SeaMonkey Meeting Details


  • Who's taking minutes -> IanN

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn't been recorded in a bug)

  • IanN to triage blocker nominations for 2a3.

SeaMonkey 2 Alpha 3

Bug Queries

open blockers all blockers blocker requests

  • Plans for freeze:
    • Thunderbird looks like it will be pushing out again from 5th February 2009 for one or two weeks due to access to resources during FOSDEM. We will go for same freeze dates as Thunderbird 3.0b2. Gives more time to land a few more things.

Longer-Term SeaMonkey 2 Planning

open wanted wanted requests

Major wanted/needed features:

  • bug 381157 Download manager backend.
    • status/progress - Callek was investigating if we could land the switch without progress dialogs for now, which would be easier to get up and running. Neil needs to OK that approach but it depends on whether we can open a placeholder dialog or no dialog at all.
      • Post-meeting, Neil conferred with Callek and approved this approach. Will be with a placeholder dialog.
  • bug 472001 UI for download manager
    • Review comments addressed. Some follow-up bugs filed for further issues. The tree-based UI for download manager should be more or less ready.
  • bug 390025 Kill-wallet (password manager).
    • landed for 2.0a3
    • Most easy regressions fixed.
    • Known/Possible Regressions:
      • bug 474115 - standard8 in discussions
      • bug 474846 - Data loss by migration to signons.sqlite (due to forms logins)
  • bug 36810 Session restore.
    • Waiting for reviews.
    • ajschult has made it through most of the code that actually interfaces with SeaMonkey and which is probably the most important part to review carefully. However there is still a substantial amount of sessionstore backend to review.
    • Suggest to rs+ the session store backend on the grounds that it's been working in Firefox for quite a while and do a post-facto review once ajschult has the time.
    • Neil can work on sr+ in parallel.
  • bug 394288 / bug 413385 Toolbar customization.
    • bug 471372 (Customizable Toolbars in Navigator v2) has landed.
    • Dependent toolkit bug 471508 (Make the toolboxChanged() callback return useful information) filed. Patch is still waiting for review.
    • bug 406780 (In OSX The customizeToolbars window should be in a <panel> popup) I am working on getting navigator customizable toolbars working properly on OSX (but I will need someone with OSX to help test my patches). Currently stuck on trying to get the open panel to show some content - Ratty.
    • Need a fix for OSX menubars once customization is turned on.
    • bug 413385 (Implement Customizable Toolbars in SeaMonkey MailNews) is on hold until the OSX issues are fixed.
  • bug 456757 Modern theme update
    • The next step is to file bugs/patches for each sub-module under mozapps/ in order to get reviewed. Ideally a graphically oriented person should to drive this - helpwanted.

  • Fixed (or in-progress) SeaMonkey bugs:
    • bug 390025 Move to LoginManager and remove wallet from SeaMonkey; Uncomment Login Manager code

  • And working on other areas... like
    • infrastructure for running tests
    • filing bugs for leaks in (TUnit and Reftest) tests
    • doing an (experimental) Windows mozilla-central SeaMonkey build, reporting to bug 470184 issue tracking; hoping for bug 464325 new tinderboxes.
