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]. We can still only wait on the Google front right now. Didn't hear anything about open Geolocation service yet. No easy solution in sight.

SeaMonkey 2.0.9

  • SeaMonkey 2.0.9 SHIPPED on October 20th.
  • Synchronized with Firefox 3.5.14.

SeaMonkey 2.0.10

open blockers (0) blocker requests (0) [1] (2)

  • SeaMonkey 2.0.10 is a chemspill release SHIPPED on October 28th to fix bug 607222.
  • Synchronized with Firefox 3.5.15.
  • 2.0.10 had a turnaround time of just about 24 hours from "let's get going on building" until "it's shipped and public" - even though we had some build automation system hiccups.
  • Thanks to Callek for help on the build pocess of both those release.

SeaMonkey 2.0.11

open blockers (0) blocker requests (0) fixed (8)

  • Based on Gecko, target date TBD, see Releases.
  • Release schedule will be synchronized with the next Firefox 3.5 release (3.5.16) in early December (tentative).

SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 1

targeted (1) fixed (97)

  • Has been SHIPPED on October 20th, ~3500 downloads so far, ~500 ADU [2].

SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 2

open blockers (1) blocker requests (2) targeted (2) fixed (23)

(Further 2.1 scheduling:)

  • Please help updating the New 2.1 Features page as we go.
  • Plans for 2.1: 6-8 weeks per milestone, b2 (feature freeze) probably in early December; final to be decided later.
  • Unsure how this fits Firefox 4 plans as they are still trying to get to their feature freeze.
  • Firefox 4 now officially being in early 2011, which gives us a bit more time.
  • Beta 1 on PPC is broken.
    • We will probably seek to EOL it by getting i386/x86_64 universal builds up somehow.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for last two (full) weeks: 55 new, 22 fixed, 8 triaged.

  • Fix rate is good but needs to improve, triage continues to be weak. Should do more there.
  • Good further triage targets could come out of looking at the component bug counts, pick yours!
  • How about a triage week to get help from the community?
    • It would be good to get some input and possibly help from Anthony Hughes (Mozilla QA).
    • tonymec or InvisibleSmiley would know about the process.
    • Aqualon will setup a wiki-page at Proposed SeaMonkey Triage Week to collect ideas and get a plan until the next meeting on 2010-11-16.

Major wanted/needed features:


Needing help, Unowned, Stalled
  • bug 460953 kill-rdf port.
  • bug 436794 Enable Mac OS X system address book per default and add UI.
    • SM UI needed, unowned, helpwanted.
  • bug 449728 Drag tabs between windows.
  • bug 477845 Build a standalone (Gecko 2.0) Composer. [kaze]
    • kaze is currently job hunting so doesn't have much time to spend on this.
    • bug 477840 Backport KompoZer to Composer (Depends on bug 477845).
    • kaze has done a ton of work there. We still need to work out some organizational issues. At the moment there is no active interest from MoMo for bringing standalone composer into comm-central. That's something we (KaiRo and kaze) will have to negotiate with the Thunderbird team (dmose).
  • bug 523274 Complete new default theme icon set.
  • 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.

  • bug 566138 Better integration with Windows 7 taskbar
    • no progress at the moment.
  • bug 576970 Port Sync UI to SeaMonkey trunk [InvisibleSmiley]
    • Updated to include latest changes; waiting for reviews from IanN and Neil.

We also should take a look at the other items on 2.1-wanted Also the nominations need triaging.

  • We will need to take a close look at Lightning, which is mainly targeting Thunderbird.
    • Lightning 1.0 beta 1 is for SM2.0 and TB3.0, 1.0 beta 2 is for TB3.1 (Gecko 1.9.2), 1.0 beta 2 will probably be Gecko 2.0-based.
