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]. We can still only wait on the Google front right now. Didn't hear anything about open Geolocation service yet. No easy solution in sight.

SeaMonkey 2.0.9

open blockers (1) blocker requests (0) fixed (30)

  • Based on Gecko and in sync with Firefox 3.5.14, should already be out but delayed by a rebuild of FF 3.6.11, see Releases.
  • Builds have been created and are available for testing from FTP and on the beta channel.

SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 1

open blockers (1) targeted (2) fixed (96)

  • Looks like testing is OK, release targeted for TODAY (October 19th).
  • Currently waiting on KaiRo having time to write an announcement, and finishing the relnotes (as nobody else takes on those tasks unfortunately), and getting bouncer done, files pushed, et cetra.

SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2

open blockers (2) blocker requests (4) targeted (2) fixed (11)

(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, b2 (feature freeze) probably in late October; final to be decided later.
  • Unsure how this fits Firefox 4 plans as they are still trying to get to their feature freeze.
  • PPC situation is still unclear, Beta 1 is broken there.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for last two (full) weeks: 36 new, 23 fixed, 9 triaged.

  • Fix rate is good but slowing down last week, triage continues to be weak. Should do more there.
  • Good further triage targets could come out of looking at the component bug counts, pick yours!

Major wanted/needed features:


Needing help, Unowned, Stalled
  • bug 460953 kill-rdf port.
  • bug 436794 Enable Mac OS X system address book per default and add UI.
    • SM UI needed, unowned, helpwanted.
  • bug 449728 Drag tabs between windows.
  • bug 477845 Build a standalone (Gecko 2.0) Composer. [kaze]
    • kaze is currently job hunting so doesn't have much time to spend on this.
    • bug 477840 Backport KompoZer to Composer (Depends on bug 477845).
    • kaze has done a ton of work there. We still need 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).
  • bug 523274 Complete new default theme icon set.
  • 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.
  • bug 507841 Port Bug 422814 - Make account configuration quick, easy, and more secure (autoconfig, Quick Account Setup).
  • bug 573538 No options for Safe-Mode.
  • bug 533908 SeaMonkey Mail: tabs not restored [misak]
    • status/progress?
  • bug 570004 Popup/"doorhanger" notifications [Neil]
    • Implementation moved to bug 595810.
    • Geolocation implemented.
    • Login manager themeing waiting for review from IanN.
  • bug 566138 Better integration with Windows 7 taskbar
    • bug 581526 Add SeaMonkey support for the Windows 7 jump list [mcsmurf]
    • status/progress?
  • bug 576970 Port Sync UI to SeaMonkey trunk [InvisibleSmiley]
    • Initial patches almost done. Ported late build change. Next: Address nits, continue reviews, port more dialog changes.

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

  • We will need to take a close look at Lightning, which is mainly targeting Thunderbird.
    • Lightning 1.0 beta 1 is for SM2.0 and TB3.0, 1.0 beta 2 is for TB3.1 (Gecko 1.9.2), 1.0 beta 2 will probably be Gecko 2.0-based.
