  • mconley, rkent, jcranmer, irving, wsmwk

Action items from last meetings

  • [jcranmer] Ask bienvenu or someone else about the gmail authentication changes for Thunderbird
    • "I need to send up a follow-up email", "I've been assured that some people were discussing it, but I didn't hear back"
  • [standard8] contact sshagarwal to send something for FotT

Current status and discussions

  • Thunderbird 24.6.0 went out today! \o/
  • Beta and Earlybird channels will be updating in the next few days, as per usual.
  • Cache 1 vs Cache 2 conversion thing (TB, particularly IMAP provider, uses the old Firefox cache internally and Firefox has a new 100% async cache - and when the switched over, that hurt us).
    • We're going to need to switch over to the new cache, or take ownership of the old cache, which wouldn't be great.

Critical Issues

  • Bug 1021684 - Update Filelink implementation to new APIs
    • We're using deprecated APIs, and we need to switch over by July 1st! Apparently, we've been using deprecated APIs for a while. :/ Does anybody have cycles to drive this?
      • Isn't there a GSoC student working on Filelink for IB? If so, how terrible would it be for us to redirect him to attack this?


  • 31 is coming soon!

Round Table


  • Still reviewing. Yay!


  • Last 6 weeks, watching xpcshell tests, and trying to keep the tree open
  • Started working with GSoC student, and making progress on the project (maildir tests)

Question Time

  • rkent: What would it take to get Standard8 into these meetings?
    • Would it be possible to change the meeting time to accommodate Standard8?
  • rkent: Is it possible to have a get-together? How do we make that happen?
    • There might be a "everybody in engineering" work-week happening in the Fall. That _might_ occur in Europe, not sure. It'd be offsite. Maybe we could piggyback off that.
  • rkent: Is the status of MoCo staff working on TB any different from volunteers?
    • Not really, no.

Action Items

  • irving to ping Standard8 about FotT for sshagarwal
  • mconley to talk to clokep about stuff
    • Done - the GSoC student is going to try to tackle this. clokep estimates one or two days work.
  • wsmwk to follow up with Ludo about a testing plan for 31 and announcement to get testers on board
  • irving to ask Standard8 about a new meeting time that works with him
  • rkent to start the discussion on getting a get-together going.
  • mconley to talk to mhoye about funding access
    • Done - waiting on callback.
