Thunderbird 3

QA Updates

  • Top Crashes ordered by assignee
  • Testday on Build1 of TB3.0b2 participation seems low based on the numbers of bugs opened.
  • Build for OpenSuse was present - Announced on planetsuse.
  • Test run results being processed in Litmus coverage almost 100%.
  • Need to better communicate which build to use with the test- runs.
  • Issues with crash stats query - the tools is unusable - making it very difficult to report top crashers to development.
  • Would be nice to have a dummy extension that would install on any version of thunderbird.
  • Same thing would be cool for a theme (but probably less feasible).
