  • mak
    • working on blockers (see above for status)
    • done reviews
    • bug 483980 - Allow history/bookmark observer components to register with a startup category. Looking into this, fixed leaks and a possible Places bug.
    • bug 493538 - Crash in [@ nsNavHistory::RecalculateFrecenciesInternal(mozIStorageStatement*, int)]. Most likely blocker.
    • bug 392193 - first run migration / import from ie, opera and safari browser can be slow, migration should use "run in batch". Landed with awesome numbers.

  • adw

    • clear recent history/privacy blockers
      • CRH deletes places, not visits bug 491883 awaiting Johnathan's review. Patches are really simple.

  • MDC
    • the migration guide needs history api and dynamic container examples. (dietrich)
    • the design documents linked from MDC need to be written. can probably cull from the old design overview docs.
    • Documentation non-existent:
      • dynamic containers (MaK77)
        • will do as soon as they are working properly


  • bug 489173 Issue with size of places.sqlite and Google Toolbar
