    • 30 blockers still left for beta 4
  • Sync (tracy)
    • a couple dozen fixes have landed for beta9. Verifications are in progress.
    • No blockers for beta9, at this point. There are less then 20 Fx4 Sync blockers remaining. Everything has been pushed to betaN, the bulk of those are places dependent.
    • The Sync teams goal is to be completely done prior to the first Fx4 rc. But again they are reliant on the places team for fixes.

    • "Making Mozilla better" video is complete. Will be circulating it to the team for feedback.
    • Last week worked with Rainer on two other videos:
      • Edited footage of the QA presentation at the Summit. Have a rough cut of that
      • Edited footage of marcia's Bugzilla lightning talk at Summit. Need to add some screenshots to the video.
  • Tomcat
    • see above - also helping waverley with IT Issues (IRC/Litmus etc)
  • Accessibility:
    • Found that the new contentmodal alerts in FX4 aren't accessible: bug 622495, but a few corrections to the XUL markup should fix this easily, should just be on the radar.
    • Waiting for reviews on bug 498015, which is a bug that will fix a range of other bugs simultaneously when it lands, all of which are blockers for FX4. This is our TOP bug currently, blocking a few things also in my work since some content rendering is currently inaccurate.
