  • In addition to the releases we're working on...
  • Still working with IT on off-hours Tinderbox support; hopefully we'll have more to announce on that next week.
  • Coop and IT have been working hard on getting more Macs for Community builds; we're working through the authentication issues to ensure those machines have access to the resources they'll need. We're likely to need some Tinderbox changes, so if you're a SeaMonkey, Lighting/Sunbird, and/or Thunderbird tinderbox hacker, and you can help us with these changes, the prize will be your very own Macs. See bug 371816 for details.
  • In March, we'll be focusing on build automation work; we're tracking this work in bug 355309. If any of those bugs sound interesting, or you're interested in helping out, check out the bug, or mosey into #build.
