Thanks and happy coding! ^_^

I'd like to take this one as my first bug. However, I need to set up a build environment first.

Should I wait until I set it?

Hey Samuel – welcome to Bugzilla! :) For first bugs, we wait until there's a patch submitted before assigning the bug. As such you'll need to set up your build environment, create a patch, and submit it. If you need help at all during this process, feel free to ask questions in this bug or on irc.

Hi Michael, thank you for your reply. 

I'll try to set up my environment asap to come back here.

Hey Samuel. The patch looks good to me but it doesn't apply on the latest fx-team so I can't push it to our try test servers. Do you mind rebasing your patch? Our source files have moved so that's likely the issue. You can find them at mobile/android/base/java/...

Once the patch is rebased, we can send it to our test servers and once the push goes green, we can land it.

Also, I apologize for the delay – the team is at a conference this week so I've been intermittently available. I'll do my best to get to future patches more quickly.

Please use the "Need more information from" field when you post the rebased patch so I know to look at it.

I made a push to our try test servers (above).

Once the push goes green, you can add the "checkin-needed" keyword [1] to get your patch checked in. Note that all patches added via checkin-needed keyword need an associated green try run. Let me know if you need help reading the results.

There was a Robocop failed test but after while, it passed. 

Seems to me that everything went ok, right?

Our test suites often get intermittent failures and this looks like one of them. Our harness will automatically rerun failures (as you can see from the green push). Additionally, if you click a failing test suite, you can look at the bar on the bottom of the screen and see if it matches any existing known intermittent failures, which are also listed on that bar (your failure does match).

This looks good to me and is ready for check-in!
