Sun 11:15-12:00 Rising to the Sun(bird) - How to get involved with the Calendar Project and where we are heading This presentation is a call to everyone to get involved. No matter if you prefer testing software (QA), designing interfaces or developing extensions or core code: We need you! The goal of this presentation is to show some interesting experiments you might be interested in developing, how you can use mozmill to easily record tests that help improve the software quality or what you can do as a designer if you have ideas on how to improve Calendar's visual appearance. Philipp Kewisch
Sun 12:00-13:00 Thunderbird 3: what's new, where is it heading, and how you can help After several years of hibernation, Thunderbird development has ramped up again in the last year especially. This talk is intended to give open source hackers an update on where Thunderbird is in its runup to the Thunderbird 3 release, what new systems are available for add-on developers, and how to get involved if you want to help fix email.

In the first part, David Ascher, one of the drivers of Thunderbird 3, will give an overview of the important changes that have either already landed, or are in various stages of development.

In the second part Ludovic Hirlimann, QA lead for Thunderbird, will explain how you can involve yourself into fixing email.
