Origin-Trials process enhancements based on chromepostmortem377
Project Member Reported by sshru...@google.com, Apr 6 Back to list
go/chromepostmortem377 for details on crbug.com/702527

Proposals for process enhancements:
1. For any high-impact experiments like the Facebook one in this case, we should insist on testing it out on beta. 
2. For future origin trials, could we add a condition that the partner will have to make a debug environment available for our engineers prior to the start of the experiment so that we can QA?

I've made updates to the process guidance in various spots. The gist is that feature teams should engage with known external partners, and also monitor signups for large-scale developers (the signup form collects the expected # of page views with the feature). The goal would be to collaborate to ensure testing happens as early as possible.

I don't think it's feasible to require that partners make a debug environment available. That assumes:
a) The partner has such a debug environment
b) The partner is able to give access to the environment (there could be technical, legal, policy, .etc reasons why not)
c) Chrome engineers can run the right tests to uncover issues
