mak

Last week:

This week:

  • Finalize some of the many patches in my hg queue, and handle reviews in queue
  • Firefox triage
  • away on Friday

Blockers:

  • Same as the last week
    • Places API removals. Needs R and SR (mano, gavin)
    • Star button bug 748894. Needs UI-review (shorlander)

enn

  • Converted synchronous form history tests to be asynchronous. This way the database connection does not need to exposed so that synchronous calls cannot be made through the new form history module.
  • Addressed comments on bug 480356 about moving FillInHTMLTooltip to a method within the tooltip.
  • Reviewed downloads api patches
  • Updated patch for bug 407983 to support clipboardData property in cut/copy/paste events. Finishing up addressing review comments.

felipe

  • More discussions with Akeybl for changes in the pdf.js hotfix

mano

ttaubert

  • Still working on black borders in thumbnails caused by scrollbars.
  • Got the last netbook in Europe for newtab performance testing.
  • Worked on various pb-per-window, sessionstore and thumbnail bugs and regressions.
  • Did a couple of reviews, too.

adw

dolske

  • Planning for new hire (Mike de Boer!) as well as starting Q2/Q3 sketches.
  • Final review of bug 818340 which has attracted a bit of attention!
  • Met with cers and bsmedberg to sort out last details for removing PFS and improving plugin-install experience

mconley

Last week:

  • Australis tabs
    • Major performance wins by switching to PNGs for gradients and curves. MattN and I have an approach that takes Australis to performance parity with the current default theme, at least on bwinton's little netbook.
    • OSX tabs in titlebar patch now uses chromemargin instead of drawintitlebar, but causes some test failures. Currently investigating.
  • Australis customization
    • Split the Menu Panel code out from the Customization stuff, broke it up into two bugs: bug 844281 and bug 770135.
  • Downloads panel
    • bug 844341 is a regression we're tracking on Beta, caused by the Feedback add-on. WONTFIXing for Beta, will get fixed when we tear out toolkit download window support (bug 845403).
  • Bug triage

Next week:

  • Australis tabs
    • If MattN and I get the Windows patch landed, and perf is happy with it, I polish up the Linux port
  • Australis customization
    • Get rid of some fragments of customization code out of the menu patch, make panel and button state a thing that the customization UI code doesn't care about
  • Downloads panel
    • If I get time, start tearing out useToolkitUI support
    • Fix some small alignment problems in the panel that I'll try to fix in my spare time - unsure if they'll make it for Beta.
  • More triage!

Blockers:

  • Australis tabs work is blocked on MattN, debitrotting the Windows patch after shared themes landed
  • bug 813802 still up for review
  • Need detailed Downloads Panel alignment spec from shorlander, since I don't think I ever received a copy
