Discussion Topics

  • items of concern on the 1.9 planning sheet
    • Rework array reflection through IDL -- sounds like an API change that would break extensions for 1.9.1 with little immediate value. Agreement not to change this for 1.9.1
    • Fix proxies for non-threadsafe objects -- do we need this for 1.9.1, or can we instead pound on XPCOMGC which bypasses the problem altogether? Will this and following issues with the content team
    • Reparent tabs -- sounds really scary, especially on a 6-week timeframe
    • content in general? Is everything listed as 1.9.1 really realistic in 6 weeks? Can we early cut and focus on the most important things?
    • JS in general -- we've loaded spidermonkey veterans on 1.9.1 and jorendorff/jimb on actionmonkey... perhaps we should rethink who's working on what so that we have some veterans helping with AM/moz2?
      • What's the relationship of shaver's project to ActionMonkey? So far, complementary. dmandelin expressed concern that the projects don't seem to be related.
      • bsmedberg to continue discussion via email.
