    • I (rkent) hope to respond to review comments today.

Action items from last meetings

  • Thunderbird Council reorganization: we'll discuss this in the Council directly and do some reorganization. This is not a forever governance plan, but we need to be practical given the many demands of the moment.
    • I (rkent) sent a proposal to the Council two weeks ago, now I need to badger a few people to give responses and decisions. Gerv has a process of voting to approve the slate using tb-planning that he will be running.

jcranmer

  • Review queue is still backlogged
    • Most complicated review at this point is the JSAccount stuff
  • Looking at JS-ification concerns, see mdat/tb-planning post
    • Current status of JS protocol libraries:
      • SASL: Complete, except for NTLM, GSSAPI, and EXTERNAL (not that it's easy to pull in)
      • Email-socket: prototyping along with NNTP client
      • NNTP client: I want to test replacing our C++ implementation with this once JSAccount is finished
      • JSMime: I have untested prototypes for message composition for below
  • Working on improving JS send implementation
    • Current idea is to try to use an internal interface to break the patches into smaller sets
  • PSA: if you're touching anything in nsMsgSend or nsMsgCompUtils (or anything else in mailnews/compose except for nsMsgCompose), PLEASE ADD AN XPCSHELL TEST (or a mozmill test if not possible via xpcshell)... if you don't, it will probably break within a year!

sshagarwal

  • Apologies for being invisible for quite some time
  • Completed delivery format status being persisted in draft feature request: bug 1202165
  • Will be working on Address book visibility issues in AB window and composition sidebar

aceman

  • We need decision on {{bug|584313)) from a mailnews peer if it can go in (was looked at by Neil and comments were solved)
    • Magnus make the call if needed.
  • 1202165 is ready in code (needs review from jcranmer, who gave r- due to test failure). I just work on some additional mozmill tests.
