Meeting Log

  • Attendees: mschroeder, berend, gary, sipaq, simon v, daniel, davida, mickey
  • Simon really would appreciate a task mode in Sunbird and points out that we don't have big selling points for Sunbird compared to lightning. While that's absolutely true, it's quite too late to get that done for 0.8, especially w.r.t. our limited resources. However, it's still open how such a task mode would look like, whether it's a tabbed approach or via mode buttons, ...
  • went thru the blocking list
  • mickey will be off for 1-2 months, shifting reviews to philipp and berend
  • There's trouble about repackaging lightning-wcap.xpi for universal mac. There's not much distinction anymore between lightning.xpi and lightning-wcap.xpi (as it used to be in 0.5), since the prototype dialog has become official in the meantime. The only distinction is that the wcap provider would be available by default and wcap's invitation UI is enabled (only in case a wcap calendar is actually configured). Proposal is to remove the lightning-wcap.xpi stuff which makes releasing far more easy and set the pref calendar.prototypes.wcap (we should consolidate code for 0.9).

Update on download numbers

  • We will probably hit the 2 million Sunbird downloads mark by tomorrow
    • Numbers broken down by release
      • 0.3 (597K)
      • 0.3.1 (496K)
      • 0.5 (483K)
      • 0.7 (400K)
      • 0.7 RCs (24K)
    • Real Sunbird download count is probably about one million higher, since we do not have any numbers on the 0.2, 0.3a1, 0.3a2 releases and the 0.5 RCs
  • Sunbird 0.7 downloads will probably hit the 400K mark tomorrow or on Friday
    • Sunbird 0.7 download rate is about 10% higher than the 0.5 download rate at the same time (90 days since release)
    • 395K vs. 361K (0.7 vs. 0.5 after 90 days)
  • We do not have download data for Lightning broken down by releases, but overall data indicates, that 0.7 is about 3-4 times as popular as 0.5 was.
    • 67K vs. 17K (01-13 to 01-23 2008 vs. 09-13 to 09-23 2007)
    • Quality of AMO download data in September/October/November 2007 is doubtful, so we shouldn't put too much thought into it
