SeaMonkey Meeting Details


  • Who's taking minutes? -> Ratty
  • Nominees for Friends of the Fish Tank?

Action Items

(who needs to do what that hasn't been recorded in a bug) We should assign people to the open items.



  • Mnyromyr to coordinate the SeaMonkey response to this years Google Summer of Code.



  • Get permission from Google to use their geolocation JSON service [KaiRo]. We can still only wait on the Google front right now. Didn't hear anything about open Geolocation service yet. No easy solution in sight.
    • At the "State of the Map - Europe" OpenStreetMap conference, KaiRo will try to get people to team up and create an open service.

SeaMonkey 2.0.14

open blockers (1) blocker requests (0) fixed (27)

  • Based on Gecko, target April 26, see Releases, in sync with Firefox 3.5.19.

SeaMonkey 2.1 Beta 3

targeted (0) fixed (119)

  • Has been SHIPPED on 08 April, ~3100 downloads so far, ~XXX ADU.

SeaMonkey 2.1

open blockers (7) blocker requests (2) targeted (2) fixed (8)

  • Firefox 4.0 was released on 22nd March.
  • Don't fear being aggressive with blocker triage, If it isn't needed it doesn't block. By that same token, if you are able to fix a blocker please try and work on them before tackling any other bugs.
  • Help patches can go in at anytime.

Further 2.1 scheduling:

  • Please help updating the New 2.1 Features page as we go.
  • 2.1pre should be followed by our release (candidate), which can possibly be based on Gecko 2.0.1 (which is now guaranteed to come).
  • We should release within 6 weeks from FF4.
  • Managing the branching (or not) of comm-central for comm-20 will depend on the Messaging people.
  • There might not be any more official security updates to the 1.9.1 branch after the upcoming one, so we should get a stable release based on Mozilla 2.0 out as soon as we can.

Feature List, Planning

Bug statistics for last two (full) weeks: 55 new, 37 fixed, 28 triaged.

Open reviews/flags: 35 review 11 super-review 0 ui-review 6 feedback

Major wanted/needed features:


Needing help, Unowned, Stalled
  • bug 570004 Popup/"doorhanger" notifications [Neil].
    • Implementation moved to bug 595810.
    • Only lwthemes doorhangers are left to do.
    • NO l10n-impact
  • bug 606683 Allow customization of toolbar in Composer and MailNews Composition [IanN].
    • A lot of untangling needs to go on between the 3 editors that we have. We can expect a bit of code cleanup for 2.1 but full customization will probably go as it needs work on TB too which is taking a while to get reviews on, plus feedback from kaze.

We also should take a look at the other items on 2.1-wanted Also the nominations need triaging.

  • We will need to take a close look at Lightning, which is mainly targeting Thunderbird.
    • Lightning 1.0b4 seems to be targeted to be Gecko 2.0-based.
    • Due to recent Lightning patches/fixes, Lightning nightlies are now working again on SM trunk.

Needing help, Unowned, Stalled
  • bug 460953 kill-rdf port.
  • bug 436794 Enable Mac OS X system address book per default and add UI.
    • SM UI needed, unowned, helpwanted.
  • bug 449728 Drag tabs between windows.
  • bug 477845 Build a standalone (Gecko 2.0) Composer. [kaze]
    • kaze is currently busy with his new job so doesn't have much time to spend on this.
    • bug 477840 Backport KompoZer to Composer (Depends on bug 477845).
    • kaze has done a ton of work there. We still need to work out some organizational issues. At the moment there is no active interest from MoMo for bringing standalone composer into comm-central. That's something we (KaiRo and kaze) will have to negotiate with the Thunderbird team (dmose).
  • bug 507841 Port Bug 422814 - Make account configuration quick, easy, and more secure (autoconfig, Quick Account Setup).
  • bug 533908 SeaMonkey Mail: tabs not restored [misak].
  • bug 523274 Complete new default theme icon set.
  • bug 526210 Update the icon set for the SeaMonkey Modern Theme.
    • bug 548778 New communicator icons (based on Strata theme) for SeaMonkey. Some proposed icons got posted, we should take a look how to get that contribution into the product.
    • The rest is unowned so far.
  • bug 87098 [SeaMonkey] Delete key should delete location bar history list entry.
    • No l10n impact
    • (InvisibleSmiley: ) Neil said "Actually our location bar history doesn't and can't use autocomplete at all.", moving to

For now only a drop zone for those that surely will not make 2.1 any more.
