Feature Work

Account Provisioner

  • There are still some open issues Squib will be working on.


Thunderbird Conversations

Work on bug fixes, 2.0b1 submitted to AMO for approval, waiting for Archaeopteryx to approve it (needs an admin to make a beta version public). Next: polish the new conversation menu, fix the remaining bugs, and release b2 early.

Thunderbird Sync
Account Summary
Ubuntu Unity Integration
  • Still no word on CD space.
  • Unity Launcher and Messaging Menu extensions set to be bundled with PPAs when next beta of TB 5.0 is released.
  • De-RDF patch got some review from jcranmer (thanks!), and still undergoing review. A reminder that this needs to land this cycle for EDS integration to work, which is a must-have for our Ubuntu integration work.
