jorlow: can a page cycler be easily hooked up to DRT?
[5:48pm] dglazkov: jorlow: it's not easy, because we can't keep snapshots of sites in public repo.
[5:48pm] • dglazkov is not a lawyer.
[5:49pm] jorlow: dglazkov: um..why do we need to put it in a public repo?
[5:49pm] dglazkov: jorlow: well.. that's a good question! 
[5:49pm] jorlow: chromium doesn't but runs page cycler bots publicly
[5:49pm] jorlow: the most important thing is knowing that a regression happened with perf stuff
[5:50pm] jorlow: it does suck that we can't release that (and apple can't release theirs, etc) but....something is better than nothing
[5:50pm] dglazkov: jorlow: let's file a bug and start talking about it there -- maybe we'll figure something out
[5:50pm] smfr: can't we write a script that bowdlerizes the test pages?
[5:50pm] smfr: and replace all the images with dummy images or something?
[5:51pm] jorlow: smfr: what test pages?
[5:51pm] jorlow: the layout tests?
[5:51pm] smfr: pages used by a page cycler
[5:51pm] dglazkov: smfr: hmm, that may work. We just need to make sure we still have meaningful tests 
[5:51pm] jorlow: well, then you're doing network requests
[5:51pm] smfr: e.g. the infamous PLT tests
[5:51pm] dglazkov: what are the PLT tests, btw?
[5:52pm] smfr: page load tests
[5:52pm] smfr: a bunch of pages scraped back in 2000 and cleaned up
[5:53pm] zecke: dglazkov: did you guys look into Mozilla's talos? at least they use GFDL licensed content... (even if it is not really representative for the web)
[5:53pm] dglazkov: smfr: well, duh  I mean, are they public?
[5:53pm] smfr: dglazkov: no
[5:53pm] jorlow: exactly  
[5:53pm] jorlow: zecke: I haven't heard of that
[5:53pm] jorlow: does sound interesting tho
[5:53pm] dglazkov: smfr: I quite like the bowdlerizer idea
[5:54pm] zecke: jorlow: IIRC: https://wiki.mozilla.org/StandaloneTalos
[5:54pm] jorlow: dglazkov:  ^^^
[5:54pm] jorlow: seems like a good start
[5:55pm] jorlow: er....dglazkov, smfr
[5:55pm] zecke: and back when working for Nokia, I did this: http://trac.webkit.org/wiki/QtWebKitPerformanceUtilities
[5:56pm] zecke: this way the scaper is public, the content is not.
