Mark bugs needing strings with status white board — [affects l10n]

  • We need to drive bugs with large string changes, e.g., archive, auto config, activity manager

Thunderbird 3

  • we now have component drivers so that people actually own keeping subsets of the blocking list well-triaged
  • bug list much more believable, thanks to last week's work
  • things to file & triage:
    • component drivers: blocking+ / blocking? bugs
    • dmose: message reader bugs
  • new triage rules
    • to stay on blocking+ list, a bug must be owned by someone, even if that's (temporarily) the component driver.
      • owned-by-driver bugs should have [needs owner] in status whiteboard
  • to think about:
    • when do we branch? (i suspect immediately after b2)
    • when do we lock down the branch for only blocking+ and approved+ (i suspect a couple of weeks after b2)
    • There will be a TB 3 beta 3 (milestone created in bugzilla)

QA Updates
