automated test
+ suite, as well as reduce its runtime with a few percent.
+
+- Optimize IRC test using waitAny: #9653
+
+ In case there are connection issues, this may save several minutes
+ per instance by waiting for both the failure and success condition
+ in parallel, instead of serially.
+
+#### Robustness improvements
+
+Some of what follows was part of a project we have with
+another sponsor.
+
+- Avoid nested FindFailed exceptions in waitAny()/findAny(): #9633
+
+ This works around a race condition due to a bug in Rjb that made
+ these helpers fail with some probability depending on the host
+ hardware.
+
+- Import logging module in otr-bot.py: #9375
+
+ Without this fix, the bot may occasionally fail due to it wanting to
+ use the logging facility when it is not in place.
+
+- Force new Tor circuit and reload web site on browser
+ timeouts: #10116
+
+ Given the inherent instability of Tor circuits, this will
+ drastically improve the robustness of all Tor Browser tests.
+
+- Pidgin's multi-window GUI sometimes causes unexpected behaviour
+ (e.g. one window covering the window we want to interact with):
+
+ * Focus Pidgin's buddy list before trying to access the tools
+ menu: #10217
+
+ * Wait for (and focus if necessary) Pidgin's Certificate windows: #10222
+
+- Develop a strategy for dealing with newly discovered fragile tests: #10288
+
+ By leveraging our Jenkins instance, following this strategy will
+ isolate individual robustness issues into individual branches while
+ keeping all other branches functional. Consequently it will be
+ easier to track and deal with future robustness issues.
+
+- Escape regexp used to match nick in CTCP replies: #10219
+
+ Due to how we randomize the nick name for the default Pidgin
+ accounts, there was a 10% chance to generate one with characters
+ that would have a special meaning when used inside regular
+ expressions, causing failures.
+
+### Writing more automated tests
+
+- B.3.8. Automatically test that udev-watchdog is monitoring the
+ right device: #9890.
+
+ This was completed and merged almost four months ahead of schedule.
# C. Scale our infrastructure
+## C.1. Change in depth the infrastructure of our pool of mirrors
+
+We started working on this project, and decided to handle the
+redirection on the client's side (for the record, the original plan
+was to do it server-side). We quickly put together a very rough
+proof-of-concept, and then moved on to update our plans for the next
+steps, accordingly to our new technological choice.
+
+The big picture is described on the corresponding blueprint:
+<https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/HTTP_mirror_pool/>
+
+- C.1.1. Specify a way of describing the pool of mirrors
+
+ We picked a serialization format (JSON) that matches our
+ implementation choices, and started researching what would be the
+ best naming scheme for mirrors, taking into account future HTTPS
+ hardening we have in mind, and support in various popular web
+ servers (#10294).
+
+- C.1.3. Design and implement the mirrors pool administration process and tools
+
+ We settled on ikiwiki overlays for integration into our website, and
+ on using Git and SSH to store and convey the configuration (#8637).
+
+- C.1.2. Write & audit the code that makes the redirection decision
+
+ We did some prototyping work (#8639), and then started refactoring
+ it so that the code can be reused by other components that will need
+ to implement the same redirection scheme client-side (#10284).
+
+## C.2. Be able to detect within hours failures and malfunction on our services
+
+This deliverable is technically due for January 15, but we kept on
+working on it.
+
+- C.2.1. Research and decide what monitoring solution to use: #8645
+
+ We completed experiments and comparisons between monitoring systems,
+ and settled on Icinga 2. We started looking for solutions regarding
+ the single requirement our ours that it does not satisfy.
+
+ <https://tails.boum.org/blueprint/monitor_servers/>
+
+- C.2.2. Set up the monitoring software and the underlying
+ infrastructure: #8646, #8647
+
+ We found hosting for our monitoring setup, got access to the
+ machine, and installed an operating system on it.
+
+## C.4. Maintain our already existing services
+
+This covers "C.4.3. Administer our services upto milestone III" until
+the end of September.
+
+Aside of the usual security updates and taking care of daily requests
+coming from the Tails development community, we did some resources
+planning, and updated the system requirements for the VM that will be
+used as a failover for our critical services (#10243) and looked for
+hosting that would meet our needs (#10244). We have an initial
+agreement with a hosting organization, and will follow-up on
+this shortly.
# D. Migration to Debian Jessie
+## D.1. Adjust to the change of desktop environment to GNOME Shell
+
+- D.1.1. Adjust to the change of desktop environment to GNOME Shell
+
+ We completed the work started on our "Shutdown helper" applet for
+ Jessie (#8302): visually impaired users can now use it, and we made sure it
+ is integrated with our translation system.
+
+ We cleaned up the desktop Applications menu (#8505).
+
+## D.6. Upgrade Tails-specific tools to Debian Jessie technologies
+
+- D.6.1. Port Tails-specific tools from udisks 1 to udisks 2
+
+ We followed up on the persistent volume assistant's porting to
+ udisks 2, and made sure it does not trigger spurious GNOME
+ notifications that could confuse users (#9280).
+
+- D.6.3. Port WhisperBack, our integrated bug reporting tool, to Python 3
+
+ Native SOCKS support was completed, which was the only missing piece
+ to make WhisperBack work great on Jessie and Python 3 (#9412).
+
+## Additional improvements that were not planned
+
+- When starting Tails in a virtual machine that runs with non-free
+ technology (and does not hide this fact), users are now warned about
+ the risks (#5315).
+
+- Simplify printers administration: it can now be done without having
+ to set an administration password, just like it was back when Tails
+ was based on Debian Squeeze (#8443). This removes a usability
+ pain-point, namely the need to restart Tails when one realizes too
+ late they need to print a document, and should have set an
+ administration password. In passing, we noticed that AppArmor
+ blocked adding a printer on Jessie, and fixed it (#10210).
# E. Release management
+
+- Tails 1.6 was released on 2015-09-22 [1]:
+
+ * Upgrade Tor Browser to version 5.0.3 (based on Firefox 38.3.0 ESR).
+ * Upgrade I2P to version 0.9.22 and enable its AppArmor profile.
+ * Fix several issues related to MAC address spoofing:
+ - If MAC address spoofing fails on a network interface and this
+ interface cannot be disabled, then all networking is now
+ completely disabled.
+ - A notification is displayed if MAC address spoofing causes
+ network issues, for example if a network only allows
+ connections from a list of authorized MAC addresses.

-email different recipients depending on what triggered the build

-
-Otherwise, we could have Jenkins email some pipe script that will
-forward to the right person depending on 1. whether it's a base
-branch; and 2. whether the build was triggered by a push or by
-something else. This should work if we can get the email notification
-to pass the needed info in it. E.g. the full console output currently
-has "Started by timer" or "Started by an SCM change", but this is not
-part of the email notification. Could work, but a bit hackish and all
