We got a lot of stuff done in 2015q1--it was a busy quarter.
Things to know:
Input is Mozilla's product feedback site.
Fjord is the code that runs Input.
We maintain project details and plans at https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Input.
I am Will Kahn-Greene and I'm the tech lead, architect, QA and primary developer on Input.
This is the quarter in review!

Input finally shrunk, though this is probably due to switching from the South migration system to the Django 1.7 migration system and in the process of doing that ditching most of our old migration code.
L Guruprasad worked through 16 bugs this quarter--that's awesome!
Adam worked on the Thank You page overhaul. It's not quite done, but it's in a good place--I'll be finishing up that work in 2015q2.
Ricky finished up the Django 1.7 update just in time for Django 1.8 to be released. In doing that work, we cleaned up a lot of code, shed a bunch of dependencies and are in a much better place in regards to technical debt. Yay!
Thank you to everyone who contributed!
Django 1.7 upgrade: We upgraded to Django 1.7. That's a big deal since Django 1.8 was just released so Django 1.6 isn't supported anymore. Django 1.7 has a new migration system, so there was a lot of work required to upgrade Input.
Heartbeat v2: We did most of Heartbeat v2 in 2014q4, however it didn't really launch until 2015q1. We did a bunch of work to tweak things for the release.
Alerts v1: We added an Alerts API. Input collects a variety of feedback-type data. After several discussions, we decided that it was a better idea to have alert systems live outside of Input, but push alert events to Input. This allows us to develop alert emitting systems faster because they're outside of the Input development process. Further, it relaxes implementation details. The Alerts API has GET and POST abilities and lets us capture and report on arbitrary alert events.
Remote troubleshooting data capture: We finished this work in 2015q1. It's now rolled out for specific products and in all locales.
12 Factor App: At some point, we're going to move Input to AWS. In the process of doing that, we're going to change how Input is configured and deployed and switch to a 12-factor-app-friendly model. I spent a good portion this quarter cleaning things up and redoing configuration so it's more 12-factor-app-compliant.
There's still some work to do, but it'll be easier to do as we're in the process of switching to AWS and know more about how the infrastructure is going to be structured.
Snow removal: I live next town over from Lowell, MA, USA. We got 118 inches of snow this winter the bulk of which came in a 6-week period where it pretty much snowed every three days. It was exhausting.
I did a lot of shoveling, but never really solved the problem. However, it did subside after a while and now it's gone.
2015q1 went by really fast and we got a lot of stuff done and we worked through a lot of technical debt, too. It was a good quarter.
Update April 21st, 2015
LGuruprasad found a bug in the script that caused commits-by-author information to be wrong. Fixed the script and updated the stats!
