SeaMonkey Meeting Details


  • Who's taking minutes? -> Ratty

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn't been recorded in a bug) We should assign people to the open items.



  • Get permission from Google to use their geolocation JSON service [KaiRo]. Contact at Google says: "We don't have a good estimate for when GLS will be opening up more broadly, but I will be sure to let you know when we take that step. Sorry that I can not be more specific at this time." - We can only wait right now.
    • KaiRo found out that the contact at Google changed. Also, discussing a possible open Geolocation service.


SeaMonkey 1.1.19 (1.x EOL)

  • 26 fixed bugs, mostly security issues
  • In parallel to Thunderbird (targeted March 15)
  • NOT all known security vulnerabilities fixed, but better than 1.1.18
  • Announcement will primarily be about 1.x EOL, with a pointer that a somewhat improved 1.1.19 is available, but real security is only found in the latest 2.0 update.

SeaMonkey 2.0.4

open blockers (3) blocker requests (2) fixed (54)

  • Based on Gecko, targeted for March 30.
  • Thunderbird 3.0.4 should be synched up with us as well this time.
  • If things work as planned, we'll have five versions to be released on the same day (FF 3.0.19/3.5.9/3.6.2, SM 2.0.4, TB 3.0.4) - see Releases - that can get really interesting.
  • The impact SM and TB make is that mirrors take longer to sync as it's more files - especially in the case where we have 5 releases with a number of locales.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for last two (full) weeks: 48 new, 15 fixed, 34 triaged.

  • Triage seems to pick up a bit now, but fixing slowed down a bit.

Major wanted/needed features:


  • bug 423281 Help updates.
    • InvisibleSmiley has been working on updating help.
    • bug 463903 (form autocomplete documentation).
    • FAQ to cover e.g. double-click / down arrow in form fields?
      • No progress to report.
  • bug 483282 Make sure normal SeaMonkey use doesn't pay a price for having venkman installed [Mnyromyr].
    • Needs at least a core patch landing for bug 364864 (nsICategoryManager::deleteCategoryEntry does not persist outside of component registration).
    • No progress to report.
  • bug 471346 Port GetDefaultFeedReader to SeaMonkey shell service [mcsmurf].
    • No progress to report.

  • bug 449728 Drag tabs between windows.
    • Jeffrey Lee, a Seneca student, is looking into that!
  • bug 498596 Places bookmarks.
    • KaiRo has everything that's directly in the browser window working (haven't tested all context menu entries in toolbar items though), no management yet, but started a thread about that on m.d.a.seamonkey to know which way to go.
  • bug 480734 Satchel data editor ("Form Manager").
    • unowned so far.
  • bug 477845 Build a standalone (Gecko 1.9.3) Composer.
    • kaze will look into that once KompoZer 0.8 is done.
    • bug 477840 Backport KompoZer to Composer (Depends on bug 477845).
    • kaze has done a ton of work there. We're still trying to work out some organizational issues.
  • bug 523274 Complete new default theme icon set.
    • A list of TODO icons is up in the bug.
    • Still needs quite a bit of work.
    • bug 522023 is working on improving the browser globe in task icons, etc..
  • bug 526210 Update the icon set for the SeaMonkey Modern Theme.
    • Some proposed icons got posted, we should take a look how to get that contribution into the product.
    • The rest is unowned so far.
  • bug 521927 Make Search, Folder Location and Views widgets for MailNews customizable toolbars.
    • status/progress?
  • bug 545110 Add/port about:support (Troubleshooting Information page) to SeaMonkey
    • Depends on bug 518607 Move the Troubleshooting Information page into toolkit so other apps like Thunderbird and SeaMonkey can use it.

We also should take a look at the other items on wanted-seamonkey2.1+

  • We need to find a solution for Lightning, which is targeting Thunderbird 3.1 now.
