SeaMonkey Meeting Details


  • Who's taking minutes? -> mcsmurf
  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank
    • Callek

Action Items

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




  • Need to reward the nominees of the friends of the fish tank from this year (IanN)

Status of the SeaMonkey Buildbot Master and Tree

  • No Windows langpacks since 8th April on trunk. Needs investigating.
    • Comment from mcsmurf on this: Not clear what is meant by this, please clarify. xpi/win32/ folders on FTP server look fine. Also file a bug if something needs to be investigated/fixed.
  • Both our buildmaster and cb-seamonkey-linux64-01 VMs are dead due to hardware failures on the Parallels host.
    • sea-vm-linux64-1 has replaced cb-seamonkey-linux64-01 and is running jobs now.
    • sea-master1 is now the buildmaster (bug 827079 and bug 884454).
  • Tinderbox is EOLed. Callek has a newer version of TBPL that doesn't depend on tinderbox up and running.
    • Linux32 is fixed on trunk and aurora, windows trunk was fixed as of today. By tomorrow we'll have aurora and trunk nightlies building. Linux64 is still busted for 2.20+, Callek has a fix planned.
  • bug 740633 set up seamonkey HPs in scl3. Hardware installed and iLO configured. CentOS 6.3 installed.
  • comm-* will be building out of mozilla-* eventually. Jcrammer is working on this.

Fixed Stuff Since Last Meeting

  • Buildmaster up and running, although stuck behind a locked door atm.
    • Builds running and uploading, but tbpl and normal views into the process are not public.
    • ewong and Callek can manually look at builds and results, as well as generate releases
    • Callek is hand-approving requests for CLOSED TREE landings until he gets things visible enough to open the tree. (Callek only because these approvals preclude that Callek is watching results manually)

Release Train

  • Due to hardware failure, SeaMonkey 2.18b5 and SeaMonkey 2.18 were cancelled.
  • Instead we have moved directly to the 2.19 series of betas.
    • SeaMonkey 2.19 release date has been pushed back from 24th June to Tuesday 2nd July.
    • Users of 2.17.1 will be going directly to 2.19.
  • We will have a 2.20 beta out sometime shortly after that, assuming things build properly.
  • SeaMonkey 2.19 beta 1 was released on June 20
    • This was primarily a release to make sure the 2.19 series was ok without taking additional SeaMonkey changes, it was!
  • SeaMonkey 2.19 beta 2 expected out June 26
    • This is the release that folds in pending release-worthy SeaMonkey patches which were awaiting approval while the tree was closed from aformentioned hardware failure
  • Linux64 broken on comm-central and comm-aurora due to gtk header issues, (already fixed prior to hardware failure on linux32)
  • In last 48 hours we also fixed multiple issues preventing win32 and linux32 from building on gecko-24 based builds, we should see nightlies for both platforms as of today.

  • Current breakages:
    • Nothing significant at the moment.

    • Note: Please file bugs if you notice any landing on mozilla-central that might break us. Please don't depend on Ratty noticing such landings.
    • bug 769764 move proxy resolution to separate thread and remove sync api. Tracked in:
      • MailNews bug 791645 Rewrite calls to synchronous nsIProtocolProxyService::DeprecatedBlockingResolve with Async code before DeprecatedBlockingResolve disappears as well.

      • porting bug needed for the two changesets? Changes could be folded into bug 794772 above. *** IanN and Ewong are looking into this..
    • bug 839034 move markPageAsXXX methods to nsINavHistoryService. Tracked in:
    • bug 876553 Preview images in filepicker dont use exif orientation tag. This might change build-time dependency of GTK. FIXED in Core/Widget code.

Feature List, Planning

Private Browsing is now mostly complete and uplifted to 2.18 2.19. Most things should work but some edge cases have probably been missed. Hopefully any remaining bugs will be found before its release.

  • Testing would be appreciated! Please file bugs as blocking the meta bug 460895.
  • We need to figure out if we want a new about:privatebrowsing page which someone will have to write (bug 842439). Help content is being worked on bug 872000.

Bug statistics for the last two (full) weeks: 39 new, 14 fixed, 15 triaged.

  • Medium triaging effort.

Open reviews/flags: 23 review 7 super-review 2 ui-review 6 feedback

  • See Feature List page for major wanted/needed features.
    • Ratty suggests featuring one or more bugs from that page at each meeting.
  • Featured helpwanted bugs:

Good First Bugs

  • Note: The GFB list is open to all including our regular contributors.
  • Ratty is working on an updated GFB list, suggestions welcome.
  • Everyone is welcome to look at the GFBs or if they find a bug they want to tackle then ask in irc://moznet/seamonkey and we'll find a mentor if you need it.
  • New GFBs recently added:
  • Currently there are 24 GFBs open, 2 are being actively worked on.
  • List of Open mentored bugs.
    • Ratty notes that there are 23 bugs that are GFBs but without the mentor keyword. These need to be audited to see if they are really suitable as GFBs.
  • Mentors of stalled bugs should try to communicate with the assignees and if they can't work on them any more to unassign/free up those bugs.
