Friends of the Tree

Thanks to our new Friends of the Tree

  • Bob Lord For triaging S/MIME and certificate bugs in the Thunderbird/Security component.

Thunderbird 3.1 (Lanikai)

Lanikai Alpha 1


Not much in 3.1a1, because it hasn't been driven much. I've posted a message proposing that, in the interest of getting in the habit of doing regular releases, we proceed with the following schedule anyway:

  • String/code freeze date: 2010-01-12 (Tuesday)
  • Branch Gecko, cut hackbranch, land async changes: 2010-01-13 (Wednesday)
  • l10n-mozilla-1.9.2 freeze date: 2010-01-18 (Monday)
  • Build/relbranch date: 2010-01-19 (Tuesday)
  • Ship date: 2010-02-03 (Wednesday)

Are there reasons not to go forward with this?

Review / Waiting

MDC (instructions


  1. Draft Support Workflow Document - NEW this week - Updated Normal Workflow section with a tagging convention for duplicate Get Satisfaction Topics <-- Again, feedback please! Edit the page, etc.
  2. The GS topics that were triaged at the January 18, 2010 meeting
  3. Issues to be reviewed at the next GS Triage meeting scheduled for January 5, 2010 - Please tag topics "review" if you think they need to be reviewed because they cause customer pain
  4. SUMO for MoMo aka SuMoMo - SuMoMo project plan - final round of "meta content", config and sysadmin tasks expected to be done Thursday morning after 3.0.1, hoping to launch Thursday or next week
    1. GS workaround for SSL and satisfaction search widget doesn't work when logged in so will ping GS but probably have to implement workaround which is to not serve up non SSL Satisfaction Search Widgets to IE 6,7 and 8 users, instead serve just a simple link
    2. content - done except Thunderbird 3 for Windows 7 users
  5. Key Support stats from the following graphic:
    1. approximately 70/ day (494/7 slightly lower than last week), # of visitors 58000 seems like GS has fixed their stats bug although seems high)

Lightning Updates

  • Still waiting for Sunbird 1.0b1 l10n builds
  • Philipp mostly swamped with exams, will plan 1.0b2 soon
  • Lightning 1.0b1 seems to ve going well, not many complaints.


Ideas to make the meeting more productive :

  • Most people wanting to know dates should find it here and they don't - maybe we could make the planet post from the meeting a bit prettier and easier to read than the half/geeky think that appears on
  • Most people don't know that we have a weekly meeting. Maybe make the meeting more "visible" ?

Description of UCOSP by bwinton. UCOSP is 1-term undergraduate project course that's run out of the University of Toronto, taking students from all over Canada and the USA. bwinton is using the status whiteboard to mark bugs being worked on by students in this project.

Status Updates

  • 3.1 driving
    • drove code to frozen
    • coordinated sync fix work, l10n, final code freeze work
  • 2010 planning work
  • Installed (mostly) mandatory patches-require-tests policy.
  • Sid has been doing a bunch of work getting mozmill to work with 3.1
  • Windows and Mac are generally green -
  • Need to look into Mozmill 1.3, and will roll out to production boxes once that's sorted (perhaps before linux issues are sorted)
  • Reviews and driving
  • Helped out on Get Satisfaction issues
  • Windows installation was corrupted, still recovering from that.
  • Got 4GB offline store limit removal patch through review process
  • New beta looks good. Little problems reported.
  • Integration of TB 3.0 source code seems to have solved most gloda issues and integration of it in to the Search Messages window is looking likely for our Eudora 8.0 release.
  • Updated SeaMonkey buildbots to mirror Firefox setup even more closely (bug 539780), hopefully being able to share this with Thunderbird.
  • Checked in patch for a CC* release bustage in buildbotcustom (bug 537913).
  • Switched CC* release automation to using ChatZilla from hg (bug 537461).

I've been heads down playing with the old Mozilla SOAP package, evaluating it for possible use with Exchange Server web services. I've got it compilable in a TB 3.0 build as a binary extension using frozen linkage, and just started writing unit tests to take it through its paces.
