Thunderbird v.next and branch tracking
Discussion so far in mozilla.dev.planning (link missing the first few posts).
Following discussion on irc today, several points came out from discussion about possibly moving to 1.9.1 for our main work:
- Core devs willing to help us come to a reasonable solution, possibly an intermediate one whilst working out when to move to hg fully etc (e.g. see bug 437059
- We don't want to re-invent the build system.
- Option A on SeaMonkey/1.9.1_Repository_Options may be the best solution for the time being and/or overall
- Would require a separate pull script for mozilla-central (at least whilst we're not in hg I believe).
- ted & co willing to help us get the build system working with that sort of layout (Standard8 needs to file bug)
- Depends on when we will ship.
- 1.9.0.x is already frozen.
- We need to define our release goals for Thunderbird 3.
- We don't have very many core patches that are Thunderbird-specific and have a high impact on core.
- 1.9.1.x may possibly slip into next year.
Full discussion on the talk page
- Next bugday on 05 June 2008.
- continued focus on recent bugs which have no comments/feedback
- nth10sd will be there for session 2 only.
- We may only have one staffed session for bugdays in the near future, until helpers' numbers increase.
- Status Updates
- reviewed patch to drop nsISupportsArray usage from addrbook where possible (bug 410177)
- reviewed reply quoting patches (bug 384599 and bug 23394)
- drove IMAP deadlock fix into tree (bug 434642)
- filed and worked on patch for compose window crasher bug, but it turned out to be an already-patched DUP (bug 436544)
- reviewed unit test setup/teardown cleanup patch (bug 434810)
- put together draft review requirements pages (see announcement)
- started reviewing nsIAbCard refactoring (bug 413260)
- misc other small reviews
- Mastering hg and gdb.
- Went on an assertion-finding spree. (12 found so far)
- Provided normal and full backtraces for each assertion trapped, using gdb.
- Did some work exploring the use of DOMi on Thunderbird trunk.
- Will work on some form of blogpost or wiki page describing this.
- Usual bugday, triage etc.
- Various reviews
- Investigated and pulled mozilla-central to allow me to commit some patches against core.
- Mac OS X Address Book
- Automated Testing
- We now have autocomplete for my domain working on toolkit interfaces (thanks to Neil)
- Main address book autocomplete in progress (bug 370306, basic search functionality in place with unit test.
- Still need to think about LDAP.
- Tried very hard to duplicate bug 367456, but it appears to have been mooted on the trunk. Another commenter says TB 18.104.22.168 w/lightning also no longer has the problem. There was a fair amount of short-term memory bloat and poor performance with the torture-test files though, which leads to...
- some pecobro enhancements to support with investigating leaks/bloat
- Made pecobro understand object allocation.
- Refactored pecobro to support caching all underlying data types, and no longer fuse/integrate the ASTs with the semantic cache (as suggested by dmose/dascher). This greatly improves the performance and makes it possible for people with more reasonable amounts of memory to run things.
- Will try and complete these pecobro changes/fixes and use to help track down some lightning performance issues soon.
- Global Database
- Lot of thinking/planning. Have looked at myk's snowl schema, posterity's original schema, my mods to posterity's schema, and clarkbw's examples from the newsgroup and previous proposed extension.
- justdave's WindowServer slow-down bug, bug 436897
- Spent a bunch of time trying to help remotely debug this and duplicate this locally (before the bug was logged).
- Still pending
- Mainly worked on bug 435153, a patch is submitted for review
- Blogged about the thinking and development process at sicakborek.wordpress.com
- Started to work on bug 436615
- Started to work on bug 413874 to adapt it to the branch
- Dale from penelope project has commented on imap plans. Good news, he is available for help. Planning to talk to him this week.
