0.5 Status

  • Over the past week a fair bit of stuff that landed
  • We got moved onto our own mac tinderbox
    • There are some issues w.r.t. talkback
    • Got all other issues with it resolved
  • Some blockers have landed:
    • lightning preferences landed
    • caldav changes
    • colors to the lightning calendars
    • drag and drop fix
    • undo/redo stack
  • mvl and lilmatt: will check out the items on the blocking list and see what is remaining and triage those.
  • Patches that need attention
    • Alarm slider that ssitter made would be nice to have for 0.5 - currently in UI review
    • Bug 362698 - Caldav etags - this might break L10N string freeze
    • Strings that would change would be two dialogs that would appear to notify the user that the items have changed on the server
      • We might see more people trying to use CalDav once Apple releases the Lepoard server
    • Bug 374757 - Lightning Always tries to send an invitation if the attendees are entered.
      • This would add a check box to the event dialog to prevent this from constantly trying to send an invitation
    • The net of this would be about 5 strings total added (for both bugs)
    • The caldav is definitely important because it addresses a data loss issue.
    • We should also take the iTIP invitation issue as well because it definitely breaks the WCAP provider (since it doesn't need to send invitations via email).
    • The invitation problem may need to be another of the provider capabilities so that each provider can quickly determine what its default behavior should be.

Gdata Provider

  • Should new patches land? Do they need review?
  • We should develop peers for the Gdata provider for people who are comfortable with touching that code
  • In the meantime, Phillip ought to pick folks that are in the blanket developers to review the patches just to sanity check the patches
  • So, we will have a review on the Gdata code and then people can become peers on that code after they get familiar with the code via reviewing it.
  • Clint and Joey are good people to do reviews on that since they use it.

Cal Connect

  • May 7 - 11 at Boeing in Seattle
  • If anyone wants to go to that to represent us, that would be good.
  • Matt will be talking to folks including Clint and Frank Hecker of the Mo Foundation. to look into funding people to go to the interoperability and test fest up there.


  • Thomas (tbe) has been assigned to another team. (effective immediately) He will finish what he has left open, but after that, he will not be able to contribute anything further.
  • Sun will be changing the contractor for the telephone conference so the phone number will change from next week on. Mickey will post the changes to the wiki page.
