Firefox 3


  • Blocker Prioritization
    • 14 P1s
    • 114 P2s
    • 181 P3s
    • Based on past performance (entirely subjective), feels like we should have about 35-45 or so P1s from that list, and 50-60 P2s.
    • Basically: Re-prioritize the bugs so we know what we should be working on.
  • Schedule for the next Beta: Proposed freeze Jan 22
  • bsmedberg has a patch in bug 396052 that would allow Firefox to be installed in directories with names outside the current native codepage, as well as open files (via file assocation double-click) whose name is outside the current codepage. It's a pretty invasive and regression-prone patch, however... how do we make the call on that kind of thing?
