It's the weekly report on the state of triage in Firefox-related components. I apologize for missing last week’s report. I was travelling and did not have a chance to sit down and focus on this.
Flow (the ‘\[qf:p[1:3]\]’ whiteboard tags) or existing work (the
‘\[js:p[1:3]\]’ whiteboard tags) will be moved to the backlog (P3)
for review after the Firefox 57 release. See
Please make sure you’ve made it clear what, if anything will happen with these bugs.

What should we do with these bugs? Bulk close them? Make them into P3s? Bugs without decisions add noise to our system, cause despair in those trying to triage bugs, and leaves the community wondering if we listen to them.
Methods and Definitions
In this report I talk about bugs in Core, Firefox, Firefox for Android, Firefox for IOs, and Toolkit which are unresolved, not filed from treeherder using the intermittent-bug-filer account*, and have no pending needinfos.
By triaged, I mean a bug has been marked as P1 (work on now), P2 (work on next), P3 (backlog), or P5 (will not work on but will accept a patch).
A triage decision is not the same as a release decision (status and tracking flags.)
Age of Untriaged Bugs
The average age of a bug filed since June 1st of 2016 which has gone without triage.
Untriaged Bugs in Current Cycle
Bugs filed since the start of the Firefox 55 release cycle (March 6th, 2017) which do not have a triage decision.
Recommendation: review bugs you are responsible for
Untriaged Bugs in Current Cycle Affecting Next Release
Bugs marked status_firefox56 = affected and untriaged.
Enhancements in Release Cycle
Bugs filed in the release cycle which are enhancement requests, severity = enhancement, and untriaged.
Recommendation: product managers should review and mark as P3, P5, or RESOLVE as WONTFIX.
High Priority Bugs without Owners
Bugs with a priority of P1, which do not have an assignee, have not been modified in the past two weeks, and do not have pending needinfos.
Recommendation: review priorities and assign bugs, re-prioritize to P2, P3, P5, or RESOLVE.
Stalled High Priority Bugs
There 159 bugs with a priority of P1, which have an assignee, but have not been modified in the past two weeks.
Recommendation: review assignments, determine if the priority should be changed to P2, P3, P5 or RESOLVE.
* New intermittents are filed as P5s, and we are still cleaning up bugs
after this change, See
If you have questions or enhancements you want to see in this report, please reply to me here, on IRC, or Slack and thank you for reading.
Alas, I have this novel to work on. :p 2,000 words on Dragon Pearl today! (I'm doing revisions, but I had to rip out a few chapters that weren't working and replace them with all-new ones, always thrilling.)

If you keep kosher and do not regard chicken as pareve, or if you don't do dairy, you won't want to add the goat cheese. (In that case you might add some olive oil, for mixing purposes.) And if you are gluten-free, you'll want to use gf pasta. But aside from those things, this recipe ought to work for most folks, I think, assuming that you eat pasta in the first place. Clean-up is also easy: one skillet, one pasta pot.
( Pasta with broccolini, chicken sausage, and goat cheese )
( The Defenders )
Given the way this season has been going I should probably talk about the last couple of episodes of Game of Thrones before the finale either leaks or some intern at HBO accidentally posts it.
( GoT, eps 5 & 6 )
2. The place where I live, which is mine, and is filled with art and photographs and things that are meaningful to me.
3. The glorious green world. I always want summer to last forever, and it won't, but I'm doing my best to enjoy it while it's here.
4. I got to take two and a half days of vacation last week, and they were really lovely.
5. There is rosé chilling in my fridge even now. :-)
How are y'all?
