Thunderbird Meeting Details


  • Who's taking minutes? --> rebron - may be out?
  • Minute taking Schedule. Talk to davida for schedule changes/additions.

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 landed 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



  • dmose: drive JS-in-mail discussion
    • 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.


  • need to announce new code freeze date on tinderbox
  • davida: will escalate issue of separate messaging crash-stats server
    • We're going to do it, gozer will address as an IT issue.
  • Gloda needs to be more documented in order to make the feature more visible to the users (asuth)
    • asuth should just do this, not an action required here.

Thunderbird 3 Beta 1

  • bienvenu is release driver
  • gozer is build engineer
  • String freeze from: 2008-11-13

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
