  • bwinton sent mockups of the final flow to various third parties.
  • bwinton doesn't have enough time to actually get the patch written on schedule, and so has asked Protz for help driving it home.
Test Pilot


Thunderbird Conversations

Andrew back from vacations, need to update my gloda patches. Lot of telemetry work happening: - I patched the about:telemetry extension to make it work with Thunderbird, - sent an email to the metrics team, they confirmed we would be able to aggregate the data by date, - I plan on pushing a patch to toolkit so that we have our own gloda sections in the telemetry reports, - I have an email ready to go asking our testing community to enable telemetry reporting (as soon as about:telemetry is approved). Once all of that is done, I plan on letting the stats accumulate for a couple weeks, then land the gloda patches, and compare the results.

Auto-resizing iframe review pending, probably won't get r+ until a few cycles.

Started writing mozmill tests for Thunderbird Conversations.
