Thunderbird Meeting Details :


Action Items



  • Planning for a dry-run security firedrill build
    • Fire drill itself expected to happen after code freeze


Thunderbird 3 Developer Update

  • There will be a build 2 of RC 1.
    • Remaining code blockers ready to land waiting for tree to re-open following planned downtime of
    • Once blockers have landed we can start automation.

QA Updates

_Going on_ :

Testing of RC1 going strong - we've reached 90% test coverage on the largest tests sets. Results are visible at <>. Missing tests are related to Proxies. The QA team is busy following bugs and test results as well as testing. The team would like to thank all the people who signed in and are participating or will participate.

_This week_ :

Focus is going to be on testing RC1/build2 and following bug reports. So our focus is going to be on litmus, build2 and bugzilla.

_Crash stats_ :

No stats this week as rc1 is unreleased. We would like to note that some people are crashing while sending emails, or are having issues with nightlies and sending emails. This is likely due to an api change in TB that affects enigmail - if you are using enigmail please update to the latest nightly which fixes the issue.
