as always, you can read the development meeting notes as well, but here are the big items:

  • development teams moving on to Firefox 3.6 blockers and work targeted at Firefox 3.7
  • some security reviews are still pending

  • lots of talk about being more aggressive about backing out patches which cause performance or functionality regressions


  • Firefox 3.6 Beta 1 with 53 locales
  • Two bugs with further string changes on my radar. If you have bugs that should be on there, make sure they're blocking-firefox3.6 or blocking1.9.2 and have the late-l10n keyword set.
  • When to do outreach for RC? 3-level outreach, news, group-mail, individual. Moved to a reply to the meeting announcement in .planning.
