Group Hug with Engineering

Those other people that make the thing that our websites are displayed on (Firefox, I think it's called) are here to tell us the haps.

Shipping Celebration

What did we ship this month? Alternatively, what didn't we ship to spare the world the horror?

  • (mkelly in absentia) Firefox Flicks winners announced, check them out!
  • (erikrose) DXR has new stage and prod servers, a dedicated indexing box, VCS blame/raw/diff support, and better JS highlighting.
  • (craigcook) New mozilla.org home page, featuring NOT a carousel slide show! Launched in 30 languages with more on the way. http://www.mozilla.org/?v=2
  • (lonnen) Socorro in the middle of its hundredth release right now!

Open Source Citizenship

Any updates with our libraries or with libraries we use? Anyone looking for help with a library they maintain?

  • (mkelly in absentia) django-browserid issue queue is ready for your love.
  • (erikrose) peep 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.6, 0.7, and 0.8 have been released. You can now paste the output right into requirements.txt. We fixed PyPI's unstable sorting. Added "peep hash" command. Works with old pip versions from 2010 (RHEL!). Supports installing into non-empty virtualenvs so you don't have to rebuild lxml each time. Been deploying Socorro for several weeks.
  • (erikrose) blessings 1.5.1 is a bug-fix release of the terminal formatting library.

New Hires / Interns

Anyone new that we want to induct into the secret order?

The Bikeshed / Roundtable

Anything else to talk about?
