Round table

  • Don't forget to add changes that may impact documentation to the Firefox 3 for developers page.
  • reminder to use #granparadiso on IRC for discussion of milestone-releated deliverables, features, QA testing, etc; it's to be the defacto location for chatter regarding Gran Paradiso releases
  • when is the best time to land the next sqlite upgrade? (still a little bit of work to do before that becomes trivial)
    • tracked by bug 385067, will land post-M7 but need to block on it for M8
    • needed for Places and a variety of other measures
  • NSS codesize increase (9% of entire binary)
    • this is a gecko issue
    • bz filed bug 389343 to track it, some codesize increase seems gratuitous
    • if it can't be reduced, we'll need to take a hard look at the value of taking it vs. the cost to not taking it
  • 6 weeks from b1, how do we feel?
    • content-handling: a bunch of stuff was pushed to M8, not a clear sense
    • ux: a little worried about non-P1 design items, add-ons UX, and theme work
    • firebug: sdwilsh not sure if he has cycles anymore
    • places-sync: uninvestigated area
    • download-resume: not sure if the SoC student will be able to complete this work

General Discussion

  • Offline & Malware (Dave Camp):
    • Offline stuff is all checked in and should be ready to go for M7
    • The new safebrowsing protocol implementation is ready to check in, I'll be doing that once I get in to the office tomorrow (I can't stay awake long enough for another 1- or 2- hour tinderbox cycle).
    • The docshell changes to get malware checking on page loads: I didn't get this finished until this afternoon, bz says he won't be able to review this in time for the M7 freeze tomorrow, and that he'd rather we land this at the beginning of M8.
