Release Engineering

Nothing from us this week.




  • Tons of new Firefox 3.1 documentation over the last week; only one major article left to write (on selectors). Everything else is relatively minor updates to existing documentation.
  • Working on other launch items with Marketing and need to review PR plan.


  • 3.1 PR plan awaiting feedback
  • 3.1 Reviewers Guide updates awaiting feedback
  • 3.1 Features page near final; one more review post webdev hand-off; speed chart from TRO still needs another rev;
  • "what's new" video - tentatively scheduled to be recorded 2/27
  • planning to do a beta-3 start page snippet 2-3 days post-release (unless anyone objects)


  • justin agreed to follow up with morgamic to ensure that we could throttle Major Update snippets on a per version / channel basis (to allow users to "Check for Updates..." to Firefox 3.1 on launch day, but not have the offer given to users who do not explicitly check) <-- This is bug 475145. Should that be marked blocking-firefox3.1+?
