Thunderbird Meeting Details :


Action Items



  • Autoconfig process - work in progress
  • Muting status meeting - gozer


Thunderbird 3 Beta 3

  • Planned Freeze Dates ( All dates use time of 23:59 PST )
    • Slushy String freeze date: TBD
    • Slushy Code Freeze date: TBD
    • Firm String / Code freeze date: TBD
    • l10n-mozilla-1.9.1 freeze date: TBD
    • Target Build Ship date: TBD
  • dmose is release driver
  • gozer is build engineer
  • Search (bug 474701) will be landing over the next week or two and then we'll finish up the beta.
    • try server build while the patch is being reviewed
    • once it lands dates for b3 and b4.
  • Beta 3 stated as the release for all work with serious downstream work impact (ui, backend, l10n, etc). Anything that isn't like that should be pushed out into Beta 4.
  • Driver ownership of bugs
    • From a drivers conversation, requiring blocking bugs to be owned by drivers is being reconsidered. Drivers own too many bugs to drive them all. Changing this policy would helps the lists reflect reality better, so having blockers be owned by is now OK.

Thunderbird 3 Beta 4

  • Release Driver: Standard8
  • Build Engineer: gozer

Thunderbird 3

  • Please set bugs to assigned status (as well as owner to you) if you want to do them.
  • If you have other bugs assigned to you that you don't want to do, please reassign or discuss with drivers.
  • Infrastructure requirements are moving forward (AUS, 10.5 builders, statistics)

QA Updates

  • A few people were very active last week both :
    • in triaging bugs (with at lest one new active member)
    • and Filling new ones
  • This week will probably end up being a normal bugday - is there anything that devs would like to see tested at this point ?
  • Make sure to add qawanted keyword if you need more information or STR for a bug.
  • bug 492963 needs some attention as we suspect it's going to affect B3 users way more than b2.

Marketing Updates

  • Tracking PR of Google Wave. Good overview from Tim O'Reilly
  • Working with Get Satisfaction on updating the web site.
  • Evaluating Thunderbird icon refresh work.
