Major Topics

  • improving information flow in a distributed team: Yammer? More open tool?

  • [GECKO platform / ddahl] A native property is now functional and has a test suite, however, still needs some tweaks to produce the proper JOSE formatted keys and assertions, see bug 665057
    • Question: DSA algorithm, NSS only provides 1024/128bit, does BrowserID default to 2048/256?
    • Question: are we moving to ECDSA only? Let's make sure NSS provides the correct curves
    • Action: I need a walk through of the existing JOSE JWT/JWK formatting produced by our code
  • [Findings] The Mozilla DOM team prefers event-drivin DOM APIs. They probably will frown on our callback-driven during review
