QA Status/Topics

Localization Topics

  • First l10n builds with M8. If we do so, it will increase total build time. Will the strings be frozen by then? or at least slushy?

Round table

  • Don't forget to add changes that may impact documentation to the Firefox 3 for developers page.

  • 5 weeks from Beta 1, how do we feel?
    • Content-handling: a bunch of stuff was pushed to M8

    • Firebug: sdwilsh not sure if he has cycles anymore. Mconnor to update by next week.
    • Places-sync: uninvestigated area. Dan mills will pursue online backups idea. Awaiting product definition decision (basil, schrep, ?)
    • Download-resume: not sure if the SoC student will be able to complete this work. Dmose to figure out this week.
