Description Ryosuke Niwa 2012-01-19 13:44:25 PST
As Dirk and I discussed on IRC, we should have --timeout <timeout> option in each port's DRT.

This will allow DRT to gracefully timeout instead of webkit.py detecting the timeout and restarting DRT.
Comment 1 Dirk Pranke 2012-01-19 13:47:46 PST
Note that this does not replace the timer in webkit.py; we still need that to protect against a failing DRT (as we see on Chromium, which doesn't have the timer in chromium.py; see bug 74039).

A partial motivation for this is that since the non-chromium DRTs have hard-coded watchdog timers, long --time-out-ms values don't work correctly. That's bad.

This will also allow us to clean up the no_timeout parameter added to the Driver interface in bug 76612.
