General Discussion

Action Item:

  • Andrew Smith's Border Image


  • Reminder that Sept 5 is M8 code freeze.
  • What we're working on:
    • 1.9 Blockers Only
    • Prioritizing those blockers which are high complexity and may have unknowns causing longer time to implement.
    • Security Bugs
    • Crashers
    • Memory Leaks and Performance
    • Hangs, Regressions, and other broken features.
  • Note that on Sept 5th we'll go into Tree Control/Threat Level Red which means: all checkins require explicit approval flags.
  • On approval flags, we believe we have the queries fixed, but if you find that a component for 1.9 is missing in one of the either the approval queries or the triage queries, please email the driver for that component know via email and request that it be added.
  • After M8, We'll resume Tree Control Level Yellow: 1.9+, wanted-1.9 bugs auto approved, other changes require explicit approval flags.

Note: See this dev-planning thread for more info.
