We didn’t make it down to see totality, but my part of Michigan got about 80% eclipse coverage today, which was still pretty sweet. My son and I went to a library presentation this morning, where I was reminded about pinhole viewing, which led to this:
I’d ordered a solar filter for the 100-400mm lens on the camera. We also had some eclipse glasses from Amazon from a few weeks back.
I took a little over a hundred pictures, and was able to stitch some of the best into an animation.
Those black spots are sunspots. All in all, I’m pretty happy with how this turned out!
I also stitched together a static time-lapse, and added back a bit of color the filter stripped out. (Click to enlarge this one for a much better view.)
Didn’t get much else done today, but I’m okay with that. And maybe for the 2024, we’ll be able to make it down to see the total eclipse!

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

In April 1660, as he was about to depart France, where for nearly a decade he had sought refuge during the Interregnum, Charles II proclaimed his faith in parliamentary government. A wise commitment in light of past events, the king's pronouncement signalled more than self-interest, for it acknowledged the central importance of the Crown and Parliament-- even more, the Crown-in-Parliament-- to the future governing of the United Kingdom and, as was to transpire, the settler colonies, including Canada. "We do assure you ... that none of our predecessors have had a greater esteem of parliaments than we have ... we do believe them to be so vital a part of the constitution of the kingdom and so necessary for the government of it that we ever know neither prince nor people can be in any tolerable degree happy without them."
Echoing that royal testament, I have dedicated this book to senators and members of Parliament, upon whose support and service the people of Canada depend in the era of politics now unfolding.
