- tracking-tb38 flags
- 38.3.1 bug 1211160 calendar 188.8.131.52 is a workaround for 38.3.0 — NEW, firstname.lastname@example.org — Thunderbird Version 38.3 Buttons not working menu items // bug 1211291 - Folders are visible, but messages are not. (?related to bug 1211358 lightning chrome.manifest not updated in 38.3.0 ?)
- 42.0b1 FIXED IN B2 - bug 1199957 Thunderbird hangs (addon manager, web content, cache)
- nightly (3 bugs blocking builds, all are assigned) - bug 1195442 - Mac builds broken ~1 month on nightly
- rkent is working on it - bug 1183490 - (dataloss) New emails do not adhere to sort by order received
- Plan is to understand issues in converting completely to nextKey = ++lastKey for non-IMAP, then plan how much to implement for 38.3.0 A simple fix of the dataloss is probable. I have a try patch that does the nextKey = ++lastKey that works, now I need to think about patch for 38 (bug 1202105 needs to go to trunk and 38)
- update 2015-10-20, patches have been posted but waiting for reviews for 2 weeks (aceman will look at those)

- bug 769604 - C-C font size toolbar button and change increase/decrease size function - awaiting review.
- Upcoming meeting with MoFo and pEp in Toronto. Wayne, Cloke, Rkent from Thunderbird.
- Personal development work: integration of SkinkGlue into c-c as JsAccount
- Investigated Github atom/electron as a development environment for a post-Gecko Thunderbird. It would be really good to have some partners in long-term work for Thunderbird. Gecko Thunderbird is dying, is there any debate about that?
- Long-term, we need a strong, donating user community to support Thunderbird. I've been playing with names, registered Thundernest as .com, .net, ,org. .io, github, twitter, facebook, and slack. It is really rare to have a meaningful logo like that that can be registered so widely, so learn to love it!
- Who would be good candidates for a Thunderbird Council nominating committee?
- Mailnews patch expectations: comments, test descriptions, using markdown.
- ADI exceeded 9.5 million this week, new record.
- Huge efforts going on in extensions, not sure how that will impact us.
- Following the unexpected HTML-composed email downconversions to plain-text causing dataloss to users: bug 414299, bug 584313, bug 1210244, bug 1204379, bug 136502. WADA and Thomas D. are driving it and I am trying to implement what makes sense. Nothing landed yet, but we tackle it from multiple angles and it seems we understand the problems.
- new account provisioner: Are there currently any providers other than Gandi? Would it be worth trying to find some more?
