SeaMonkey Meeting Details


  • Who's taking minutes? -> Ratty

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn't been recorded in a bug) We should assign people to the open items.





  • Get permission from Google to use their geolocation JSON service [KaiRo]. Contact at Google says they don't want additional specific consumers of the service right now and want to enable some general way of accessing it "some time" - We can only wait right now. No easy solution in sight. Also, discussing a possible open Geolocation service.

SeaMonkey 2.0.6

fixed (48)

  • Based on Gecko, RELEASED on July 20.

SeaMonkey 2.0.7

open blockers (0) blocker requests (1) fixed (2)

  • Based on Gecko, target dates TBD, see Releases.
  • Release schedule will be synchronized with the next Firefox 3.5 release (3.5.12).

SeaMonkey 2.1 Alpha 3

open blockers (3) blocker requests (2) targeted (3) fixed (30)

(Further 2.1 scheduling:)

  • Please help updating the New 2.1 Features page as we go.
  • Plans for 2.1: 6-8 weeks per milestone, a3 in late July or early August, b1 in August/September, and a final in October/November.
  • This seems to match recently presented Firefox 4 plans relatively well - they'll go for beta really soon now and Final in the same timeframe as we have in those plans right now.
  • It would be good to get OOPP (Out Of Process Plugins) for SM2.1 (bug 545716) but we need some way to build libxul (bug 394502) to be able to build OOPP. Various Mailnews work has to be done (and is being done) for that to be possible.
  • The freeze for Firefox 4.0 Beta 1 has been carried out, and the Mozilla/Gecko version has been bumped to 2.0b2pre.
  • When can we freeze? When can we land places bookmarks?
  • Possible freeze date Tuesday 10th. August. This might give Neil enough time to review Places Bookmarks.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for last two (full) weeks: 50 new, 27 fixed, 24 triaged.

  • Fix rate is back up, esp. last week!
  • Good further triage targets could come out of looking at the component bug counts, pick yours!

Major wanted/needed features:


  • bug 423281 Help updates.
    • status/progress?
  • bug 483282 Make sure normal SeaMonkey use doesn't pay a price for having Venkman installed [Mnyromyr].
    • Needs at least a core patch landing for bug 364864 (nsICategoryManager::deleteCategoryEntry does not persist outside of component registration) which depends on bug 480851 getting fixed on trunk.
    • Mnyromyr hopes to get to look into Venkman now that he's released Mnenhy 0.8.
    • status/progress? Any hopes that this will still make 2.0?
  • bug 471346 Port GetDefaultFeedReader to SeaMonkey shell service [mcsmurf].
    • Landed on trunk, Callek and mcsmurf working to get it onto branch.
    • status/progress?


  • bug 460953 kill-rdf port [sgautherie].
    • Postponed until mcsmurf (or sgautherie) can resume work on it.
    • status/progress?
  • bug 436794 Enable Mac OS X system address book per default and add UI.
    • SM UI needed, unowned, helpwanted.
    • status/progress?
  • bug 410613 OpenSearch. helpwanted.
    • We need to check if OpenSearch can support all our existing functionality, for example the INTEPRETS section in Sherlock search plugins. Mnyromyr will check on that, and on how extensible the Firefox code is.
    • status/progress?
    • The current consensus it to get some basic functionality going with OpenSearch first. And then later to see how much of the old functionality we can reimplement in follow-ups.
  • bug 449728 Drag tabs between windows.
    • Currently unowned, helpwanted.
    • [InvisibleSmiley: I'm looking into this, finished an initial port, but no success yet]
  • bug 498596 Places bookmarks. [KaiRo]
    • Still waiting on reviews from Neil, patches have been split up into separate bugs per partial issue.
  • bug 480734 Satchel data editor ("Form Manager").
    • will be implemented in terms of Data Manager, see below.
  • bug 569341 Data Manager [KaiRo]
  • bug 477845 Build a standalone (Gecko 2.0) Composer. [kaze]
    • kaze will look into that once KompoZer 0.8 is done.
    • bug 477840 Backport KompoZer to Composer (Depends on bug 477845).
    • kaze has done a ton of work there. We're still trying to work out some organizational issues.
    • At the moment there is no active interest from MoMo for bringing standalone composer into comm-central. That's something we (KaiRo and kaze) will have to negotiate with the Thunderbird team (dmose).
    • status/progress?
  • bug 523274 Complete new default theme icon set.
    • A list of TODO icons is up in the bug.
    • Still needs quite a bit of work.
    • status/progress?
    • bug 522023 is working on improving the browser globe in task icons, etc..
  • bug 526210 Update the icon set for the SeaMonkey Modern Theme.
    • Some proposed icons got posted, we should take a look how to get that contribution into the product.
    • The rest is unowned so far.
    • status/progress?
  • bug 97023 Search/Find in page UI: toolbar instead of dialog [bfrisch].
    • LANDED!
  • bug 533908 SeaMonkey Mail: tabs not restored [misak].

      • Work in progress.

We also should take a look at the other items on 2.1-wanted Also the nominations need triaging.

  • We need to find a solution for Lightning, which is targeting Thunderbird 3.1 now.
    • Lightning 1.0 beta 1 is for SM2.0 and TB3.0, 1.0 beta 2 is for TB3.1 (Gecko 1.9.2). Further versions will probably be for 2.0-based releases.
