In Progress



  1. Top 5 GS Thunderbird 2 Support Topics (code in progress: ) basically the same as last week, no Anti-Virus this week. Confirmed with ss that the anti-virus false alarms are simply mistakes by the Vendors i.e. AVG and Trend Micro and not a problem with the Thunderbird 2 process (i.e. vendors were notified for properly)
    1. Cannot receive email
    2. Cannot send email
    3. Windows 7 - it works well for some not so well for others
    4. address book (how to use, how to export contacts)
    5. email lost (fixed by compacting folders and deleting .msf)
  2. Thunderbird 3 Beta Top Support Issues (not many reported, starting to monitor to see what we can improve for post 3.0)
    1. Thunderbird 3 Beta 4 restarts after closing
    2. Windows 7
  3. SUMO for MoMo tracker ticket:, gozer spinning up staging instance for this morning (Tues), looks like we can get inexpensive MoMo-ized port of Fennec theme from Gary Cunningham-Lee
  4. Key Support stats from the following graphic:
    1. approximately 20 / day (143/7, basically same as l last week if we subtract the Raindrop topics)
    2. total new topics:143 total replies: 116 (Ruby Code)
      1. date:20091020 #new support topics:20 resolved: 11
      2. date:20091021 #new support topics:14 resolved: 6
      3. date:20091022 #new support topics:18 resolved: 11

MoMo folks: 2 from Philipp and 1 from Martin of Lightning (thanks!) 59 from Roland,19 from Ludo (thanks!) 1 from Mark Banner (thanks!), Bienvenu 9 (thanks!), 1 from Andrew Sutherland (thanks!)
    4. happiness metric: API doesn't have happiness emotitags, asked GS staff about that, code in progress:, manual happiness metric = 109 - 59 = 50 (7 last week), 41 Hendrix messages (generally Hendrix messages are unhappy but this week we had 4 happy messages about Gloda! Thanks!) - bug to track down Hendrix for Thunderbird 3 and get rid of it as much as possible
