    • Have some local changes to account for architectural changes.
    • Examining both xpfe/ and toolkit/ based code for other locations that may need fixing to ease final review.

  • bug 390025 Kill-wallet (password manager)
    • Standard8 has started on some test cases for existing code (to provide reassurance that we end up migrating properly).
  • bug 382187 Places history
    • small pieces of local improvements on KaiRo's machine, but waiting for review comments before doing more work.
  • bug 36810 Session restore
    • waiting for review, patch for turning to error page also ready (bug 413385). Needs help with css/ui for error page patch.
  • bug 394288 / bug 413385 Toolbar customization
    • The toolbarbutton size/mode sub-bug has a few more nits to address.
    • No progress at the moment. I'll resume working on this at the end of October. Ratty.
    • Toolkit bug 407725 is still waiting for reviews from gavin.
  • bug 456757 Modern theme update
    • No progress reports available.
  • bug 460699 Make the default theme look better on mac
    • Nothing started yet, but stefanh will look at it.
  • bug 453797 (Port bug 392303 (Simplify installer changes) to SeaMonkey installer)
    • mcsmurf is making progress, patch almost ready for review. The patch is quite big, though - need to check what is the best way to get this reviewed. Will try to split the patch for easier review.
  • bug 433254 Implement Mac shell service for SeaMonkey
    • There's a WIP patch in the bug, no further progress expected for a couple of months. However, since we have a structure now (windows shellservice), work shouldn't be too difficult.
  • Need to handle bug 420506 (Thunderbird kill-rdf)
    • Two bugs filed to ensure it's on the tracking-list:
      • bug 460952 Ensure Thunderbird kill-rdf doesn't break SeaMonkey
      • bug 460953 Port jminta's kill-rdf to SeaMonkey where applicable


Status Updates from developers - what are you working on, what's the progress, any other comments? (feel free to add yourself to the list if your name is missing and you have interesting status)




  • Probably unable to attend this meeting again :(
  • Worked on DLMGR more
  • Actively reviewing patches to comm-central's (and watching other build* bugs in that area)


  • bug 456668 - Multiple forwarded (attached) messages give the same name - been digging into that one with help from bienvenu.
  • Reviewing various help patches.


  • Some build system cleanup and sync work
  • bug 459413 Geolocation prompt - ran into problems with what seemed to be a simple patch
  • Updated both my themes (EarlyBlue and LCARStrek) for 2.0a1
  • As always, my blog has more detailed status about my work


  • Continued working on bug 453797 (Port Bug 392303 (Simplify installer changes) to SeaMonkey installer), patch is almost ready for review, need to fix some small things
  • The patch will probably be one big patch, will try to separate the patch into smaller patches


  • bug 36810 (session restore)
  • bug 459550 (Port Bug 448976 (turn the Session Restore prompt into an error page) to SeaMonkey)
  • bug 425480 (non-ASCII characters should be decoded in the urlbar)
  • bug 455877 (port Bug 254714 to SeaMonkey)
  • Bug reporting and bug triage.


  • just reviews - RL overflow ;-) ; probably better after Moz Camp Europe






  • Gave gristmill a try on Thunderbird. Potentially good QA tool, give feedback to them and start using it.
  • Thunderbird release driving work now almost zero, back to fixing bugs!


  • Started to work on some Help bugs


Any other business?

  • Someone will need to look into porting kill-rdf stuff to SeaMonkey, as the kill-rdf repository is now at the point where the main folder setup is now entirely divorced from RDF. I (jcranmer) would nominate such a bug to be blocking SM 2.0, but I am not a SM developer.
    • If this repo landing breaks seamonkey, then it is *definately* blocking, and I'd suggest blocking the landing. (--Justin Wood (Callek))
    • If not, I'd say "wanted SM2" but not "blocking" ;-) (--Justin Wood (Callek))
    • Two bugs filed (bug 460952 and bug 460953, this topic is now in the Longer-Term SeaMonkey 2 Planning list.
  • Need to get Venkman to work properly again on trunk.
    • At least some parts depends on js fixes in mozilla-central.
    • Who works on Venkman these days?
  • We need to look into porting thundertab (tabbed mail interface) as Lightning currently relies on that Thunderbird feature.
  • IanN, KaiRo and Mnyromyr will be in Barcelona this weekend.
