Highlights / Notices

  • QA: Firefox 4 RC Test Plan up for review
    • Approach: We would like to qualify the RC after 3+ days of testing, then continue with the testing activities listed in the plan while the build is used by a larger audience before final sign-off.
  • RelEng will be branching the mozilla-2.0 repository off of mozilla-central to do the RC build(s).
    • Details still being worked out, stay tuned!
