Prioritizing security features
- Concern that we're falling behind Chrome and even IE on some security features
- See Brandon's email to security-group (private list) for details on the concern
- Fixing and blogging would be good PR in addition to protecting users and sites
- "EverythingElseSmash": prioritization & getting help from the platform team
- Brandon & Ian will be triaging the long list of sg:low and sg:want bugs next week
- Should also ensure we have bugs on the security features that the Chrome & IE teams have been blogging about.
- Grouping a set of related bugs into a project / feature page / metabug can help get people interested
Security roadmap changes
- Most of the roadmap is now automatically generated from feature pages
- Feature pages can be on multiple roadmaps now ("secondary roadmap" in wikimedia)
- [chofmann] Hotel updates
- Caesars extensions (e.g. for people staying for DEFCON) done
- Caesars out of rooms, so late signups will be staying somewhere else (Flamingo?)
- Attendees, please update https://intranet.mozilla.org/ConferencesSchedule/Blackhat2011
- Party signups
- Talk signups. Let's indicate which talks we're going to.
- Dinner signups
- What should we discuss with PR beforehand?
- Always ok to say "I don't know, I'll get back to you"
- JIT compiler talk
- SSL controversies (cert ui, dnssec, protocol holes)
- Schedule a meeting? Start an email thread with BH attendees and PR team?
- dveditz suggests having user.js only override defaults, not user-set prefs
- Should we raise a PR stink about this?
