QA Updates

  • Xmas, new year period was slower with bug input.
  • Having the first triage day of this year, this coming Thursday

  • Planned for the coming weeks :
    • Reorganize the QA wiki pages
    • Tests for 3.0.1
    • Planning for 3.1a1


  • topcrashes mostly unchanged from Thunderbird/StatusMeetings/2009-12-22
  • only 1 of our top 5 crashes received significant attention in last 30-40 days - outlook seems bleak for getting these into 3.0.1, perhaps even 3.0.2
  • brief analysis of crashes by component, based on signature of top 100 = 53% of crashes
    • 5% - extensions
    • 6% - no stack in the report
    • 14% - storage
    • 19% - oom and the like, so cause is unclear
    • 28% - core
    • 27% - thunderbird

TODO / In Progress


  1. Draft Support Workflow Document <-- Feedback please! Edit the page, etc.

      1. Expanded Columns e.g. for IMAP size - missing from folder Pane - workaround: use extra folder columns add-on - GS topic, [bug]

  3. SUMO for MoMo aka SuMoMo - SuMoMo project plan
    1. theming done but awaiting SSL widget code from GS & Gozer push of theming SVN updates
    2. since SuMoMo uses SSL, waiting for GS to give us GS search widget code that we can put on the sidebar that works with SSL, expected a fix before Christmas (not rocket science since since all the GS widgets except the Satisfaction Search widget that we are using allow SSL, followed up with GS developer January 4)
