Thunderbird Meeting Details
- Hg integration of calendar (see long thread on the planning newsgroup)
- Philip and KaiRo were here, but not bsmedberg, so punting
- dmose to set up next meeting
- Other issues:
- Easier to go from two repos to one than vice versa (?)
- hg has slower initial download (is it important?)
- What should the structure be?
- How should we plan to QA alpha2?
- nth10sd's last week -> need new QA
- 5 platforms for litmus test & BST for Windows
- XP, Vista, OS X (PPC), OS X (Intel), Linux
- Need someone to take up head QA (wsmwk?)
- One person to take each (one could take multiple platforms)
- Future milestones
- Current schedule gives for 5 milestones through March
- RC 1 in January or March?
- January - beta 1 comes after alpha 2
- March - less time for slippage
- Date-driven release, not feature-driven
- Probably better to do sooner rather than shiny new features
- Use of priorities
- Not much use for wanted-alpha, use priorities instead?
- blocking-alpha, blocking-3, wanted-3 keep
- No objections to strategy
- Most (all but two) with an owner
- Keep list shrinking
- bugday keeps on chugging
- last week set yet another new record for bugs changed and touched
- From the current foci: IMAP UNCOnfirmed dropped 16% in last 12 days, estimate similar if not greater drop in next 2 weeks; UNCOnfirmed "recent bugs with no responses" and "General" - counts not going up, but also not going down
- this week - hopefully with 3 staffed sessions (more likely 2?)
- Note the impending bmo reorg (date TBD), and concurrent, proposed mailnews cleanup. Feedback needed. bugmail warning
- The above activities affect the mailnews subset of bugs from previously proposed "patch day", which intends to review and clean up "old patches". The proposed mailnews cleanup suggests triaging/touching this subset now, before the reorg+cleanup hits.
- What should be done with these bugs?
- close if no longer valid, otherwise comment as to the state of the bug and the patch(s), is it wanted-TB3? or worthy of blocking-TB3, ...
- change to default QA if needed
- assign bug to yourself, someone else with their permission, or nobody
- Affected bugs (not all are old and need attention, but most do):
- What should be done with these bugs?
- work days with Emre & David
- met with MoFo Executive Director candidate
- roadmap work (hope to have a draft up tonight)
- more module-owner stuff
- myk has agreed to be a peer of an (unowned) RSS module
- lots of misc community stuff; a few reviews
- last formal week of internship
- no worries, I will still be around in IRC / Bugzilla / email though. :)
- may be sporadic in the next few weeks after Friday though.
- all in all, I hope I finish my internship with Thunderbird in a better state than it was in, when I first started months ago.
- last bugday was amazing, see QA updates above.
- (ongoing) discussions about impact of Bugzilla reorg.
- poking ppl wrt. old Thunderbird security bugs, e.g. bug 360800

- Automated Testing
- Most of POP3 fakeserver implementation written, some issues with socket closing/reconnection. Possibly won't pick up again until after Shredder a2.

- bug 441530 Toolkit autocomplete incorrectly sets "nomatch" attribute (almost ready for review)
- bug 441526 Implement highlightNonMatches, patch written, needs tests and possible xpfe port.
- Suspect the autofillonmatch will require interface changes, won't be suitable for 1.9.0 branch.
- Password Manager
- Started to document more information about MailNews and how Password Management/URLs/protocol handlers currently work, to try and get my head around the issues we are facing.
