Proposed Schedule (draft, not final)
- ship in 4Q/08 or 1Q/09
- first alpha in july
- when can we be API frozen?
- when can we expect to be feature frozen?
- first beta in august
- when can we expect features to land?
- KaiRo: feature freeze for platform is an important date for other apps building on the toolkit (both SM2 and TB3 look to be targetting 1.9.1)
- not at all set up on Mercurial
- need support from IT and Build to get this ready
- need to get this ready for the first beta
The list of open items as laid out in .planning:
- localizers need write access to hg.
- unclear status of existing access checks on hg
- unclear status of required access checks on hg
- need imports of cvs into l10n hg repositories
- hg convert worked at least for 'de'
- not sure if that's the right tool. Only import trunk? If so, how?
- compare-locales support now that client.mk doesn't offer LOCALES_$(app) anymore
- mxr support spanning all l10n repos
- that should enable us to use mxr search links for bugs spanning several localizations
- pushlog with file information, committer, and comment spanning all 3.1 localizations, both human readable and machine readable, with at least time span given.
- EXPAND_LOCALE_SRCDIR needs to at least resolve to where the l10n repos end up, http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/config/config.mk#892
- none this week
- build automation needs to be tested/confirmed as working with Mercurial
- down a man for the next few weeks
- offer major update from 3.0.1pre -> 3.1pre?
- not needed at this time
- upcoming bugzilla reorg
- might throw off triage queries
- everyone should review the changes that are about to be made
- earlier the better
