Thunderbird Meeting Details


Calls For Help

  • davida would appreciate assistance on the autoconfiguration branch. (The awesome create-a-new-account screen where you just enter your e-mail address and it figures out most/all of the details for you.) One particular area that could use assistance is handling certificates in the connection detection logic.
    • bienvenu has done some work in bug 429843 on sorting out the certificate handling for incoming email.
      • bienvenu says : cert exception dialog likely to land for beta 1 with no string changes (existing strings are in nss)
      • dmose says: I need to make a separate pref for each different reading contexts. Document it and make a patch for it. Should be ready for review by thursday.

Action Items


  • need to announce new code freeze date on tinderbox


  • dmose: drive JS-in-mail discussion
  • davida: will escalate issue of separate messaging crash-stats server
    • Crash-stats is looking reasonable at the moment. Do we still want to do this?
    • We would like our own server, but it's not as urgent as it was.
  • davida: needs to identify the major work items for thunderbird 3 and break them down by the beta/release they will be in.
    • hoping to do as a group this week.
  • Gloda needs to be more documented in order to make the feature more visible to the users (asuth)
  • From the Alpha 3 post-mortem (individuals should take your own items and go through them):
    • wsmwk: Need to define what tests (e.g. smoketests/basic functional/unit tests etc) should go where and where they are filed.
    • tb-drivers: Go through current MailNews/TB relnote bugs and work out what is really necessary - low priority.


  • standard8: Generate some mozmill example scripts, and encourage others to use mozmill and file bugs to help improve it.
    • jminta has written some of these and they are in standard8's review queue.
    • jminta got nice code coverage results with mozmill
  • gozer: ask for 100% sampling of Thunderbird on existing crash-test server (bug 463277)

Thunderbird 3 Beta 1

  • bienvenu is release driver
  • gozer is build engineer
  • String freeze date: 2008-11-13
  • Code Freeze date: was 2008-11-18 now TBD
  • 3.0b1 testday 1 went well, decent participation (5-10). Identified several bugs
  • davida/brian want the exptoolbar in enough of a good shape so it could be promoted to the beta 1 users (start page suggested add-on)
  • Beta 1 is number 1 priority at this time, in case anybody wasn't sure.

Thunderbird 3

  • Draft Thunderbird:Thunderbird3:DevRoadmap identifies major work items on the plate for Tb3 -- much of it needs scheduling, owning, breakdown.
    • DevRoadmap is updated. What left to do on Calendar is not clear.
    • Overall progress is very good.
    • folks interested in helping with front-end stuff, some simple, should ask in #maildev

QA Updates

  • bug 464247 - w32 build symbols missing since 2008-10-30 - impedes identifying top crashers on trunk
  • Mozmill
    • Adding mozmill tests to our unittest builds sounds like a good idea
    • MozMill + TB integration itself seems quite simple
    • How do we run these tests ?
      • One at a time ?
      • In batches ?
      • With what profile ?
    • We need a framework for the tests to be able to specify what they need
    • Standard8 will file more bugs and will likely try and land what he already has
    • Gary suggests that we figure out a path to converting Litmus tests to MozMill
    • Gary suggested using special tests days to push this forward.
