Thunderbird Meeting Details


Action Items


  • dmose to do clarifying post about how TB 3.0 roadmap should work w.r.t feature freeze, string freeze, etc.


Thunderbird:Shredder a2

  • All blockers believed fixed.
  • Mac Tinderbox is having issues (bug 444949). gozer has provided us with hand-spun bits to tide us over; once we get some folks dogfooding these enough to believe they're about right, we can declare a branch date.
  • Inadvertantly landed patches during closure: worth being concerned?
  • 3.0a2 Tracking Doc
  • Need to decide what to do w.r.t. reopening the tree
    • dmose waiting for confirmation that mac build is ok.
    • Wait until Mac tinderbox is back, then re-open tree.

Move to Hg

  • Waiting for reviews on bug 444686.
  • Once they are done, we could go ahead and move, but would not be able to build with Lightning (bug 442566 - also awaiting reviews).
  • Todo for move:
    • Close tree
    • copy appropriate parts of cvs to comm-central
    • apply build system patches
    • update buildbots
    • run with it
    • Probably a day's
  • SeaMonkey buildbots seem to be ready to go.
  • Thunderbird buildbots/nightlies would be the only remaining issue.
    • buildbots easy to move across
    • gozer needs access for uploading nightlies etc.
    • gozer hasn't got the real reference platforms yet.
  • Draft documentation at devmo - see links at top of page for main content.
  • Timing:
    • We have this week and next week before the Firefox Summit.
    • Doing a move late next week could mean that we get some issues that we need to resolve whilst we at the summit (awkward).
    • Will try and do it before the summit, but see how things (reviews, buildbots) go

  • Sun Hardware
    • Performed the various firmware/BIOS upgrades recommended by Sun, and since then, the systems have been standing, so this issue might be resolved.
  • triage/review various install bugs, as a result of my encounter with problems with TB20014: bug 443744 prompt for new account after installing TB20014, bug 442702 install of TB20014 fails with "invalid opcode" error message
  • continue prep for QA of Shredder Alpha 2
  • close 43 bugs / participate in bugday
  • re-reviewed mass cleanup/QA of mailinews. Through spot checking bugs, and Nikolay's help checking whether reporters still exist, determined there probably aren't any substantial subsets that lends itself to bug comments or special attention. And there is also no need to save off, for future attention, previously mass changed bugs - 105 dated 2007-06-21 ss and 646 dated < 2007-04-21 (roughly pre TB2.0). In short, IMO most of these bugs are legit, despite the fact that most haven't been touched in years, and many were confirmed in the days when confirming when reported was the norm.
